Maybe I should change my blog's name?

FL Chocolate Blog, perhaps?

It seems to be a theme around here lately.

Maybe it has something to do with the diet I'm on.

I picked up a super easy, everything included, chocolate lollipop kit at Joanne's and the kids had a blast making them over at their grandparents' house.

I wasn't expecting pink and yellow chocolate to taste quite as heavenly as it did.

( cute is that apron?  I got it on Etsy.)

Did you notice I said did?  They sure were delicious.

If you're looking for something different and fun (and super chocolatey) to do with the munchkins, this is it!

I recently posted a light hearted post about our quick trip down to Tarpon Springs.  I posted photos of pretty shells,  a boat, and wrote about what a wonderful day we had.

Well, the thing is...that's not all we did.  There's something that's been eating away at me.  Something I didn't want to share.  Hmmm...funny choice of words there.  I'm just going to come right out and confess to something...naughty...and dark...

Dark Chocolate.
And lots of it.

We stopped at Hella's for some of the most delicious, 
and super naughty desserts known to mankind.  

I feel better now that I've 'fessed up.  

Any sinfully yummy confessions of your own?

Tarpon Springs, FL

This past Sunday we took a short road trip down from Spring Hill to Tarpon Springs, FL. It had been far too long since I'd enjoyed some delicious Greek food, and the weather was just perfect for a stroll down Docadenese Drive, also known as The Sponge Docks.





I have to admit, this beautiful pink-washed building had me dreaming of buying it and running my own special little shop.  What a wonderful way to make a living.  

Surrounded by the smells of Greek delicacies, hand rolled cigars, the salty smell of the water, and the cheery relaxed faces of both vacationers and locals picking out their favorite shells, hand made soaps, and sponges to bring back home.  How does that sound to you?

It's chilly here today, how is it in your neck of the woods?
