A few things

Did I ever mention that weekends are my favorite?  Well it’s here and I’m ready to celebrate a long one.  We are heading to Philly for the HoagieNation Tour presented by Daryl Hall and John Oates, featuring TRAIN!!  We went last year and it was fun, but this year’s line up is even better!  I’ve also never done the cheesesteak thing, so we are heading to Pat’s and Geno’s for lunch to compare.  I’ll let you know how that goes…

On to things I am loving and coveting lately…

Remember I said on my bucket list for J’s house that I was painting his front doors and shutters?  The other day at Target I stumbled upon a seriously thick mat that will lay nicely across both doors.  It’s super thick (maybe 2 inches) and will look nice for visitors. Most importantly, you can’t beat the price of under $35.  I saw ones that were similar for way over $100!  The dimensions are 48″ x 22″ and the quality is superb.

 

 

This weekend I am hoping to plant some flowers in my front planter, as well as purchase and plant two for J’s porch.  These two images by Eat at Jack N Jill’s provide some serious inspiration for both of our houses!

For our Memorial Day BBQ, I’m thinking of making this Summer Corn Salad.  I’ve made many versions of this salad in the past and nothing beats the freshness of corn off the cob and ripe tomatoes, mixed with a little feta and lime.

Is anyone else obsessed with Meghan Markle these days?  I love her cool approach to style.  Everything she does looks effortless and chic, including her wardrobe.  And can we talk about her wedding dresses while we are on the subject?  Especially the high necked stunner she wore to the reception!?  If she’s your girl crush too, check out this article from The Everygirl on How to Get Her Chicest Looks for Less.

If you’re in the process of curating your reading list for the beach, look no further.  Here’s a complete list of must-reads for this summer by PopSugar, courtesy of my cousin.  Some novels haven’t even been released yet!

Happy Memorial Day and have a restful long weekend!

Just like I love fine wine and dark chocolate, I'd love to hear from you too!
