It’s Friday- and that means PARTY!

Hey y’all- we’ve made it right back to Friday and time to check out the new and awesome posts from some of the best bloggers in the country. 

Let me tell you how much I need a distraction, y’all. So this week has been a little different. Y’all know we moved to a really, really small town. Small towns are a blessing and a curse. The blessings include a wonderfully slower pace than the city. It’s front porches and sweet tea. But, it’s also everybody knows everybody else’s business, and being a newcomer has it’s challenges. 

This week, apparently one of my neighbors got turned into the city for violations on their yard and swimming pool. The yard is has tall unmowed grass and the pool is apparently it’s own ecosystem. Guess who that neighbor was sure turned them into the City Hall?? Yep- The Mean Man and me. Guess who minds their own freaking business and has enough to worry about with making their own house inhabitable without worrying about what their neighbors have going on?? Yep- still US. When another neighbor (I’m not kidding here) told us how this was being talked about around town, I promptly took my happy hiney right down the street to set the record straight with the offending neighbor.

She was very apologetic and told me she just figured we could see her backyard from our 3rd story window (I didn’t even know there was a window on that side of the house), and her yard has looked like that for years and nobody has ever said anything about it before, so, she thought it must have been us. After assuring her that we had much bigger fish to fry that looking for code violations, she seemed satisfied that we weren’t the culprits.

Seriously? It wouldn’t have been so bad if we hadn’t been the subject of a LOT of gossip in this town (which I won’t bore you with). It just made for a rather trying week, so I’m so looking forward to getting this party started… let’s do it shall we?

My Feature for this Week

My feature pick for this week is (after my week, not surprisingly) Pineapple Vodka Limeade from Home Cooking Memories. This little beverage sounds so refreshing and delicious- it could replace that sweet tea you drink while doing your front porch sitting!

Make this Pinnacle® Pineapple Vodka Limeade recipe to enjoy this week. It's an refreshing, easy cocktail recipe that is perfect for summer.
