Because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing...

Sunday looked a little like this:

Kale, Spinach, Pepper Jack, Onion and Tomato


His and her:


For the win:


Hmm, what else. what else. We both threw on our designated Pandora stations and power cleaned. I'm pretty positive that a cure-all for an ughhh cleancleanclean mentality is the Otis Redding and friends station. How can you not stop and dance when Otis tells you to? That's, like, a sin.

Then, I sat down to do some blogging stuff while Sex and the City played in the background. Read also: SATC is ALWAYS good for the soul. Always.

We ended our day by having dinner with Hunter's parents, sister, and our youngest nephew. Hunter and Connor are what you would call kindred spirits...best friends...homies for life:



My personal fave is the middle one. I mean, is there anything funnier than seeing a little bear throw up his little fist when you say pound it? The correct answer would no. No, there is nothing better/funnier.

The last thing I'll mention is a shout to my gal MM. Marilyn Monroe will always hold a special place in my heart. Her beauty, brains, and want for goodness in the world have always inspired me. Today is her birthday and I do wish she was here to celebrate it and share some awesome stories about life. Since she is not, I share some of my faves of her previously gifted wisdom:

"If I'd observed all the rules, I'd never have got anywhere."
"I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot."
"Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition."
"Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are."

Happy Birthday, my hero. May you throw on a mink and paint it up glamorous.


Til we meet again,
M

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

Off to try, try again!

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 …

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…
