I'll look back on this and smile because it was life and I decided to live it

I know, I know, somebody's been a really bad blogger and that somebody is me. I'm here, I have no fear, I'm ready to rock. To be honest I have absolutely no excuse other than I plain didn't want to write anything. Inspiration was lacking to put thoughts outside my head and that's pretty much it.

I love the feeling I have coming into today's post; I am eager and anxiously excited to get some words down and share the ton of pics I have that will aid in recapping where I've been. Since we last chatted, tons of fun life moments commenced so in no particular order:

My good friend Ronda, her sweet fur gal Tessa and I attended the Food Truck Bazaar in Avalon Park. This was amazing; the weather was clear and sunny, the food choices were plentiful and delectable:


I even managed to share the above photographed cupcake with Hunter when I got home instead of scarfing it down myself :)

We helped my dad celebrate another year of life and managed to completely throw him off and surprise him with not only our presence but a family birthday party. My sister said he was definitely getting antsy because no one was calling or texting early in the morning to wish him well. Ha, gotcha! As my father put it, he "couldn't have been more surprised to wake up with his head sewn to the carpet." (Griswold Christmas Vacation jokes all year long with this bunch, folks).

Mom's day! Sent cards to the lovely lady moms in our life; 19 people Hunter and I have to be thankful for!


My mom came to spend the weekend with us. Among other things, we enjoyed the Winter Park Farmer's Market, brunched with some of Hunter's side of our family (including our handsome squishy nephew Connor/Nonner), and enjoyed Goodfellas while feasting on some Macaroni Grill takeout. All around it was a splendid good time!


Oh and picked up this fancy little number for mi mama and had thoughts of keeping it for myself she was thrilled with it:


I spent time with more of the ones I love like my other Connor nephew:

This child is everything that is good in the world <3
I love my Tori so, so much! We went to see Modest Mouse and let me tell you, they are one of THE best live performances I have witnessed. I can say with complete confidence we had a really good time. I recommend seeing them any chance you get!

Fired up the grill a bit and enjoyed all the summer time veggies that are rapidly becoming available:


I've been quite diligent to participate in some #tbt fun and love scouting out the winning tickets each Thursday:


And speaking of scouting out winners in life, what would any a recap post be without my fur baby dogters. These two, I mean really? As mean nana (my mom) likes to say, "This is all they do. All. Day. Long. This is it."


Well, that is all for this catch up sesh. To surmise, it's been a fun month of May; productive in living and full of good times. I'm thankful for everything I've been able to share today and look forward to getting back to this space. Thank you for reading and keeping up with me!


Til we meet again,

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!

Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink -Lilly Pulitzer

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
