Impromptu Memorial Day Dinner

Hope you all had a lovely Memorial Day weekend! Mike and I were traveling for most of the weekend but we got back to our apartment Sunday night so we had all of Monday to unwind. Spur of the moment we decided to borrow one of the charcoal grills from our apartment complex and grill some steaks. Amazingly we had everything we needed in our freezer and pantry! I love when dinners come together without a run to the grocery store!

Please excuse the table setting. Yes... we ate on our coffee table in front of the tv!

The menu:
Grilled Filet Mignon (bought at Wegman's when they were on sale and stored in our freezer)
Baked Potatoes & Roasted Garlic (both found in our pantry)
Steamed Veggies (originally frozen)
Semi-Dry Riesling (had been in our fridge for a special occasion)

And of course the night wouldn't be complete without some roasted marshmallows!

Escape with the Pottery Barn Catalog

You know when the stylists at Pottery Barn are doing a good job when you spend an hour thumbing through their catalog and imagining yourself within the pages. These two images really got to me- the spaces are just so classic and clean.

This picture just makes me say "Ahhh." A beach house with a cozy little alcove... what could be more perfect?! I love that you can pull the drapes closed for some privacy and take a sun-filled cat nap. Or imagine the great conversations to be had with a best friend while gazing out at the ocean. Wonderful.

Can you say summertime sleepovers? Oh what I would give to be able to sleep under the stars breathing in that rich, heady nighttime air in an actual bed, of course.
