Holiday Weekend, where have you gone?

My, my, my that holiday weekend flew by! All the usual feelings are present and accounted for: happiness from the greatness we experienced; frustration with getting back to the daily grind of reality; and a certain sadness that stems from it all being over.

4th of July signifies the middle of summer so we are now on the descend of the season. I won't be the saddest to see the heat go, if it ever does, but I am eager for fall! I know, I know, no need to get ahead of ourselves. Don't worry, I'm not going to start ordering my white hot chocolate and demanding it in the red Starbucks cup. Yet. Although, I did bust out some new Lauren Conrad boots and tights the other day. I scored the kicks from Kohl's, which were at a severe, severe discount. I got an even better deal than what the site lists them for. Basically, people, it's happy trails ahead!

Over the holiday weekend, Hunter and I ate, drank, and relaxed a plenty. It was fabulous.

There was lunch with friends featuring crab cake bites, sausage and ricotta flat bread, and classic Americana cuisine:


Ready for this one? Bang Bang Shrimp Benedict! Yes, it was as glorious as you can imagine. So were the endless Peach mimosas.


We were able to spend tons of time with our baby girl dogters. Pepper even let us pick what to watch:


Baked super simple peanut butter cookies with only 3 ingredients! The recipe is from Katy over at Sugarlaws and is amazingly easy peazy and quite delicious:


I also whipped up a mini peach cobbler using one bagel thin, 8 vanilla wafers, 1 whole peach diced roughly, and churned some flavor with honey, cinnamon, a splash of vanilla and a teaspoon of butter. Throw a 1/4 cup of vanilla yogurt on top and wah-la!


And cleaned the whole house. Which I do not have pics to document but trust me, it's spic and span. In short, I love long weekends. Why are they not every day?!?!

Til we meet 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…
