Saturday was crazy hectic but fun.  It was Rica's third annual 30th birthday pool party and I had a lot to do. I woke up and headed to the grocery store to get stuff to make potato salad and a cake for my father's day since I didn't get out to see my Dad on actual Father's Day.  I cooked, baked and readied a ton of stuff for Rica's big day.  Somehow we didn't leave the city until after 3 and I had a cat job to do before we left.  We also still had to go to the liquor store, beer store, Wegman's for an ice cream cake and my parent's house for a visit.  Yeesh.  The liquor store in Exton proved to me the funniest of our stops.  I was met with a overly confident hardcore gum chewing choad.  My goodness.  He must have been an Applebee's employee at some point in his life. He just gave off that vibe.  He was trying so hard to impress with me with his tequila knowledge.  It was hilarious.  He was beyond confused when I explained to him that I was making my margarita mix from scratch and then even more confused when I said they'd be of the strawberry basil variety.  No fucking joke he said to me, "You mean like oregano."  Wow! Finally we finished our traveling and made it to the party around 7.  I immediately started in on making several pitchers of margaritas and one pitcher of Basil Gin Lemonade.  All were delicious.  Michael almost immediately jumped in the pool.  I swear that man is part fish. Eventually I changed out of my party dress (yay for Super Thrift/Thrift Fair opening again!) and into my swimsuit for a dip in the hot tub.  It was a lovely day celebrating the lovely Rica and seeing friends, the margaritas didn't hurt either.
