Life Lately

Today we will ride roller coasters, pet kangaroos, feed birds, and wander around one of my very favorite places in the whole Tampa Bay area... Busch Gardens! There aren't many places where you can get your roller coaster and bird fix all in the same place. It's like my own personal little slice of heaven. { come back thursday for pictures }

wearing long sleeves has become a luxury... who would have thought

This past week consisted of trips to the park, walks through the trees, wearing of longer sleeves, and eating of homemade foods. We ate lots of this chicken salad. It's been a good week.

mixing the dressing into the chicken salad... yum yum

While walking the boardwalk through one of our favorite parks, I spotted a common yellowthroat for the very first time. (I have no idea why it took so long) That may not be very exciting to many, but it's pretty fun for a bird nerd like me. Oh, and we also watched The Big Year. Have you seen it too?

finally found this stuff

Oh and Florida grocery stores finally started carrying all of the delicious seasonal flavored creamers I've been reading about on all of your blogs. Whew! I was about to write a formal complaint to the creamer companies... or to the state of Florida, depending on who was responsible for the delay. I bought some Pumpkin Spice creamer for now. Peppermint mocha is next on the list.

Happy Tuesday!
