{Random} Wrapping Up May

Before I take you through some of the random things I did in May, I wanted to let you know that I'm guest posting today over at Not a Trophy Wife  my American Flag Jar Luminaries project.


 Go say hi to Laura for me, she recently had her site hacked and lost pretty much everything but she's come back even better than ever--and is still looking for guest bloggers if you can help her out!

 My second round of lilacs, they have slightly smaller blossoms but are extra fragrant.  You can smell them from the sidewalk!
 Spotting some pretty irises on our walk.
 Picking my niece up from the bus and heading to "our Starbucks" for a treat.
 Mother's Day flowers from the hubs.
 Going pattern crazy with the gift wrap.
 Off to a surprise party.
 Mother's day breakfast. I'm drinking coffee..or trying to..the mug was so heavy!
 After Miss H/S went to work on Mother's Day we spent the day together.
 Picking out flowers for my containers and garden is a Mother's Day tradition.
 Then we went for a walk.
 Ending the night with Mexican food with the family and a large margarita.
 When your photo shoot gets cancelled but you're near the mall and it's just opening....
 Trying on shoes at Primark.  I got them in black too!
 Discovering the best vegan ice cream I've tried so far....Nada Moo has some really fun flavors too.
Making an conscious effort to spend more time in our outdoor spaces.  
 Jazzzing up the front porch a bit too.
 Lots of rain forced me inside a Starbucks while Miss H/S was doing a school project at a local museum.  It was cold enough to have the fireplace on in May this day!
Getting some test prints done at a real photo lab. I was so happy with how they looked!
 Sending her off by herself to the big city to go visit her sister!
 Trying to show off my new clutch and this fancy coffee (but wish my nails looked better!).
 The cup was so pretty, I made it into a vase (used a glass inside) for some roses.
Let's Keep In Touch!

{Daytripping}Nockamixon State Park

Another Saturday to ourselves, another little adventure. Mr. Click and I headed out to visit Nockamixon State Park in Quakertown, Pennsylvania.
We passed some beautiful farm land on the way up. I'm a sucker for a red barn and that sky!!
I was wearing these thrifted shorts (and the pink sweatshirt too) and my favorite Birkenstocks for walking.
You can't help but see the huge 1,450 acre Lake Nockamixon when you get to the park.
We started on a trail that ran around the lake. You can rent boats or bring your own.
The park is 5,246 acres and there is plenty to do there: biking, hiking, fishing, camping (in cabins), swimming (in the pool), disc golf and grilling/picnicking.
The views of the lake were stunning.
Taking a fun little selfie.
It didn't feel busy or crowded that day, which was nice. We walked a few miles and then we were hungry!
Did someone say lunch? I found a newly opened vegetarian restaurant that wasn't too far from the park called Clean Roots Vegetarian Cuisine in Quakertown, Pennsylvania.   I had the Waco Taco salad, the taco meat was made out of walnuts and also had black beans, seasonal salsa, lettuce, radishes, scallions and guacamole.
Mr. Click had the grilled cheese (not pictured) and it came with a side of radishes and dip. Yep, they became my radishes dip!  Such a fun side!  They weren't too spicy and the dip was vegan Caesar.
We also tried the vegan mac and cheese which was creamy and amazing...and even ordered more to bring home for Miss High School...it was that good.
We walked around Quakertown for awhile after lunch and checked out the many antique stores. I found this patchwork quilt (my second one!) and it was a steal at $8!
We were also so close to my favorite vegan bakery that we had to make a quick drive to Vegan Treats for some vegan soft serve (peanut butter and chocolate swirl) before heading home from our little adventure.  Thanks for joining us!

Anything Goes

Every year I do a post on Miss High School's show because I want to remember them as well as share them with you.
This year's show was "Anything Goes" with music and lyrics by Cole Porter(so you know it's a good one!). It's set on the S.S. American ocean liner and plenty of hijinks ensue!
 The show was so fun and full of lots of great songs.
Some were familiar to me like "I Get A Kick Out of You", "You're the Top", "It's De-Lovely" and "Anything Goes" to name a few.
 Miss High School was Erma Latour, described as a lovingly clueless dame, a typical 20's gun moll with a "Joisy" accent.
 Most of these photos will be of "Erma" since she's my "Erma".
 The sailors sure loved her too.

 This is her solo "Buddy Beware".
 I wish I could see the show just one more time!

 The dance numbers were all so amazing.

If you ever get the chance to see this show...GO!! You will love it!
