    It all looks delicious and mouth-watering, even on a Friday morning! I’d love to exchange my mug of coffee for a blueberry vodka spritz!! I’ll be out of town on Memorial Day, but I’m saving your recipes for another time.

    And you look terrific in your hot pink top!!

    I definitely want to try this drink. I love all the ingredients. Usually we have a large pool party to kick off summer, but this year it will be just my husband and myself. (And our 2 dogs). Planting the vegetable garden and some flowers in pots, bringing up the pool furniture, mowing. A perfect weekend plan! Enjoy your weekend. Hope you get some nice weather.

    Love your summery outfit. That color is so flattering. Still in the low 60’s where I live so I will have to wait a bit for shorts and sleeveless tops.
    The cocktail looks so yummy. Can’t wait to give it a try.

    Those pork chops sound amazing! I copied the recipe to my files. My husband likes to grill so that’s his job. I’ll do the side dishes. In the South it always potato salad, sliced tomatoe, onion and cucumber salad with Ranch Dressing. Blue Bell Vanilla ice cream for dessert.
    I love this shade of pink. You look very pretty. I just bought a raspberry color that I’ll probably wear on Monday. I won’t wear white shorts. Regular blue jeans because I can’t be trusted not to spill.

    That’s a good color on you, Beth! You look great, and I’m so psyched about your knee–it’s looking wonderful. The pork chops sound yummy–I love the idea of letting them marinate overnight. Sounds like a perfect, light meal. And the drink looks and sounds delicious. Happy Memorial day weekend. We also had 6 1/2″ of rain the last two days, and so today was stunning and clear, fresh air–I went for a long, delightful walk. Hope you all can relax and enjoy family around. The pups look like they get along well–they’re sweet.

    Beth: I don’t see a link to the Blue Willow plates; is there a vendor? I really like those!

    Memorial Day Weekend Greetings to you and your family, Beth. We’re privileged to honor the memory of those who gave their lives to assure our freedom remains intact. Want to say you in the OOTD are ushering the start of summer beautifully! You wear that raspberry tone so well. Love the pics of Oscar and Pax. They’re right where they belong…with the Djalali Family! Bet Ollie agrees 🙂 Thanks for all you do~

    Happy Memorial weekend! Love your pnk top. Always enjoy your Friday’s with Oscar. What a rainy week here in NC. The sun came out today and then by 5pm another thunderstorm rolled thru but all is good. What is Hairot Verts? It looks like a green bean. Have a good one.

    Finally tried this cocktail. Absolutely delicious. Will be making this again and again. Thank you.
