Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip." ~Winston Churchill

I'd like to dedicate the title of this post to you, Monday. Although, I happen to be off work today and have already caught laundry up, exercised for an hour and a half, had lunch with a friend, and now I am posting here. I'll take a win for $500, Alex.

The weekend was fabulous. Among workouts and being outside with the dogters a whole bunch, we also started the Netflix series House of Cards and let me just say, wowwwww. We love it and ran through the first seven episodes of season 1 in one sitting. Kevin Spacey was phenomenal before this and now he is quite possibly my favorite actor ever. Cannot wait to resume it tonight.

We also visited with our Roberts family. Connor, aka Nonner, is more adorable every time I see him. He now gives his own high fives without prompting and also "bumps it" on your fist with his. To.die.for.people. And man does he love uncle Unner:



My Tori, I adore this darling girl:


Hmm, what else, what else. Ah yes, hair! Got my martian man transformation on and wa-laa. I love my stylist Marie. She is by far one of the greatest in the world:




Magnolia Bakery was one place we visited repeatedly on vacay in NYC a few summers ago. I follow them on Twitter and they posted this over the weekend. Just perfection:

That was my weekend and I hope yours was awesome and filled with cupcakes, health, and happiness too.

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!

Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink -Lilly Pulitzer

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
