Last night he announced that we would be driving the motorcycle. Um, WHAT?!?! I have not ridden that thing more than three times, and two of those times were around the yard and into the pasture. I am NOT a motorcycle gal. I have given every excuse in the book to him in the past 12 hours as to why we should NOT drive it. Seriously, where is everything going to be packed? You know what he told me before he left this morning? To take either a comb or a hairbrush. WHAT?!?! I quickly declared myself a sissy and not adventuresome, to which he just laughed, smiled and said, "Yes, you are." I am already getting anxiety thinking about going around curves so close to the pavement. And there is no swaying his mind once it is made up. Please. Pray. For. Me.
What will I be packing for the weekend? Good question. Since I couldn't get a final answer on what we will be packing our things into, this is probably I will be able to take. Do you think it would fit into a fanny pack around my waist?
Gotta share this deal that I snagged yesterday. I noticed a new resale shop last time I ate at one of my favorite delis. Yesterday I went it to find out their policy for consigning with them. While I was there I spied this little baby. Yep, Milly, new with tags. Not my size, but Emily will be getting a package in the mail next week.
Have a wonderful and safe weekend!

1 shot triple sec
3 shots tequila
1/2 shot black current liquor
1/2 cup blackberries
1 6-ounce can limeade
1 cup crushed ice
Combine the all ingredients in a large pitcher. Using a big wooden spoon, muddle the blackberries so they are pretty much all crushed up in the drink. Serve with additional blackberries and a lime wedge.

1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. white pepper
dash black pepper
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 c. milk
2 tbsp. vinegar
2 c. mayonnaise (Hellman's)
3/4 c. crumbled blue cheese
Blend together dry spices then add the Worcestershire sauce. Add the milk then let it sit for a few minutes, to dissolve the spices. Have the mayonnaise measured out as well as the blue cheese crumbles before you add the vinegar to the milk mixture. Add the vinegar to the milk mixture. It will start to curdle; this is normal. Add the mayonnaise and whisk together well. When blended, add the Blue cheese crumbles. Warning: this will make a lot of dressing, so if you don't want much I suggest cutting it in half.

24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you ahead of time...
36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[f] but only the Father...
42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

I am the kind of person who is completely overwhelmed when I walk into an H&M or Forever21 store. The H&M was HUGE, but I walked away with only jewelry. On the other hand, I went into Zara, where I haven't shopped in-person in years, and could have purchased many items. I snagged a couple of striped shirts and a green linen tunic (of which I cannot find a picture).
Tibi made me swoon. I've been in the St. Simons store before, but there is just something about being in Tibi on Wooster. Yep, I tried on lots and lots. I adored so many of the prints, but there are lots of blues right now, which really are not my color. This top picture is probably my favorite pattern right now. But, I could not find something that I just loved in it.
I also tried on a dress in this pattern, but it wasn't very flattering.
I ended up getting a solid, classic dress, which is so beautiful. (Thank you Mom!!)
This dress I tried on in a light lavender/mushroom, fell in love, found out it was sold out everywhere in my size, and resorted to having it shipped in charcoal, which is stunning.
I did treat myself to a little iPhone cover. They make them for suckers like me!
And even Em got a little something special from Tibi on Wooster.
I could not figure out what to take home to Bryan, but when I walked in the Saks chocolate store I knew exactly what he would love.
There were also other small things purchased here and there. The Young Designers Market had such fun stuff, and I did pick up a few items. Some are gifts that have not been given yet, so I am not going to post pictures.

Bryan cut down extra long cane when he cut some the other day for me to use with my tomato plants. I haven't used a cane pole since I was little! Such a fun, sweet date!

After dinner we headed over to the Dove Parlor, where we had reservations for cocktails. We did not spend a single dime. I guess New York men have never seen beautiful southern girls, so the free drinks just kept flowing. (In our heads we tallied it up and they spent well over $1000 buckaroos!!) Drinks were had at multiple locations during the trip, but this was the most note-worthy.
Friday night we ate at Alta, where the tapas were amazing. Of course we all shared, but I ordered the Pulled Pork Empanadas, Angus Beef Sliders in Turkish Yufka Pastry and my favorite, the Warm Crab Salad.
Kara and I spent Saturday by ourselves going to an assortment of places all over the city. We at lunch at Bar Americain, which came highly recommended by her parents. I had the Boston Lettuce, Poached Egg, and Buttermilk-Blue Cheese salad.
Our best dinner was saved for last. It was at Buddakan. Sound familiar? If you watched the first SATC movie it is where Carrie and Big have their rehearsal dinner. You know the big, long table? We sat right beside it in the swankiest booth with a full view of the place. You walk down stairs into a large room, with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. Beautiful. The Carrot Dumplings and Edamame Dumplings were wonderful appetizers, and my Hot and Sour Scallops were probably the best I have ever eaten. Just about everyone else had the Kung Pao Monkfish, which was also incredibly delish.
