Friday Shoot Out- Temptations are all around.

Friday Shoot Out

What temps us to do things that would be better not done.
These are my temptations.
Especially sweets.
Over buying.
Over physical activity.
Flying off in the wild blue yonder.
Went shopping for art and craft supplies on Saturday.
Dee's Crafts
not only had all the amazing Christmas displays and supplies but an anniversary was being celebrated and cake was everywhere.

I did good and passed that up.

Ribbon is a real temptation for me.
I like to have every color on hand, just in case.
Passed that up cause the pay out line was too long and I only had a few minutes before the play started that I had come to attend.

Miles and miles of ribbon.
Love it.

Tons and tons of Christmas tree decorations.
Nice hefty price for the tree and decorations.

While I was waiting in the parking lot for my family to arrive, my heart ached to slide down this little item. I could not even fit between the sides. Lol
Wonder if I would have done it if I could have?
Good way to twist an already degenerative couple of vertebrae.

This vapor trail reminded me how I used to love to travel. Sometimes I am tempted to just board and fly into the wild blue yonder. Dun ta da.
However, by the time we got to dinner could not resist this chocolate and caramel tart with ice cream.

One out of seven, ain't bad.

I am grateful today for the wonderful rain we have had in the last few days.
Even if it is colder than I like.

Go here for more FSO.

My eating temptation isn't so much overeating, although it is to some extent, but eating too much of the bad stuff that is so good. Like the bag of chips that I finished late last night.

Yep, one out of seven isn't bad at all. You have a strong will. LOL
I'm always tempted to buy Christmas stuff. I love Christmas.

You were soooo good to resist all those temptations! You definately deserved the One Guilty Pleasure of the Chocolate and Caramel Tart with IceCream. I couldn't have resisted that either...and I probably would have tried the slide. Great ShootOut!

I can't wait to see your Antiques!

I'm a baaad gal. Check out this temptation at Kroger, Private Selection brand ice cream in Sea Salt Caramel Truffle. I have scaled back but only after I went through three containers in a flash.

Hi Queenie!
God bless you. Lifted you up in prayer. May healing touch your body!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and sweet life.

Home for the Holidays,

I can never resist anything chocolaty!

Karin said...

And the temptation you gave in to is just a good portion of dessert. A person's gotta eat!

Doreen said...

the last tree with the hefty price is gorgeous! I would be very tempted to get that.
