Time for a little croquet

Last weekend Blake and his girlfriend Whitney were in town. On Sunday they came over and spent some time with us. We ate dinner, watched a movie, watched some episodes of The Office, played croquet and a played a game. Here's some pictures highlighting some of our fun. Blake is such a riot. He had never played croquet before but was quite good at it. Whitney and I were way behind and Stanford swept in and won the game. We both loved spending time with Blake and Whitney. You guys are welcome back anytime, especially for a little croquet!

side note: do you notice the gray cat in some of the pictures? This cat loves to hang out right outside our front door and if it could would make itself comfortable in our home. When we started to play croquet it wouldn't leave us alone. Blake and I were very much opposed to the cat and tried to send it on its way several times. Stanford and Whitney had much for compassion for it. Can you tell I'm not a cat person. Sorry Stanford.


  1. I love Croquet! It brings back so many fond childhood memories...
    so Blake has a woman??? Good job! She is a lucky girl :)

  2. Awesome! You are the best hosts EVER. You do know that, right? I love visiting you and love that you have a croquet set to play with. . . I can't wait to play!

  3. What a fun time! I love that you guys are all about croquet. It is such a great game. Glad you got to spend some time with Blake and Whitney with his busy schedule. Very fun. :)

  4. Looks like fun! Sara, I can sympathize with you about the cat. When we lived in Draper we had a cat adopt us. It was always on our doorstep and would run into the house and hide whenever it got the chance. It drove me crazy. So I'm not really a cat person either. :)

  5. SO FUN!!! Looks like you guys had lots of fun! I love that Blake and Whitney came and spent so much time with you too. Your croquet set does look very fun. Next time we come we will have to do it!

  6. i'm totally not a cat person either! guys just have croquet at your house? because if you do, you are now the coolest people i know.

  7. Hi Ms. Sara! We updated our blog link: Miss you lady!

  8. OK, well I will just give you the recipe on here. I'm not sure I have your real email address. Anyway, here it is and it really is delicious!

    Chicken Cashew Salad

    4 chicken breasts cooked and shredded
    1 c. mayo
    1/2 c. chopped green onion
    1 tsp. tarragon (a little less if using dried)
    1/2 c. chopped or crushed cashews
    several croissants

    Super easy to throw together and tastes awesome on a hot summer day. Also, I usually freeze half and save it for a really non-cooking day. Feel free to add more mayo, sometimes it seems a little dry.
