TGIF! Shout Outs
Friday, August 21st, 2015

What’s shakin’ bacon? Sassy here with another edition of Friday Shout Outs…or should I say Fri-YAY! Here’s to another Friday, hope your weekend is wonderful just like you!

I just got back from vacation with my family on Bald Head Island (the most wonderful place in the world) and at the same time we are moving into our new house all the while getting a new phone. So, needless to say I am a bit ALL over the place right now just trying to make sure I know where I am sleeping and eating each day. Don’t get me wrong this is all very exciting but between trying to find people’s numbers and wondering where my pots and pans are it can be quite confusing and disorienting. We will be all moved in soon and I cannot wait to plant my roots in this town 🙂

Vacation you ask? It was wonderful. I soaked up all the sun I could while stealing hugs and laughs with my 4 year old nephew, 2 year old niece and
brand new 1 month old nephew…oh yea and my hubby, mom, dad, brother (older) and sister-in-law….and a surprise visit from my brother-in-law oh and our 15 year old Wheaten Terrier Amber. Family time is the best time and living so far away from everyone makes me cherish every second we had. We played in the sand, boogie boarded, climbed a lighthouse, shared some homemade ice cream and chilled by a bonfire on the beach. It’s important to take breaks in life, take some deep breaths and unwind. It’s so easy to power through but this was a much needed vacation and I’m ready to go back already. Alright, besides my family, here are a few of my favorite things for this week’s Friday Shout Outs!

Roasted Garlic Broccoli

Roasted Garlic Broccoli

When I was a kid I was convinced that I HATED broccoli. Now I am not a fan of that H word but I think that it was EXACTLY how I felt. I used to ask my parents for a dog so that it would eat the broccoli under the table without my mom knowing 🙂 Funny story, we got a dog when I was 12 and she also HATED broccoli…so I had to suck it up and eat it…either that or my mom would make peas…and that my friends was worse.
