Lazy Weekend...

Buddy & I needed rest so we headed for the Eastern Shore... As you can see Bella needed some rest too. She had a lazy weekend at our beach house... (Bella get off that couch!)

Buddy sat on the front porch and watched the traffic go by...
J & J

Jodi & Joey were near by so they met us for dinner. We had dinner with the "newlyweds" at our favorite restaurant in Cambridge called "Portside." Behind J & J is the draw-bridge going up...

I love this draw-bridge that is next to our fav restaurant (Portside). The restaurant is only a stone throws away from our beach house, so we can walk... Over the bridge is the historical part of Cambridge with brick roads and quaint shops. It's a sleepy little town near the Eastern Shore, friendly, waterfront, and the best seafood in Maryland!
Oh.... we had to go home. This is the tail end of the 4 mile Bay Bridge crossing the Chesapeake Bay...that leads to the Maryland Eastern Shore. When traveling to the Eastern Shore, timing is everything~ or you will be stuck in traffic for miles. At home I look forward to trying my new Products from Product Body. I ordered some VELVET Product Body sugar scrub, and Joanna (owner of Product Body) was super super sweet & thoughtful to tuck in goodies like: Pink Grapefruit cream, yummy Butter Scrub & a WOW of a Bath Bomb Fizzy.
I love the new bail container shown with the Velvet Product Body sugar scrub. I plan on re-using this earth friendly container to hold notions in my craft area. Great idea~ Joanna! I love all these products! What a way to end the weekend....ahhhhhhhhh

What a wonderful weekend you had! Dh is a former Delawarean, and used to hit the beaches in MD, DE, and NJ, so we know what you mean about timing your travel.

The newlyweds are just as cute wearing their regular clothes as they were in their wedding outfits!

What a great way to spend a weekend! I'm looking at the glass in Buddy's hand and wondering... could it be a lovely Pinot Gris? Mmmmmm!

We experience the same traffic timing issues when we go to Gerry's parents' house on the Cape (Cod, that is!) It's only about 1 1/2 hours from Boston, but it's been known to take 5 hrs to get there! Timing is everything!;)

Have fun with Joanna's Product! Yum
And, I do love the bail jars, too!
xoxo

ps. Max wants to know how come Bella gets a couch and he doesn't?!

Teresa~ Traffic yes, anywhere around here near the grand ole' Eastern shore...

Suds to love~ We, or at least I did try to relax. It was just too darn hot to stay outside (100 degrees)...nothing like air-conditioning at times like that.

Jackie~ Yes, restful~ and so nice to see the newlyweds!

Ginger~ Oh my gosh-you are right~ it really was a very blue sky. There is was right in front of me, and it took someone else to notice for me to notice how beautiful it was. Thank you.

Heather~ Oh my gosh~ we have vacationed at Cape Cod, and we would time when to go out and about. I've never seen anything like it, except here in the Washington D.C. area on the beltway~ but if I remember in Cape Cod~ it was one road with two lanes. I miss up north...

Max~ Yep, I've got a couch to fit ya... don't tell your mommy...

And oh- I think Buddy had a cheaper wine in the glass. He had several glasses of Pinot Gras at the restaurant, and I think it cost as much (or more) as the meal itself. Bad boy!

Bella looks like she's claimed the sofa. :) I hope it was an enjoyable weekend!
