Random Thoughts and Pictures Thursday

I've been feeling a little lost for blog content as of late.
I'll try and post more fun stuff such as recipes in the next few weeks.
As for today..
Just a random thought and picture Thursday.
I won a giveaway over at Ashley's blog a few weeks ago and last week my loot arrived!
It included their newest flavors, I choose the Passion Fruit as my favorite!
 As you may have seen in my last post I made cupcakes for our Easter lunch tablescape and dessert.
Here's what they looked like before colored sugar and sprinkles.
Carrot with cream cheese frosting.
I was lazy and used a cake mix, and honestly.. I won't be doing that again.
This weekend I'm thinking of making this or some other cake.
Stay tuned..
 I had to share this picture of sweet Buddy on the ride home from Easter at my parents.
He never likes to lay down in the car anymore on long rides and it drives me nuts!
So, this time I went out of my way to get him as comfortable as possible so he would feel secure to snooze even though Brad was driving 90-miles an hour and slamming on the brakes.
 The Arnold Palmer tea/lemonade packets are my new favorite and I generally only drink water.
Perfect for Summer and you could even add some Firefly vodka to really get your party started.
It's turned off cold again here in the Carolinas and I'm over it.
Just as everyone plants their Spring flowers, brings back their sandals.. WHAM! 30-degrees again.
At least they're forecasting 82-degrees on Sunday.

We have nothing too major planned for our weekend festivities.
What about you?

The arnold palmer drink looks delish. Thanks for your comment about my Indian outfits. A friend of mine let me borrowed those outfits so that was really nice.

Had to catch up on reading your blogs (was soooo busy lately) but enjoyed it very much. You sure know how to make things look good. Your caramelized banana pudding might be something I have to try really soon. Thanks for sharing all your good ideas.

Sweet Buddy.

I have never tried that lemonade/tea mix, but people adore it!

Sara said...

We love Arnie P's in the Jones house! Those cup cakes look delish :)

My hubby is there in NC again, wish I was too!

Hey, I'm behind. Buddy looks so comfy in his seat.

I just got your e-mail, and I will respond later. So sorry about not being able to get together. I will miss seeing you, but totally understand.

Impulsive Addict said...

Just so you know, I love Buddy! If you want to give him to me, you can. =)

Those cupcakes look amazing!

Love Buddy lounging in the backseat. Haven't tried the APs but will now!

I hear you! I have been struggling for things to talk about lately. One thing I am loving about TX is the warm weather (I am sure I will regret this in the summer.) I always hated when it would go from the 70s to the 30s in TN. So depressing! Glad it got warm again!

Nikki said...

Oh Buddy. Issy will whine in the car unless we're on the freeway. I do everything I can to keep her quiet too ;)

Can you freeze that yogurt?..that's a ton!
