Sunday's Seven Snapshots vol.117

There is a restaurant in Sydney that calls itself "Tex Mex".  It is acceptable.  The best thing about it?  Half price margaritas during happy hour.

I saw this on the wall, and I liked it so much I read it about 5 times over to let it sink in before snapping the photo.

These guys ~ what can I say? ~ they are just so stinkin' cute and lovable.

I have more library cards in my wallet than credit cards, and I'm pretty damn pleased with that fact.

Some days, we like to go to the little "mom & pop" diner that serves simple dishes like toast with avocado, cheese, and tomato.

The description of this candle reads "sweet brown sugar melts into golden honey nectar on a base of candied almonds and vanilla milk".  I think this is what heaven smells like.

I finally watched the Big Little Lies finale.  This is the first television season that I've watched every episode since the last season of Dexter.  Yes, we've discussed that already.  I'm not big on tv.  But, I'm so glad I watched this.  Perfectly cast with incredible acting performances.  I will sing the praises of these actresses and actors to anyone who will listen.

Hope you all have a good week (and possibly a short one) coming up!


  1. I do love that quote - I've heard it before, but I didn't know who said it.

    Mm...that toast looks great. :)


  2. I've heard so many good reviews of big little lies! I really need to watch it. I'm loving that quote and who doesn't love half price margaritas ;)

  4. The candle sounds like it smells delicious. And that drink LOOKS like it smells delicious! And now I need to figure out if Big Little Lies is on any of the streaming platforms.

  5. Love everything here. You know I'm always going to heart pics of Astro and Ricky! That sign is perfect and a great way to start a Monday and keep your perspective. I LOVE Mom and Pop restaurants. They are my absolute fave and that toast looks delicious. I've heard so many great things about Big Little Lies. I have not read the book nor seen the show. Is this one where I should read the book first (which is my normal stance) or the series?

  6. I love that I haven't watched Big Little Lies yet, but sometime soon!! Did you find it differed a lot from the book?!

  7. They really couldn't have been more spot on when it came to casting for Big Little Lies, and I think that a lot of that had to do with the fact that Reese Witherspoon had read the book and fell in love with it! And hooray for library cards! I finally got a library card for the Katy area and I'm so excited about it!

  8. Oooh my weekend was definitely lacking margaritas... but I did have some chambord with my girlfriends. Which was much needed. :) Yay for library cards! I need to get on reading BLL because my MIL (so many acronyms) DVR-ed (ha) it for me. Can't wait! XO - Alexandra

  9. That Honey Nectar candle sounds like it smells amazing for real!!! Love that quote in that photo you took! I only watched the first episode of Big Little Lies because we decided to keep them until we could binge them all. So that needs to happen ASAP!!! I just love Reese and usually Nicole Kidman is good too so I am excited!

  10. I WANT THAT CANDLE! It sounds like something I would love, love, love.

    Also, love seeing pictures of your fur babies, they are so sweet. :)

  11. When I was in high school I discovered Quoteable and have been smitten every since. In fact, when we were shopping over the weekend, I found a whole bunch of Quotable cards and splurged. #QuoteLife

  12. That Candle!! I need it. I'm sure it smells ah-mazing! Thanks for sharing.

  13. oh my gosh, that toast looks ahhhhmazing. yay for library cards and tex mex! i love that quote you took a photo of. i would buy that if it was for sale lol.
