FMTSO - Pink!!

As I read the theme for this week's shoot-out, I knew exactly where I would go!

The them this week is pink, and there is a building in town that I personally think qualifies!

Check this out:

Check out those windows!  They sure look pink to me.

I also went for a drive with my daughter in the Potwin area of Topeka.  In this neighborhood, there are wonderful old Victorian homes that have been restored and look beautiful.  I thought we might find pink there.

So Lovely!  How amazing are those?!?  I have always loved Victorian homes.  :)

Then, as we were driving, my daughter (the one with a birthday this weekend) grabbed the camera and shot these pink things.

I wasn't as convinced as she was that the truck is actually pink, but she wanted to get it anyway.  We were driving so it's a little blurry....

Then, before we headed home, we had to take advantage of one of my favorite things - Happy Hour at Sonic.  As we were in the drive through, we spotted this sign.

Perfect end to a relaxing afternoon outing!  To see the PINK in other towns around the world, check out the shoot out page!

Friday My Town Shootout


We are enjoying the overcast skies today - our high is only expected to get up to 91 degrees this afternoon.  What a relief!!  It is so surprising to me what a 10 degree difference makes!

Have a wonderful Friday!

Much Love,

Love the Victorian home. Thought I might find some in my town too, but nada. The light shining on some things does make them look different. At least you and daughter had a good day.

A multi coloured home, how cool is that? Flamingos my firm favourite though.

I love Happy Hour at Sonic too! :D Such good pictures. The truck might have been pink at a time. And I love the 2nd home pictured--reminds me of the house from UP!

I love Victorian Homes too. That is a great way to end the trip with a cool drink from sonic. Did you have a strawberry shake there pink?
