Food blogger over here.

I had a really great-ish weekend. Summer like weather finally showed up so I wore some summer dresses and hosted a little BBQ with Alex with some friends too. Yummy burgers on the grill, cards against humanity, just really nice.

I also made lots of paleo friendly food, and didn't tell anyone *hehehe*

Lettece wrapped burgers, lots of veggies and Chocolate chip cook dough brownie for dessert. Oh yes, it was that good. 

I do admit I'm not the best baker..yet. These fell apart as soon as a finger touched them which made me so annoyed. Just gotta make them again right?!
