Maybe I should have upgraded to a pool view for $30 a night.
I rarely go anywhere without my camera…until now. I forgot my camera and, therefore, am not able to share photos of the week…what kind of blogger forgets her camera?

BTW, my presentation was on Behavioral Interviewing…fascinating stuff.
Despite my inability to photo-document my (scant) escapades, I had several days of learning and networking with industry peers including a wonderful dinner at a martini bar where I enjoyed a Lemon Drop Martini. What a perfect topic for a post, thought she.
Lemon Drop Martini
1 1/2 shots of vodka – I like Grey Goose
1/2 shot triple sec
1 teaspoon confectioners sugar
1 shot of freshly squeezed lemon juice – about the juice of one medium lemon
Granulated sugar for the rim of the martini glass
Mixing The Lemon Drop Martini
Pour the vodka, triple sec, sugar and lemon juice into an ice-filled shaker. I used the new doggie shaker I got for Mother’s Day. Shake sufficiently to fully dissolve the sugar.
To serve your Lemon Drop Martini, choose a clear martini glass, glaze the rim with juice from a slice of lemon and dip the rim in granulated sugar, pour the martini and garnish with a slice of lemon.
Beware...these go down easy! You've been warned.
