But, I have some fun reading to keep me company.

Check out my beach read!

Cocktails & A Christmas Story

Sunday, December 18th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Decorate the tree…check. Buy presents…check. Watch little Ralphie beg for a Red Ryder BB gun in A Christmas Story…check! Once you have taken care of everyone else for the holiday season, treat yourself to a classic film and some festive cocktails. Paying homage to this film are some tasty libations that will be perfect for that lazy snowy afternoon in front of the TV. And in case you didn’t know, TBS will be playing the movie continually from Christmas Eve to Christmas Day.

Fragile! It must be Italian!

Emmy Emmy Emmy!

Thursday, September 15th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

You all know how much I love an awards show. The Oscars are like Christmas to me, so the Emmys must be Thanksgiving! Yippee! And you know I have to have some fabu cocktails to quaff while hollering at the television – don’t fib, you know you do it, too. This year besties John & Holly will be on the red couch with me, critiquing the gowns and hairstyles, so it has got to be good.

My friend, Kate, from NYC, sent me the most delicious ideas. Kate, you think of everything!

What are Kate and I mixing up for Emmy Night?
