What's Coming Up?

I'm off again today.  My last Friday off for quite a while :(  But that's okay, because there is still lots of FUN ahead!

1. Las Vegas for 5 days - I leave tomorrow for Las Vegas!  Sounds exciting, right?  But it's for work.  And my boss is going.  So.....




2.  Lobsters! - I come home from Vegas on Wednesday, and Thursday night we are going to steam lobsters, shrimp and some other seafood mailed directly to us from Maine with another couple (thank you very much Groupon).  Get ready for some WILD pictures, because the lobsters are being delivered.....

ALIVE!

And we are cooking them in my kitchen.  And I had a dream that Louis tried to befriend a lobster that somehow escaped and was on the kitchen floor.  Lord help us all!





3. July 4th at the Lake - Friday we leave for the lake for the July 4th long weekend!  We've ordered some very fancy rafts for TEN and I to use this time:


I love how it's like a recliner, and has a drink holder.  I plan to fill a cooler to put at the end of the dock, and I won't be getting out of this chair all day long :)



4. Cooking class is back!!  Although we won't be meeting every Wednesday anymore (summers are just so busy, it's hard to coordinate schedules every week), we will be getting together every few weeks to cook.  Yipppeee!  Marilyn Monroe will be the hostess for this class.  So excited!



So you see...lots to look forward to!  Not to mention a "Night in Cuba" themed birthday, TEN and I pouring wine at a festival for local winery, a long weekend in Charleston to visit The Real Housewife of Charleston & Mr. Housewife & The Real Baby of Charleston, a summer Cocktail Crawl, a beer festival, a bachelorette weekend, a white party and.....A WEDDING!

Stay tuned...

Busy girl! Those rafts are the bomb! My in-laws bought four of them for the lake recently and they are GREAT. We love the hole at the bottom so your feet can stay cool in the water.
Have fun in VEGAS!

You know, I'd hate you out of envy if I didn't love and adore you so.

Have a fabulous, fabulous, fabulous time. Text pics please. I love to "fill the caption". It's one of my favorite vacay games.

hope you have a blast in vegas even if it's for work, hey there is lots of great shopping to get done on breaks! The lobster feast sounds fun! We have a wedding in Maine later this summer and I cannot wait to get my hands on some fresh Maine Lobster, however I hope Molly the Beagle doesn't befriend one.

when we go to the river, we put our cooler on a little raft and tie it to our other raft or canoe :) We are spending the 4th on lakes too. Saturday at our friends island on a lake 25 min away and then Sunday and Monday on our lake, and I CANT WAIT. I Hope Anika likes her ugly full covering bathing suit and sun tent!
