3 Random Things

Here are 3 things that are exciting or strange and that are so much so that they have earned a place in yet another memorable 3 Random Things post.

1. The wild fires are going crazy on pretty much on all sides of us so the weather report is always saying hot and smokey. But still a lovely scene to wake up to.

I’ll have to do a post about pancakes one day…

2. I LOVE PANCAKES! These are S’mores pancakes. I just added s’more ingredients to the pancake batter.

how cute?

3. This is our only tomato from our ten bushes… only red tomato…

Date #3

It was Peter’s turn.  (We each plan one expensive and one inexpensive date each month.)

IT was amazing! We were going to hike up, but we were running late and out of sunlight so we drove to the top. I was glad we did since as soon as we got out of the car we heard many coyotes!!

Then we had some chicken noodle soup and watched the lovely skyline. Although the smoke did prevent us from seeing as far as usual.

I love date night. I love Peter.


Bike Ride!

This would be a super cute date idea, but I went with my sis in law, and my mother in law. IT was such a blast! We rode to the near by town and made sure to get some Starbucks :).

One of our bikes did not even make it 50 yards. the chain or something… went all crazy.


1- check and double check your BIKES… or have someone more capable check it… (i failed at this!)

2 – BRING SUNGLASSES… that was the one thing I really wished I brought

3 – Bring water, snacks, first aid kit… Stuff just in case 🙂
