Just Cannot Say Good-Bye

Step 1: Admit Problem, Step 3: Problem Solved

Now, this is not to say I am a hoarder, au contrairemon frère! Hello, my name is Sarah and I cannot throw away magazines.  I simply cannot get rid of magazines with an article or two that I find useful, or can use later on (which then gets forgotten because it is in the stack with all the other magazines). Sigh – I must simply come to accept that I am a work in progress…which i just read a great article about a few months back, now where did I put it?

First Days of Summer

Since today is the official start of summer, it is only fitting that todays temperature here is Carolina reached 88 F with a balmy 67% humidity, drum roll please!, which makes it actually feel like 100 F! PHEW!

Time to break out the chilled beverages and jump in the pool, ocean, kiddie pool, sprinkler or garden hose, lots of grilling, drinking, laughing, and bug spray. Here is to the best summer yet!

Cheers!

Cheers!

I Could Do Without…

So yesterday we had one of our freaking awesome Carolina summer storms: lots of lightning, thunder, wind and rain for all of 20 minutes. Along with Carolina storms, there is the usual power outages for HOURS – ugh. So, as Hubby and I were laying in bed trying not to move so we would stay cool, I got to thinking: How in the world did our ancestors survive without air conditioning??? 

I would not want to do without……plumbing. I cannot imagine nothing more miserable that having to get up in the middle of the night and go use an outhouse!

So, what modern luxury could you do without?

Battle of Bunker Hill

Rebels they called them

"And so it has happened, a real bloody battle, not a skirmish like Lexington and Concord, but something that will go down in history"

Such Sweet Dreams

Being an adult has its privileges: no curfew, staying up as late as you want, talking with whomever you wish, eating what you want, watching that scary movie right before bed, having that extra cookie… But on the other hand, there is no one but yourself to pay the bills and fix the plumbing.

Sigh, I have to buy new sheets…plus I have a Cal King (what, I like the room to move at night) so this will be a nice chunk of change. My lovely Calvin Klein’s are going thread bear. 

Does anyone know where to get these fab sheets for less????

Just Another Manic Monday

Well boys and girls, we had a wonderful weekend and made it through Monday; it is all downhill goodness from here!

Here is the nitty gritty news from today:

Obama: Yes we can! Bribe poor countries into taking our prisoners (so this is why we get up and go to work and pay our taxes – just incase you were wondering)

Is nice yes?

Is nice yes?

Now Hiring: I love beer, you love beer, These Guys make beer and jobs too!

Good for what Ales ya!

Weekend Update:

Cinnamon Rolls and Road Trips

Ok, so my cinnamon rolls did not look exactly like the original recipe , but they sure were tasty enough to pass the Hubby Seal of I Want More. Dough was made from a buttermilk biscuit recipe – savory, not sweet, which was a nice change from the usual sweet doughs and a good balance from the filling. All in all, they were easy to make and a success, and will take many more times to prefect the pretty factor.IMG_0918

Saturday Hubby and I decided to get out of town for a change of scenery, so we dropped the FoxMonster off with the grandparents, packed a cooler and headed off to Isle of Palms and Charleston. The water was warm and inviting (no swimmnig on this trip), the city as beautiful as always, the tourist as slow as always, and the food wonderful. We came away Red Sided Tourists, but it was so worth it. Check out a few of our favorite spots next time you find yourself in our part of the world.

In the corner room with the rope…

Professor Chuck Norris plowed the field, planted the seeds, made it rain and shown the sun, which grew the cotton that he spun on a loom that wove the fibers into a bathrobe which he mailed to the hotel and placed in the room of David Carradine. When David finished his shower and put on the robe, Chuck Norris scratched his ear and the robe followed its orders that were whispered to it while it was growing in the field. And thus, Chuck Norris earns 2 points in the Game.

Riddle Me This…

If limes have no seeds, then how do we get more limes?

Love a classic margarita like I do: sweet, sour, bitter, and savory? Then enjoy my Hubby’s Classic Recipe:

Makes About 4 Margaritas

Equipment Needed:

Reamer & Microplane & Pitcher & Wooden Spoon

Juice of 4 limes

200 ml Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila

100 ml Cointreau

 1/2 cup Lime infused Simple Syrup (1/2 cup water & 1/2 cup sugar with the zest of 1 large lime)

Stir together, add 3 ice cubes per glass, squeeze a slice of lime over ice and rub glass rim, pour margaritas and let the fiesta ensue!

Superpowers Activate!

So aliens are supposed to be highly intelligent, have huge bald heads, and wield all kinds of mental power. So what if we weakly humans were suddenly like Samson, and had superpowers of hair?

Which hair would reign supreme?
