Evening Out

Matt got off work early today! It was definitely a nice feeling for the both of us. We were able to eat an early dinner for a change. After dinner, Matt and I went to the local Farmer's Market here in Oceanside. They block about 3 streets off and have a lot of vendor booths and tents set up with people selling items. There is normally a band playing, jumping houses, and a lot of food. Of course, the name wouldn't make since if they didn't sell fresh produce and flowers, so that is there as well.
And this is what makes me enjoy living in California.
Fresh squeeze organic lemonade. Very sweet & sour!
And of course, who doesn't love funnel cakes??
Matt was being silly without me knowing and put whip cream in his mouth(picture on the left)
Matt's new hot sauce. The Nemesis. Just the name alone sounds intimidating to me! This hot sauce contains tons of peppers and spices including the habanero and ghost pepper. We also found out tonight that the ghost pepper is no longer the hottest pepper in the world; the Naga Viper Pepper is and you can read about it by clicking that link. It is actually hot enough to strip paint. Yes, paint.

And I got me something -  fresh flowers. I made a flower arrangement just like I've wanted to for awhile now. Definitely not as easy as it looks to be at the florist shop. I think I did an O.K. job, but Matt says it looks "perfect"; which, of course makes me feel better. I am my worst critic.

Happy Birthday, Mom! I love you very much and Matt loves you too. We hope you had a nice day out with Dad. We miss you! Sending you a hug via computer.


  1. Looks like fun!! I love fresh squeezed lemonade!! I usually make some when lemons start going on sale, so yummy and refreshing!

  2. Thank you, Bridget. I did have a nice birthday, and you topped it off with your comment. I love you both too. When you talk to Matt tell him we think of him often and pray for his safe return. Yesterday, Dad and I had a pink/strawberry lemonade. It was good, but it somewhat made my tongue sore. Matt was right, your arrangement does look nice.
