Weekend Perfection

It’s actually embarrassing how much my life revolves around food and dogs. Good thing I’m secure with myself.

Our weekend was perfectly lazy…Home cooked dinners, a trip to the dog park, a couple naps and two Starbucks runs. I even made The Husband drink a few bottles of wine with me, we sipped vino tinto and crashed early……It was perfection.

Today my task is to find the perfect bed for our little daughter dog Georgia, I’m going to hit the ushe – Winners, Homesense, Target. If I’m feeling really ambitious, I may even try to craft one up myself, check out these clever dog bed ideas I found on Pinterest!






This is little Georgia, she deserves a masterpiece, don’t you think?

Happy Monday!

Belly Baring

I’m cleansing you guys – because it’s Summertime and baring your midriff is big this season.
I scoured the Internet until I found a doable detox program and the Four Elements Cleanse seems doable. I’ll eat high fiber fruits, veggies and grains and drink a mixture of apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and cayenne pepper for the next 7-10 days. Easy peasy. Except I make everything extra difficult for myself. I overindulged this weekend so I’m starting off puffier than usual and craving a Fritter like a mofo.

It’s been three hours. I have a headache. I want a cup of coffee. I’m gagging over the detox drink. I’ll let you know how I’m feeling in a few days. Happy Monday!






This detox drink better start tasting like a jalapeño martini soon…

Oh Sh*t it’s Monday…

I woke up this morning totally thinking it was Sunday. It’s Monday. So rather than a mimosa on the back deck, I settled for coffee and almond milk in my home office. Oh the hardship we bear.

This made my coffee-instead-of-mimosas-morning much better!

Happy eff’in Monday!

Mojitos and Mondays

This weekend we passed our Saturday at a backyard pool party and bbq, which was graciously hosted at our friends home in a quaint town 20 minutes from where we live — thanks Seyward and Jay! We chilled poolside, got over served on mojitos (thanks again Jay), swined out on lime cupcakes, had a drunken late night dip and partied like sorority girls until dawn. I’d say it was a success!

Sunday was a whole new day, our alfresco affair was fantastic, only I was suffering from a cuban highball comma and found myself cursing the sun wishing I was wrapped in my duvet.  I’m positive I wasn’t the greatest company, but I aspired to be?

Today was back to reality.  Work, gym, laundry, cook, then more work.  I am trying to be more organized so I have devised a “Own my life” list of things I will own throughout the work week.  Here’s my first:

  1. Sugar free – I am giving up sugar for the week, I was on sweet overdrive on the weekend – I’m owning my cravings
  2. Sobriety – I’m having a dry week, I am using the warm weather as an excuse to cocktail every night, it’s criminal. I’m owning sobriety.
  3. Start my bubble chandelier – this requires a post of its own.
  4. Finish all my work for month’s end before month end – and work my little a*s off so I own my vacation.
  5. Buy myself a well deserved pair of shoes – it’s been a few weeks.

Today I was 85% on task for my list. And I was asked to do a very exciting review for a very exciting magazine! It’s been a good Monday. No prescription medication required.

Just one more hour….


Makes me giggle…but so true

Happy Monday
