Weekend Wrap Up Memorial Day

This Weekend Wrap Up was full of holidays, not only was it Memorial Day but also my youngest son’s birthday!

First on Friday I went to a movie with my oldest son and I brought my Starbucks popcorn and my new limited edition cold cup (free Frappuccino with purchase till May 30th!) to enjoy.


Then on Saturday I was reading through Pascal Rigo’s cookbook again and decided to try and make his Niçoise salad. I took my Starbucks Evenings Seasonal Vegetable and Chipotle Hummus Dip to go and went to work Making It Yours…

There were only a couple of items missing, the olives and anchovies, but everything else was amazing and I’m going to be making this salad again without a doubt!


Then on Sunday it was my youngest son’s birthday so I made a big breakfast for the boys…


This special breakfast looked so good and the boys loved it but my Starbucks breakfast wasn’t too far off, just look at the lovely options I got to enjoy too… La Boulange Les Macarons and shortbreads, fruit cup and eggs from Evolution Fresh.


Then we opened presents and I’d been waiting to give my Starbucks present to my little one which he eagerly put on after he opened it. He definitely is a partner in the making…


Monday was Memorial Day and I redesigned a reusable cup with a custom flag design #RememberHonorFreedom!


Later that afternoon my oldest and I decided to attend a good friends premier at the SIFF Fly Film Fest. All the films were great, the filmmakers did a fantastic job and of course we loved
Two Friends the best… great job Lulu, and to all the talent that SIFF has compiled for their 2013 festival!


Afterwards we enjoyed a relaxing dinner at the Olive Way Starbucks Evenings. My oldest enjoyed the Bacon-Wrapped Dates with Balsamic Glaze for the first time, he loved them!  Mommy went with her favorite, the Blue Brie Cheese plate with Toasted Walnut Cranberry Bread and Fig Preserves… and a Stella Artois.


We hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend, we sure did!

Next up is the final Make It Yours May, a garden party with friends and my birthday party!

Oh, and I’m HALF WAY THROUGH this year-long challenge in 3 days!

  1. Some years ago, we were in vacations in the South of France with my wife and our 2 daughters, and we ate qui often Salade Niçoise on a GREAT terrasse…With also some good Rosé wine.
