You want to know what went really fast? The weekend. Whooosh!! So fast that I recall fragments by bits of color like green, orange, and chocolate brown.

I recall Friday in green due to a mouth-watering meal that Hubs and I ate at this place. I had fried green pickles served with a side of green goddess aioli as my appetizer. Yes, let me say it again--FRIED, and it was worth every. green. bite.

Saturday brought me a little package that opened bursting with orange--a delicious orange tote, covered with pomegranate print. It is so beautifully made, and came as a giveaway win from this friend and blogger!! Thank you!!! The tote is now home to my growing blanket throw that I am still knitting (can anyone give me a hallelujah for knitting progress please??).

Chocolate brown:
Sunday was chocolate brown Hershey's bars and gooey, white, burnt melted marshmellow flanked by crispy honey graham crackers. It was s'mores, by the fire pit, with the neighbors, guilty as charged. (Watched Clue again recently, love that movie..)

Happy Monday


Weekending with Amanda!!
