Oh Barefoot Contessa!

I think we all know I am not a great cook.  I really feel sorry for my husband and child because I am not the best at cooking meals for us.  It's something I just need to bite the bullet and do!  Our family from the U.K. got here safe and sound yesterday and they are at the zoo with Grana now ♡

When Terence's cousin Adrienne got here she started cooking right away in my kitchen.  She just whipped up dinner for the babies last night and I woke up to eggs and toast this morning!  Talk about great house guests....I have my very own home chef right now!  I should be the one cooking for them, but I have no idea what I would even make besides popping some Pillsbury cinnamon rolls in the oven.  More than likely they will end up like this.....Oh Lordy!

One of my favorite people to watch is Ina Garten aka Barefoot Contessa.  She has the most awesome house and garden on the coast.  I would kill for her garden.  Seriously. 

And Jeffrey, her husband, apparently only comes home on the weekends?  What is up with that???

At least he always comes bearing gifts from the cheese shop or a bottle of wine!

Lucky Ina!
The most hilarious site. ever.

"Oh Jeffrey!  Lets go down to the beach and have dinner tonight! 
I'll make your favorite and we can have cocktails and toast to your trip next week!"

"What do you do while I'm away Ina???"

"Oh I'm buying more denim shirts and working on all my new recipes honey!"

Terence and I were watching 30 Rock the other night and this dialogue was on the show....I cracked up!

I was browsing around on Etsy the other day and I found this beauty!
I really want need this because Connor as started to eat my earrings and tangle all my necklaces. 
He just loves to get into the things on my night stand and dresser! 
I am without a car today.  I left mine at the house for our fam to use.  I asked my co-worker to get me a Starbucks because I was going through withdrawals.  She happened to be going to a place right next to where I used to work and stopped into that particular Starbucks.  My old Starbucks buddy Brian wrote me a sweet msg on my Starbucks cup!  He misses me  ♡  I miss ya'll too!!!  I used to go every day and they are the BEST Starbucks peeps out there!
Happy Hump Day!

Oh I love these! I am obsessed with Ina!!

Re: Jeffrey not coming home. He is actually the former Dean/current finance professor at Yale Business School, hence why he can only come home on weekends :)

He is also in stocks and investment banking and an industry leader in the banking industry as a whole.
