Feeling Shady

shady1/2/3

There appears to be a theme developing in my last few posts, spring spring spring. I think I am extra excited because the land of my birth (Minnesota) is currently still in the 30’s and snowy, so sucks to be them.

I’m heading out to a destination wedding in Cancun for the 4th of July, and I am currently in the market for some new shades. I am currently leaning towards that peach number in the middle, but would love some opinions.

Spring has Sprung! Let’s Drink

We are topping out in the high 70s today, the sun is shining, the trees are starting to bloom and the birds are chirping. After what felt like the longest winter in the history of since I’ve been alive, spring finally decided to get out of a bed and come to the party.

Now that its here, all I can think about are bike rides in the park, drinks on the patio, and the sun still being out when I leave work at night.

Despite living in the middle of no-where Brooklyn (which is just between recently “hipsterfied” Brooklyn, and “there-is-no-way-in-hell-I’m-going-there” Brooklyn) I’ve got a pretty great view of the Manhattan skyline from my roof. I can not wait to hang out up there with some summer drinks in hand, and with my sister coming to town this weekend there is no time like the present.

I came across this delicious looking lemonade while looking around on Elisa and Emma’s fantastic blog. I think it sounds perfect for a Saturday afternoon and I can’t wait to try it out! Emma’s suggests adding a splash of bourbon to it, which I think sounds great.

Do you guys have any recommendations on spring drinks and cocktails? I’d love to get some ideas.
