176/365 – 179/365 Weekend Round-Up


(Clock wise from top left)

176/365 Thursday: Middle daughter spent the day with her friend and half-way through the day I received this picture. She did it with my approval… Most of the color has already washed out. Gotta love summer! And Tweens. :)

177/365 Friday: This week’s fabulous Friday theme and camp was disco/rockstar. I think these three nailed it. :) 

178/365 Saturday: The girls and I headed to my mom’s for the weekend. It had been a while. Too long, really. We all enjoyed the two days. 

179/375 Sunday: We stopped at my mom’s store and middle daughter found the Bobbi Brown “Elvis Duran” bronzer that we had heard about on he radio, listening to the Elvis Duran and the morning show. Our fave… 

Tomorrow the second session of camp begins and with it a small change in counsellors, as well as campers. It ought to be fun…

Have a good night you all!

P. S. Have you guys heard the exciting news that a horror movie is being filmed in my little hometown in Germany? I can’t quite believe it. But it’s true. The pictures that friends have been sending me don’t lie. It’s a strange world. 

170/365 – 175/365 Movie Night, Shades, Boating, Fruit Kebobs, Snorkeling and Nutella Brownies

Looks like I have some serious catching up to do here. 6 days without my daily posts. It’s been another fun-filled, super busy time so no complaints from me. I did work on some of these collages with the intention of posting them each day but I’ve just been too tired to take the final step.

170/365 Friday night, little one and I went to see Inside Out while big sis went to Jurassic World with her friend. We loved Inside Out and I even cried a bit at the end. Super cute movie and so apropos since we now have a 12 year old amongst us. What can go wrong, indeed? :)

171/365 Saturday started with a trip to the eye doctor for a check up for me and to pick out a new pair of shades. It’s been long overdue and I love seeing the world through clear, sharp lenses instead of the dull, scratched up ones I’ve had for the past few years. After I was finished and we ate some lunch, we met hubby’s friend for a quick ride on his boat to refuel. What a rush! The need for speed is definitely there.

172/365 Sunday. Since Saturday’s ride was so much fun, we decided to really go out boating on Sunday. Hubby’s friend, Atli, was kind enough to take us out again, let us invite some friends and after a quick, speedy ride to the ocean, we anchored the boat in Lake Boca, an area of the Intracoastal where boats anchor and people enjoy swimming, paddle boarding, floating around and generally just enjoying the beautiful weather and waters of Florida. It was an absolute blast… If you are ever in the area you can call on Atli to enjoy a fun speed boat ride on his catamaran, Top Kat. Click here for more info!!!

173/365 Monday, it was back to camp for another, adventure filled day. I took a few photos but since our campers are in them I can’t really post them here. So the recipe for this yummy chocolate dip will have to do. I made it look all pretty just for you. :)

174/365 Tuesday brought another amazing field trip. We went snorkeling with our campers and it was fun. The surf was up and we couldn’t get too close to the rocks but were still able to see some fish. I even spotted a few giant snook. First time I’ve ever seen those. Like I said, amazing!

175/365 Wednesday. Half way through the week. I decided to try out this yummy Nutella brownie recipe I’ve seen floating around on Facebook. It’s from the blog, Kirbie’s Cravings, and I think, I will stalk this one for a while. So many yummy, quick and easy recipes. These brownies got the stamp of approval of the entire family!!!

Hope you are all well! What’s new with you? Did I miss anything important? I’ll try to stop by your blogs as time allows.

169/365 Behind A Cloud

Loved how the sun was peeking out behind this massive cloud on our walk this evening. Never gets dull or boring.
