That’s it…I am moving here.


Hello again from Florida!!!

Check out this dinner spread Kim’s amazing family had prepared:

We had this delicious spread which included an amazing fruit/spinach salad, as well as HOMEMADE mac and cheese.  It was heavenly.  They also had grilled chicken, which I substituted with my leftover Eggplant from lunch.

It was awful, TERRIBLE.  ;-)  I think if I wasn’t in the company of other human beings, I would have promptly grabbed the plate and licked it clean.  Common courtesy prevented that……..barely.

It was then time to head to Fresh Market!

Insert the biggest citrus fruit I have ever seen in my life.  Welcome to Florida, I suppose.

Bowling balls I tell you, bowling balls!!!!!

They even had FREE coffee.  This wasn’t just any coffee.  Check out the flavor, and prepare your mouth for moisture.

They also had the oddest chocolate I have ever seen.

Bacon. Chocolate.           I’m gonna let everyone think about that for a minute.  Go on, I will wait.

…..

Ok….back to goodness:

Plus the rarest dried fruit out there….dried Kiwis!

Then it was off to Publix!

Where I ran into my dear friend…

We finished grocery shopping (sad!) an headed to a fun harbor at Tampa Bay!

What a night.  Seriously best day ever!!!!!!!  I cannot wait!  Tomorrow morning I have a huge pumpkin muffin from Fresh Market to look forward to, as well as some fresh Florida fruit!  So stoked!  We also may do some shopping.  ;-)

G’night from down south!

P.S., how friggin cute is Kim’s nephew Ryan?!?!?
