Monthly Favourites everyone!  May passed by so fast, didn’t it?   I’m wondering where the heck spring is.  Just the other day, I heard someone on a local radio station call our season ‘sprinter’ cause our spring is like winter. Ha! Funny, but sad.  Aside from that, the month has been great!  We got a new 50,000 BTU propane fire pit that looks gorgeous and I’m dying to try it out.  I’m dreaming about hubby and I sitting on the back deck with that baby going on a random Friday or Saturday night, bbq, maybe some music on the go.  Picking up what I’m throwing down, lol?  I know you are.  Anyway, onto the good stuff (there’s a lot this month)–> Continue reading
