TWTW - Mother's Day edition

Friday night MFD & Hank played at The OT in Langhorne. Beers and talk and home by 12:30. Boom. Locals, The OT has decent food and live music on Friday nights. Check it out. 
Saturday was weird - it started out humid as F but nice. The afternoon was peppered with torrential rains that made me lazy and loll around on my bed reading magazines.
The dogs loved the laziness, of course, and supported me taking eight hours to transfer my spring/summer clothes out due to breaks for: magazine reading, Caddyshack, Point Break, and Titanic. After the clothes swap was done, MFD and I ordered dinner and caught up on The Good Wife. Witness how close Mae wants to be to my face all the time.
Sunday morning - nails (Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Rosy Outlook) and coffee on a gorgeous morning.
Mom tour: visits to my stepmom Carol, my mother-in-law, and my momma who most of you know by her comments (click here to see her blog post Mother's Day Musings with the Dalai Momma from yesterday).
Some weekend food:
1 - First burger off the grill of the year. Can I get a hell yeah? Hell yeah.
2 - My favorite hoagie is always a Lee's Hoagie.
3 - This week's breakfast muffins are the kitchen sink variety. I needed to use up some mushrooms, olives, blue cheese, and tomatoes. So in it all went.
4 - I tried a new dip: pepperjack chicken dip. Pretty good! I added green onions because I add them to everything. The link takes you to a pin with my modifications.
5 - Crockpot shredded chicken caesar for dinners this week in various forms: salads, on whole wheat buns, etc.
Not pictured: cantaloupe, strawberries, kiwi, celery, and carrots for snacks.

On Mondays I'm doing a picture linkup with Kelli at She Crab Soup. If you'd like to participate, here are the prompts through July. This is my photo for the prompt Mom. This is my mom in her natural habitat - outside next to her pool, under an umbrella.

Tomorrow: the next installment of Shit MFD Said, including his latest Groupon adventures.

I hope you all had a glorious weekend. Tell me something good from yours.

  2. Once again, a faboosh Weekend That Was. I still can't believe the Dalai Momma gave you a hat for me. My heart kinda melted when I read that bc I was having a rough day yesterday (and it had nothing to do with the Phils blowing a 4-1 lead in the 9th...) Anywho

    My cousin was on last night's episode of The Good Wife!!!! She was an extra sitting in the courtroom, to the right and directly behind Matt Czordry (???) with short dark hair, a dark V neck shirt, next to an Indian guy. She's famous, lol

  3. Beautiful day yesterday! Perfect weather. Topped off with a visit to one of my favorite places OCNJ boardwalk for Sean's Red Bull game. That's a great place to go for a soccer game! Wish all the venues were at the beach!
    So happy to be there! Crowded, too. Would not like to do that back and forth drive all the time, though. There's no place like home!!!!! Thanks for the essential oils. Can't wait to use them. Love your MOMMA

  4. What a lovely weekend and that you had a nice "round" of mom meetups :). I love that you describe your mom's natural habitat as next to the pool, under an umbrella! She sounds awesome.

  5. The weather in PA has been pretty nice lately, but yesterday it got really hot where I am. I had to put on a tank-top and capris, which I didn't think I'd have to do until next month. I'm glad I had shaved, haha. Sounds like you had a nice weekend though. I had a bit of a lazy day yesterday while I hung out with my mom, which I haven't been able to do in, I don't know how long. It was nice and I hope to do it again REALLY soon!

  7. Hi SMD's Mamma! I love all your mom pictures, it's so nice to see where bloggers "come from". I'm all for being lazy too, good things the dogs are there to encourage and enjoy your breaks.

  8. How nice that you got to see and spend time with all yo' mamas!!!! :D
    Rainy days are the BEST every once in a while. Nothing better than listening to the rain as you fall asleep.

  9. My Saturday was exactly... I mean exactly, like yours and it was glorious. I love a good lazy, lay around on the bed day. In between other stuff of course!

  10. Being lazy is the best! I didn't get to do much of that, visiting my parents in NY this weekend, but I did get to see my grandma on Mother's Day (I only see her twice a year since she lives in Florida) and got a free manicure so that makes up for the lack of lazy.

  12. Awe, Mae!!!! I love how cuddly and sweet our puppies can be!

    Being lazy and eating is my favorite way to spend any day. Ever.

    I love the Sally Hansen Salon polish. One coat is really all you need of it, which is perfect for my slacker self!

    Have a great week!!!!!!

  13. Your nails = LOVE! Your saturday also sounds pretty freaking perfect. I'm hoping we get a good downpour this week while I'm off so I can just sit and read and listen to the rain!

  14. Lee's Kosher hoagie is the BEST!

  15. I will totally give you a hell yah for that burger and the chicken dip! I add green onions to everything they add such great flavor without being too overwhelming!

  16. I spent a lot of time lounging this weekend too and to be honest I need a little more ZZZZ!

    ReplyDelete
  17. YES to MFD and the groupons! So since I don't cook or pinterest, I miss out on all of these dips but my aunt made one yesterday and I loved it. I definitely get the hype and green onions do make everything better. Now I want a vat of cheese for lunch...

  18. Sometimes the rain is the best way to get your booty into gear and clean closets!! And then be lazy for a few hours!! So much for the sunny days we had this weekend...it's raining like crazy here today. :( Glad you guys had another nice weekend with friends and family.

  21. Saturday was so oddly humid! I honestly was so lazy I didn't even leave my bed. I made up for it by cleaning obsessively Sunday :)

  26. We had a lot of rain too - but Friday night. I would have enjoyed it had I not been stuck in traffic! Whats the deal with Mae? Did you eat something good, and she was hoping for some leftovers?

    ReplyDelete
