Nonner's Nachos

Our youngest nephew Connor just turned 5 and he's marvelous.  We wanted to find a great gift idea that would be interactive and provide a fun experience versus picking out another set of Legos.

Whenever Connor comes to our house for a weekend visit we cook.  Specifically, we make French toast.  He knows when he wakes up that it's time for his culinary abilities and promptly lets me know--and remembers the vanilla more than I do as well.  He also cooks at his house and my sister in law loves to cook so I'm excited for them to have more fun with his new gear.

We picked out an apron and chef hat and decorated it slightly to be official for Connor to lead the way for Nonner's Nachos (one of his nicknames) and Quesadilla a la Connor (actual name).  Once we're done cooking, we have the proper material markers so he can decorate more his style and have his apron ready to go for when he's at home and helping Mama cook too.

Love getting creative with gifts and having fun.  Not much beats those two details in my opinion.

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!

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…
