Hello Friends!  How have you been?  I know, I know, I skipped our coffee talk a couple weeks in a row.  No excuse except I was on holiday and didn’t spend much time poking around the internet.

We spent ten days in France and it was wonderful!  It had been almost six years since we were in Paris, and I have to say, it was beyond fantastic to be back.  I love that city!  We also, spent some time in Gascony seeing friends, and then hoped over to Chinon to see our friend Jamie.  It was a whirlwind of a trip but it was very good!

I am home now for a solid month, and looking forward to hunkering down, playing catch up, cooking and shooting.  The past two days of being back have left me completely overwhelmed with work as well as jet lag, so I am looking forward to a mellow weekend.  A good friend of mine is in town, and we are doing ladies brunch on Saturday.  I love catching up with her as it always feels like we just saw each other.  Great to have friends where you just pick up from where you left off.

Do you have big weekend plans?  Kids back in school yet?  Where did summer go?  I ran into Target this morning to pick up dish soap, and was consumed by back to school and now they even have a back to college section.  You have go to love marketing!

I am sure all of us can relate to having a friend who always complains about the same things.  Loved this read!

I am in need of new sunnies and wanted to get a pair in France but never found any that really caught my eye.  My new favorite store has these and I am almost ready to take the plunge!  Hoping they are not too pink.

Just before our trip I treated myself to white jeans.  I have always wanted a pair but felt my bum was not worthy of them.  I love them!  So cute, and they don’t get dirty.  Do you own a pair of white jeans?  What do you like to wear them with?

Heidi has hit it out of the park with this amazing Flank Steak with Asian Chimichurri Sauce.  We love all of the ingredients in the marinade as well as the sauce;  orange, ginger, mint, basil, cilantro.  It truly is a party for your tastebuds!

It is not a lie that I love oysters but getting them from a vending machine is a bit much!  Do you agree or disagree?
