Grilled Blueberry Pork Chops

Happy Friday!  I hope everyone had a fabulous week.  The peak of my week was probably this gorgeous pork chop that we made on the grill.  Our meals can get very repetitive sometimes, especially in the summer when all we want to do is grill!

Summer Cobb Salad

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. My weekend was a good one especially because it officially feels like summer. This was the first weekend that I really got to enjoy our new house and relaxing out on our beautiful deck.

It was filled with relaxing, yoga, catching up with friends, and enjoying time with family. Sunday was gorgeous out. When we went grocery shopping at Whole Foods I saw these beautiful sunflowers and just had to get them. I’ve never been much of a flower person or plant person but I think that might change living in a house now. I put the sunflowers in the mason jar that I got at Goodwill (for only two dollars). I put them on our table outside and they look so pretty! These made me really happy…sometimes it’s just the little things!
