“If you don’t like the weather in Texas, wait five minutes and it will change.” I’ve heard this saying occasionally throughout my years living in Dallas, but it never rang truer than this last month. We’ve been bombarded with rain and storms for the past few weeks, but every so often, we’ll get a patch of nice weather to remind us that it’s summertime.
I finally woke up one day to a sunny forecast. Not knowing when we’d have a break from the rain again, I decided to throw together an impromptu backyard BBQ with friends and family to kick-start the summer season and enjoy the sunshine. Even with little time to prepare, the evening was a smashing success thanks to the warm weather, cool Bud Light Lime®, and amazing company!
After a long day of work, I wasn’t in the mood to prepare a huge feast. I kept things simple with burgers, hot dogs, chips and salsa. For a personal touch, I made guacamole in the molcajete we received as a wedding present, and cooked up a batch of my mom’s delicious baked beans. The crisp, light flavor of the Bud Light Lime® was the perfect complement to our classic BBQ fare.
The guys manned the grill, and stayed cool in the heat of the charcoal smoke with their Bud Light Lime® bottles. Huge kudos to Sevi’s hubby David for stepping in as grill-master! My husband, Holden, is still a grilling rookie, and happiest providing moral support from the sidelines.
And of course, my inner fashion blogger couldn’t resist the opportunity to pose for a summery OOTD picture!
I purchased this adorable watermelon cooler bag a few weeks ago and have been dying to use it! It was the perfect accessory to keep my Bud Light Lime® bottles cool and close at hand.
When Holden and I bought our first home nearly two years ago, we dreamed of parties just like this. But I couldn’t have imagined then the incredible friends who would come into our lives to share those memories. Grateful to them for helping us celebrate the beginning of the summer and to Bud Light Lime® for sponsoring our sunny soirée!
Bud Light Lime® is the perfect beer for summertime refreshment – and it now comes in a cool and unique new bottle.
