I would like to begin this post by thanking all of the men and women who served, are still severing and pay respects to those whom we've lost while serving our country. Rest In Peace SGM Turner.
Memorial Day is a fun holiday; long weekend, beach and pool days, cookouts, or whatever your traditions are. I'd like to share a quick recap of our family time this holiday.
Ice cream- what is a holiday without sweets? Our daughter let us know that she had to go potty over the holiday! Yay! So we went out for a quick holiday/potty training treat.
Crabs- have always been a summer time holiday tradition growing up in my family. Crab everythinggg in the summer. We did the same this Memorial Day. Nothing better than Maryland crabs. I also made a cajun boil with corn, potatoes, and beef sausage. OMG, so good. I put the recipe below!
Crab boil seasoning side dish
6 small frozen ears of corn
2 packs beef sausage
Small bag of red potatoes (about 12)
1-4oz pack of crab boil seasoning (I use Zatarain’s)
Combine all ingredients and crab boil seasoning into large pot. Add with water until all ingredients are covered. Boil for about 25 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain and serve with crabs!
Shopping- those sales!! I couldn't say no. I browed online for furniture but didn't really see much. Probably something that I should have done in store but completely ran out of time. We also shopped for our upcoming mini vacation. I scored so many cute toddler clothes from Target. I did a little shopping at the outlets for myself. J Crew factory still has an amazing sale going on. Here are just a few items that I found that are still on sale.
I purchased the cami below. Love the scalloped detail.
The caption says it all. It fit perfect everywhere else except the length. I’m about 5’3 for reference.
