No bridge...

I realized I don't think I've ever really been anywhere that isn't connected to a large piece of land before. We went to Dog Island last weekend for a friends birthday, it's off the coast of Carrabelle, I had been fishing right off of it before but I had never actually set foot on the island before. We took a ferry over on Friday and were so lucky to stay in a gorgeous house on the bay side. It was absolutely amazing, so much wildlife, shells and lack of noise except the waves. It reminded me of going to St. George island as a child, almost untouched by people. We saw a baby stingray and baby horseshoe crabs and shells and shells and shells. I am so happy I finally got to go, it was out of this world :)

They tell me I like seafood...

Ugh... ok so there was lots of "funny..haha" kinda stuff on here, but the formatting wasn't cooperating for me (technology hates me, I've no idea why I have a blog)... so we'll go simple... 1.) Boss Oyster's in Apalachicola is one of my FAVORITE seafood places in the whole world... 2.) FourSquare tells me I love seafood... 3.) You need to go here. Put it on your bucket list. Now. 4.) "Gur, Go...Hugh difference kids, HUGE!! never mind, that's not relevant in any sort of way and you only get it if you believe in Pirates of the Caribbean...

Anywhoo.. here's some pictures!!

The sign...

The view :)

This is Hank...
We love Hank so much...
...we ate him and all of his friends :)
We also ate some of his distantly related cousins.
I don't know what's up with me and weird extended family relations today...I'm in a good mood, I had blueberry waffles at a ridiculously early hour this morning, I cleaned out my dogs ears...awkward... and I'm about to go to work :)


P.S. I just realized I forgot to sign my last blog post, oh no!! haha

We need some theme music...

Duh nah nah nah nah naaaaaah! I dunno what kind of theme music exactly...Turbo the Basset looks disgruntled...he's mot much of a beach man...and Tank looks nervous, but he always looks nervous. Ryan, well...Ryan always looks like Superman to me, I can't help it :) On second thought...maybe Superman's estranged cousin who somehow got left on the side of the road to be raised by some "less than super classy but still super nice when they invite you over to their trailer to eat raccoon" kind of people...I dunno, maybe it's just me...and the cut off sleeves haha!

It's been almost two years since I got to go to St. George Island...and the last time I went it was nasty, rainy weather and I didn't even set foot on the beach, so that doesn't count really...

When I was little my grandparents built a house down here and I spent a ton of time at the beach...but as it seems to be with growing up and all, I haven't had much free time to spend here. It's one of my favorite places in the whole world, Ryan's too :) We were lucky enough to make a trip down here on Sunday...with three dogs (feel accomplished much? yes we do...) haha anyways it was absolutely wonderful, we had a blast. The weather was perfect, the water was crystal clear, which is pretty uncommon at St. George, but it hasn't rained much in the past month so it was extra pretty. We got to see dolphins too!

Podophobics...look away

Is it weird that I've put up not one but two pictures with my feet in them in the past week?
It was just a coincidence, I promise...

This is the new nail polish I got today...I almost went with a turquoisey/green, but that's just not's Cookie all day long...but not me...I just can't turn down purple...any shade, any form, anywhere...
In fact in my room at my old house I had PURPLE the old Cola Cave...

Along with puppy dogs :) I don't think if I was given the opportunity I would paint my walls the exact same color...but maybe like a Wisteria color...that's my favorite...

We are Siamese if you please...

We are Siamese if you don't please...because you can also get Thai here.

Siam Sushi in the Lake Ella shopping center next to Publix is delicious! This was an end piece of their veggie roll, too beautiful to eat! Their Pad Thai is amazing, their soup is beyond words and I also have had a glass noodle dish with vegetables which was excellent...but I can't remember the name of it! I totally miss Hopkins Eatery being at this location but they have done a great job, if you haven't checked it out you should!!



Cookie and I were on our way back from a dear friends memorial service in Blountstown when we stopped at Crow's gat station...

This rocked my socks!

The story the clerk told about the signs origin was perfectly fitting to the sign itself.
Apparently one of the usual delivery drivers was bringing in his last order to the station and wasn't going to be coming by regularly anymore. He took the standard "Boiled Eggs" sign down without a word, went to his truck and returned with this gem..."Boneless Chicken"
"There." said the delivery driver "Now you'll sell more eggs."

I adore North Florida...there's no other place like it.



I sometimes forget my own look for the beautiful, the wonderful, the serene moments in every day. The times when I need to look for these tiny bits of peace are often the times it is most difficult to find them. To be able to see a moment for what it really is...that is priceless to me. Each time I find myself seeing beauty in a grossly messed up makes me happy, but at the same time it makes me sad to know I have missed many beautiful moments because I had my blinders on, my mind filled with worries and regrets, consumed by the small stuff I should learn to let go of. It is a remarkably amazing place we are blessed to live in :)

See the beauty...


Ps... The awesomeness of a hammock can never be overrated...

I'm so excited...

I've passed a lot of the milestones that make me a real "grownup."
Graduating college...check
Paying rent and utilities...check
Working my butt off...check

But today is one of my favorites :)
I got a brand new washer and dryer!!!! And I'm just bursting at the seams with joy!!!
Clean clothes?!?! What?!?! Whenever I want?!?! Double what?!?!?

I guess I'm still on the outskirts of real "grownuphood" though because mommy and daddy bought them for me... Haha!

Check it out!!!

Daisy Do...

I needed to come up with some cheap/free center pieces for our tables in the banquet room at work...and I think I've found my solution :) I have tons of clear glass bottles and vases...those plus a bouquet of fresh flowers, some little tea lights and the occasional wine bottle...and I've done it! I can't wait to actually dress up the room for an event and take some pictures! I love it when the creativity seems to come shooting out of your finger tips. There really isn't much like it in this world that I could compare the feeling's like the stars align to help you with your art. Incredible.


Perfect part of a perfect day...


These pictures are a little darker than I would like, but these lanterns were hanging under the pavilion at Shell Point the other night and they looked too cool :)
I have fallen head over heels in love with my Iphone 4 camera, it takes some awesome pictures and I am way too lazy to carry around my nice camera (so what...and the battery is never's not my fault I swear)

I hope you'e enjoying all of the photography, cause I'm loving it!


Shell Point :)

This is from last weekend when Cookie and I drank all over the county...and then some.

I am so happy it's finally getting warmer! I laid by the pool at momma's while I did some laundry today...great way to start off a vacation...and it's definitely the beach tomorrow! Carrabelle here I come :)

Mini me?

Haha! Guinness to start the night...5 days of vacation, here I come!
Cola :)

Lovely evening...

I had a TERRIBLE day... The kind that makes you want to crawl back into bed and hide from the world.

But it's better now :)

Adventuring in the county...

I'm a sucker for anything antique...this fishing lure was amazing. The way that it has aged

This was an awesome pair of oooooooold glasses that Cookie has at her them :)

I took this picture while we waited for 45 minutes for breakfast at the Huddle House... We ate Beef O Brady's after that epic breakfast failure!

I hope you've enjoyed the photography! It's really been holding my attention forte past few weeks...and that's totally fine with me :)



One of the very first blogs I began reading was The Pioneer Woman and she's amazing! She taught me how to cook, take great pictures and castrate calves. This last one I haven't actually attempted in person....I hope it stays that way! Haha anyways she put up a "Guide to Blogging" list thing right before I began this blog and one of her guidelines was to never blog about the same thing twice...

Well PW...I'm sorry I'm breaking your rule...but Ouzts' Too is literally too awesome to not share more of it on here.

We tried to put ourselves in an "oyster coma" this weekend. We almost succeeded :)

New love...

So, I used to HATE peanut butter. I hated the smell, the taste, the feel, the consistency....most of all I hated Peanut Butter Breath. Imagine me as a little kid on some charter bus going on some wonderful field trip and all of the sudden...peanut butter crackers are passed around. 60 classmates ALL have the dreaded Peanut Butter Breath... I had nightmares for weeks I tell you!
Well recently, maybe a year ago, something changed (I think it has something to do with a bag of mini Reese's cups being left at my house) I finally acquired a taste for the stuff. I still don't like the grossly over-processed, preservative and who knows what else filled peanut butter... But this...this concoction of dark chocolate AND peanut butter?

Heaven :)

Earth Fare on the parkway is my new favorite love, I wish I still lived on that side of town!
Go there today!

Slightly obsessed...

This is my new favorite app for my iPhone. Instagram... It's like twitter with pictures and it has some neat filters you can play with :)

Missing beautiful weather...

Broken bells :) I will link all of these, I promise.
Sweet dreams!

In other news...

I did this yesterday.

Hey Niko...

Before I went to post this picture this morning I was pretty sure I didn't have an obsession with I'm not so positive haha. This is in one of the Fat Sandwich bathrooms. Fat Sandwich attracts a lot of graffiti artists (using the term "artist" very loosely) but some of the little tags are cute :)


P.s. Maybe I think this one is so cute because the person they are talking to has a similar name to me? I dunno...any secret admirers out there!?! Haha

Oldies but goodies...

This flower came from a rose bush I had at my old house in Indian Head, it had some of the prettiest roses I've ever seen. 

My puppy when he was...well, a puppy :)

Gorgeous sunset at St. Marks years ago...

Perfect my cars grille?


Sweet dreams...I'm flyering tomorrow :)

Happy Un-Birthday!

This is from a lil party I threw awhile ago for one of my dearest friends Chelsea. I've always thought it turned out nicely :)

The table decorations... of my homemade cards and an awesome vase and handkerchief from Good Finds, the amazing thrift store I've mentioned previously :)

The cake...'s one of my favorites.

Especially this picture...

Mmmm...I miss cake, I think I should make another.
