2014/137: Spread The Love

Mmmmm, Marmite! I tried it on a “you should try it” not-quite-dare and was told it’s either a love-it or hate-it thing. I have to admit it tasted a bit strange at first. Very strange! I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either. ย But at about $6 for a tiny little jar of this stuff, I figured it’s worth another try. And the more I ate of it, the more I liked it. Now I don’t want to live without it! ๐Ÿ˜‰
On Mother’s Day we drove all the way to Grapevine, TX to do a little shopping at the British Emporiumย and I found a giant 500g jar of it! That should last me a week or two ๐Ÿ˜‰

What about you? Have you tried Marmite? Do you love it? Hate it?
Lucky for me, hubby is not a big fan of it and the kids flat out refuse to try it. Oh well, more for me (all for me!!)

2014/133: One For Luck

Wishing a very good friend the best of luck today! ๐Ÿ˜‰

And yes, it’s a real four-leaf clover. No cheating! I was lucky enough to find it one evening in my front yard. We had just come home from the store or from dinner….or somewhere, I don’t remember anymore. I got out of the car, and happened to look down when this little guy reached up his arms and said “Pick me! Pick me!”….. so I did ๐Ÿ™‚


Had to take some pictures of it first, and then went back out front to look for more, but nope, this one seemed to be the only one.

2014/125: Galveston’s Pleasure Pier

Pleasure Pier is a new addition to Galveston. It was built where the Flagship Hotel used to be (the hotel was torn down after it was damaged during Hurricane Ike in 2008) and opened in 2012.

2014/123: Happy Place

Almost any beach will do…this was Texas City Dike

2014-123 1

Getting my feet wet was a must, although the water was still pretty chilly!

Of course the kids looked for seashells to take home as souvenirs. These little guys however were NOT allowed to come home with us!

2014/120: Uninspired

That’s definitely me. I keep forgetting to schedule a post….can’t think of any good titles….and I keep watching the post count in my reader go up, for other blogs that I follow. I apologize for not being around much, and I promise to do better…soon!


2014/119: Feeling Blue

Not really….just the first thing that popped into my head for a title.
