1.) I spent the weekend in Bradenton again. It was fantastic (and I ate at this amazing Philly Cheesesteak place and also The Cheesecake Factory).
2.) I watched both Sicario movies. So good. I love movies and series about drug cartels and all the crazy stories that go with that (law enforcement, family issues etc etc..). YES! Er… wait. In movies!! Only ever in movies and series. And books. LOL!!! 😉 😂
3.) I brought my dogs with me for the weekend, and while one (Hobbit) LOVES car rides and is very calm during them, my sweet Pimmie is usually quite annoying in the car, and desperately wants to whine, can’t sit still, or sit on my lap (which is a big no for me). I can’t snuggle and drive. BUT! I have these special harnesses and seat belts that buckle right into our seatbelt-thingie, and they are magnificent! And in fact, Pimmie enjoyed the ride the entire way. She made me proud.
