We had a very relaxing weekend together as a family and actually got caught up on some stuff here at the house. Feels good!

We also had some of our closest friends over on Saturday and had so much fun with them as always. I am so thankful for my friends that make up my Fayetteville Family. I seriously could not live life without them! They take such good care of us and are some of the most thoughtful people. Not to mention we have SOOO much fun together.

Sorry to be all cheesy, but after nights like Saturday night where we sat on our deck talking and laughing until midnight it is hard not to be gushy about them.

Enough gush.. Anyway.... Back to Yummy Monday! Saturday night we cooked out the ultimate summer meal; burgers, roasted veggies, cheese dip and I whipped up my very favorite Summer dessert....Strawberry Pie!! I always make this dessert at the beginning of the summer when I notice how yummy and beautiful the strawberries look.

So go to your grocery store this week, buy some of those juicy strawberries and whip this up yourself!  This strawberry pie will surely satisfy your summer cravings, I PROMISE!!
