Lulu's Love List

Nothing beats gazpacho in the summer.  It's so fresh, and a perfect pairing to anything on the grill.  This recipe is another from our dearly departed Mimi (my hubs grandmother who passed away in October).  We had it a lot when we would visit her in Florida.

  • 2 cans of tomatoes (I used diced)
  • 1 European cucumber, skinned
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 3 Tbs. of vinegar
  • 3 Tbs. of olive oil
  • 1 slice of bread, dipped in water and squeezed
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of sugar
Place all ingredients into a Cuisinart and blend until liquid.  Mimi used to strain hers, but I like it a little "chunky".  Chill and serve!

The beach.  This was taken from our short trip over the weekend.  I am so looking forward to our trip to New England next week.  Ella keeps talking about the "island" we're going to.... she is very excited!

If you read my blog, you know I'm always on the look out for great hair products to "thicken" my fine locks.  This Aveda product has worked wonderfully without adding any stickiness!

Awesome J.Crew flats.  I love them.  They are a great alternative to flip flops or sandals.  Because of the laser cut outs, your feet are fashionable and cool!

This is a wall in my family room.  The idea of this wall came to me when we moved into this house.  I wanted a sort of beach feel to this room.  Light, airy, relaxing.  You'll see the pictures, left-top, is an old picture of my husband and his brother (my hubs is the one with the dutch-boy haircut, hehehe) at the beach in Florida.  Right, is a picture of my sister and I at a beach on Cape Cod.  I only had these two pictures for a long time.  Until the nuggets were 3, they hated the beach, the sand, the ocean, everything.  So last year when they FINALLY loved the beach, I could complete my wall.  It's a wall to remind me of family, children, and the love my Savior has for all of us.

Follow along for a personal look into my crazy, twin love, fashion life!
