Peace out, Summer.

Happy Labor Day!
I have to say, I have never been more ready for a summer to be over than I am for this summer. Memphis had the 2nd hottest summer on record and I am OVER it.
Luckily, this weekend has been dream weather so far and it was perfect or our small BBQ with friends last night. Now, in Memphis, when we have BBQ, we have BBQ and that means pulled pork, not hamburgers. When we have hamburgers, that is called "grilling out."
We picked this up from the wonderful Germantown Commissary, which is close to our house and it was so yum.
I have been obsessed with sunflowers lately and I found these adorable gingham plates at Target last week, so I went with that theme.
I found a bunch of cute gingham ribbon on clearance...wooo!  And yes, I wrap plastic serving ware even when our friends come over. I have problems.
I never let a bit go to waste. PS-I found those plastic wine glasses at Kroger for $1.99 each. See, I hate washing wine glasses and you can put these in the dishwasher!
All the BBQ fixings.
It's not BBQ without the sausage and cheese!
I found this little crock at Tuesday Morning a few weeks ago and I am already using it all the time. It has a hot plate, OR, it has a stand for a candle to go underneath it. It's perfect for keeping dips hot without having to hide a cord! I hate cords.
We had a great night with friends and there is nothing like friends, yummy food, laughing, and perfect weather!
Hope you're having a great weekend!!


  1. I love this tablescape. I totally wish I was there. Sweet eats!

  2. Very nice! Wow that was one HOT summer huh! :) Well, I'm afraid of our winter...we had TWO blizzards with more than 2ft of snow each time last year..... :)
