Thirsty Thursday goes Tiki

I hosted Happy Hour at home on Thursday for a bunch of ladies.   The evening was so much fun it has been decided this will be a yearly event, if not more often.  I had originally scheduled it during a bitter cold snap, but the day turned out so warm and lovely, we hadContinue reading “Thirsty Thursday goes Tiki”

WPC: Time (for a party)

It time for Mardi Gras, Memphis style.  I got invited to a LSU alumni Mardi Gras ball and boy did we laissez les bon temps rouler. I made a large wine bottle full of the original Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane cocktail.  There was none left at the end of the evening.  My band of merry revelers alsoContinue reading “WPC: Time (for a party)”

Toast Tuesday: Rye

In case you are just joining in, this year I am drinking more adventurously and following Jeff Cioletti’s book for 52 ways to get out of my comfort zone.  Since I blew my budget on week one, this time I just went with a sampling of cocktails featuring rye. I also learned a lesson withContinue reading “Toast Tuesday: Rye”

Flangiprop Friday

This has been a short week for some of us. In case you missed it, Monday was Columbus Day. Short weeks almost feel longer than a regular five day work week. There has been some resistance to the happiness project at work. I do not understand why these folks would rather grump and be miserableContinue reading “Flangiprop Friday”

meet me for margaritas…

In my move to a new city, I’ve been toying with the idea of making a calling card, or personal “business” card. But really, what’s the point of a card? Everyone has smart phones and giving out your pertinents has become quick… assuming you have an initial conversation. While I’ve been trying to decide aboutContinue reading “meet me for margaritas…”

I’m on a roller coaster

I’ve started half a dozen posts. Each one tells a different story and has a different emotional bent. My emotions and thoughts about this move have changed every 15 minutes. One minute I’m sobbing uncontrollably, the next I’m laughing, and the next I’m bored. I’ve been ready for a change for awhile and I knowContinue reading “I’m on a roller coaster”
