Saturday in a nut crabshell

Saturday was one of those days that started out great, but ended up that much better. Being a full-time everything right now isn't really conducive to those days, so when they come around I just sit back, let the goodness roll and try to soak it all in.

It all started with a trip to the mailbox on the way home from Friday night activities. I adore surprises, and Mr. Willi is really outdoing himself lately (see Date Night).

US Open, here we come!


Breakfast: Way to a man's heart/way to say thank you for being awesome— is definitely through his stomach.


Who knew bread, egg whites, vanilla and cinnamon could be so ridiculously tasty together?



Can't forget the bacon— thick cut, applewood. We don't play.


What a delicious way to start the day.


After breakfast Amwilli was off to the races (aka a little league tourney), and a little while later I was off to spend the evening with Amy, Minta and several unfortunate crustaceans.

Nothing says Summer in the DC area like fresh steamed crabs; the stuffed-to-the-gills paper bag with pooled steam bubbles and one liiiitle claw sticking out just builds the anticipation for the feast yet to come.


But first, the essentials: Newspaper ☑


Awesome side dishes? ☑☑




Refreshments? ☑☑☑


Time to feast!



They didn't stand a chance.




All that was left. Sorry little dude.


Highlights: EVERYTHING

Highest Light: Fantastic nights with best friends make my heart sing. Now, let's make this Miami trip happen! ♡♡♡

Lowlights: see above.


I hope everyone is having a fabulous Fourth of July weekend!
