Pink Saturday - Blame it on the Pink Drink

Pink Saturday - Beverly, at the blog "How Sweet the Sound" hosts Pink Saturday. Let the color pink inspire you!

Well, I was going to work on my Pink Saturday post Friday night, but instead I went out for Happy Hour. They were repaving the streets around my workplace, and at rush hour traffic was a nightmare. My co-worker came into my office at about 5:45 and said - "I don't know what you'd think about this, but....traffic is awful. Would you like to go somewhere for a Happy Hour drink?"

Just a short walk from where we work is a beach front hotel. Although it's a "luxury" hotel, the economy is hitting them hard - so they recently started a Happy Hour with $5 drinks and nibblies from 5 pm to 7 pm.

We headed down there and enjoyed a window seat looking out at the beach. We had fried calamari and peel-and-eat shrimp and a couple of drinks. Pink drinks.

We sipped and we nibbled and we giggled and we gossiped and we watched the sunset. Then we called for the check, paid, and went to the ladies' room.


Can you believe this is how they present the toilet paper? What a classy joint!


Then we went out onto the ocean walk. Here is what it looks like when the sun is setting on a bright April evening. We headed back up the hill to our employee parking lot. It was 7:00 p.m. The traffic had died down, some.

"We ought to do this next week!" we said to each other, and headed for home.

And that's why I don't have a good Pink Saturday post.

This sounds like it should be a weekly thing for the gals. Why sit in traffic if you can enjoy great company and a wonderful view, relax, sit and talk. It all sounds good to me, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Wow!
How fancy is that toilet paper? I wonder if that would stop my dog from trying to steal the toilet paper and chew it up?
Happy Pink Saturday, it looks like you had a great evening.

It's a very pretty pink drink. That hotel looks familiar, but it's been years since I've been to LA.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Great goodies you're sharing! Don't you just ♥ Pink Saturday? This is the one day that I get to totally indulge myself, get all girlie, drink tea with cream, and share time with friends on the internet. Your blog post this week was wonderful...as usual!

Went out to dinner with friends, so I'm a little late, but better late than never, right? I wish you a Sunday filled with family, l♥ve, sunshine and peace.

Thank you so much for stopping by for my first Pink Saturday. I love the toilet paper. I wonder how crazy my hubby would think I was if I did that to mine!
