Books from Book Expo

There were some wonderful authors, book totes, and books
this year at the Book Expo.

This was one of my favorite tote bags.
I decided I wanted it enough to wait in line for it!

These are what I hope to be reading soon.








These are the ones I will be reading with the grandkids.










This should be a great summer of reading for all of us!

Vacation Food

This vacation started with good food!

On our way to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, we stopped at an old favorite restaurant called Surf Rider.  The crab cakes and broccoli with hollandaise sauce are one of my favorites.  It is a great way to start vacation!

A rainy Monday at the beach took my daughters and I to FatCrabs in Corolla for lunch!  Awesome place for peel and eat shrimp with good spices on them, crab legs and hush puppies.  Yummm!!

Nothing like finishing the day off with some warm donuts that have amazing choices of toppings – keylime with graham cracker topping, blueberry topping, peanut butter with chocolate and many more options.

We enjoy eating at the beach!
