this weekend, summer officially started her sun-sprouting engine in california.

shoes came off, knees were bared, frolic ensued.

here’s a glimpse of how it went down here.

friday date nights call for silk scarves and red lips.

hunkiest and i tried out the newest, local oyster bar.

red for him, sparkly with a fancy garnish for me.

unfortunately neither of us losers eat oysters, luckily we had other options.

fish and chips for him {he at his fish…i ate his “chips”} and copper river salmon for me!! the last of the season!

if you’ve never had copper river salmon, please try it next year. it’s only available {fresh} four weeks a year. and YES, it is that good.

post seafood sweet.

i limit myself to toppings. and only the crap kind.

saturday we strolled the coast-lined streets of our azure-skied town.

sunday morning coffees and pastries with the beast.

sunday, bloody mary, sunday night.

we beckoned the naughty vamps to come out and play.

a fine finale to a grand weekend.

so far, summer’s holding the promise of sun, sultry and romp.

ching ching!

monday happy to you m’loves.
