friday links

Happy Friday! I've got a lot to share with you--let's just jump right in!

Frozen, boozey drinks? Yes please. How about some that don't require a lot of work? Yes please!
Well that's what I found when I came across this fabulous book Poptails by erin nichols, our blogging friend from erincooks.com
Poptails is a one of a kind book that features all the best cocktails in frozen-on-a-stick form. With 60 boozy recipes and 20 full-color photos. These adult treats are perfect for pool parties and barbecues. This is an excellent book for the hostess that wants to stay hip without a ton of work.

Some of the top ones include:
tequila sunrise
irish coffee
bellini (my favorite)
red wine sangria


Wicked watermelon pg. 82

sweet manhattan pg. 54

My local airfield place (cape cod airfield) has a couple new planes on their lot.
The red one is available for biplane rides.

I have some new friends in my backyard.


Went to a local greek festival here on cape cod. As always great food, great people, good times.


And after a greek fest one should always close the night off with ice cream.


Have a great weekend!



  1. love the greek fest pics and the LAST pic -- YES!!!

    omg those nuts from TJs - i did an entire POST about them once b/c I was addicted to them - like seriously! I gave myself the worst stomach ache for like 2 weeks b/c I was polishing off bags and bags of those things - so good, and so bad :)

  2. i'm heading your way tonight and i can't wait!

  3. mmm a Greek festival! Deliciousness. Poptails? Great idea. I need to buy those nuts- I've heard several say they're fab
