Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Can you believe that next week it will be Labor Day, the unofficial end of Summer – where did August go? I don’t know about you but I don’t rush to put away my summer clothes and break out the Autumn gear.  I like to leisurely linger into Indian Summer by continuing to wear white jeans and sundresses.

Last year I did a few Labor Day DIY’s one of which was upcycling a Sundress into a Maxi Skirt, you can read that post HERE.  Today I am wearing that Maxi Skirt with a mustard-color blouse thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill) and Wedge Sandals from Target.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Last week at Pockets Discount Liquors they had a taste testing of Ciroc‘s new flavored Vodka, Amaretto.  I had previously purchased a bottle but never opened it, so I was curious as to the taste – ooooo it was nice and smooth!  I’ve had the Peach flavored Ciroc but like the Amaretto better, it’s not as sweet which makes for a better mix and it would also be good straight over ice.

I am not a big Vodka drinker and I need some cocktail ideas…so you know I had to check out my “cuzzy’s” Vlog.  Here she is making her “Thank You Lawd” Cocktail, which I might try using the Ciroc Vodka…and a few other ingredients!

Do you have any cocktails recipes you want to share?

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

On Sunday hubby and I celebrated our 23rd Wedding Anniversary and had dinner at our favorite restaurant, Chesapeake Inn and Marina.  This lovely restaurant is located in Chesapeake City, Maryland on the waterfront and overlooks the C&D Canal.  We have enjoyed having our Anniversary dinner here for years not only because of it’s location which is only 10 mins from the house, but because it has the best seafood and the atmosphere is enjoyable.

Before leaving for the evening our son took a few pictures of us on the back deck.

Hello Friends and Happy Thursday

As per yesterday’s post here are a few more pictures from my day trip to Marlton.  It’s was so lovely that is made the drive on the Jersey Turnpike bearable.  Unfortunately I lost the sense of serenity when a rainstorm hit driving home!OOTD 7 23 13 022  Thankfully, I don’t have allergies

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

For me Thursday is the best day of the week, we’ve made it through Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and start to look forward to the weekend. Thursday is a heads-down day at work, tying up loose ends, finishing up the weekly to-do list in anticipation of an easy breezy Friday.

Thursday is also a day of reflection some even define it as Thankful Thursday. As we rush through the week from one event to another, it’s nice to take a few minutes to think about and then speak aloud for which we are grateful. Speaking positivity into the atmosphere is a good way to keep life’s trials and tribulations in check.

It’s finally Friday and the heat is on!

I am so ready for the weekend and tomorrow’s plans include clearing out my little garden because the mint has taken over! I want to add some basil, peppers and tomatos and get a few flowering baskets to hang around the deck.

It’s time to fire up the grill and spend evenings sitting outside, I love this time of the year!

What are your plans for the weekend?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Today we officially open the pool for the season and despite the cold temps, Pool Care Specialist will be onsite to reassemble the parts and add the necessary chemicals.  Every year I think about  purchasing a better pool cover so that the water won’t be too dirty when opened in the Spring.  It’s been over 10 years and I still haven’t gotten it but thanks to the mild winter it doesn’t look too bad and by Memorial Day weekend it will be sparkling clear.
