Busy Busy Busy

I am so so so sorry for the lack of posts last week. I had so many awesome things planned, I had pictures taken, but I had small amounts of computer time…. Our internet is slow slow slow…… So, when I have a teeny amount of time to write using the computer my fellow blogger boyfriend and I share, of course the internet goes haywire. Instead of worrying about it I jumped into all kinds of other activities…..

4. Grilling delicious food

5. Most importantly, spending time with friends

Check back for the full stories throughout the week!
