We’re still in search of our perfect little rental house… a nice fenced in backyard setup for entertaining, a good sized kitchen with lots of natural light, annnnnd if at all possible a mint colored claw foot tub! Haha I’m a sucker for vintage. In the meantime we’re enjoying the warm weather and sunsets from our current view!
The Fourth of July gets pretty chaotic where we live because of the Portland Blues Festival and the huge fireworks show they put on right from the water of the Williamette River. Since we could hear the bands loud and clear from our porch we opted for staying in this year. I made lemon and rosemary bacon wrapped chicken drumsticks (a twist on my recipe here), my Spicy Mango Habanero Coleslaw, and attempted to make deviled eggs..only to find out we were out of mayo! : ( We enjoyed one or two…or three Peppered Bacon Bloody Marys, relaxed, and watched the fireworks right from our place.
Earlier last week we had an amazing photo shoot with Lindsey Rickert Photography. Josh did some classic shots for his business cards and website (coming soon!) and I did a fun kitchen shoot for the blog and my cards as well. I used my Red Velvet Cupcakes and there may or may not have been some Sailor Jerry Rum involved.. ; ) I can’t wait to share the photos with you guys! Stay tuned!
