Weekend Real Estate Stalking

I love today's Weekend Real Estate Stalking Mediterranean colonial in Weston, Ct.  It is so majestic looking.  The open spaces, and high ceilings make it perfect for entertaining.  The stone patio area is an excellent example of bringing the indoors out, to make a comfortable outdoor living area.  Plus just steps away from the manicured yard are 42!!! miles of incredible hiking trails!!  Lastly, I had to add one of my favorite parts of this home...the theater...FABULOUS!!!  For more information, Contact Christine Oleynick...

We have a VERY LIMITED group of seats for Hadestown, 2019 BEST MUSICAL on October 15th at 7:00pm.  The tickets are in the Mezzanine and they are $180 each.  I know this is higher than we usually go but honestly this is such a good deal, since I requested these seats and with the Tony award, the ticket prices have skyrocketed...Email me to save your spot...these are going to go FAST!!!!

Winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical!
Welcome to Hadestown, where a song can change your fate. This acclaimed new musical by celebrated singer-songwriter Ana├»s Mitchell and innovative director Rachel Chavkin (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) is a love story for today… and always.

Hadestown intertwines two mythic tales — that of young dreamers Orpheus and Eurydice, and that of King Hades and his wife Persephone — as it invites you on a hell-raising journey to the underworld and back. Mitchell’s beguiling melodies and Chavkin’s poetic imagination pit industry against nature, doubt against faith, and fear against love. Performed by a vibrant ensemble of actors, dancers and singers, Hadestown is a haunting and hopeful theatrical experience that grabs you and never lets go.

Fortina At Home

One of our favorite restaurants, Fortina is now offering At Home meal kits.  East kit contains a salad, pasta and dessert.  You can order a meal for 2 or 4 people and you can call any Fortina location within 24 hours in advance to order (soon they will be available to ship nationwide!!!!).  I am not really great with At Home meal kits but I decided to take the plunge with this one since we are HUGE Fortina fans.  The recipes/directions were so easy to follow.  All of the ingredients were fresh and laid out exactly for each step.  And OMG did everything smell sooooo good when I was preparing it.  Our kit contained, arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette dressing, baked ziti with Fortina's homemade herbed ricotta and Nutella cannolis for dessert.  Everything was so simple to prepare and so delicious. I cannot wait to try another!!!  Click HERE to view the full Fortina At Home menu!!!

The pick up was super quick!!  Everything was waiting for us!!

Getting ready to prepare the salad....

Next up... the pasta...

Lastly the DESSERT!!!!!

Voila!!!!!!  Bon Appetit!!!!

Book Club Monday

Today's Book Club Monday Choice is Park Ave Summer by Renee Rosen.  I knew I had to read it when the description said where Mad Men meets The Devil Wears Prada.  Here is the story:

New York City is filled with opportunities for single girls like Alice Weiss, who leaves her small Midwestern town to chase her big-city dreams and unexpectedly lands a job working for the first female editor in chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, Helen Gurley Brown.

For Alice, who wants to be a photographer, it seems like the perfect foot in the door, but nothing could have prepared her for the world she enters. Editors and writers resign on the spot, refusing to work for the woman who wrote the scandalous bestseller Sex and the Single Girl, and confidential memos, article ideas, and cover designs keep finding their way into the wrong hands. When someone tries to pull Alice into a scheme to sabotage her boss, she is more determined than ever to help Helen succeed.
While pressure mounts at the magazine, Alice struggles not to lose sight of her own dreams as she’s swept up into a glamorous world of five-star dinners, lavish parties, and men who are certainly no good. Because if Helen Gurley Brown has taught her anything, it’s that a woman can demand to have it all. - Amazon.com
