Welcome to Willoughby's Blog Style Cocktail Party. I hope you will find some new blogs to follow and expand your circle of blog friends. I know you're all anxious to mingle, so I'll get right to it.
I'd like to introduce Kathy and Seashell from the blog Two Hands Full Of Daisies. I know you'll enjoy their blog as much as I do.
Kathy is a Mom of three and has had the privilege of being a SAHM while working part-time in the family business. She is almost through with the Mom phase of her life and, as her kids leave home, she is looking forward to a very different life. Times are changing...very quickly! She loves J. Crew, living on Cape Cod and dreams of being an athlete one day!
Seashell is a fabulous 15 year old and will be commenting right along with her mum. She's on her way to being a sophmore and she's excited :). She love love LOVES to row and does it three out of the four seasons. She's also going to be a C.I.T. (counselor in training) at her camp, which she is SOOOOO pumped for! She loves little kids and hopes to be a teacher, so she's working on that for her future! Yay :)
Seashell, Mother-in-Law and I took the ferry to Nantucket today. We took the 9:10 fast ferry and were there in an hour. MIL is a bit older and did not want to spend too much time there so we shopped for an hour, ate for an hour and shopped for another hour! We were back home by 3:00 with few purchases. I only got one tee, but (as usual) Seashell came home with a few goodies! Here we are before getting on the ferry:
As usual, I forgot to take anymore pictures during the outing. We had a nice lunch at The Brotherhood of Thieves. The waiter gave us bum advise on the size of the portions and we ended up with way too much food. We wanted to share a cheese plate, but he said that it was very small so Seashell and I each ordered the cheese and an appetizer. I had the fried calamari and Seashell had the conch fritters. It turned out that the cheese plate was enough for the three of us and now we had two! The calamari app was HUGE. We didn't finish any of it. After a little rest we are headed to the beach!
Mum's right, we ordered wayy too much food! Plus I didn't really like the conch fritters, I thought they were too spicy, so we brought them home for dad to eat. We also stopped to get some fudge at Aunt Leah's! I usually don't eat all that much of it but I saw some vanilla m&m fudge that looked deliciousss.
And of course, I returned home with a few new things! :D When we were browsing the Life Is Good store mum bought me a sweatshirt blanket that has Nantucket rowing on it. It's sooooo warm and comfy!!!
While we were in the book shop, me and mum were looking at a book we thought was cute, so we got that too. "The Girl's Book of Excellence".
