What I Wore Wednesday!

Welcome to What I Wore Wednesday {Week 12: Picnicking with the Lee}

Well as you read this I will be flying across the country en route to the pacific Northwest with my sister and 2 baby nephews. We are taking a 2 week vacation home to WA to visit family, leaving our husbands home to work (boo hoo). I have so been looking forward to this trip. and don't you worry, I'll take lots of photos to show you upon my return. Don't forget to stop by the blog while I'm gone. I have a whole list of blog posts lined up for the next 2 weeks.

It worked out perfectly that Monday was a holiday. Our weekends are normally pretty busy, and this allowed for an 'us day' before the trip, which was much needed. This is the first time we'll be separated since we've been married. And I have to be honest, the closer it got to the trip, the longer 2 weeks sounded. I hope we make it! We are both a little nervous...

We stayed busy over the long weekend planting our little herb and flower garden. We are prepping two, old, 50's metal chairs to paint as well, but they didn't get finished. It's been pretty hot the past week, so we took a late 8pm picnic in the park around the corner from our house on Memorial Day evening...

This week I'm featuring my handsome husband as well. Hope you enjoy!

We ate a simple sandwich that was oh so tasty. French baguette, fresh mozzarella slices, tomato slices, fresh basil leaves, toped with olive oil, balsamic glaze, and salt + pepper to taste. Then we just laid on the blanket, talked, and enjoyed the fireflies on our walk home.
