Hey guys, today was a crazy hectic day.
I'm so sorry that I was late and missed the email.
When I was reminded of this picture ->>>>>>
of Elisa enjoying her Spaghetti in Prague, I immediately thought "what a perfect picture" then I wished that I had one like that, but I don't (insert sad face here). And then I remembered a few pictures that I took of Chaplin slurping up her pasta a few years back...
Well folks, I'm gonna share the pics I took today in tomorrows blog. Be sure to check them out!
Toodles and enjoy your noodles,
Hello! Hope you are having a good one!
I'm having a great day here! Did a bit of pampering this morning. It was that time again to get my hair done. It seems as if "that time" comes around quicker and quicker to refresh my color. In any case, it certainly makes for a relaxing few hours. I especially love having my hair blown out. Feels so nice.
As you might have noticed, Tanya has driven from SoCal through Fairfield and is now in Santa Rosa, California. I'm hoping she posts a few pictures from the sights along the way!
With the month-long celebration of National Pizza and Pasta Month, we find ourselves today celebrating National Noodle Day! I don't know about you, but I could literally eat noodles every day! Not the best thing for my waist line and overall fit look, but, oh so yummy.
We thought it would be fun to do a little "noodle talk" and bring you 11 Fun Facts About Noodles.
Hope you indulge in your fair share of noodles today!!
