  1. I love that you made pickles! How cute 🙂

    I’m a new follower from Top Baby Blogs, by the way!

  2. um, nesting much? hahaha. everything looks so yummy! you should share your pickles recipe!

    • hahaha. probably! the pickle recipe is super duper easy.

      1 cucumber sliced thinly
      1/2 red onion sliced thinly
      1 cup of apple cider vinegar
      1 cup of water
      1/2 cup of sugar

      whisk the vinegar, water and sugar together until all the sugar dissolves. pour over the cucumbers and onions, refrigerate overnight. they will keep at least a week in the fridge, but they never last that long at our place!

  3. Yummy! Two of MY favorite things to make and eat!
    I live the stars!!!!! So creative.

    We spent the 4th with Kevin’s parents- we went for a gondala ride up the mountain at Stowe and saw fireworks at Smuggs. The ski resorts are so fun even in the warm weather!

    Miss you!

    • Hahaha. Thanks! I got a little bit Martha Stewart that day. The pie looked so yummy. I had the tiniest piece of it so it wouldn’t upset my gallbladder.

      Your fourth sounds amazing. I’m sure Vermont is beautiful all year round. I miss you, too! We both do.

  4. I just made the pickles i hope they came out ok =)
