Favorite #1) Enjoying a cocktail on the patio with my new B & B candle!
Favorite #2) Enjoying my coffee on the patio! It has been cool in the mornings! So perfect! Also, on this day, I did my nails. I have been enjoying this light blue OPI color. This makes it look like I never leave the patio but I swear I do all the things in between the coffee and the cocktail.
Favorite #3) This is my oldest niece who just finished her first year of college. We got to have brunch together on Tuesday and it was so nice. Have I told you I’m aunt to 9 nieces and nephews? I love being an aunt!
Favorite #4) Role Reversal! During the school year I go to bed at 9 because I get up at 5. Now hub is going to bed earlier than I am. During the summer I try to stay up until 10 and then get up between 6-7. I came to bed Wednesday night and someone was quite comfortable on my side.
Favorite #5) O.k., I don’t want to speak too soon, but I have walked every morning so far. I realize it’s only been 4 mornings, but I’m proud of myself for not putting it off. I’m really good at excuses. One morning I took Ernie with me and let him off leash. He gets two walks a day but I need to do a brisk 30 minute without someone stopping to sniff. He slowed me down a little bit, but on this day I also took an after dinner walk.
Favorite #6) This is Kroger brand, but I’m sure other brands are out there if you don’t have a Kroger. This will open up a world of possibilities for cocktails and non alcoholic beverages. My friend recommended this: half of a stick of this powder with pineapple sparkling water. It tastes just like a piña colada! I didn’t have pineapple sparkling water so I used a splash of pineapple juice and non flavored sparkling water. So refreshing! I’m thinking this will be good with rum and some light fruit juices. I will let you know after I spend time in my “cocktail test kitchen”.
Favorite #7) One of the things my niece and I talked about at brunch was our plan for this sweet girl – our 17 year old German cousin who is coming in a few weeks. This picture was taken in the summer of 2016 when my family of four got to visit for 2 weeks. She loved Starbuck’s as much as I do!
Favorite #8) Speaking of Starbuck’s, I remembered to get my 50% off drink Thursday afternoon. I tried an iced mocha macchiato with coconut milk. I have a hard time trying new things because I don’t know how to order – so many words!
Favorite #9) Thursday night music and food. I cooked for 5 nights in a row and I was done. We got some Chinese food and listened to a cover band.
I don’t know what we are doing this weekend yet. Some of it is weather dependent.
Hope you have a great one!
