Now… time to build today’s early list so keep checking back. Can’t wait to hear how your weekend was, and if you’re reading or watching or eating something amazing.
1.) I watched the latest (new season!!) of Dexter! “New Blood”. It was really good. REALLY good. The big season reveal (well one of them, anyway 😉 ) I saw coming since I read (and loved) a book with a similar… theme. Let’s just say – that part of it – didn’t disappoint.
2.) I spent Saturday in Siesta Key. So beautiful, and fun, and sunny, and bright. After walking around the quaint streets, and eating at a place called Daiquiri Deck, we went to the beach and strolled with our feet in the water. Was a busy day (everyone was out) but so worth it.
3.) We walked around for awhile trying to remember where we parked (lots of street and private parking areas all over the place). I started to feel like we all need a “find my car” feature on our phones. Or maybe, I should have just put a pin location on my iMaps app. LOL!
