Steampunk

Posted by miss m on Sunday, March 24, 2013 @ 7:05pm in Entertainment, General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs, Things To Do |

I’ve long been a fan of the Steampunk aesthetic. Gears, clockwork, copper, leather; that neo-Victorian style combined with some H.G. Wells and a bit of what if? imagination. But it’s not something I’ve ever participated in personally. Until earlier this year I kinda decided to start seeing if I could put together an outfit. Then […]

Where Did February Go?

Here we are and it’s already March. And I realize my intentions to actually sit down and write out a blog entry in my oh-so-neglected blog last month not only never came to pass, but I didn’t even come close. Handful of photo posts….and that’s about it. Sheesh. Just seems like I’ve been so busy […]

Boston Bruins at Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by miss m on Friday, February 22, 2013 @ 1:17pm in Entertainment, General Blather, Photography and Pics, Things To Do |

Love’s birthday was Monday, February 18th. (And yes, this year it WAS on President’s Day!) His favorite NHL team is the Boston Bruins. They were coming here to Tampa only once this season and that game was Thursday, February 21st. So I got him tickets to the game as his birthday present. Here’s a few […]

Barenaked…in Busch Gardens

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 @ 12:14am in Entertainment, General Blather, Photography and Pics, Things To Do |

Barenaked Ladies played the “Bands, Brew and BBQ” event at Busch Gardens Tampa on Sunday, February 17th and I was lucky enough to get to go see them! I’ve been a fan of Barenaked Ladies (BNL) for years now. I first got to see them open for one of my all-time favorite singers, Sarah McLachlan, […]

Downtown St. Petersburg

Posted by miss m on Saturday, June 2, 2012 @ 9:15pm in Entertainment, Freebies Discounts Deals, Love, Photography and Pics, Travel, Weather |

This afternoon, we braved the intense June Florida heat to head to downtown St. Petersburg. I wanted to walk around and get some photos with my new camera. And since Love really loves the area, it seemed like a win-win. Of course, it was INSANELY hot and it even rained briefly (like 5 minutes worth) […]

Holiday Weekend

Posted by miss m on Monday, May 28, 2012 @ 11:30pm in Blog, Car Issues, Entertainment, General Blather, Holidays, Love, Weather |

Been quiet around here the past few days because it was a 3-day, holiday weekend. Today (Monday, May 28th) is Memorial Day and a Federal holiday so most companies are closed, including Love’s. (Plus things like banks, post office, etc.) It’s also considered the “unofficial” start of summer here in the US. People BBQ and […]

Downtown St. Petersburg

Posted by miss m on Monday, April 23, 2012 @ 12:10am in Entertainment, General Blather, Love, Photography and Pics, Weather |

After a late start and braving rain, we made our way to downtown St. Pete this afternoon. We did wind up getting rained on, but only briefly. This is Florida after all, and in 10 minutes or so, the rain had given way to sunshine. There was an art festival going on but we got […]

Afternoon at the Beach

Posted by miss m on Sunday, April 8, 2012 @ 2:22pm in Entertainment, General Blather, Photography and Pics, Weather |

Yesterday the weather was beautiful. The kind of gorgeous day people think Florida always is like but in truth, rarely if ever actually has. It’s normally sweltering by April. But, the temperature was hovering around 80F (26C) and with low humidity plus a breeze, it was just lovely. We wanted to get outside and enjoy […]

Little Unexpected Perks

Posted by miss m on Thursday, March 29, 2012 @ 11:13pm in Entertainment, General Blather, Photography and Pics, Walt Disney World |

When you are a Disney fan, living a little over an hour away from Walt Disney World comes with obvious perks. Being a Florida resident means you can go for tiny money compared to the visitor who spends thousands for a week’s stay. (Honestly, you can go unlimited times throughout a year for $15/month as […]

A Little Bit of This and That

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, March 28, 2012 @ 12:03am in Entertainment, General Blather, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Saturday Didn’t do a lot over the weekend. Saturday I originally was going to meet up with an online friend for lunch but sadly, she hurt herself moving furniture the night before and had to reschedule. (Hope you’re feeling better, Jennifer!) So instead, we ran a handful of errands and rented The Help. It was […]

Bay area Renaissance Festival 2012

Posted by miss m on Sunday, February 26, 2012 @ 11:54am in Entertainment, Freebies Discounts Deals, General Blather, Love, Photography and Pics, Weather |

Yesterday, we hit the Bay area Renaissance Festival. The weather was absolutely perfect and we wanted to take advantage of that. It’s been a VERY hot winter and since the festival runs February – April, it only gets hotter. And a sweltering festival makes for a very miserable time. But yesterday…oh, it was glorious weather. […]

Christmas with Mickey

We headed out to Disney for a few hours on Saturday since the last time we went, I was getting sick and we wound up having to leave and missed the fireworks, the Osborne lights, etc. Then, we couldn’t go because of Love having surgery on his leg. But! Love was a trooper and nine […]
