Aunt Stelle’s is a Sno Cone spot that I grew up on. My Mom would take me a few times each Summer. There is no other Sno Cone that can beat what they have. You can count on long lines and mosquito bites, but its all worth it for that first bite of cold heaven. My Husband and I went often when we dated, and of course our kids followed. Its now a family tradition. My favorite is PINK LADY.
I love Z Gallerie. Walking in the store felt like home to me. I didn’t want to talk…just look. I spotted so many things that I wanted, and took mental photos to share. The Albert Einstein art piece is absolutely beautiful in my eyes. I would love to hang it in my home. There are also a few other things that caught Tam’s eye.
My hubby left his glasses at West Elm last week, so I stopped by to pick them up. Believe it or not, no one in the house wanted to go with me. I wonder why? They probably thought I would take to long…MY METHOD FINALLY WORKED. Their sofa, chair, and new window panels caught my eye. After that…I spotted Urban Outfitters having a sale. Why not run across the street to see what goodies they have.
After shopping alone, I took a detour to the neighborhood that I grew up in. I decided to stop by, and take a photo of the little house I called home for 18 years. I like to ride by every so often just to see what it looks like, and image my life then. I noticed they removed all the bushes, and trees. Closed off my bedroom window…the list goes on. I think that will be my final ride by. I also stopped by the park that I played at with my uncle as a child, and then with my boyfriend as a teen.
***Funny note*** My husband (then boyfriend) had just purchased his first car, and came to pick me up for our first date. As soon as we pulled off, and headed down the hill. His brakes gave out, and we were a few feet away from driving into the creek. We were saved by the good old emergency brake. Talk about a date to remember. I screamed something loud that day.
I over slept on the 4th. GOOD SLEEP. As the day progressed my daughter begged for a driving lesson, so why not. Hubby had been cooking, and grilling for a while, so we sat outside for a while and chatted it up. Indulged in some Blue Bell Ice Cream…and finally the Que. My man can grill. Thanks Babe! The men of the house finally realized they needed to make a Game Stop run. So we made a quick drive there and back. After that….my Husband took us riding in his truck which is always fun. As we waited for dark to hit…I took an hour and a half to compose yesterdays blog post (yep…a long time for a post). We took off to watch the fire works…returned to eat again, play games, nap, and relax. What a great day, and overall weekend with my FAMILY.
High Fives & Hugs,
