Why hello. It’s Monday today. Just figured I would pop in for a quick post to let you all know that. In case you had forgotten. Colleen is still in California and I am still at my house. But I managed to have a perfect weekend that included cupcake baking, a viewing of Godzilla and eating of Milk Duds, a hiking expedition to Crowder’s Mountain, a nice little dinner party with a few friends, cupcake eating, and then a lazy lazy Sunday. Man do I wish I had brought my camera to Crowder’s as it was lovely, however, we took the Rocktop Trail back from the summit and parts of it included scaling some serious rocks so I may have broken it. That would suck. Anyways, I did take a couple pictures of my table setting which I felt pretty good about even though it was super simple and just included some glasses, linens, etc. that I already had. Sometimes when I am trying to decorate for something it is fun and exciting to buy new things and make crafts. But it is also cool to remind yourself what a pretty little setup you can create with things that you already had laying around and in the 25 minutes before your guests arrive. The flowers I bought on my grocery trip to Trader Joe’s this week but the real star of the tablescape was the gurgling cod pitcher. It was given to me by some of my best friends a couple years ago when I was so jealous of one they had received for their wedding. Aren’t they thoughtful and generous? There is something really satisfying about the glug glug glug sound it makes when it pours water. The cupcakes I baked for dessert were strawberry basil with strawberry basil cream cheese frosting. They were delicious if I don’t say so myself and I will be sharing the recipe later this week.
Let’s keep our chins up now. It is a Monday but this weekend is Memorial Day weekend and therefore a long one for many of us. We can make it!
