Oh So Happy Hour!

It has been a long couple of weeks....many great things happening but I flew almost 5000 miles in 24 hours. In a middle seat. With no cocktails.  But this weekend is going to be fabulous and I am kicking it off with a little elixir so delicious I have to share. Take a sip of this and you too will make it your new summer cocktail.

Moscow Mule:

1 oz vodka
1 oz fresh lime juice
over ice in a rocks glass
Topped with ginger beer
Stir. Sip. Sip again.

For those unfamiliar with Ginger Beer, it is not the same as Ginger Ale and it is not the Ginger Beer of yesteryear that actually contained alcohol. Ginger Beer commercially produced in the US does not contain alcohol. This drink will be just as delicious without vodka for my non-drinking compadres.

Have a fantastic weekend and lets enjoy this OH SO HAPPY hour.

Grip and stroke

It is going to be a gorgeous day in Georgia. Shall I work? No. Shall I clean the house? No. Shall I don my sundress, sunhat, and accompany my husband on a car ride? Yes. We are taking the day off after a rather hectic quarter end and going to spend the day lolling around the greens at Augusta National Golf Club watching this:

For you golf aficianodos, you know this is one of the four majors and the only time of year I am allowed to step foot in the place. Those old Southern gentlemen running the place certainly like their rules. No cell phones allowed on property. Period. And pimiento cheese sandwiches by the truckload. But it is going to be amazing. And getting tickets, well, it would be easier to plan to see a unicorn. As luck would have it, we are in.

Have a gorgeous day! I know we will.
