Weekend Happenings


The weather really warmed up for us in Central Florida so it was a sunny weekend although I opted for lots of relaxing and catching up on sleep.

Super Bowl Weekend


I'm not going to lie and say I'm big into football. I actually know very little about the sport despite being married to one of the biggest football fans ever but, when someone throws a party, I'm all about the mingling. This is how the weekend played out...

Weekending: A Picture a Day

Keeping it short and sweet today since that's pretty much how the weekend was. Always too short right?

2017 Year Recap: May - August


I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday on Monday and got to spend time with your loved ones. I shared Part One of my 2017 Adventures last week so here goes Part Two...

Birthday Blessings


We celebrated my birthday a little early last weekend brunching with friends but today, December 13th, is my birthday. K and I plan to go out for a quiet dinner tonight since it's a school night so the celebrations were best for the weekend.

Kicking Off The Holidays


Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, I've started getting into the Christmas spirit with some gift shopping, several upcoming holiday parties with friends, and planning our Winter Wonderland company holiday party for about 200 people.

Thanksgiving Celebrations


It's unbelievable to think that Thanksgiving was just a week ago and now we're diving into the Holidays (my favorite time/month of the year)! 

Winery Weekend


It was a relaxing weekend with some fun with friends on Saturday. The weather was cool and crisp so it's definitely feeling like Fall in Florida and I'm not complaining. My parents and sister arrive on Friday so I spent a good amount of the weekend getting our house organized and stocked up with food and lots of wine!

Weekend Celebrations


Friday
I happened to be downtown for a work meeting in the morning so I treated myself to some delicious tapas for lunch at Kasa Restaurant.

 

Long Weekend Celebrations


 
What an action-packed weekend! Thankfully we have a short work week ahead. A friend from Boston was in town visiting over the long weekend so we definitely kept busy showing him a good time around Orlando. It's always fun playing tourist in your own city as he did the same for us when we went to visit him in Boston back in June.

Weekend Happenings


The weekend was a mix of relaxing and fun over here. After work on Friday I met up with K for a quick happy hour drink and then Thai takeout for dinner.

Weekend Whereabouts


It was a gloomy weekend in Orlando which was the perfect excuse to be productive around the house and just enjoy some R&R. I was hoping to catch some rays of sunshine by the pool but that didn't happen with the overcast weather and flashes of lightning.

Baby Shower/Gender Reveal Party Planning


This weekend was a relaxing one. Much needed after our Boston travel adventures last weekend. Other than lots of relaxing, getting my car detailed, and being productive around the house, we attended a Gender Reveal party yesterday.

Friday Faves


On Fridays I like to reflect on the positives from the week - special occasions, people that make me happy, fun events, things I think are humorous or worth mentioning, and many random favorites sprinkled in between. K has been gone on a work trip since Tuesday so I'm looking forward to spending a relaxing weekend with him since I'm sure he's exhausted.

Weekend Relax and Recharge


It was a weekend filled with much needed R&R and some fun with friends.

Friday Faves

 

This cute little nugget joined our team at work on Monday morning. We call him a therapy dog (because of pure cuteness) not to be taken literally. He is as sweet as can be but we need to get over the potty training stage as with all puppies.

Weekend Whereabouts


The weekend was one of pure relaxation. I slept in until 10:30 on both Saturday and Sunday mornings so you could say I feel fully rested and ready to get this week rolling.

Weekend Entertaining

'

Every week brings a new adventure in life whether big or small...Often times my life can be full of action and then the pause button comes to even things out. This weekend was one full of entertaining family and friends.

Sweet Weekend Sunshine


I hope everyone had a great weekend! The weather was beautiful here with lots of sunshine so I'm hoping it sticks around for as long as possible.

On Saturday we made our way over to Florida's west coast to visit friends and family for a well overdue trip and to celebrate a few different occasions. The first stop was to visit baby Cam and catch up with some good friends.





The weather was perfect for a pool party and getting some sunshine.



Catching up with some of my favorite girls and getting to hold baby Cam was so good for the soul.

After the pool we headed over to Siesta Key Village, one of my favorite beach towns on earth. Siesta Key beach has to be one of the prettiest in Florida, although we didn't get to enjoy it on this trip.


We met up with some friends to celebrate a birthday and enjoy some delicious seafood for dinner. Whenever we're in the Village, Daiquiri Deck is always a must stop for some refreshing frozen cocktails especially after a day in the sun.




We spent the rest of Saturday evening at my in-laws house catching up with them and finally getting a good night of sleep.

We had a relaxing Sunday morning drinking coffee and lounging around at my in-laws house. We then all went out for lunch along with my SIL and her husband to celebrate my precious MIL's birthday at one of our favorite restaurants in Sarasota.



After lunch we made the drive back home to get all the usual Sunday things done before the start of the work week. As I mentioned before, it was a well overdue trip to K's hometown and I'm glad we got to see and spend some time with family and friends.

Spring Weekending


The weekend was glorious. I got to catch up on some R&R and enjoy the beautiful warm weather. It feels like Summer already in Florida during the day but I'm liking the cool Spring nights.


The weekend started off with a little happy hour after work with one of my girl friends. Nothing beats some refreshing Mojitos and some girl time catching up on life and such.



One of K's friends came into town with his pup for the weekend and stayed with us on Friday night. When I got home from my little happy hour, the guys went out to grab dinner and I stayed home puppy sitting Lola and her new friend, Soda. Thankfully they got along great and wore each other out playing for hours.



Saturday morning was perfectly relaxing catching up on some blogging and a few shows on TV. I headed out for my massage appointment which was much needed for this achy back of mine and got a few errands done afterwards.


On Saturday night we watched the movie Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee which was pretty interesting even though it didn't have the best ratings. I'm always intrigued by crazy, real-life stories like this one.


 On Sunday I slept in until about 10am. Glorious! I then got dolled up to meet up with another girl friend for lunch but she wasn't feeling well so I convinced K to go out for a quick bite and so he could watch some sports. Baseball is boring as hell so I had fun trying out all the fun SnapChat filters.


We only stayed out for an hour or so and then got into our swimsuits to enjoy some sunshine by the pool. The weather was hot, hot, hot - like 90 degrees - so we didn't last too long out there but still got some good Vitamin D and hopefully some color with SPF 50's approval.
