Have Yourself a Great Long Weekend


I hope you all had a fabulous Fourth of July!  The Hubs had to work, so I took the kiddo to my parents house and let them hang out with him while I napped.  We have a great view of the fireworks from our bedroom window, which would've been really romantic if the Muffin Man hadn't woken up due to all the loud noise and started screaming.  I figure we've got another four years or so before he's no longer terrified of fireworks.  Sigh.

It looks to be a busy weekend around these parts.  The big grand opening shindig for The Restaurant is tomorrow, so the Muffin Man and I will be braving the crowds to support the Hubby's new venture.  Here's hoping it's not too hot and/or humid so I don't look like a complete frizzy-haired wreck in any photos I may be forced to take.

Chris' work schedule combined with the scorching weather has me in search of quick, no-cook dinner ideas.  This salad sounds delicious! (Plus I love Dinner, a Love Story)

I'm planning to spend some time in the garden today, and I'm so glad to see that my hatred for Impatiens is shared.  Herewith, a few alternatives.

I was so excited to see that Daily Candy has the cocktail recipe for the Lillet Spritz from Trois Mec.  It's  absolutely delicious!  They give it to you as a complimentary aperitif, and I liked it so much I asked if I could order one with my meal.  Perhaps releasing the recipe signifies that I'm not the only (annoying) customer in LA?

I'm having a leafy green obsession these days.  I hope this isn't a sign that I've been drinking too much Kale-ginger juice, but I'm digging leaf prints on everything from swimsuits to powder rooms.

Enjoy your weekend, chickadees!

xoxo
