Lindz's Bachelorette Weekend

Weekend with the girls was a blast! Lindz and Dave are getting married in two weeks and we celebrated for Lindz on Sat. with a day at the beach and a night out in OC, MD. The group of girls were a blast, new and old faces celebrated for one special occasion! So enough of the small talk, how about some pics!!!

Lindz and I grew up together through dance and school, and have been the best of friends since 7th grade. I am honored to be a bridesmaid and couldn't be happier! Love you Shitz!

Wine torches

I found a cool DIY project on involved wine bottles and a few pieces of metal. Well those few pieces of metal happen to be copper and extremely hard to find. After an hour and a half Lowe's trip we came back with all the pieces we needed to create our own wine bottle torches or sconces. We are going to hang them around the back yard, two on the fence and two on the back of our house. This should be super cute when complete!

Finished product! We now have two on the fence and two on the back of the house! Hopefully these will keep the bugs away!!

Garden... Fried Green Maters

SO this time my computer is actually back and working!

My garden has been growing out of control this summer! It just recently started to wind down. The squash, zucchini and cucumbers are about gone but the Maters and peppers are thriving! A few pics of our fruits of labor!

I also started saving some compost under the sink and added some of that juice to the remaining tomato's and peppers!

The fried green maters were wonderful, something I will make again! I can not take credit for the green tomatoes though, and yes, aren't they huge! I staked my best friends tomatoes (cause he had not yet!) and knocked a few off. So I decided not to waste them and try my hand at frying!

Finished Product! Oh so yummy! And I fried them in EVOO so they were slightly healthier.
