Hey hey! How are you? How was the weekend?
Summer time is formally HERE. Bless it. I really feel like I’ve just a little area to breathe with out the college scramble (homework and the entire driving takes up a variety of the day), so I’m fairly pumped abut it.
Friday was their final day, so we had a pool celebration luau right here on the home for the ladies and a few of their finest buddies. The aftermath was wonderful – our yard appeared like Vegas. Feathers, pineapples, sparkles, and empty cups in every single place haha.
I bought the cutest picnic setup from Depraved Picnic (extremely, extremely advocate them if you happen to’re in Tucson).
The centerpieces had been pineapples sporting sun shades and this garland from Etsy.
We arrange this little Photograph Sales space with this background, a balloon arch, and a few props I discovered at Greenback Tree and Amazon (funky sun shades, boas, leis, flower headbands, and so forth.):
The meals unfold!! We had chips, do-it-yourself salsa, crackers, artichoke dip, pizza, lemon-roasted rooster (I used rooster tenders), Mediterranean chopped salad, brownies, cookies, banana pudding cups, and tequila sangria for the adults. We crammed our outdoors coolers with juice pouches, glowing waters, and waters.
My buddy Ana additionally introduced my latest fave celebration snack: japones peanuts, tamarindo, and chamoy. You add all of it to a cup and it’s all the things you may want for: crunchy, candy, spicy.
Our babysitter can be an authorized lifeguard, so I requested if we might rent her for the afternoon to look at the pool. We’ll completely be having a lifeguard right here throughout greater summer time events – SO value it the additional peace of thoughts.
The children swam their little hearts out, took pics within the photograph sales space, snacked, and we had a go to from the Kona Ice shaved ice truck. They had been parked in entrance of our home for an hour, and it was a HIT! Every child was handed their cup of shaved ice and so they might customise their flavors from the dispensers on the facet of the truck.
Saturday, the ladies swam for hours, I bought my nails completed, and tried an enormous baking venture. I lastly made conchas! After having fun with them for my whole life, this was my first time making them on my own. Should you’re not acquainted, conchas are an egg bread with a tender, sugary topping. They’re a DREAM. In addition they take about 5 hours to make lol.
Who is aware of after I’ll do that once more, however I’ve to inform ya, a concha, heat out of the oven…. effectively, there’s nothing prefer it. The fam came to visit to assist us check them out, and we had celebration leftovers, and sangria by the pool.
