Though the weekend is over, and according to the calendar, summer is coming to an end soon (but not here), with temperatures still in the mid 90's and high humidity - I am always reminded of no matter the temperature and the humidity, there is so much to be grateful for living in the Sunshine State. Last evening, as with every Saturday, my husband and I had our date night. We went to the International Plaza in Tampa for shopping (yes, I actually bought a pair of Ugg's Caspia boots). Yeah, I know with temperatures in the mid 90's what was I thinking...well, I love them, they are so soft inside it's like waking on a cloud. They are super cute on, and believe it or not, I got the last pair, only one left in a different size, so I'm not the only one out there thinking and hoping for a super cold winter here.
After shopping for a few hours we drove over to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge for a little photography, it started to sprinkle a little as we arrived, but stopped as soon as we pulled over to watch the sunset. Wished it was a little earlier so the water would have been more blue but it was getting dark But the sunset was spectacular...after watching the sun go down we left for one of my favorite Southwest Restaurants called Red Mesa...ohhhh, so good. If you live in this area, and haven't tried it, you really should, the food is fabulous and never disappointing over the many years we've been going there. My husband is out playing golf, all three of the fur babies have been bathed and groomed and are sound to sleep like little babies, and I about ready to start making the Taquitos and Spanish noodles for dinner. I must say, it's been a very nice, relaxing weekend - ready for the week ahead. Hope everyone had a great weekend as well and the week ahead is a wonderful one. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
