bbq house

This property is HOA-Free.

This is a long one, because it involves a growing escalation of actions. TLDR at the bottom. Some terms are translated because I don’t live in an English-speaking country.

We moved houses last year, to the ugliest in the street. The previous owners must have loved Mondriaan, because the front was red/blue/yellow in windowframes and door. One paintjob, many thankful neighbors and several months later, I get an invitation to a voluntary “Collective of inhabitants”, the terms read like an opt-in HOA that you can never leave. A long list of restrictions, and no benefits? No thanks.

AU Idea prompts based on actual events in my life

idk i saw a post similar to this and thought it was cool and some pretty weird/somewhat interesting things have happened to me over the past couple years so i thought I’d give it a shot. lemme know what you think and maybe request something? yeah ok cool 

  1. I’m at a food truck festival with my friends and you’re the hot dude who’s working the bar and I keep looking at you and every time you catch me staring I fall or trip or drop something and I keep hiding like a loser and pretending you’re not there
  2. I’m on a road trip along the coast with my friends and we’ve reached this tiny coastal town hours away from home and you work at this fancy as shit restaurant we entered and I’m awkward and stuttering because we don’t really want to eat there but you’ve already asked if we want a table and also you’re cute so we stay and i embarrass myself a little more
  3. You’re the cute guy that works at the local supermarket and i have a huge thing for you but everybody knows this including my parents and when i come in by myself you tell me that my parents came through and asked him to take a selfie with them so I’m going to go and die now
  4. We used to be best friends years ago but had a huge falling out so i blocked you on everything except one and years later you drunk message me on new years eve and we try to start all over again 
  5. OR We used to be really good friends but we had a fallout over money and years later you message me asking for closure so i agree to meet you for coffee with the intention of cussing you out but we accidentally become friends again
  6. We met at someone’s party a year ago but have never spoken and suddenly you show up to my house party/BBQ and now everybody thinks we’re dating/should date
  7. Im at the movies with my family/friends to see a film we’ve been counting down for but we get into an argument with other people over seating and you’re the staff member who tells us we have to move but you served me at the candy counter earlier and were really nice then so I’m super confused and start giving you attitude
  8. I sit next to you in class and you and I both have another class to get to in 5 minutes and we’re supposed to get our draft assignments checked by the lecturer but he’s taking too long and we bond over mutual impatience
  9. OR we sat next to each other in the first class and wouldn’t shut up about needing coffee and ever since then you ask me if i’ve had my coffee every day.
  10. We work together at the same place but you work in stocking and i work in the foodcourt and every time we have the same shift you come to buy lunch from me and always ask for a big mac because you know it annoys me because fuck you this isn’t mcdonald’s you can shove your big mac


also i tagged some people in the tags - just tell me if you want me to untag you pls 


Bbq Brisket Burger with Steak Fries 🍟 by nnnicole32


Had a beautiful run yesterday morning!!

I got up early (ish) to hit the road and it was a beautiful morning! Not too hot and sunny. I just trotted along and enjoyed my run! It was a great start to my day :)

After my run I made these great pancakes! They hit the spot and were so pretty.

After that I had a SUPER productive day! I mowed my lawn, went grocery shopping, returned my recyclables, and cleaned my house. All of the things!! I felt so good after though.

And then later I went to a BBQ at my friends house! It was super fun. Such an ideal Saturday :)

Hope you all had good weekends! :)



With all our busy work this week we found the time to take the van for a drive and have a little BBQ by the sea on the cliffs of Zennor as a reward.

We were treated to a beautiful sunset and I couldn’t resist getting my camera out to snap a few shots of the van, although it would’ve looked a lot nicer if it was sky blue not dirty white. Still, it was a perfect evening. The best part about living on the road is that everywhere you go is your home- watching the sunset from in bed out the back of your home with a blanket wrapped around you is an unbeatable feeling.

If there’s three things we’ve learned so far from driving a van it’d be these:

  1. 1) You have to take corners much much slower, or you could find all your stuff sliding across the floor and the van leaning over precariously on two wheels as you drive.
  2. 2) Everything rattles. A lot. The faster you drive, the louder the roar of tools and a shitty plastic dashboard becomes.
  3. 3) Vans get stuck in mud really easily. Especially at 2 in the morning in the middle of nowhere on the moorlands of Cornwall. Traction grips are a must, but we conveniently left ours behind and had to flag down a car of young girls to help us push the van out of the mud (we’re very sorry!).

It’s  straight back to work next week after our rare day off- we’re getting so close to being able to move in now.

Hi! Could you do an au about clay and tony telling their parents/coming out? Thanks!!!

1. Clay and Tony have been dating for around 3-4 months before they decide to break the news to their families. Clay wanted some time to get adjusted to the dating life and become comfortable with his sexuality - Tony has been nothing but patient and supportive.

2. They decide to hold a BBQ at Tony’s house to announce the news. They figure it would be the easiest to let both of their families know at the same time so they could deal with all their questions and pictures once. (Tony’s mother made a scrapbook of all her favorite memories)

3. Clay wears a flannel button up and skinny jeans, while Tony sticks with his signature leather jacket and boots. On the ride over to his house, Clay thinks about everything right and wrong that could happen. He snaps out of his daze once his parents tell him they arrived.

4. The families chat and mingle for awhile, Tony and Clay sneaking glances at one another as they wait for the perfect moment to announce their relationship. As everyone finishes eating, Tony beckons for Clay to come over. (“hey, you ready to do this?” “as ready as I’ll ever be.”)

5. Tony asks for everyone’s attention, and as soon as he gets it, he explais why the BBQ was held in the first place. He proudly grabs Clay’s hand and proclaims that they’re boyfriends, as they smile and blush. Clay’s parents cheer and Tony’s family yells, “finally, it’s about time!”

6. Once the excitement dies down, Clay’s parents hug him and say how happy they are that he has someone as caring as Tony. His dad makes the joke about when the ‘aha!’ moment for his sexuality hit him, which causes Clay to laugh embarrassingly. Tony’s brothers slap him on the back and say that he chose a good one.

Chapter 1 - The Meeting

Shannon was grateful for the break from all the craziness touring involved. It also meant he could focus on his coffee business, a passion he’s had since forever.

He was supposed to meet with Travis in one of the shops Black Fuel had. It was one of the smaller ones and also the place they handled the website orders.

Everything seemed to be running smoothly and he was grateful at Travis for keeping everything in order while he was away.

He entered the shop through the front door, grabbing a coffee on the way to his and Travis’ office.

I know you’re thinking that I’m not boyfriend material. How would you? I’m the beast incarnate, I absolutely destroy people in the ring. I’m not the biggest talker. I don’t appear to be a guy who can wine and dine you or take you on special dates. I don’t look like the guy who buys his girl flowers and chocolates on Valentine’s Day.

This is why I a writing this letter because I am determined to prove to you that I can be one of those guys.

 I want to be able to wine and dine you, whenever I want.  I know a long list of restaurants that we can try out, from Japanese to Indian to Chinese to Greek to Italian. Even some good old fashioned BBQ and Steak houses. I can have be a proper gentlemen. Where ever you want to go, we’re go. I won’t just take you to restaurants, I want to take you on long walks, take you on small breaks.

I can be the guy you want, I just need the opportunity.

I hope you can find it in your heart to give me a chance
