Grilled Fruit and My Weekend Agenda


Halle freakin lujah Friday has arrived. Who am I kidding, everyday has been my Friday for weeks. But this is my last one before my big girl job starts. I shall live it to the fullest by cooking, being productive, dreaming up and implementing new projects. Let's be honest. Shall we? I will lay around in my sweats, attend happy hour and stuff my face. I love to keep it real. But I do have big plans for the weekend to get things done. Honest. We finally got a grill yesterday thanks to our parents. The boy's birthday is coming up (in August) and the parents decided to indulge us with a much needed grill. Of course, the wheels are now turning as to what I can concoct now that we have a grown up grill. For some reason grilled fruit is on the brain. I definitely need to make some of these. One thing is for sure, we will be grillin' this weekend. 
{Grilled Peaches with Cinnamon Cream}
Has anyone else seen this recipe floating around Pinterest? I am thinking it needs to make an appearance into my cooking repertoire once I start cooking again. I am thinking of substituting the rice for quinoa and maybe adding a little homemade southwest spicy sauce. 
In other news, I scored this amazeballs rug from Richmond Craigslist for the boy's office that I cannot wait to get into place. Did I mention it was amazeballs and that it was also $20?
I have a project in the works that involves the following, but its not what you would think. You'll be shocked!

I am ecstatic to find a home for my new Lindsay Cowles prints! Now, they just need the perfect frame! Seen here would be "Spring Melody" and "Southern Moonlight". Love and love. 

What are you loves up to this long holiday weekend? Anything good?
