Fill in Fun and some snapshots {Snapshot Sunday 10/18/2014}

October 17, 2014

It’s Friday. It’s Saturday night. It was another glorious day here in South Florida. It’s just me and my two oldest home for the weekend. The hubby took little one for their father-daughter weekend trip to New York. The trip she’s been waiting for forever. It was finally her turn and from what I hear, she’s loving it so far!
And guess, who they are visiting?
Our hostess with the mostest, Hilary, that’s who. So how I can I not join her this fine Friday Saturday??? 🙂

You know the deal, right? Four statements, four blanks. We answer them and link up. It’s oodles of fun!

The statements:

1. What would be your____?
2. Certainly a ____ will _____
3. A real ___ is _____ than____
4. Joining a ____ makes me_____

My answers:

1. What would be your perfect day?
2. Certainly a gorgeous weekend will be more
than welcome
.

3. A real smile is much warmer than a fake one.
4. Joining a big group of people at events makes me want to break out in hives.

Feeling Beachie
And now a few snapshots from the last few days. The weather has been glorious around these parts and we’ve been enjoying cloudless, blue skies for days and days. Such a welcome relief after all the rain we’ve had for months and months.

In my quest to find all things pumpkin I ran across this delicious pumpkin pie ice cream from Publix.

Trador Joe’s to the rescue! I’ve been looking for this pumpkin spice rooibus tea for weeks now. Usually The Fresh Market by our house carries it but for some reason, so far, it hasn’t been on the shelves. I was so excited when I found this today at Trader Joe’s and already enjoyed two cups of it tonight.

And this, oh don’t get me started on this goodness. Pumpkin mochi ice cream, the best thing ever. Thanks once again, to Trader Joe’s. Do you detect  a them yet? It’s my new favorite store. 🙂

Middle and I went to a Frozen themed birthday party today and she got a picture with Elsa and Anna to show little one, who couldn’t come since she’s busy in the big apple! 🙂

Mother-daughter selfie. Middle and I spent most of the day together – just the two of us. After the party we went to dinner at our favorite Vietnamese place for some pho and then stopped at Trader Joe’s for some goodies.

And to finish off the day, we raced the sun to the park to catch the sunset. We didn’t quite make the actual moment but still enjoyed a few quiet moments sitting on a blanket by the lake.

The last picture, one last look, before we left!

Hope everyone has a great week!

    Ooh. Sounds like a wonderful day! I especially liked the Pho and lake part!

      Oh yes, the pho was phenomenal! And I liked the sunset at the lake the most too.

    A perfect day right now, is just a day out to do ….. whatever. No errands. I can grab a coffee and read in cafe. I could browse stores. I could go for a walk. Just no agenda.
    I hope daddy and daughter have a wonderful trip!
    that last pic – the sunset! whoa!

      Yeah, that sounds about perfect to me too, Leslie. I think, for me though, I would need to go somewhere other than home to fully relax. At home, I cannot sit still, there is always something to do!

    You and your daughter look so much alike in that photo! It’s uncanny!!
    That pumpkin tea…ummmmmm…I NEED.

      You are the second one that said that about the two of us. I think she looks more like her dad. But thanks! 🙂 And that tea, totally devine. Do you have Fresh Market in Canada?

    No surprise to me that you love Trader Joe’s – so do I! Got to try that pumpkin icecream even though I am not a big ice cream fan, but hubby is. 🙂
