Can you believe we haven't had one backyard BBQ at home this year? We haven't even used our grill. Shame on us!. We have however enjoyed a lot of grilling out at the lake almost every weekend so I guess you could say that counts. We just prefer to have the scenery of mountains and water in while we BBQ. When I think of a backyard BBQ I think "southern summer" so it seemed only fitting to wear a casual dress and sandals. And of course a jean jacket for when the sun goes down and the air gets chilly and the smores come out. Am I right? I also really love this bag because it's easy and convenient for me to carry around Maddox's necessities plus my car keys, phone and lipstick when I don't feel like hauling his entire diaper bag.
As far as the BBQing is concerned, my favorite things to throw on the grill are these veggie skewers and salmon on a wood plank. Plus smores for dessert because nothing says Summer backyard BBQ fun like good ole' fashion smores over an open flame.

What's your favorite BBQ recipe? It's not too late for me to try it!
Isn't Jana just drop dead gorgeous? Every time she wears coral lipstick I mention how pretty it is on her, but man, throw on an entire coral dress and her beauty hits me like a train! See her post for full outfit details.
Last week Tilden killed it with her flowly ensemble and metallic sandals. I know these are in style right now and they aren't necessarily my thing, but if I did wear them this is exactly the style I would go for. Love it!

Next week, we are romping around! Rompers are such a fun trend that came back from the 60's. I can't wait to see all the different styles!
