Bad Blogger...I apologize!

Beginning of our garden.
Fire pit!
It's been far too long since I last posted, I apologize! Life has taken me by storm and it's a miracle I haven't forgotten my name at this point! Quick recap: the last couple of weekends it has been Brent and my personal mission to finish decorating the patio in our backyard.  We now have a new BBQ, Fire pit, tiki torches, and patio furniture (and of course decorative candles/vases etc). Also, we planted our garden and planted a summer song bird flower seed mix, I'm crossing my fingers everything blooms/grows healthily and properly! 

Grilled steak, asparagus, caprese salad!

This is one of the first dinners we enjoyed on the new BBQ!  We also box a smoke box and hickory chips....the steaks were incredible with the smokey hickory flavor, I highly recommend the smoke boxes, I had no idea it would add so much flavor!

The new set.
And finally, the patio set! Getting this home was ridiculous.  Brent and I were ambitious and thought we could fit it in his car......hahahahaha. It is truly laughable. Once we started trying to fit each piece it became a challenge. Needless to say, it made its way home, but he and I literally had to shimmy in the car and we looked like cartoon characters driving home.  Not one of our brightest moments, but definitely one for the memory books, it was hilarious! (after the fact! haha).
