Barbecue spatula + bottle opener

Over the weekend, we drove out to my dad’s place to celebrate Father’s Day with him. We had planned to grill out at the lake, but temperatures were around 97 degrees, which was just too hot for grilling outside! We opted to grill at home first and then make our way down to the park.

It was the perfect opportunity to bust out our stainless steel barbecue spatula from Cave Tools. Burgers and hot dogs were on the menu for lunch, so the spatula came in handy.

Spatula perks:

  1. The spatula is very well made and is heavy duty. Perfect for flipping burgers or even brisket!
  2. Easy clean up. The spatula is stainless steel, so it is dishwasher safe! #wifeapproved
  3. Has a built in bottle opener!!! Perfect for house parties or tailgating in the fall(one of my all time favorite events).
  4. The spatula has one serrated edge, making it super easy to half your patties.
  5. Easy to store hook.

This product is perfect for the man or grill master in your life. My husband really loves how sturdy and easy it is to use. It has a very long handle so it keeps your knuckle hair safe. He also likes that it has a bottle opener built into it. If he has to be outside grilling, at least he’s got easy access to his brews. :)

You can find this barbecue spatula on Amazon HERE or on the Cave Tools website HERE. Cave Tools is also offering 15% off your order with the code SPATULA15.

Happy Grilling!!!

4th Anniversary: What we did

We celebrated our 4th Anniversary on Thursday, April 20th at Mattie’s. Green Pastures just reopened after a year of renovations in early March so we thought it would be fun to go back to the place where we got married! We called a week prior to get a reservation and there were only two time slots available, 5:30 and 9. I guess the reopened restaurant is still pretty popular! We picked 9 and decided to go early and get drinks on the patio while we waited for a table to open up.

When I arrived, Scott was already sitting at the new bar off to the left when you walk in. I went to join him and grabbed a glass of wine and we both made small talk with the bartenders. Of course I had to mention that it was our Anniversary and that we got married there 4 years ago. Shortly after the cat was let out the bag, they were pouring champagne, the host walked over to let us know a table was ready for us whenever we were ready, we were given a tour of the newly renovated space and comped our first round of drinks. We felt so special!!! We got the royal treatment and this was all before we were even seated for dinner!

We ended up being seated in the upstairs room next to a window over looking to oak trees in the front of the property. It was very romantic and intimate. We ordered a bottle of wine, a few starters before the main course. The service was incredibly fast! We didn’t quite get through the pate and rainbow carrots before our main dishes arrived. Scott ordered the fried chicken and I got the ruby red trout. I tried Scott’s chicken before I dug into mine and I thought he might have ordered the best dish again this year, but I quickly changed my mind when I had my first bite of mine. Both dishes amazing!!! Not only was the service fast but the food was incredible. I love the new menu.

We exchanged gifts the morning of our Anniversary before I walked out the door for work. If we can, we like to go by the traditional Anniversary gifts and this year it was flowers/fruit/linen/silk depending if you go by modern/traditional or UK traditions. I ended up getting Scott a hammock for our newly redone backyard, along with a few other smaller things he needed/wanted including a new headlamp, a hat and some mango wit beer from one of our favorite breweries. Scott got me some flowers, a new water bottle, and a full spa day complete with a massage, a facial and a pedicure. I was BLOWN away!!! It was the sweetest thing. I can’t wait for my 4 hours of pampering.

Anniversary: Year 4

April 20th, 2017, Our 4th Anniversary! Last year I recapped the highlights of our 3 years of marriage so this year I wanted to share our wedding cinema! I’ve never actually shared these videos on social media so this is the first time I’ve posted them for the public. We’re planning on going to dinner at Mattie’s at Green Pastures. Green Pastures has been renovating their event center and restaurant for the last year and they finally opened up early March. We’re excited to back go to the very place where we got married 4 years ago!
