Weekending


It was a weekend of sweet relaxation and not much on the agenda except a ladies night. Most of Saturday was spent relaxing and doing stuff around the house and then lounging at the pool even though it was a little overcast.


Saturday night was ladies night at my neighbor's house.  Cheese is my weakness so I offered to bring a cheese plate and decorated it with strawberries. All the while, Lola was just staring at me hoping some food would drop on the floor so she could vacuum it up.





We nibbled on some finger foods, drank way too much wine, played Taboo Midnight, and laughed the night away.



These ladies are so fun and funny to hang out with, I'm already thinking of hosting the next ladies night at my house sometime soon.


Lola woke me up way too early on Sunday but thankfully I felt rested and surprisingly didn't have a hangover.  I took the 4-hour online traffic school course for the stupid speeding ticket I got (my first speeding ticket ever) right outside my office. I paid the $175 ticket and opted to take the course to avoid getting 3 points on my driving record. Lesson learned!

Once I passed the exam, we made breakfast and I had a celebratory pineapple mimosa! K put together this Slow Cooker Honey Pork Roast recipe in the crockpot to cook for dinner and I did all the Sunday things - blogging, food prep, laundry, cleaning etc.

We ventured out in the afternoon to check out Boggy Creek Resort Park which is a hidden gem near to our home. It has cottages, a restaurant, cute novelty shop, a marina on the lake, and lots of campground for RVs etc.

Easter Weekend Getaway


We made our way over to Daytona Beach on Friday afternoon for a little weekend getaway. Not your typical Easter weekend but we both felt like some sunshine and relaxing were in order.


We checked into our hotel around 3pm and got settled admiring the ocean view from our room before heading out to explore.

 

We met up with some friends who were also visiting from Orlando and walked and walked (in the wrong direction) to go to a local Tiki Hut Beach Bar but finally made it there to grab a cold one. #Tourists.


After relaxing the feet for a bit, I browsed through some of the cute beach shops and even got a little airbrushed outfit for Lola.


In the evening we found this gem of a restaurant with the best rooftop seating area to hang out and enjoy the views.




Saturday morning was overcast so we had a slow but relaxing start to the day with some coffee and breakfast at the hotel. The sun started making her appearance so we decided to go for a 2-mile walk on the beach towards where all the shops and restaurants are.



 We stopped in Sloppy Joe's for a beverage and some coconut shrimp and then the heavens came pouring down so we were stuck there until the sun came out again.
 


Once the sun was out it turned into the most gorgeous day to walk around the Daytona beach boardwalk and just explore.






The last stop was at Ocean Deck for an early dinner and some live music. We were worn out with all the walking and a little too much sun so we went back to the hotel to call it a day.


I slept for almost 12 hours on Saturday night. Blame that on the comfy bed, blackout curtains, and of course all the sun we took in the day before. In fact I was looking like quite the lobster. 


On Sunday the weather was perfect to enjoy some sunshine by the pool before checking out of the hotel. We made one final stop for lunch at Ocean Deck before making the drive back home in the afternoon.


It was the perfect little getaway even though we didn't celebrate Easter but the relaxing, sunshine & change of scenery was just what the doctor ordered.

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.
