Working for the weekend...

This week has been completely exhausting. Between trying to finish painting all the trim in my home, rearranging the furniture layout of the living room daily, and helping dear SIL get everything ready for the big move I'm tired!

To top things off this morning my laptop decided not work anymore. Jon figured out that it just needs a new power cord, but I think it was trying to send me a message and tell me I need to relax for a bit.

I'm counting down the days for the start of this weekend, because lucky gal that I am I was invited out east! Long Island splits into a fork out east and in January I was invited to stay on the South fork that being the Hampton's. This weekend we are going to the North fork and I couldn't be happier. It's a bit more low key and not as Real Housewives of NY like the Hampton's.

I look forward to stopping at some farm stands on the way there:

I will also be making Jon stop at every yard sale that I spot:

In addition to all that I'll have to stop at Briermere Farms and pick up some of their famous pies for my host and hostess.

I also need to make a pit stop at one of the many local vineyards and stop at Duck Walk and pick up some of their yummy blueberry port along with doing my favorite thing at a vineyard. No, it's not tasting the wine, but showing some of the vineyards dogs some love.

No trip out east would be complete without a stop at Scoops our favorite ice cream shop that sells solely Hershey's ice cream. I'll take a cone of Denali Moose Tracks and Jon love Chocolate Cherry Cordial.We are completed serious about this ice cream and even bring a cooler with us so that we can bring some pints home with us!

When we finally arrive at our destination it will be filled with family, friends and of course tons of food and entertainment.

The beach is only a start boat ride away and lucky for us there is a dock in the backyard with a boat ready to go, or we could kayak there if we like, or even take one of the Vespa's they have around for going into town.

I just might have to recreate this picture:

I promise to take loads of pictures. I'm bringing my Nikon D60 that I have yet to learn how to use so I'll be reading up on the manual on the drive out there. I hope to come back refreshed and recharged.

I'm hoping to have my business site launched at some point in August so it's go time! I of course switched my mind again with business cards a couple of weeks ago, got new colors for the logo, got a logo, got a slogan, working with two lovely web designers to help me with a blog revamp (I'm switching over to word press!) and the business site. House is 90% ready for photo shoot and I'm one unit away from finishing my schooling. Yay! It's all happening and I'm exhausted.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend! I'll try to post something tomorrow, but I'm not sure if it will happen. We are moving SIL in tonight and tomorrow. So I'll be busy, busy.

Do you have any fun plans for this weekend? Please share?

Jeesh... reading that just made me want to crawl back into bed! Girl, slow down!! :) Enjoy yourself and all of your relaxing activities - and please have a scoop of Moose Tracks for me [it's my all time favorite]. Can't wait to see the photos and hear your opinion on your new Nikon. Can we say jealous much? I need a new camera desperately. :)

No solid plans over at NE Girl... we're just playing it by ear and seeing how things go. As you aren't too far away, you know how the weather has been. If it doesn't stop raining, I am planning on snuggling in bed with movies all weekend. :)

Have a great time!
