Too Hot For The Hot Tub...

Could things BE any hotter this weekend?!  With record breaking temps and Magic Mike hitting theatres...I mean do I even need to say anymore?!  I'm hot just thinking about it!

Tickets have been purchased for tonights showing and my fave girlfriends and I are now ready to get all diva-ed up and let the blushing and giggles begin!

Tomorrow, as for my usual poolside lounging... well it will be more like submersing myself in H20 the entire day.  No way that even this summer lover can stand 106 degree temps!

Stay cool this weekend and don't forget to check on your loved ones as well as your furry little friends!

Happy Weekend!

For The Love Of Cooking

It is no secret I have a major obsession with Mexican cuisines and I'm pretty sure it's only a matter of time before I actually turn into an avocado or big bowl of guacamole.
I swear, I could live off  guac and salsa alone!

In my "attempt" to add a little variation to the norm I came across this recipe for hummus (which I'm also a fan of) guacamole 

find the recipe here

And will all know that no mexi dish is complete until you add a tasty rita...

I Spy: Outdoor Perfection

Happy Summer (Solstice) Day!!

The time has come to kick off my favorite season...OK who am I kidding, it's been summer in my world since March!

As soon as the workday is behind me I plan to spend every remaining second of the longest day of the year outside.  Preferably with my girlfriends and a citrusy cocktail in hand!

How are you spending the day? 
Hostessing a garden party?

Relaxing with a good book and picnic?

Boating with friends?
If so feel free to pick me up on your way!

Ahh...soaking in the first rays of summer?
This is where you will find me all weekend long!

However you spend your day, make it memorable one and enjoy every moment!

Quote Of The Week

"Getting married before you're 30 is
like leaving a party before 10pm"

A close girlfriend shared this quote with me this past weekend and it is officially a new favorite quote of mine.  Possibly, because I am 30 and still (all in due time) "on the market."

Quote Of The Week

"Paris is always a good idea"
Audrey Hepburn

This weeks quote and pic are BOTH a repeat to the DC blog but, I feel it's absolutely necessary!
A special someone picked up a copy of Midnight in Paris for me (I have wanted to add to my collection from the first night I saw the flick...if you haven't seen it, put at the TOP of your to-do list) this past weekend and after watching the phenomenal movie again my need to go back to Paris and walk the streets grew even more intense!  There is just something so magical about the city.  

Today,  I will just have to settle for a Paris daydream...

Don't Forget to Play...

Happy weekend sweet darlings!

What exciting plans do you have up your sleeve?

I plan to stick to my normal summer routine of poolside lounging with amazing friends!  There has been mention of adding a game of "beach" volleyball into the Saturday routine...
I'm hoping for a total TopGun moment!
