It's such a gorgeous Thursday evening here in central Minnesota! We spent some time at the pool today with friends and I can't wait to relax and watch some Hulu after this post! We've also been spending lot of time exploring our neighborhood these last few weeks! My daughter and I walk and ride bike almost every day and we are so fortunate to have the pool and park less than 4 blocks away! It makes summertime extra fun when there is so much to do, so close by.

An easy hot sandwich that will satisfy any mushroom lover! Great for lunch or quick dinner!




I hope y'all had a fantastic weekend!! We went to dinner at Mongo's Grill with my Dad for Father's day yesterday. Have you ever been to a Mongolian grill before?? If you haven't, promise me you'll try one! I just love the selection of fresh veggies, seafood and sauces to add! You pile everything in your bowl, bring it to the grill and watch them cook it right in front of you! So fun, delicious and healthy! It was so nice spending some extra time with my Dad!

Living in Minnesota and having short summers, we try to fit in as much fun as possible every summer! One of our favorite things to do is sit around a fire pit with family and friends! We spent a Tuesday evening at my brother's house recently and had a blast! The kids swam in the pool for hours and us adults sat around the fire pit, toasted marshmallows and made some amazing 10 Minute Fruity S'mores!
