Good morning friends, how was your weekend? Our weekend was relaxing with many hours spent reading on the front porch, I am really going to miss my wrap-around porch but hopefully the next house will have something similar. The weather here has been amazing; sunny spring days and nights with a light breeze. I cannot recall in the 14 years I’ve lived here the weather ever being like this. Typically, this time of the year it is too hot and humid to want to spend any time outside much less still have the windows open.
Yesterday we spent the afternoon with Lawrence, and then his neighbors whom we have never met came over and had dinner with us as well. It was an evening filled with lively conversation, scrumptious grilled steaks and chicken and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Lawrence and I are currently planning our Memorial Day weekend menu so far we have the basics, burgers, potato salad and brownies.
Did you purchase any of the dresses from Christopher John Rogers collection for Target? I ordered this colorful cobalt blue dress and I could not love it more. It is beautifully made, fits perfect and it a statement piece to be sure. I also ordered this dress , again it is beautifully made but I ordered an extra small and it is too big, there is just too much fabric in the dress and the sleeves. My initial thought when I tried it on what that I looked like a clown. There were a few other bright beautiful dresses in the collection but they were sold out.
I just started reading The Happiest Man on Earth, have you read it? All I can say is, Eddie is an amazing man. Are you reading anything interesting? Do you have a summer book list? I think I am going to make one, do you have something that you think we “must read” this summer? Personally I like to read light, chick-lit, beach reads in the summer and save the heavier topics for Fall and winter.
I hope that you have a wonderful week my friends, thanks for stopping by!
