Texas Pool Party

I LOVE to have people over! And my current place is a pretty decent party spot.

Pool Party

Last week Alex, Allison, and I did something we hadn’t ever done before. We actually used the grill and patio at the pool.

After an hour of slacklining in the park, which was crazy crazy hot, we hit the pool for a swim. As nice as it was to just chill by the pool, hunger destroyed all chance of simple relaxation. We hopped in Allison’s jeep in search of sustenance. As I climb to the back of the jeep, stepping over a few provisions on the floor Allison chimes, “Oh be careful, by the way….there’s ice skates back there somewhere!” I was more concerned with not flashing anyone, climbing around in a swim suit cover-up!

In classic Texas fashion, we didn’t bother deciding between proteins, we just grabbed chicken and steak. Food shopping with friends is a great time! It’s a great way to make the mundane fun!

We followed up our meat coarse with potato wedges and angel food cake, so freaking good! Allison and I just sat around while Alex did all the work. That’s the key. Always take the supervisory role.

And of course all of this delicious food was washed down with a beer or two. And I found a flower that just about killed me. I spent about 20 minutes staring this flower down.

Next time it’s hamburgers and hot dogs!
