Still can't help myself where the pictures are concerned! I have to put out all of the pictures of Halloweens past!
Also still love my Bethany Lowe witch lantern. I found her many years ago in a decor shop in Dade City. I loved that shop. It was soooo seasonal and I could always find some sort of treasure there every time I went. Unfortunately, it is no longer in business.
We have a fashionista soccer player. Only one out there with pink soccer socks and ribbon adornment in her hair...but, it sure does make it easy to spot her in a field if aqua!
For oh so many years, I would go to Gainesville at least once a week to pick up the girls from elementary school on early dismissal days. We would eat out, spend the day together and end up at our G.S. meeting later that evening. One of our favorite spots to go was the quaint little town of Alachua. Kind of a place where time stood still. They always decorate the whole town for the seasons but they truly shine in autumn. All of the stores have a scarecrow contest and decorate to the nth!
In any case, Morgan's favorite restaurant was The Ivy House. It was in a big old Victorian and just kind of an experience more than just a meal. Sadly, it went out of business....only to reopen recently in another old Victorian right here in Ocala. So, it was no surprise when Morgs asked if we could go. Since my hubby and I head there almost every Sunday after church, we were more than ready!
It is a good thing that Morgs doesn't live here or I might have trouble fitting through doors. We never order dessert-especially after we have already had an appetizer of fried green tomatoes with the best south western aoli I have ever tasted and then our huge entrees-but, when a grand daughter asks,.......!!
This was Morgan's chocolate explosion......It is hard to see but under that homemade vanilla bean ice cream is the most decadent, fudgy brownie and then it was covered in chocolate ganache. And, that is REAL whipped cream!
And, here is my key lime pie....and yes, once again, REAL whipped cream!
I have a few fun things on the agenda for this week. Can't wait to share. Stay tuned.
