It's a Birthday Day!

Today is my Mister's birthday. This is the eleventh birthday that we've celebrated together. All of his thirties and on into his forties.

I love this man more every day.


The Mister has declared this song from Genesis Live Over Europe to be his birthday song of the day.


We're hoping for some good news on a job change today so keep your fingers crossed and send positive birthday vibes into the atmosphere for us.

I confess...

This week has been a little sad for me since yesterday would have been my mom's 58th birthday. I just wish she could have been here to meet the Mister and see me grow up to become a business owner and eventually meet her future grandchildren. I sometimes think that having her gone gets harder as I get older.


I confess...

This rug rat got a surprise bath this week after meeting at the door like this. I want to know why pets get into this kind of trouble when you need to leave to be somewhere in less than an hour.


I confess...

It's another massage weekend so I'll be trying to cram all our weekend chores into a Friday afternoon before jujitsu class. I also have to finish my course reading tonight so there hasn't been much time to play this weekend.

As busy as these weekends can be, it's hard to believe that there are only four left before my black belt and massage exams. This year is moving so fast, and I still have so much preparation to do!

Wino Wednesday: Five Summer Fruity Cocktails

We're in full-blown summer here in South Carolina, which means that it's time for summer parties (preferably around the pool) and lots of refreshing summer cocktails.

We all know that I'm typically a red wine drinker, but when the temperatures are up, I like my cocktails fruity and frosty. I think fresh summer fruits and chilled white wine are the perfect combination for a refreshing summer drink.

Summer Fruity Cocktails

Can you really beat freshly-pick strawberries of a juicy, ripe peach when it comes to flavor?

Here are 5 fruity cocktails from around the blogosphere to make your next summer party much more refreshing and fun:
  1. Strawberry Moscato Lemonade from The Taylor House
  2. Blueberry Riesling Slush from Blooming in Bedlam
  3. Pineapple Sangria from Living Locurto
  4. Peach White Wine Slushies from 4 Sons 'R' Us
  5. Raspberry Chardonnay Cocktail from Sunny Sweet Days

Wino Wednesday is a monthly party where we celebrate our love of wine and wine-related life. Mark your calendar for the second Wednesday of each month, pour yourself a glass of vino, and make some new wine-loving friends.
