sneak peek

I've been a little M.I.A this week

....but for good reason

I was home in Crystal Lake this weekend and was able to catch some rays by the pool (with SPF 50, obvs.)

Made my black bean brownies for another bbq, and yet again, they were a huge hit.

We went for a sunset cruise along the lake

and then on Sunday my family and some cousins went to Arlington Race Track to take in some horse races.

I don't have time tonight to show you all the fun pictures I've been taking, but I promise to give you a big update later this week.

Life's been a wee bit crazay.

In fact, I just finished working for the day (It's 8pm....) but the business team that I am managing is being launched on Monday, so it's getting a little bat shit crazy at the office. 
Hope you're off to a great week!
