Thanks Delta Sky Club!

I may have partaken in some extra, excellent quality, lotion for my very tanned and slightly peeling ankles (ankles. . .srsly- nothing else is peeling!?!?).  Almost makes up for our flight to JFK being cancelled.  Spirits remain high, though.  🙂

Fresh mince pies!  Plus, eight days in the hot Mexican sun- he wants that too.  🙂

With the reemergence of the Marks & Spencer Winter Berries & Prosecco Crisps, it can only mean one thing: Christmas!!

Of course, the 14 flights I booked a couple of weeks ago should have given that away too. . .

My contribution to the Christmas 2016 dessert table.  🙂

Happy Holidays, everyone!


Our flight from Dublin to JFK was almost downright pleasant this time.

The flight passed super quickly- even the two extra hours we spent waiting for a gate at JFK due to snow.

We’ll just ignore the fact that I was (once again) tagged for extra security. . .

We’ve been soaking up as much local Christmas tradition as possible before heading to the States tomorrow.  Scott has made it his personal mission to try every freshly baked mince pie in the city.  His favourite, however, was much closer to home at Avoca.

Now onto Southern goodies for Christmas and Mexican specialties for New Year (on the beach. . .with lots of top shelf margaritas)!

Labor Day weekend, time to get out the jet skis!

Another fun part of Summer in Tennessee: giant insects!  😀
