My Green Flash List

Tomorrow completes spring break for us.College Boy1 has already left and College Boy2 leaves tomorrow. The day before they leave is the hardest for me. I tend to sulk internally knowing what is coming. This past week everything was as it should have been, selfishly, for me. There were home cooked meals around the kitchen table, dinner at the sushi bar where the owner/chef was happy to see us walk in all together, the ironing board made one of its… [Read More]

Spiced Tea & Autumn. “Mmmm.”

With the windmills of my mind on Autumn this week how cute are these mugs from Crate & Barrel, one of my Happiest Places On Earth? Paired with Halloween Hot Cocoa… … or make your own spiced tea ~ 2 cups orange flavored drink mix (e.g. Tang) 2 cups white sugar 1/4 cup instant tea powder 3/4 cup lemon-flavored instant tea powder 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground cloves DIRECTIONS In a large bowl, combine orange drink mix, sugar,… [Read More]

Sonic Boom Felt In ‘The OC!’

The first Sonic in South Orange County has opened. I have never been to one and have only seen the commercials on TV. This one is on a lot the size of a postage stamp and people are so enthralled with it that they are parking two streets up in a Target lot, walking to this place and standing in line outside of the restaurant. For any SoCal gals out there in the Pasadena area there will never be another… [Read More]

Class of ’09 Dehydration

With Teacher Appreciation Week over and my platters still needing to be picked up from the luncheon, I’ll be heading back to the high school one more time, the last as a parent. After weeks of semi-silent complaining to ‘just get it over with’ from being weary of concerts, banquets, award ceremonies, quick dinners and if shirts and tuxes were cleaned and pressed I now want everything to slow down, stop and just hold this moment in time. Having all… [Read More]

Toting For A Good Cause.

I just love Nantucket and since I’ve written about my love affair before I’ll spare you the wonderful details but whenever I find something related to my special island it captures my attention. This Ralph Lauren tote is a collaboration between RL and the Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) to restore the Gardiner’s Compass Rose Mural which is from the 1930’s and happens to be located on the side of the RL store. All proceeds from the sale of the tote… [Read More]

One could only wish but these are Stuart Weitzman. All will look lovely this summer on PCH and Forest Avewalking to the Pageant of The Masters. You must come visit!

I Spy Nantucket!

I have had a love affair with this tiny island since visiting when I was young. I introduced my new husband to it on our honeymoon 25 years ago and to our sons a couple years back. As I sit over 3,000 miles away from the cobblestone street and quaint gray shingled cottages, I like to spy in on one of my Happiest Places On Earth and wish I was there. The Hub on Main Street has a webcam that… [Read More]
