Back to Reality

Hey everyone! So I'm back from Florida and have basically a lot of the same pictures to show you from my trip. I didn't take a lot because I was just trying to be in the moment and enjoy the company so I have a few new photos and a few recycled photos from previous trips… I'm a creature of habit, I tend to eat the same things when I go to my favorite restaurants ;)

My brother was kind enough to take me to the airport on Thursday and was even more kind to take me to lunch before! We went to our favorite Turkish Restaurant (I'm pretty sure it may just be called "Shish Kebab" but I'm not sure… it's a mom and pop place) and I had the gorgeous Shepherd's salad pictured above. We also had some yummy hummus and bread that was hot out of the oven.

Of course we went to Loving Hut when I was in Florida and of course I got the Combo No. 1. It is by far my favorite meal there but I am definitely going to branch out and try something new next time!! I didn't go for the soup this time because it was about 85 degrees and I didn't want to fill my tummy with soup so I could eat the deliciousness of this meal.

We also did brunch at Ethos Vegan Kitchen as we always do :) I got the breakfast burrito which is full of potatoes, tofu scramble and faux sausage and is smothered in gravy. Oh man I am so obsessed with this burrito, it is so delicious!!

We also partook in some Electra Moscato. This is my favorite wine. I like very sweet dessert wines with zero dryness and this definitely hits the spot! I can't find it anywhere near me so I always make sure to have my fair share when I go and visit :)

On Saturday we visited the town of Cassadaga again and they were decorated for Halloween! This dude was chilling in the lobby at the Cassadaga Hotel and I couldn't help but take a photo. My friends had psychic readings done but I wasn't ready to do it yet (I really wanted to hear about their experiences) but I think I may go for it next time :) We had a great time and went on a really nice walk outside as well.

This was the view out the window of my plane on the way home. It was such a beautiful evening and the moon was so stunning and illuminated the fluffy clouds perfectly. I had an amazing time but was glad to see my family when I got home.

Do you guys have any Halloween plans? I have to work during the day but will meet up with Delilah later to catch the tail end of her trick or treating. She is going to be a Ninja Turtle! A girl after my own heart :) I will make sure to get some pictures of her if I can get there before she is out of her costume. If not I'll make sure to get some from my brother and sister in law.

How is everything going with all of you?! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the fall!

Checking In

Hi everyone! So I know I haven't quite kept up with my promise of new posts but I assure you I have amazing things in the works for this holiday season. Lots of food, hopefully some gift ideas and maybe even a chance to win a few gifts ;)

 I hope that you are all doing well! I'm still planning on coming back with food posts on either Wednesdays (What I Ate Wednesday) or Fridays (Foodie Fridays). That should be happening within the next week or so. Lots of things to update you all on and I'm looking forward to getting that going :)

Just two pictures because I love pictures.

I celebrated my birthday a few weeks ago and as part of my gift my friend gave me this AMAZING Fruit Loop scented bath bomb!! You guys, it was amazing!!! It is obviously vegan and it smells EXACTLY like Fruit Loops. I stayed at my brother's house from Saturday to Sunday when they were upstate overnight and it was cold and dreary and a perfect night for a bath. The scent was really strong and was perfectly sweet and citrusy and I loved it. If you are interested in checking out the products you can go to the etsy store here!! My friend got me some beautiful soaps and an amazing birthday cake candle that I burned on my birthday and it was so nice!

Our neighbors have an outdoor cat that wanders into our yard from time to time and she's just so cute I had to take a picture! She looks a little pissed in this picture but you know… I guess we all get pissed when someone sticks a camera in our faces.

Anyway, that's all for now. I'm working on getting myself organized and I will be back with some posts I hope you will all love! I hope you are all doing well!
