And Now A Quick Word About Bacon

Mac and I are going to Portland in a few months and the first thing I thought of was Voodoo. Mac, like most men I know, loves bacon and I could think of no better way to share a favorite food in a favorite city than Voodoo’s Maple Bacon Bar! Yep, you heard right. Maple doughnut with strips of crispy, happy bacon! Which of course inspired Lisa & Helios’ maple bacon ice cream. I believe it was Mike who decided to roll the bacon in brown sugar before adding it to the ice cream, great idea. If you love bacon or have someone if your life who does, I highly recommend you try one of these ideas at home. Oh, and about the last picture … I’m sure you can figure it out.

Yarn Bombers

How cool is this? Looks like yarn is not just for tea cozies and winter scarves, I may learn how to crochet just so I can be a yarn bomber. Keep your eyes open for this crochet graffiti. If you're in the LA area check out the bear in front of the Griffith Observatory, crocheted to make you smile. Here are a few cool ones I found...

Let's Get Together With A Glass of Schlitz

Drinking an ice cold beer this evening I came across this old Schlitz commercial. Time to grab our friends, pomade our hair, and take out our oversized frosty mugs … simply because it tastes so good!

Real gusto in a great light beer …

High Class Pool Party

It's happening, the 80 degree weekends that mean summer is coming. Weekends full of barbecues, cold beer, and red skin. Times when you want to hit the beach...

Sit by the pool...

Or in some cases, create your own...

Just give him a truck bed, black plastic, a hose, and Mr. Fleming has his own way to cool off.

Hymn to Friday

I hear this song driving home every Friday and I don't think anyone could have put it better.  Thank you Oscar Brown Jr., praise be to Friday!

Beer Can Fire Starter

Who needs a starter fire log when you have half a beer can, oil, and gasoline?  Ok, so maybe not really a "safety first" idea but I don't recall seeing an after school special on it either. 

Asking for disaster?  I'm amazed how often he does this.

Cheese, Cheese, Cheese!

One of Mac's finds this weekend was this amazing mid century cheese board ...

Which of course,  I took as a sign to go see my favorite cheesemonger Alex and spend too much money on cheese.  But really, do yourself a favor and try this camembert!

Honey, dark chocolate, pears, rosemary bread, and of course cheese!

Sunny day, friends, white wine, and cheese, perfection.

I was thinking today about how your surroundings reflect your personality.  My place is a tiny studio with old carpeting,old books, and a fridge full of cheese(priorities?) Mac, well say what you want but the guy has got style...

Along Came You

If you had told me that I would meet my future boyfriend through a girl I would meet on a plane I (well probably everyone) would have thought you were crazy. But that's how Mac happened into my life. Half way through a flight to Portland in 2009 Abbey, my now dear friend, said, "You have to meet my friend Mac." And I did, living proof that romance can evolve from checked baggage and a bag of peanuts.

Meet Mac Fleming

There are some people you can’t help but look at… and some people you can’t help but emulate… and some people that remind you of your first beat up car, cheap beer, driveways covered with oil, faded record covers, and plaid shirts… meet Mac Fleming so nostalgically cool you can’t help but love him
