Memorial Day Weekend Recap

How was your long weekend? I experienced a mixture of emotions, but overall it was wonderful and totally not long enough. Turns out, I can be a bit of a procrastinator… meaning on Saturday in preparation for our BBQ on Sunday, I found myself overwhelmed with errands and a long to-do list. To my credit, I have never thrown a BBQ, so I had a lot to learn, but honestly, I know better!!! So to say I was stressed is an understatement, and poor Brian had to deal with me. Though Saturday hit me like a brick wall, I don’t regret any of it, and I am lucky to have Brian who was a huge help. I learned a lot about planning, planning better and oh yeah, planning, but the party was a complete success and so much fun. People seemed to relax, eat too much, drink plenty and basically be merry. What more could I ask for? Here are some outtakes from our weekend:

Lemon Drop Love BBQ{my snuggle bug}

Lemon Drop Love BBQ{Logan being festive}

Lemon Drop Love BBQ{relaxing, soaking up the sun with my favorite little girl on my lap}

{After a minor meltdown, Brian surprised me with dark chocolate covered pretzels that were bigger than my hand, and so good!}

Lemon Drop Love BBQ{finally made it to the nail salon and got a mani/pedi from Marie Nails}

p.s. If you read this post, as a follow up  to the margarita pops, they worked, but they weren’t up to my standards. They were very tasty and spot on as far as a yummy, frozen-margaritas-on-a-stick goes, but they lacked in consistency. They melted and started to fall apart pretty quickly. I think I tried to over simplify it. I will try, try again!!

    3. Does a defense attorney have to file an appearance in a landlord-tenant case and pay an appearance fee? I have filed an eviction and the deadbeat tenant got a lawyer, and she stood in for her to ask for a jury trial. Now I find that she never filed an appearance as her attorney. Thanks

    4. Just checking in to let you all know that I have three poems accepted in upcoming online journals: two in Lucid Rhythms, and another, “Careful in the Fog” (originally titled “Let’s Be Careful in the Fog”), which I wrote for this April’s PAD, will be in the next issue of Tilt-a-Whirl, a journal for repeating poetic forms.

    7. Arturze, byłoby miło, gdyby Pan komentował wyłącznie teksty,a nie komentatorów tekstów.Jak Pan myśli, jak to świadczy o Panu i gdzie faktycznie mamy tu do czynienia z tandeciarstwem?
