    Yay! Tonight’s barbeque was a huge success! And I love our friends!

    The evening started with conversation around the table outside on our back porch. While we chatted, we munched on chips and salsa. I also sipped on an Arnold Palmer. (After last night, there were no John Dalys for me!)

    On the dinner menu: grilled hamburgers, garlicky couscous, and salad.

    My plate: hamburger + Annie’s Goddess Dressing for dipping and salad with balsamic vinegar.

    Dessert (not surprisingly) was the highlight of the meal for me. I made S’mores on a Stick for our guests.

    And our guests brought cupcakes from Sweet!! I was so psyched! Thanks, Dave and Marie!

    I love summer… and barbeques… and cupcakes… and puppies… and good friends. I’m off to bed with a big smile on my face. Life is good.

    Good night, guys!

    What a great bbq! Those smores on a stick look incredible! I’m going to have to try making them! Those cupcakes look really good too. Cupcakes are my weakness 😉

    Looks like the perfect night! I love when time with good friends AND pups can be combined.

    Pupcakes?!?! What an interesting idea! I swear, the cupcake trend will NEVER get old to me.

    Oh man.. Sweet’s cupcakes are SO GOOD but their customer service is SO BAD! :( My sister used Sweet for her wedding reception and they messed up… and were unapologetic about it! wtf!!! I’ll stick with Kickass Cupcakes..

    Sounds (and looks) like the perfect way to spend a night with friends. I’m glad you enjoyed the BBQ!

    I like to write about what living the good life is for my hubby and I and I have to say, your day of food and friends is definitely a good life day in my book 😉

    The amount of frosting on those cupcakes makes me swoon.


    Alaina July 15, 2011 at 5:30 pm

    Haha, I love the white dog’s expression when it see’s the pupcakes! So excited!

    That looks like a perfect evening to me! :-)
