Joe and I had a great date night on Friday with his brother David and his girlfriend Cortney. We went to Bonterra for dinner and had the Chef's tasting menu. Five courses paired with wine for each course. It was absolutely delicious!! A great time!!

We finally have gotten around to painting the living room. As you may remember we have needed to do this since January and with the help of some dear friend (the Haney's) we got it done this weekend. It's a real change for us because we have always had a dark color in the space the 9 years we have lived here. We started with a chocolate brown and then changed to Orange. It's definitely taking me some warming up to the lighter option but I am coming around. It feels clean and crisp which is a great way to enter the house! The past two times we have painted we have used Behr's new Premium Plus Ultra which is a paint plus primer. It's a little more expensive but so worth it!! We painted over the orange with the light yellow with only 2 coats! And here are the results... (drum roll please :-)
The color choice - Ground Ginger
Well the garden's a growing! Tomatoes are getting some height on them and the peppers, zucchini and squash seem to be doing well. The poor basil and cilantro are getting eaten by something. We are going to make an organic bug spray and I will report on that soon.
Our first tomato has appeared as well!!
Today we headed out to the second week of Pops in the Park. I love going to hear the Charlotte Symphony and eat yummy food and be outside! They play every Sunday night in June and we try to go to all of them if possible. This week we did some seared Tuna and Filet... BBQ mini sandwiches, smoked salmon, deviled eggs, cocktail shrimp and other goodies. And of course it's not ALL about the food - it's always a good time to hang with friends as well!!
We even had yummy birthday cake too!!

This is a picture from the mission trip I went on in April to Honduras. These girls are from the New Life Children's Home. Meilan is in the pink and Karin is in the blue. Meilan and I really bonded and she seems to be heavy on my heart all the time! I just sent her a package down with some goodies. I can't wait to see her again!!
