My daughter is 11 and she loves to dress up but there are two things I’ve been very firm about no black nail polish and no heels. Well we were at Old Navy and she was trying to find a dress to wear for Easter Sunday when she saw these shoes. They were 40% off and even though she knew how firm I was on heels but managed to talk me into them because they were boots not just heels. I gave in and let her have them. I am still firm on the nail polish.
Sometimes it be like that when I’m not here as much as I should be and I shouldn’t do anymore of these damn challenges because it pisses me off. I have a bunch of catch up blogs I’m working on just bear with me. I’ll be back in action.
🖤 I suck at updating my blog this month. I am having so much going on and these damn challenges I signed up for. I know I said it in the last update and I am saying it again. I am done with these things after this month.
🖤 Still not dieting. I am drinking more water which is good.
🖤 No sodas which is really hard when we go are I don’t typically like the lemonade and other drinks from the fountain but I am drinking more water.
🖤 Our vacation was wonderful even with a few hiccups. ( I am posting about it soon.)
This doesn’t take many words I’ve expressed so many times how much this man means to me and if you didn’t know he is the greatest person in the world and every reason I’m alive. I think this is one who haven’t seen yet.
I know almost all of my pictures involve us going on vacation but the more you travel you gain knowledge and experience. We went to Rock City Enchanted Lights in Chattanooga, Tennessee and my daughter wanted one of those glow sticks and I told her I’m not paying $5 for a stick, but then they changed the game and put Cotton Candy on it. Once you put something like Cotton Candy on it then it doesn’t count as a souvenir. This is probably again the closest you will get to actually seeing her. She had so much fun and the stick takes batteries so it isn’t just a one time use. So it’s a win win for everyone!!
We went to Chattanooga recently (I promise that there will be a post about it soon!!) and while we were there I took way too many pictures as always, but I can’t get enough of this view. It is beautiful. We were at Ruby Falls on top of the tower. You get a good view of the mountains, Tennessee River and downtown Chattanooga. It is so peaceful like ocean waves it can clear your head and think better places like this even if I am terrified of heights.
My favorite about holidays is P E P P E R M I N T! I love peppermint way too much. It is only really popular during the holiday season so I stock up when I can. Peppermint bark is another favorite of mine. Anything sweet I want during the holidays involves peppermint in some way. I think if everything had a little mint in it the world would be a better place. These are Hershey’s holiday peppermint bark bells. They are really addicting and every time I go to dollar general I normally buy 2 or 3 at a time falsely believing that they will last awhile (we are luck for 2 hours). This is my favorite dessert (well one of them).
I love this picture. I took it when we were at Tybee Island in June. It was the first vacation we took this year and saying it was much needed is an understatement. My husband ended up in Savannah for training with the city and we stayed in a haunted Inn in downtown Savannah which was pretty cool. We’ve actually had an amazing year this year as I dig through pictures of all the places we’ve been and the things we’ve done.
We always walk through Midtown to get to Piedmont Park for the AFSP walk and every year we pass by the same Irish Pub and say we are going to stop there but never do for some reason but this year we were finally able to. Fado’s is amazing and if you have a chance to stop in I definitely recommend it. You can never beat a good burger and theirs is one of the best I’ve ever had. I love when burgers are served like this. You know they are going to be delicious. I think this will be our new tradition. 🖤
