Hey!!! I'm loving' those Iceland Murals that Tanya is posting. Is anyone else jealous of this scenic trip she is on?? I know I'm not alone. So keep reading her blog through Sunday!!
Speaking of Trip Journals...
If you caught my Daily yesterday, you know how I feel about documenting and journaling trips. As such, both Tanya and I keep an archives of all of our live blogs from the trips we go on. We will be updating all of these, which include to date:
* Tanya's UK- Scandinavian Trip (August 2014)
* Elisa's Italy Trip (August 2014)
* Cousins New Mexico Road Trip (October 2014)
* Elisa's Throwback China Adventure Trip (May 1991)
These daily blog accounts are a wonderful source of reference for you when planning your own trips. We do hope they serve as inspiration and assistance as you work out your personal itinerary(s).
Tonight we have our annual Parish Party. Of course, I waited till the last minute to decide to what to wear. I tried on a number of dresses in my closet but, naturally, I didn't like the way I looked in any of them.
So, last night at 6:30, me and Denise (who is also coming tonight) decided to go shopping for dresses at the mall. Fortunately, we both found something. The problem for both of us was that we needed to get our dresses altered. Luckily, her mother in law is a seamstress who was able to do her's and I have a wonderful seamstress who accommodated me as well.
From the seamstress I ran to Lord & Taylor's to get stockings for both me and Denise, since she had to work today; dropped them off to her at work and then hustled over to the hair salon to get my hair done.
I know it's going to be fun. Lots of couples from the kids' school and our town will be there, including my dear friend Maria!! Food, wine and dancing - what could be better!!
I'll give you the report with pictures tomorrow!!

A New Day, A New Adventure!
It's Tanya here is Iceland and on today's agenda I have planned a South Shore Adventure!!!
This is the perfect trip for outdoor lovers...AKA me!
Ya know, when a picture just doesn't do...
When you need to experience it for yourself, to be there, to touch it, feel it, see it with your own eyes, breath it in; LIVE IT!
Well that's what we are here doing!
And for those of you who don't need the full experience and prefer to live through my blog, well I'm here to share it with you first hand!
(Mom that's you! lol)
We went along the south coast of Iceland; which is one of the country´s most scenic regions!
Visited the charming village of Vík where all the forces of nature collide and some of the most iconic of Icelandic scenic attractions are located.
Along the way we be stopped at the beautiful Seljalandsfoss waterfall, where we walked behind it and through to the other side...in the dark!!
Luckily Dominic remembered his handy dandy flashlight!
And what would a visit to the Southern Coast be without also stopping at the majestic, amazing and very much-photographed Skógafoss waterfall, getting up close to it and being completely sprayed by the cold mist!!
Plus got a lovely tour of the Skógar Folk Museum, where we saw and learned how the Icelanders lived in the past, saw and went into the small turf houses and learned about the history of the Icelandic inhabitants.
We did and saw so much, which also included walking up to stunning glaciers, iceberg lakes, black sand coastlines and impressive rock formations!!!
I'm totally excited all over again from looking at these pictures and sharing my day with you! It was GREAT!!!
And don't think for a second that I forget about Foodie Friday - come on now...it's me - I never forget about FOOD!
Click here for the review, and lots of drool worthy pictures!
