MIA: What I've Been Up To

It's been a long week.
Or should I say loooooooooooooong.

What have I been doing?

You may know if you've been following along on instagram (sorry for the repeats if you are)

 Watching Eric work...

 While I drink wine:)

Just kidding. I've been working too!

It's not complete, but I couldn't wait to put up the lights!

 Here, you can see the southern cross pattern. 
The openings will have vertical 2x2's. The area to the right will be a wall with a built in bench and planter boxes. When it's complete and painted and stained, I'll share the details and dimensions. I can't wait to finish it...and then use it for 2 months out of the year. Here is my shopping list!

After working for days, I think Eric and Riggs had had enough:)

Tonight we're off to Lowe's to pick up a few more things (and take back some stuff we didn't use)

I'm thinking about picking up some herbs and small terracotta pots to age.
Have you tried this?

Thirtsy Thursday & An Appetizer

These wonton cups are SO delish...I sometimes even make them for dinner. If you like it spicy, add some sirachaaaaaa.

And how simple are those margaritas? I've made them a million times with many different sorbets. Blood Orange is currently my favorite but raspberry, mango and lemon are delish too.

Happy Thursday! I'll be back tomorrow with some birthday faves!

BLT Chopped Salad with Avocado Dressing

Y'all, this recipe is SO good!

Eric didn't want a SALAD for dinner- I guess it's not manly enough. 
I think this one made him change his mind.

It's SO easy and oh so good! I tor the basil and added it to the salad...Eric isn't a big basil fan but I love it! I Added more to mine:)

To caramelize the corn, place in nonstick skillet on medium. 
Don't touch-let it be!

The creamy avocado dressing is delish too-I think I may 
keep some in the fridge all the time!
