The entrance to my and my husbands room.
The inside was very simple, cute, and very clean. Of course we still bring our own sheets, blankets, and pillows ;-)

Where did the time go. My youngest daughter started high school on Monday. Her best friend/boyfriend gets up extra early and rides his bike to our house and waits for her to get ready. Unfortunately we do not have bus transportation to the school because we live 1.8 miles away and you must live 2 miles to have bus transportation. Ridiculous considering our children would have to cross a major 4 lane highway to get to the school. And what about if it rains? Anyway, I have been taking them and it stinks because on the days I have to work it puts me behind and on my days off I still have to get up early to take them to school :-( Oh well, on the bright side since I am forced to wake up early on my days off I will hopefully get more accomplished!

This is the entrance: (click on picture to enlarge)
This is a wheel located in the restaurant that was once used in a sugar mill.
My mom and I had eggs that we scrambled ourselves, bacon that we did not cook, and toast that we buttered and toasted on the griddle. The only negative to this fun was that there is no air conditioning in the rustic restaurant and the griddles produce alot of heat and in turn it made for a sweaty meal. But it was worth it.

The necklace came with earrings and it was $3. I think it might be Premier jewelry brand but I am not sure. For $1 we bought 3 sets of crab claw crackers and gave one to my mom. Vintage tupperware one is a container and the other is a jello mold with interchangable shapes to make a decoration on the top of the jello those were $1 for both, a large plate or picture stand for $1, a set of three candle holders for $2, and....
This milk glass rooster for $1! I have wanted one of these for a long time and cannot believe I found one at a yard sale for $1.
We also bought a wrought iron rocking chair to put out on our patio around our fire pit. That was $2. After garage saling we went to the Farmers market to buy vegetables. Then we had lunch at P.R.'s a mexican restaurant.
Gotta go. I am cooking eggplant parmesan with the fresh eggplant we had today then watching Media Goes to Jail.

On Saturday we went to the Greek village of Tarpon Springs. This village was established in 1890 and the Greeks made a fortune harvesting and selling sponges. The next two pictures are of sponges that were brought in while we were there. The pictures are backwards.
There are alot of shops there that sell sponges and homemade soaps. There are Greek restaurants and bakeries.
We ate outside at this restaurant. There was a sponge boat right next to us with the Greek boat owner on board and about 4 old greek men hanging out with him.

These people were there with a horse and buggy. Looks like fun!
Mitchell brought along his fishing poles and we stopped a couple of times so he could throw his line in.
This Bridge was the perfect spot for a photo op.
This was an old wooden bridge we had to cross.
We saw this big guy in the creek on the side of the road. Scary!!
After we left we stopped here for dinner. Mitchell had the frog leg combo platter (yes frog legs gross) and I had the fried catfish (I realize that some people may think that is gross too).
This is a side few of the restaurant. They offer air boat rides here too.
