Saturday – House Party Edition

Fancy Feast

Have you heard of yet? It’s pretty cool. Basically, different companies sponsor YOU to throw a houseparty using some of their products (for free!) You apply online through the website to host a party that sounds interesting to you. If accepted, House Party will send you some free related items and ideas for games and such to have at your party. It’s pretty neat!

Cookout Season: Saturday Edition


What you see here is the view from my parents’ back porch here in Northeast Tennessee.  I spent 24 summers enjoying this back yard, taking in the brilliant blue sky and the shade from the beautiful maple trees over the back porch.  In high school, my friends would come over for a game of backyard volleyball, followed by some marshmallow roasting in my dad’s fire pit.  Through college and to the present day, we have a cookout here for just about every occasion.  We are cookout fanatics.
