*The word "snippet" sounds painful.  Ouch!

*We had a 5. earthquake here this evening.
   Really?  Really!

*Our newest Granddoll, Zoey, is now a
   member of the 3 lb club! 7 wks old.

*Several of you asked how the gals in
  our online girls group met.  (Here)
  We met when iVillage was a "thang".

*This week's Guilty Pleasure:
  Hershey Cherry Cordial Kisses. 
  I'm addicted.  I can't even care.

I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive these unedited photos.  Dig deep.
If you've followed me a long time you know that each year I take a Girl's Trip with a group of friends that I met online.  Weird, I know!  We've been friends now for 10+ years.  We talk online most every day on our own private FB page and once a year we head to a different location for a "four day slumber party" which includes sightseeing, eating, laughing, eating, wine, eating, and having just the BEST time!!  This year the states represented by our group were:  Georgia, Oklahoma, California, Montana, Delaware, Chicago, and Texas.  Our meet up was in Ashville, NC.   I was so busy having a good time that I didn't take many photos, but want to share the ones I have.

This was a fun way to see the city.

And no trip to Asheville is complete without a tour of the beautiful Biltmore Estate.

During the festivities I was crowned this year's Queen of our group, complete with crown and sash!  

It is a huge honor to represent such a dignified group of women!
(The caption is an inside joke and if I told you I'd have to...well, you know the rest)

New guy!

There's a new guy in town
and I think I'm in l-o-v-e!
     Trader Joe!
No paid endorsement or such, just love at first sight.

I was happy when I heard this guy was coming to my town.  Not everything I bought was a win, but the things I did like were FAN-TAS-TIC!  My absolute favorites were the Orange Chicken, the Vegetable Rice, and the lightly breaded Eggplant.  All frozen and "quick fixes".   See that jar of Peach Salsa?  If Santa wants to bring me an entire sleigh full of those I swear I'll be happy all winter.  Haven't had a chance to try the Sweet Potato Fries yet but I've high expectations.  Let the record show the quiche and the pumpkin yogurt were both blech.

I've some friends who don't particularly love TJ like I do, but I can't imagine why.  Do you have a TJ where you live?  What's your take on this guy?
