Spicy Skewered Shrimp & WIW

Here's what I wore yesterday, the first day of school.  
Dress and Sweater:  Loft  //  Sandals: Target
I took this picture on the deck for one reason:  The railing was the right height to prop the camera on.  That deck is 15 ft. off the ground.  I see a fallen camera in my future if I keep this up.
This is the wrinkly dress shot taken after I got home.  I went with flats yesterday simply because you do a lot of hustling on the first day.  Learned that the hard way.

Despite looking like a grown-up (?), I was still greeted with, "You're the teacher?" and "How old are you?" and "You look too nice".  While I can't change the fact that I am the teacher nor change my age, I can guarantee you that I am not, in fact, "too nice".
And here's a tasty shrimp recipe.  
Tell me, is there nothing better than grilled shrimp??  Yum.

I wish I had a better picture of these shrimp.  My husband made them during R&R (I'm not clever enough to work the charcoal grill).  I sort of inhaled them and didn't have chance to model my food precariously on the windowsill first.  I had just come back from the gym and was all hungry and stuff...
While he made the shrimp, I made the bruschetta.

You see, I really enjoyed the two skewers of shrimp I ate, but Scott didn't like them.  He was just being picky, I think.

Spicy Skewered Shrimp.

Happy weekend!
