Happy 4th of July

I hope everyone had a safe but fun day with their loved ones.
I worked as it was my holiday to work this year.
After work though, the fiancé and I went and had a BBQ at my parents house and it was delicious!
My mom made the typical skirt steak, sausage, and she mixed it up this year by grilling up LAMB chops (yummy my favorite), a giant bowl of salad, vegetables on the side were grilled corn on the cobb, butternut squash and broccoli.
 I know most other Americans the traditional BBQ is hot dogs and hamburgers, pasta salad, potato salad, coleslaw but we like to be a little different.

What are some of your favorite BBQ foods or your version of traditional BBQ foods?

On June 18th, 2016 my loving amazing boyfriend asked me to be his wife!
I couldn't be more excited to spend the rest of my life with my fiancé, he is truly wonderful and thoughtful.
He surprised me and took me on a wine & dine train up the Hudson River.
I gave him a hard time all morning too because I didn't know where we were going and he wasn't giving me any sort of details, I'm not one to be surprised. In fact no one has ever tried to surprise me before.
He also snuck and got my dad's permission without me even knowing, bonus points for the old school tradition of asking my dad!
He proposed after the dessert, it was the best day ever.
Below are some pictures from the day we got engaged:
When we got back to Penn Station that night, I didn't want the night to end.
So we went to a restaurant called Dallas BBQ in Manhattan and got drinks to celebrate:

We also decided we didn't want to wait a year to get married, we want to start a family and so we decided to set the date for this coming November 2016.
I can't wait to start the next chapter of my life, with the love of my life :)
