What's Up Wednesday

wAhOo!!!! wEdNeSdAy


Y’all. We made it! Today is our Friday, because tomorrow is Day #1 of our trip to the beach!!!

I cannot TELL you how needed this trip is! We have been running around like chickens with our heads cut off for months now, and to have a few days on the horizon with nothing to ‘worry about’ except for our sunburns tans…is a dream come true!

I spent last night doing all the laundry, and packing for the both of us. Craig may think we finally have sold our house and are finally moving with all of the luggage that is packed and ready to go! 🙂 I think, in the back of my mind, maybe I’m hoping we can just stay at the beach and never come back – provided we got to pick up the furs! 😉 Ah, wishful thinking!

I am probably more excited about our beach trip because of WHERE we are going than anything else. It will definitely be a stroll down memory lane! Panama City Beach was the beach to visit when I was a child. I have fond memories of visiting with my grandmother and adventuring at the Miracle Strip Amusement Park. I remember going with my parents and another set of grandparents as a child, and being amazed with the sugary white sand, and going crabbing on the beach at nighttime.

This is the definition of “the beach” to me. I have lived in Hawaii; visited Grenada, Jamaica, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, the Atlantic coast and the Pacific coast. Hands down, my favorite beach will always be the Florida Gulf.

We are looking forward to sharing our photos on our return, and who knows – While we are away, you may even get an update or two…

But if you don’t hear from us until Tuesday of next week – we are just fine…Relaxing by the waves!

Food For Thought Friday

I Could Do The Tiny Burrito Diet…


Y’all. Have you seen the tiniest hamster eating the tiniest burrito? OMG (oh my goodness) this is the cutest thing ever!

Seriously!? How precious was that?? He is even served his tiny little burrito at a teensy weensy little table! Awww!

That should be enough to melt your heart for the weekend!! 🙂

This one is a bit thought-provoking…

That, my dears, is seawater…magnified 25 times. Hmmm, you may want to try extra hard to keep your mouth closed tight the next time you’re diving head-first into the ocean… I guess both my father-in-law and husband are safe (and probably saying, “I told you there was no good reason for swimming!” right this second), but not me – When we venture to the beach in 2 months, I am going to bask in the glorious sun, salt and sea – disgusting microorganisms or not!

And finally, in honor of the Kentucky Derby coming up this weekend:

Click the image above to find out how to pick this year’s winner! And p.s. don’t expect much in the way of guidance – I could have given you the same advice. 🙂 I just didn’t want you to miss the opportunity to wear your big floppy hat and cheer on the horses!

And now to wrap things up for the day! My husband is home (happy dance – yay!), and I have some mint to muddle and a hat to buy for tomorrow’s race! 😉
