Belated Weekend Recap: BBQ, pumpkins, & other adventures

My weekend was quite enjoyable. Hunter and I relaxed yet got things done. It was a fantastic balance. Let's get on with it, shall we?

Let's get the obligatory dog pic out of the way. This is merely one of the random that are snapped of these beasts, natch:



Winter Garden Farmer's Market y'all. This is a wonderful market with so many awesome vendors. We went for both biz and for pleaz. I was interviewing an artist so when I was done we wandered around for pics and scenery. Gorgeous area, btw. We had some down home deliciousness for lunch, aka Harry and Larry's BBQ. If you ever find your self in the area, don't think twice about this stop. If you don't find your self in the area, find a reason. Their brisket and cole slaw is no joke.



Now this next weekend recap is a special one indeed. Hunty and I purchased new pots and pans. We were gifted a wonderful set of pans when we first moved in together years ago and they have served us well, these cooking instruments. It was time though and we had time so we ventured out and sought out a fabulous set I have been eye balling. Not only were they an amazing sale price but we had an additional discount to apply. They are this fun ombre orange set and we have been cooking just to cook so I can test them out. Love, love, love them. Be still, my domesticated heart...



These are just some of my fave pieces lately:



The weekend winded down with some new publications:

A lovely weekend indeed. Of course to end it, during a late dinner Sunday night I bit down on something and managed to hurt a back moler. Um, owww. Es la vida, no?

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:

"I strongly believe if you work hard whatever you want, it will come to you. I know that's easier said than done, but keep trying"-Beyonce

I think it's safe to say at this point we all know who Beyonce is and that she does in fact rule the world. Need further prove from anything else you may know as evidence of this? Allow me to share an observation...

Whilst walking for some fresh air and cardio Sunday morning, I found myself jamming to the Beyonce station on Pandora, a first in a long time I will add. Now, with other stations powered by a specific artist, one will find other artists taking up residence on that channel as well. Not in this example. While I admit I did skip a few of Bey's songs, sorry girl, only once did an Alicia Keys song play and once it was Destiny's Child (It was Bugaboo for the record and yes, it was as fabulous as I remember. I also need to remember to dig out my pager from storage). Anyhow, all other songs, whether prompted by skipping or what came next, was Beyonce every.single.time. There we have it; further proof Beyonce is queen of all the lands.

Let me be clear, I am tota…
