Simple Pleasures Saturday #4

Yesterday was my Stepdad's birthday so we celebrated with his favorite dinner, roast beef & yorkshire pudding (he jokes and says the reason he married my mom was for her ability to make yorkshire pudding like his grandma), and I made a ridiculous chocolate cake with fudge buttercream, shredded coconut & chocolate ganache. One word - YUM. Today we had a wonderful brunch and lounged in and out of the pool with absolutely perfect weather!!

Today my simple pleasures would be:

♥ The coconut smell of Hawaiin Tropic sunscreen
♥ A really good belly laugh
♥ Dipping my feet into a pool that is the perfect temperature
♥ Winning a game of couples Bocce Ball
♥ Two home-cooked meals from mom

I hope your weekend is off to a great start! What simple pleasures are you enjoying today?
*Sidenote - that is my brother's puppy and he LOVES to swim
and also float around on the raft! It is absolutely hilarious!!
