you're a grand ole flag

Hello, hello! I’m back from the other side of the world and so glad to be home. But I’m currently suffering from what some may call post-vacation blues. Back at home in the big AR, no beach in site, having to do such things as laundry and cleaning—what’s a girl to do?

Luckily, these blues are well-timed with Memorial Day weekend, a long weekend in celebration of our freedom as Americans and all the brave men and women who have served to insure our freedom. A HUGE heartfelt thank you to the troops for their sacrifice to our country. We would be remiss not to celebrate in their honor.

And who am I if not patriotic and willing to don my best reds, whites and blues in honor of this three-day weekend? I hope your plans include a barbeque {or two}, hours in the sun and perhaps a cocktail or two—if only to be patriotic, of course. In the spirit of the holiday weekend, I will be breaking out my favorite summer drink—the Arnold Palmer (or John Daly, depending on who you ask). You can’t go wrong with sweet tea vodka and lemonade, truly a summertime treat. What will you be sipping on this weekend? Any summer-time cocktails to share?

P.S. High fives to Jena for rocking out the blog in my absence. Clearly, my presence wasn’t missed much. But I’m happy to be back and pulling my weight around here!
