Move Over, Martha

Okay, in this post, I bragged about my Martha blueberry scones.  Well, this weekend, I tried a new Blueberry Scones recipe I found at Sunday Baker.

Sunday Baker
  Holy blueberries Batman!  I made the recipe just as she said AND I made the Butter Sauce.  Now, the title alone, Butter Sauce, tells you it's going to be divine, right?  Well, it was.  Miss Em was out for the morning so I made them for little Lyl and me.  We ooed and ahhed and mmmmmmd our way though Saturday morning.  You MUST give them a try!

P.S....then we went to the park and ran....:)

Rey Swimwear

Ok, I just had a "wow, I could've had a V-8" moment!

While participating in my secret obsession, PINTEREST, no judging :), I came across this AMAZING swimwear site...
                                                            Rey Swimwear

                          modest, vintage inspired, retro swimwear
I can't tell you how fabulous this site is. Their motto?: "Who says it has to be itsy bitsy?"

I am constantly disappointed and dismayed at the LACK of tasteful, femine, PRETTY swimwear that is available out there...needless to say, my "V-8" moment comes with the sad realization that summer, at least for me, is essentially, over...(sigh) 
                   But, next year....

Good-bye, Hello

Good-bye summer
Good-bye sleeping late and lemon scones
Good-bye long evening suppers and sweet iced tea
Good-bye late night movies and three on a couch
Good-bye brown skin and light dresses
Good-bye walks and talks to wee hours of morn
Good-bye hot nights and bug spray
Good-bye daydreaming and belly laughing
Good-bye summer.

Hello fall
Hello football games and dance classes
Hello well-planned meals and right-on-schedules
Hello old friend memories and new ones too
Hello competitions and out-of-town tourneys
Hello lazy Sundays and much-needed naps
Hello cool nights and warm sweaters
Hello stories galore and hearts full of love
Hello fall.
