Southwest Salad

One of my favorite summer dishes is Southwest Salad. 
Heck, I make it year round, we just tend to eat salads more in the warmer months. 
For us, it is inspired by our love of restaurants like Chipotle and Qdoba.
{My husband goes for the ginormous burritos, I opt for a massive salad.}
So, this is a way for us to fill that desire, while staying home, and on budget.

A Weekend Getaway

Back in the beginning of May my husband called me from work with an idea -
Let's go somewhere. 
Tomorrow, and the rest of the weekend.
Or, maybe tonight. 

Rough June

June (and May) has been a rough month here for us.
After our weekend trip (upcoming post) we came home to deal with life, heartache and sadness.

We lost my husband's grandmother, Nanny.

My Great-Uncle George,

and my Great-Grandmother, Grams.

I also celebrated my birthday in that mix (Family nights the evening before, Funerals the day of, and loosing Grams the day after), and my own sadness as well. 

To bring ourselves up, we celebrated life,
my Sis-in-law's Graduation,

And Father's Day.

Daddy, Grand-daddy, Baby J, and Papa.

A good end to a rough month. 
Hopefully it will stay that way.
