Spring WeekendsA few weekends ago, while you could still feel a chill in the air at night, I got together with some friends to say hello to Spring and goodbye to a dear friend. He’s now getting settled in his new life in California, and I’m just getting around to sharing our wonderful backyard barbecue.

The party doubled as both a going away party and a housewarming party for our friends who just bought their first home–in downtown Norcross, right next door to mom (and grandma to their little one). They’re building a little family compound, and we broke it in with beer, games and a fire in the fire pit.

Oh, and beer can chicken. Lots of beer can chicken. (More on that tomorrow!)

Danger Zone Koozie

I’m a wee bit obsessed with beer koozies. It’s my go-to souvenir to bring home from vacation, and I am known to always have one in my purse, and in my car, and in my desk drawer at work. (Hey, things happen! I like to be ready.) This is my current favorite: The Danger Zone koozie from Rowdy Gentleman.
