Fun Summer Stuff

What a great afternoon! ๐Ÿ˜Ž I enjoyed a whole bunch of funย summer stuff. It felt like such a treat playing outside on a Monday afternoon when I should have been inside getting ahead on my work. Oh, well. You only live once, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Murphy had an absolute blast on his walk this afternoon. Let’s just say that he definitely enjoyed his own fun summer stuff! ๐Ÿ˜€


Pug + high temps = sprinkler fun!!! :mrgreen:


In the video, you can hear Mal and me cracking up in the background. Murphy looked ridiculous rolling around and trying to cool himself off! So funny! ๐Ÿ˜†


For dinner, Dave and Marie invited us over to their house to eat some of the “grillables” leftover from yesterday’sย Independence Day Beer Pentathlon. Of course, Mal and I enthusiastically accepted their invitation! Another night of grilling with friends?!? Sign me up! I love fun summer stuff! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

When we arrived, Marie had prepared a plate of red grapes, Gouda cheese, and crackers. I munched on a little bit of everything.


A little while later, the guys fired-up the grill!ย I went with a Coleman Organic Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage on a bun and big serving of salad on the side.


I topped my sausage with spicy mustard and Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce.


I also used a little bit of Sweet Baby Ray’s for dipping my salad into. That stuff is GOOD!


For dessert, I enjoyed a small portion of cold Arborio Rice Pudding that Marie made the other day. It was to die for!! I’m actually making a batch tonight for tomorrow’s breakfast, so I will share the recipe then.


It’s Sunday Movie Night! Good night, blog friends!


  1. I’m excited for the rice pudding recipe. We did however find a great low-fat pudding a few weeks ago, loving it.

    That sausage sounds delicious, seriously. I need to find some quality chicken sausages over here.

  2. Oo can’t wait to hear that recipe, sounds delicious! Glad you enjoyed a nice day- it was technically a holiday so its okay you didn’t work all day haha

  3. Ahhhh! I just spent the last half hour trying to find a sweet rice pudding recipe to make!! Oh, I wish you’d post your recipe now… can’t believe I have to wait another whole daaaaaaay! Oh noes!

  4. Murphy is amazing ๐Ÿ˜€

    I can’t wait for that recipe!!! I also BBQ foods – fresh off the grill?? Sign me UP! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Oh my, that video of Murphy is SO funny. I seriously think that if everyone owned a pug the world would be a happier place. How can you not smile at that face? ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Hahaha I love Murph! He’s awesome ๐Ÿ˜€ Grilled dinner is always awesome. You sound like you’re always having so much fun! ๐Ÿ™‚
