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 me...it'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 walls...here...look...see 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 advice...to 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 world...it 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!!!
