hope everyone enjoyed their memorial day weekend. by the looks of these pictures, you'd think we had beautiful weather, but it was stormy for most of the weekend. we did have some brief moments of nice weather, and we took full advantage of it.
how did you spend the long weekend?
movies and drinks. we saw the movie the other woman...it was fricken hilarious. the storyline was somewhat cliche and predictable, but still funny as heck. plus, i just love cameron diaz.
brought flowers to our loved ones on memorial day. so lush and green, but look at that cloud cover!
this gelato place, via gelato, replaced my beloved cafe where i used to get my coffee every saturday morning. mini-she wanted to treat me to birthday gelato, so we made our first visit.
the good: yummy, homemade, different flavors daily, generous servings (we both got keiki (kids) sizes, $3.50 ea. and couldn't finish it).
the bad: owner was on the phone discussing her orders. not a huge deal, but take it to the office, close the door...we don't need to hear about it while trying to enjoy your delicious gelato.
coffee in a waffle cone, cookies & cream in a cup.
finally checked Giovanni's off my list. everyone raves about this shrimp truck, so i had to try it. i don't get excited about shrimp, but when i do, it's usually battered and fried...so this boiled shrimp with lemon and butter was just ok for me. heard the scampi is the way to go.
the sun was blazing for about an hour. it started to drizzle, so we packed up. by the time we got to the car, it was pouring rain!
another food truck serving hot dogs + my favorite shave ice from the general store.
evidence of our stormy weekend.
