It's been a great week, but I've been ready for the beach the entire week!
This has been the first week for me that I feel like it's just been unbearably HOT. Homemade popsicles are still high on the list. I got some new molds in this week that I can't wait to try when we get back from the beach!
Last weekend, Paul and I decided to have an adventure to check out a place I had never been before, but Paul had been many times growing up - Jerry's- a catfish house on 49 that's shaped like an igloo. I just had to see what he was talking about.
Surprisingly, it's HUGE on the inside and it had the best catfish I've ever eaten. Truth be told, we're going back again tonight! I worked an admissions event at work today and they had catfish for lunch. I told Paul I had to have catfish for dinner. It's hard to photograph and not eat it!
Salmon has been on our plates this week. There's nothing better than a good, grilled piece of salmon (with brown rice and extra thin green beans).
There's also been a big theme of tomatoes, Chilton County peaches, and blueberries this week, too. Peaches are just now getting good, so I can't wait to eat them while we're at the beach.
We got to do some celebrating this week because we found the deal of the century on... wait for it... a washer and dryer. I know, you're all so excited as we are. Funny enough, I get emails about deals from Home Depot and saw an LG front loading washer and dryer for $400 less than usual (we had been ready to pay full price for them). Since we knew that they had them at Home Depot, we decided to go see what Lowe's had competition-wise. We found the exact same set at the same discounted price plus free delivery and a $50 gift card. SOLD.
We celebrated with snow cones.
We got them this week and lucky for us, the delivery men even helped us move the old washer and dryer to another part of the garage (they came with the house, but are getting rusty - the reason we bought our own in the first place).
It cracks me up that instead of a start button, there's a play button. Instead of a buzzer, it plays a song at the end. You'd have thought we bought an iPod. These machines are very high efficiency and we find ourselves just watching them work.
Hope you guys are having a great week and see (some of you) at the beach!
