Thoughts on Thursday.

I posted! I posted! I feel like there are not enough hours in the day lately so I have definitely been neglecting my blog, as well as reading and commenting on my favorite blogs. Makes me kind of sad and out of the loop! 

Here are some random thoughts as of late....

-Last Friday night we went out to Freshfields' Music on the Green night to celebrate Alicia's birthday. These are one of my favorite nights during the Summer. Live music, hanging out with good friends, and a BYOB/BYOSnack type of atmosphere. I knew I didn't want to drink beer (makes me so full) or wine, so I popped into Total Wine on my drive home and picked up some Skinnygirl Cucumber vodka. I followed this recipe on Skinnygirl's website that turned out to be SO good and refreshing! Perfect for a warm Summer day. 

  • 1½ parts Skinnygirl™ Cucumber Vodka
  • 4 mint leaves
  • 1 large basil leaf
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 3 parts soda water
  • ½ tsp. agave nectar

Squeeze lime wedge into rocks glass. Muddle lime wedge with mint, basil leaves and vodka. Add ice. Top with soda water. Add agave nectar and stir. Garnish with lime wedge.

-Saturday we enjoyed another boat day with Emily, David, and Lane. He is becoming quite the boater in his young age! 

-I always screen shot interior design pictures on Instagram (as well as food pics) and file them in an album on my phone. I snapped this one from Honey and Fitz and it just confirmed the fact that I NEED a spindle chair in my life. 

-This week started out as a typical crappy Monday. I took on two new properties Monday so I was feeling a little overwhelmed with that to start off with, and on my way back to the office from an onsite meeting to another meeting, I managed to hit the corner of our building with the side of my car. Ugh! The damage isn't completely awful, but it sure isn't pretty, and it definitely brings down the value of my already low-valued car. Is it bad of me to hope someone will give me a love tap in the same area so that they'll have to repair it? 

-Starting tonight, we have a very busy and exciting weekend ahead! Our good friends, Justin and Jenny, are getting married! Cameron is a groomsmen, so we will be attending the welcome party tonight, rehearsal dinner tomorrow night, and of course, the wedding Saturday. This is going to be a FUN one. Cheers to the future Lews!

That's enough rambling for one day. Linking up with Natalie and Annie!

  1. I have two of those spindle chairs in our living room and am obsessed! I’m going to get them re-upholstered in a lighter fabric, but they’re such comfortable chairs!

  2. Love, love, love music on the green! Especially before it gets too hot out there later in the summer. Hope you have a great weekend celebrating your friends!

  3. That drink looks delicious, lady! And that chair is fabulous!

  4. I always screenshot stuff from Instagram! I wish there was a "save" option so I don't feel like such a creeper! Haha!

  5. Mmmm you have me wanting that delicious drink and to hang out outside with friends listening to music--it sounds perfect. That spindle chair is insanely gorgeous!!! Now you have me thinking I need one in my life, too.
    I'm so sorry that Monday started off so crappy. I hope that the damage to your car is relatively inexpensive to fix--I know those accidents can add up quickly, ugh! Have fun at the wedding festivities this weekend!!

  6. Have the best time at the wedding!! Love that chair...and the pillows...and really all of it!

  7. That cocktail sounds delicious! I'm a fan of cucumber vodka, so I'm definitely going to have to try it.

  8. Spindle chairs are divine. I think I need one too!

  9. Yum, the Skinnygirl Cucumber Refresh looks amazing! That spindle chair needs to find its way to my house too, I love it! Xo, Stephanie

  10. That drink looks divine! And omg, that spindle chair! Also, I do the same wih food and drink, but I never file them. I need to get more organized! :) xo
