This post is so late, but I have wanted to share this beautiful gift I received for my birthday last month from a good friend. They came from http://www.williamdeanchocolates.com/ where all are handmade in their Florida shoppe. And with new blogger why can't I "hide" the web address like I used to when I added a link and wrote "here"?? Anyway, they came to my doorstep on one of the hottest days in August, but were nice and cool in the insulated packaging and ice packs. I took pictures just so I could remember the sheer beauty of these pieces of art! But once I finally decided which one to try (not kidding I studied the brochure for a long time before I decided which one to part with!), I found the tastes were unbelievably incredible, too! The passion fruit caramel was a favorite, but so was the dulce de leche, the espresso, the lavender, the lemongrass, the key lime pie....you get the point. I finished the last one today: a dark chocolate mousse-like one. Your mouth literally has a party with each flavor! What a neat gift. I had to share. Would make a great Christmas gift to have sent to someone special in your life. I might have to order some more for me! Yum!!
The man at my cute local wine store wisely advised me that a whole bottle (of KUNG FU GIRL) will kick my @$$. His humor. Not mine. Ha! And I know I didn't follow the "wordless" part of Wednesday...again.
You've gotta love waking up on vacation to a swollen bottom lip. Mr. Pink is out looking for Benadryl. Years ago I had this problem and went through allergy testing when all it really turned out to be was stress from a new job. My lips (mainly bottom) burned though after a day in the sun Sunday. Then we went to a Japanese steakhouse (SODIUM) and then I ate leftovers last night. It's got to be a combo of the two. SO I look a little like Angelina Jolie this morning...lips only. Mr. Pink said "See. Now you see how botox would ruin your lips." He's an real encourager. Have a great day. Angelina signing off.
After mini#2's soccer game this morning we're headed to the coast for a week of, hopefully, sun and fun. Yes, while most of you of settling into the first few weeks of school, we are tracked out of year round school for 3 weeks since we started back in July. I LOVE September track out. The beaches aren't as crowded and the weather is supposed to be low 80's all week. Looking forward to some down time.
And, since this is my blog, I must brag on mini#1. He made 5 A's and 1 B on his very first letter grade report card. Yes, don't get me started on the NC number grade system for K-5. He finally got "real" grades in middle school and he worked very hard. I'm super proud of him. Don't worry I didn't post this on facebook. Ha! More people read those braggy comments than people read this blog so I only posted here.
I love my boys. And I'm going to get one of these shirts to prove it. Ha! A mom friend that has FOUR sons was wearing one of these last spring at one of our soccer games. This site www.BoyMomDesigns.com has a lot of sport options, too if you are interested (baseball, football, wrestling to name a few). They even have a some Girl Mom selections. I like the long sleeve basic black one personally. I wish I had thought of this idea!
