pool party! + weekend things
Hey hey! How are you? How was the weekend?
Summer is formally HERE. Bless it. I really feel like I’ve somewhat house to breathe with out the varsity scramble (homework and all the driving takes up a number of the day), so I’m fairly pumped abut it.
Friday was their final day, so we had a pool get together luau right here on the home for the ladies and a few of their greatest mates. The aftermath was wonderful – our yard appeared like Vegas. Feathers, pineapples, sparkles, and empty cups in every single place haha.
I acquired the cutest picnic setup from Wicked Picnic (extremely, extremely advocate them when you’re in Tucson).
The centerpieces had been pineapples sporting sun shades and this garland from Etsy.
We arrange this little Photo Booth with this background, a balloon arch, and a few props I discovered at Dollar Tree and Amazon (funky sun shades, boas, leis, flower headbands, and so forth.):
The meals unfold!! We had chips, do-it-yourself salsa, crackers, artichoke dip, pizza, lemon-roasted chicken (I used rooster tenders), Mediterranean chopped salad, brownies, cookies, banana pudding cups, and tequila sangria for the adults. We stuffed our outdoors coolers with juice pouches, glowing waters, and waters.
My good friend Ana additionally introduced my latest fave get together snack: japones peanuts, tamarindo, and chamoy. You add all of it to a cup and it’s all the pieces you would want for: crunchy, candy, spicy.
Our babysitter can also be a licensed lifeguard, so I requested if we may rent her for the afternoon to look at the pool. We will completely be having a lifeguard right here throughout larger summer season events – SO price it the additional peace of thoughts.
The youngsters swam their little hearts out, took pics within the photograph sales space, snacked, and we had a go to from the Kona Ice shaved ice truck. They had been parked in entrance of our home for an hour, and it was a HIT! Each child was handed their cup of shaved ice and so they may customise their flavors from the dispensers on the facet of the truck.
Saturday, the ladies swam for hours, I acquired my nails carried out, and tried an enormous baking venture. I lastly made conchas! After having fun with them for my whole life, this was my first time making them on my own. If you’re not acquainted, conchas are an egg bread with a delicate, sugary topping. They’re a DREAM. They additionally take about 5 hours to make lol.
Who is aware of once I’ll do that once more, however I’ve to inform ya, a concha, heat out of the oven…. nicely, there’s nothing prefer it. The fam came visiting to assist us check them out, and we had get together leftovers, and sangria by the pool.
