Backyard Vacation

Sometimes, you just need to forget about your responsibilities and take a backyard vacation.

Last night was beautiful! I came home to 88 degree, sunny weather. It felt like vacation weather, so I went with that feeling. My husband and I moved some lawn chairs into the middle of our backyard, we turned on island music and layed out in the sun for a couple hours. It was so relaxing!

Best thing about backyard vacations? The dogs can come too!

After laying out in the sun, we decided that we wanted to enjoy an island-style dinner. We went to the store and picked up some pineapple. We grilled chicken, shrimp and pineapple kabobs with cayenne pepper and an orange marmalade. We had a side of summer squash, too. Summer on plate, I tell you; it was amazing! (Picture on instagram).

After dinner, we went out for ice cream. My calories for the day didn't even really suffer from this extra treat. And, just when I thought the night couldn't get any better, a rainbow shows up. It was really the perfect night.

Calories in: 1,521 - Calories out: 0 = 1,521 total calories for Tuesday.
