If you are new to my blog or suffer from short-term memory such as myself, you can find out why I call her Kate the Great right here, here, here, and here.
My FABULOUS 48 OF F, F, F, AND WTF!!!!
(Fun, Food, Frolicking as in Wow the FACTOR!)
On our way to the PEN's home, we drove through beautiful fall colors. We passed cranberry bogs, marshes, and every time I turned around there was water.
Out came Chili to welcome me with kisses and wags. We hit it off right away ~ it was love at first sight! Chili proceeded to lead the way in and Katie showed me around. The inside took my breath away just as much as the outside did! I felt like I had just stepped into House Beautiful, Town and Country and Architectural Digest all at the same time!
Next thing I know Katie had me sitting in the back seat while giving me colorful commentary as she drove us through the most charming picturesque towns on our way to Scarlet Oak Tavern in Hingham for lunch.
After a delicious lunch of sushi and flatbread we shopped till we dropped with our last stop being The Dollar Tree per my request. I still had a few dollars burning a hole. This is what I mean by how “they roll”. They make you feel like you’re royalty even though you're from Chicago and have a Dollar Store every 100 feet. Found some readers for My Mister. He’ll be so happy to know I was thinking of him!
We’re home just in time for me to slip on the stretchies and head downstairs for Happy Hour. More wine, more tasty hors d’oeuvres, more dance tunes and more funny stories. For tonight’s protein, I chose fish and once again The Mister shopped for the very best and freshest ingredients of the day! Dinner was out of this world divine! He prepared some mouth-watering swordfish and apple pie for dessert. After dinner, I gathered up my treasures and headed upstairs to do a little packing before I put my very happy, sleepy little head down.
#1 and #2 called during my stay making it the second best thing to them being home! They both had me laughing reminding me that these little apples didn’t fall far from the tree! The only thing missing from my fabulous 48 was Chow who was at camp. I didn’t ask.
Like I said before ~ if we had any more fun we’d have been arrested!
