Trader Joe's Lemon Bars

We bought these wonderful lemon bars from Trader Joe's on impulse:

There are 12 in a box, and they would make a great dessert for if you have company.
You take them out of the box and let them thaw.

And then their tart deliciousness is ready to be eaten.

Dinner - Sushi at a New Place

What I ate for dinner:

Alaskan Roll and Tempura Roll

Overcast Beach Weekend

We had an overnight in Fire Island this weekend.  The weather was overcast and windy on the beach.  Despite not getting to enjoy some heat, the beauty and the power of the ocean is always appreciated.

Recent Randomness

I have been pretty bad about blogging lately; so here's some random recent items:

Pretty breakfast platter - poppy seed bagel, sunnyside up eggs, salmon, swiss cheese, and avocado.
We got a second t.v. for the bedroom and a Roku box; so now I can watch t.v. in bed with my grays.  I highly recommend the Roku!
I tried on a pair of TOMS - not for me.
My tabby gave me some serious face.
I got a gold and coral mani-pedi (Essie's Shifting Power and California Coral)
This is what I have to leave most mornings when I go to work.

Michigan Family Vacation

We were in Michigan all last week with my family, and it was so much fun!  There were over 20 of us in one house, including siblings, in-laws, and tons of little nieces and nephews.  We celebrated a couple of birthdays and the 4th of July together.

In Indiana, we stopped by a fireworks store to stock up for the 4th.

Our little piece on beach on Lake Michigan

Blue Moon Ice Cream

The Lake!

View from our rental... gorgeous.

Our firepit, which was put to use (aka s'mores making)
I love my family so much and feel blessed to enjoy who they are now that we're all adults.  I highly recommend Lake Michigan for a big family vacation that's relaxed and fun.

Governors Ball NYC Food 2014

We ate so much good food at the Governors Ball.  My only complaint was the beer... Foster's or Bud Lite...I'll take... neither.
Pommes Frites Cheese Fries
Momofuku Milk Bar crack pie, compost cookie, and cornflake/marshmallow cookie.

Stack Wine... before they ran out by day two!!!!!  Disaster.
Luke's Lobster Roll
Beecher's Mac & Cheese
Mexican Corn
Carl's Chicken Cheesesteak with the works

Governors Ball NYC 2014

Here are a few photos from this past weekend.  We had a great time, but I have to say three days is a long time and my ears are still ringing from Saturday's Strokes concert.

Damon Albarn concert was one of my favorites.
The weather was gorgeous!
It was so hot people had to hide out in the shade.

On the second day, there was a huge line to get in/we waited 40 minutes.
The third day was a little overcast, but nice.
I highly recommend cheap closed toed shoes, because your feet will be filthy and people will step on them.
We walked across the RFK Bridge to and from 125th Street.  It was the fastest way off of Randall's Island people who bought ferry tickets waited forever.
