Love Stamps: King and Queen of Hearts (USPS)
I am head over heels loving these newly issued stamps from the Postal Service. Please, please somebody get married and send me an invitation stamped with these lovelies designed by Jeanne Greco. For now I’m just putting them on all my bills – borrrr-ing!
Trish McEvoy ‘Protective Shield’ Moisturizer SPF 15 (Nordstrom and many other stores)
For years I’ve been a drugstore Oil of Olay kind of gal, and let’s be honest, when this tube runs out I’ll probably go back to it because it’s 1/5 the price, but ooh la la, this face lotion, gifted to me as a splurge gift by my sister-in-law, makes my skin feel divine.
Sweet Tea Vodka (one brand is Jeremiah Weed)
What tastes JUST like sweet tea, but has the alcoholic content of vodka? Sweet tea vodka. Mixed with lemonade, it’s a boozy Arnold Palmer, emphasis on the boozy. I recommend inserting this into your summer drinking circuit, but be forewarned regarding how easy it is to gulp these without realizing how much alcohol you are consuming. I find it to be a bit overly sweet when mixed only with lemonade so I’m going to try mixing with part soda water next time. (Here’s a fellow blogger who blogged about it as well, and got some helpful comments.)
Confidential to my DC Peeps: Laughing Man Tavern on 13th and G NW has this on special for $4 after 7pm.
Chili Lime Grilled Corn
Credit for this recipe goes to Jessica and her husband, but it’s so delicious I can’t help but share. Grill some corn on the cob, and forget about dousing it in butter/salt/pepper. Instead, sprinkle it with a little cayenne pepper, slather on a little sour cream, and then squeeze a wedge of lime over it for the Best Corn You’ve Ever Eaten. Just trust me on this one! Also, please have extra napkins on hand.
