こんばんは。How’s it going? Did you have a nice Sunday?

Today we visited the site of a new Whole Foods 360 Market opening near our house. While the store actually opens in a few days, today there was a ribbon cutting, food trucks, giveaways, and other activities in the parking lot.

There were a lot of people, but it wasn’t overly crowded… I’d say it was just right. What made it really great was the fact that they had free beer! 🍻 Each person got two drink tickets which was plenty, especially since it was early afternoon. We enjoyed other freebies such as veggie burgers, gourmet pretzels, spicy sausage, chocolate, hummus, and a bunch of energy bars. We got pretty full…

And, we had fun taking pics in the cool photobus photobooth! A great way to spend the afternoon. 😄

The city we live in, Cedar Park, is a really nice place with some great shopping. Now we have Whole Foods 360, Costco, and In-n-Out, among other places. Really convenient. I’m so glad we decided to raise our family here.

I hope you had a good weekend!

こんばんは。How’s it going?

This afternoon at work, we had cupcakes brought in. But not just any ordinary cupcakes, but an actual cupcake bar! There were three cakes to choose from (chocolate, vanilla, or red velvet), two types of filling (chocolate or vanilla), and three types of icing (chocolate, vanilla buttercream, or strawberry). In addition, there was a big assortment of toppings, and even an edible glitter-spray. So fancy! What a nice treat for a Thursday afternoon. 🙂 I went back for seconds. 😆

I hope your day involved some sweet treats as well! 🍰

こんばんは。Today is Easter Sunday 🐰, and this is maybe the first time we didn’t do any kind of traditional Easter activities. The past couple years, we have just given the kids chocolate bunnies and Easter baskets, but this year we didn’t really think about it at all. As a non-religious family, the holiday doesn’t have any meaning to us in the traditional sense, but we did have some friends over to enjoy good food and conversation. 😄

Of course, I ate too much… but it was so delicious, I couldn’t help myself. Fun times!

こんばんは。How’s it going? Here in Austin, we’ve been having some heavy storms. It’s good for our yard, but there is the possibility of flooding in other parts of the area. Everyone be safe!

Today’s photo is of a yummy, garlicky shrimp dish that we enjoyed for dinner. As you can see, we disturbed our napping kitty in order to take the photo. But food photos with pets are really the best anyways. 🐱🍤

I hope you had a nice Tuesday.
