the week in photos.

happy friday.

I hope everyone had a grrreat week. the presidential election has come & gone. we happened to escaped any snow. I discovered [J] can mix a mean cocktail, which I featured on the blog. and then last night, while out, I drunkenly happily had the bartender create us a {peach + apple cosmotini}. it was a good week, you could say.

the week in photos ..

  1. nothing better than a breakfast of fresh fruit. [thanks to iowa girl eats, I purchased & seeded my very own pomegranate. they’re an intimidating fruit].
  2. you know how I love samples – green mountain coffee sent me four kcups to try! [can’t wait to try the wild mountain blueberry].
  3. it may be too cold for iced coffee. or maybe not!
  4. on the night of the presidential election, [J] made me a scrumptious salad & my FIRST peach + apple cosmotini.
  5. the world’s best breakfast [or anytime meal]. yummm!
  6. business meeting over coffee. [hopefully I’ll have some exciting news to announce soon!].
  7. I’m the proud owner of two copper mugs. bring on the moscow mules.

have an amazing weekend all.

peach + apple cosmotini.

ladies & gentlemen – I have a mixologist on my hands. and I couldn’t be happier.

I asked kindly for a cocktail. and [J] delivered his amazing rendition of a cosmopolitan martini. [when I say amazing – I mean I had four. sue me ..it was the night of the presidential election. and I needed a dang cocktail to watch the coverage]. thanks to my asking for ‘said’ cocktail something good has now come out of the election. hahaha. JOKE .too soon? ok.
