3 cheers for BUTTER!

Last night I made K a DELICIOUS pasta dish with zucchini fresh from Jen's garden. 
I couldn't help but photograph it next to hydrangea from my mom's garden. :)
I cooked the zuch in BUTTER (since it was only for I didn't want to exceed my WW points the night before weigh in...and I enjoy cooking the way I would if I wasn't so point savvy ;) )
with just salt and pepper and a little garlic powder (one of my best friends in the kitchen)
I must say it came out beautifully :) :) :)

Now...all I can think of is our ANNIVERSARY WEEKEND!!
This Saturday we will celebrate SIX YEARS of wedded bliss...
Even though sometimes the bliss may feel fleeting...and being in a lifelong partnership is WORK (and don't let anybody tell you it isn't) I couldn't be happier with the decision that I made.  Even though we were young...I know that I married my best friend and my life's comic relief (as I said in our vows on that hot July day)

This weekend we are headed for Mohegan Sun and we have dinner reservations at my favorite restaurant, TUSCANY.
There is a beautiful rock wall with fountains in front (where we will have a pre-dinner cocktail...I'll get a COSMO because I will be feeling so FABULOUS) and then we will dine on the most amazing food...I've been stalking the online menu all week!!)
(I got these off google images...I promise to take better pics...even if K is embarrassed...I will make him stand in front of things!! HAAAA!!!)

Now...the only question is......................
WHAT DO I WEAR?!?!?!?!?


  1. Sounds like a lot of fun!! Picking clothes is always the hardest thing...I always go with whatever makes me feel most beautiful (which is whatever fits me the best and is something I love...even if it's not super trendy!). I hope you guys have a blast.

    Also, just wanted to say that I love reading your blog...very entertaining!

  2. Go for the black ruffles!!
    Simple, but oh... so... elegant.
    Stripy sandles? If you have them!
