Memorial Day Mushies

Hey guys! How was your day?? Ours was bueno :)

We were both off work, so we did Insanity, cleaned the casa, walked the puppers and went to a BBQ at the commanders house.

I was patriotic in my sailor shorts :)

I managed to take a pic of my plate –I was in “sneaky blogger” mode- before I re-filled it a couple of times :D

plate

Fruit + veg + pasta salad and broccoli (x3ish)

For dessert, there was tres leches, mocha chocolate, poppy seed layer cake, cupcakes, cookies, and berries with cream. If you picture it in your brain, think of the most epic dessert table you’ve ever seen :) I had a small bite of the poppy seed cake and chocolate cake and a big bowl o’ berries.

‘Twas lovely :)

I’m off to pack up macaroons and read for a while, but before I go, a quick “thank you”:
