About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Tiaras, Alligator Turtles and Tacos on the Run

A tiara is appropriate attire when a young lady dines at the castle.
Yes, we had reservations.:)

We were on our way to Florida.
And Cinderella was expecting us.

There are 2 pictures of the plane because I am showing you how brave I am.
Normally I have sweaty palms and count down the minutes until we land.
It is pretty, though, don't ya think?

We hit the ground running as we had a lot to do!
My parents were waiting at the airport for us (because they are amazing like that).
We had the Super Bowl, Downton Abbey, Alligator Turtle stories, Anthropologie, Yogurtland, Ybor City and more on our To Do List!

Don't forget the Taco Bus!
Such a unique and yummy stop!

We weren't the first ones to eat here.:)

Chicken Soft Tacos and an ice cold Coke.
Perfect for Florida weather.
(Unless all the tacos wipe out while you are driving in your sister's VW convertible.)
We had to eat on the run.  SO much to do in so little time!

Then we hit the most delicious Colombian bakery.
I wanted 2 of everything.

My girls were sweet enough to let me try their Custard Horn.
I do believe I heard the Hallelujah chorus!  It was *that* good.

Then we drove by the Colombia restaurant.
My parents love it there.

 Sheri and I have a lunch date here the next time I am in town.:)

Anthropologie was next!
It was my first visit and now I see what all the talk is about!

Eye candy all around....

The colors are easy on the eyes but not so much on the wallet.
That's what makes it special, though.

Happy letters!

These curtains are swoonlicious!

How about these knobs?  They match our tiaras.
Still swooning?

There was an old fashioned typewriter at Anthropologie that my sweetie was intrigued by.
Kit had one of those, you know.

So, my sweet Mom found the one she had at home.
This little girl happily typed away through the whole Super Bowl!

The next day held more adventures!
My Dad took the girls canoeing!

This is us before our adventure to the Taco Bus.:)
(Think there may still be a bit of lettuce on the floor.  tee hee)

We were even there for National Yogurt Day!
Yes, there is actually a day devoted to frozen yogurt.
Yogurtland gave away all you wanted- with toppings!
Crazy- in a very, very good way.

Next stop, the Gaylord Palms Hotel!
