Christmas lights at Naples

I know Christmas is long over but I only now have time to post the pictures from my trip to Naples so here we go :).

This is a tradition, every year we bundle up..pile in to the car and drive down to Naples to eat at Dominicos and then walk the neighborhood to look at Christmas lights. On the way we saw Home Depot parking lots filled with trees (those are long gone now ūüė¶ ) and this lovely sign that was quite difficult to decipher..

But then we finally made it to Domincos!!!! Oh my does this resteraunt know how to make pizza..salad dressing..and everything else your little heart desires. That night we were desiring fried mozzarella sticks, fried zucchini, fried calamari, a salad and a pizza with everything on it. Not a very healthy meal but its the Holidays (I said that so many times last week) the pizza was amazing!!

Look at that picture, want that pizza…leap in to your¬†vehicle and race to Domincos in Naples to get a slice¬† because it was even better than¬†it looks.¬†After filling our¬†stomachs to capacity..we climbed out from behind our booth and exited the building..But I did manage to snap a picture of this awesome picture (it reminded me of my music appreciation teacher)

I found it quite awesome…NOW off to the lights!

Since it had been raining for hours before hand there were about 30 people out ..so instead of feeling like you were at Disneyland on the busiest day of the year it was like walking in the woods in the middle of nowhere. Now some of the pictures are stupidly blurry but it was freezing..I only had one free hand (i¬†had Starbuck’s mmm) so yup. First is a house that looked like a cottage from a fairytale

And dont worry no one was left out this glorious holiday season..;)

The little decorations the folks put out is so beautiful this was probably my favorite

I love this house..i take a picture every year

This little set up reminded me of Gimli from LOTR

And oh yes…Mickey was there as well.

Hands down..my favorite house!

I hope you liked the pics..and I hope everyone has an awesome New Years!!! ūüôā


Song of the week!! (:

Every night I walk my dogs but last night was different, I walked my dogs twice..I usually never do this but right when I was about to go to bed I saw outside my window how super foggy it had gotten and¬†I¬†just had to walk around in it. I got dressed, put the leashes on the dogs (who were pretty confused) and we walked outside for our adventure time. I love fog..especially when it is super thick just as it was last night (it was amazing I felt like I was walking in water). I love adventure, im absolutely obsessed with the Lord of the Rings because they get to go on an “epic” adventure and when I watch the movie it makes me feel like I got to go. Last night was my adventure…it may seem silly that just a little fog in my neighborhood is my adventure but what made the walk an adventure was¬†I¬†was seeing my neighborhood in a different way…which is probably the easiest way to have an adventure. I could barely see in front of me (it was as thick as that fog in that¬†Scooby doo episode where he cuts a slice and eats it haha)..but it was beautiful to see the christmas lights peek out through the fog..as well as the street lights peeking out through the trees creating long rays of light. The song that was stuck in my head while walking was this exact one…The banjolin song by Mumford and sons..its absolutley beautiful! The melody is so much fun and makes me want to go on that walk again, the lyrics are amazing (like always with this band) after listening to this song you will want to replay it over and over..

I hope everyone has an awesome week!!

(This picture is of my cat Hunter..he walks me and my dogs home every night after our walk haha even last night at the second walk in the fog he came and walked us home)
