Ode to a Long Weekend!

Morning All! 

Since I've been too busy lately to blog about my home, and so much of my summer includes trips up north, I thought it only fitting that I write a post dedicated to this time away from the home.

Listed below are my must-have items for the ultimate cottage getaway...

The Perfect Weekender Bag

Everyone needs a bag big enough to hold clothing for any variety of crazy weather that can hit you over the course of three days.

My Cynthia Rowley gem here holds everything I need--bathing suits, a towel, sarong, sweater, sleep-mask, K-Way, flip flops, runners, sweats, sunscreen, bug spray, book, gossip mag, hat, sheets, phone charger... you name it, I've packed it.

Best of all I bought it on sale at Winners for just $49.99! Totally worth it.

The Go-To Meal Contribution

This summer I've signed us up for breakfast duty at every cottage we've been to.

Due to their awesome make-ahead quality and popularity with most crowds, I've learned to make some killer quiches, if I do say so myself!

Made of store-bought crusts (don't you judge me), the usual eggs, milk, and spices, then topped with shredded Tex-Mex cheese, I also fill them with diced pimento pepper, and either shopped broccoli or zucchini ribbons.

Serve these bad boys with toasted English Muffins, bacon, tomato slices with fresh basil, and huge chunks of juicy pineapple.


The Things People May Thank You for Later

  • Coffee--because you just can't gamble on others remembering it
  • Classic crowd-pleasing movies in case it rains--I'm prone to Jaws and Meatballs myself
  • Gravol and/or Tylenol--for those who think s'more vodka is just as good as the real deal around a bonfire
  • Any type of can opener/corkscrew 

So there you have it! If you've been wondering what I've been up to lately, mystery solved.

Besides working and the odd day by the pool, I've been packing and unpacking this stuff over and over again to trek up north.

And I wouldn't have it any other way!

Wishing you all a safe and fun-filled long weekend!
