HEY, it's going to be beautiful this weekend! Get thee outdoors! How will you be enjoying the weather??
1. We went to the cottage last weekend - what a wonderful, relaxing time. Everyone should have a cottage in their life. Whether their own or a convenient friend or family member's beach abode. They are just the best.
2. For the past two weeks, RB and I have been a 1-car household. His trusty, old, ragged, giant, purple car finally bit the dust. He bought a new one but it wasn't immediately available. Hence the 1-car family. Wait - his car breaks down and so I have to go car-less? Something about that doesn't add up... either way - NEW CAR came this week!! WOO!
3. I seriously haven't cooked in two weeks. Does this weather do that to you, too? There's been a lot of sandwiches in these parts...
4. Oh god I saw Magic Mike. I seriously haven't stopped thinking about it. Read more here. Excuse me for a minute...
5. Ok, I'm back.
6. WE'RE GOING TO CHICAGO NEXT WEEKEND. Holy shit. Do you have any restaurant or site recommendations??
