07.31.16 Last Weekend of the Month

I cannot believe this is the last day of July!!  It feels like the 4th of July was just yesterday.  I had a wonderful weekend.  Friday night John and I just went to a quick dinner at Dunwelz.  Then we came home and chilled out.  we read and then we just watched TV.  Yesterday I had a pedicure.  It was such a wonderful pedicure!  I loved my "me" time!  Then John and I had a quick lunch and took a drive.  We ended up going to Barnes and Noble.  My Nook Color's charging cable doesn't work anymore.  They told me they thought Barnes and Noble was giving cables away for free because they were defective.  They placed an order for one for me.  I got an email today saying they can't fill my order!!  REALLY Barnes and Noble are you kidding me!  I had just ordered 3 books from the class-action suit a few weeks ago.  I was 7/8ths of the way through the book when the charger broke!  I have been reading these books on my phone and it just isn't the same!  I'm going to look on amazon to see if I can buy a charger cable. 

Last night John, Jenny and I went to Upstream for dinner.  This was a belated birthday celebration! 
It is restaurant week.  Well restaurant week is over tonight.  So they had a menu for restaurant week that was to die for!!  I opted for the lobster dinner!

This lobster was soooooo good!!  Before the lobster came I had a Tega Cay Bib Lettuce Salad.  There were tangerines and goat cheese on bib lettuce.  It was fabulous!!  The dinner ended with a wonderful dessert.  I had the blueberry pear crumble with almond gelato.  It was all out of this world!!

Saturday during the day I saw some of the gladiolus were blooming in the front garden.  I also had some limelight hydrangea still blooming.  I thought they would look wonderful together in my grandmother's vase.  I love using the vase my grandmother gave me before she died.  I put flowers in it throughout the summer because every week I used to take my grandmother flowers and she  would put them in this vase.  Lovely memories!

Today I slept in and then cooked a big breakfast for John and I.  I went grocery shopping and decided that I needed to make eggplant parmesan!  So I did!!  It was wonderful!  I hadn't made this in such a long time.  I also made beer bread to go with it.  What a wonderful dinner!

So this was really a wonderful weekend!  It was still so hot here, but atleast I found things to do inside to stay cool!!  I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend too!!

Enjoy your week :)!!

My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
