Wednesday's "What We Ate July 1-7, 2013"

I'll let my pictures do the majority of the talking from this week. As you know, it was the 4th of July & you should know by now that in our house, we take every holiday super seriously. We plan special foods & special activities with special friends. For the past couple of years, a group of 6-7 of our friends have gathered from Minneapolis, Chicago, & Duluth at our house to celebrate the 4th (you may have seen this post before). Two years ago, I was very pregnant with Ruby, so I recruited all of my friends to help with a little nesting (we made this too). Last year, it was literally 115 degrees all weekend, so we just mostly were sweaty & hunkered down in our basement. This year, we ate every meal out on our finished patio, lingered long into the night since we now have beautiful lights out there, & drank far too many (not really, mom) margaritas.  It was a blast.
Thursday's dinner: fish tacos (corn tortillas, lime-grilled tilapia, black beans, rice, queso, salsa verde & cilantro) with roasted corn guacamole & tortilla chips
This little beer treat was from our friends in Chicago. Hibiscus beer? Yessss.
Ruby may have experienced her first (& second) temporary tattoos this weekend. Here is Batu, the fox.
 She wanted the second one on her neck. Honest.
 Enjoying our patio on the 4th
Waving at all the people walking on the street, just before the fireworks
 Breakfast of champions on Friday. Corn tortillas, scrambled eggs, black beans, queso, roasted corn guac, & salsa verde with strawberries.
 We took a hike on the 5th because it was a gorgeous day. Here is Ruby gazing at two of her aunties.
 It's a sweaty job, but doesn't he look good?
We bought a new couch & love seat ($30. Vintage. Floral. Ethan Allen.) from a rummage sale on Saturday, so we said goodbye to this lovely couch. Even though it's gorgeous, it was starting to seriously fall apart. 
Saturday's dinner: fresh spring rolls (shredded cabbage, carrots, bean sprouts & cucumber) with peanut sauce & veggie fried rice

Jeron said to "pay it forward" so we gave it to one of our neighbors who didn't have a couch!

Haha, thanks! It's starting to wear off now, so it looks a little bit creepy...
