TWTW - the one con las madres

Bruce and I were on the beach by 5:30 Friday morning, which is my preferred way to start any workday. 

I was working by 6:20 and I killed it Friday.  Lunch included a drive and bringing my personal email box to zero. After work my aunt, uncle, and cousin arrived to stay the weekend. Bruce went for a long walk and tried the porch out for the first time. I showered and read out there after having my favorite dinner and some weird dessert of leftover ice cream and popcorn. Bruce and I feel like we live here now and go home to visit other people in our family.
No sunrise Saturday because it was pouring around 5:30 so I slept in. We took a long walk and checked out flowers around town. My youngest cousin worked on getting Bruce acclimated to people and it was very successful. My neighbors re-sided their half of the house and gave the old girl a new topper all the way across at the tippy top. I spent some time working on About the House/Around town for this summer's guests, which I should have had done at least three weeks ago, and cleaned windows before we left for Philly at noon. 
Saturday evening at Stephen & Aubrey's celebrating Mother's Day with Carol and hanging out with the snuggliest Baby Seeeeve and the hilarious Lola Jean. 

Sunday morning was a shit load of laundry and changing sheets. Weekly food prep: a big salad for Stephen & Aubrey's on Saturday, jalapeno popper dip and corn dip for Aubrey's mom's on Sunday (corn dip will be on the blog soon - it used to be on here and who the hell knows what happened to it but it's not anymore), baked chicken thighs and potatoes and mashed sweet potatoes. I am going to make a spinach egg dish later in the week too.
Debbie got me a hilarious poop set and flowers and made the Geege charm she got me for my birthday into a protection bracelet with stones I requested. She's the best!
We had a really nice and relaxing Mother's Day celebration at Aubrey's mom's. The food and company were awesome!

Hope anyone who moms in any way had a great weekend! 

PA friends, I trust you have your voting plan for tomorrow's primary? Check out the Committee of Seventy's Digital Ballot tool - dem and rep candidates, and they have the ballot questions as well - those registered as independent should be going and voting on them! Everyone can vote on the ballot questions even though PA has a closed primary.


  1. That bracelet!!!! I love that.
    I love you get up to soak in those sun rises! That's living!

  2. I'm hoping your corn dip recipe is the same as mine! We love that stuff and it is so addicting!! I actually made a Skinny Girl version of it from Pinterest this weekend and we liked that one, too!

  3. I love that you share your sunrise photos because my ass is too lazy to get up to see it myself and those pictures are always gorgeous. Looking forward to your corn dip recipe. I tried one a few months ago when my brother and sister-in-law visited and I wasn't impressed with mine, so I'm still on the lookout for a good one.

  4. Your shore weekending is my favorite.
    I wish we'd have had Lylee at an earlier age to socialize her properly. She is NOT a fan of kids under 10 and she doesn't like most dogs. Sigh.
    I am so hungry and reading this didn't help... LOL

  5. Kicking ass and takign names on Friday! I love a dinner like that too. What a great celebrations of all the momma's in your life. I love that bracelet, so sweet! Have a great week!

  6. All of your shore weekends have me jealous! That Geege charm is sooooooo sweet!!! Hope you have a great week!

  7. OH. Early voting for run off elections starts today. Thanks for the reminder. Love that you and Bruce are settled into shore life. Given your productivity, I fully support relocation. Love the bracelet, too. <3

  8. Lots of QT at the shore with Bruce boy! Sounds like you celebrated all the lovely Mother's in your life and the bracelet Debbie got for you is such a great reminder of Geege. Perfect, sentimental Mother's Day gift. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  9. I love your relationship with Bruce. That's what Jett did to me...made me love him and now he's more loyal than I could've imagined ever being.

    I WISH I could walk my dogs on the beach like that!

  10. I can't imagine a better way to start a work day!
