2017 Year Recap: January - April

I always love reflecting back on the year to remember all my adventures and whereabouts. 2017 was a great year filled with celebrations, travel, and fun with friends.

I finally met most of my neighbors and enjoyed hanging out with them on the weekends plus going out for a ladies sushi and wine night.

I completed the finishing touches of home decorating and posted a full home tour on the blog. Guest bedroom #2 and breakfast nook pictured below.

K and I went to see Florida Georgia Line in concert at the Amway Center which was a great show.

We made good use of our Universal Studios annual passes and spent many weekends exploring the two parks - Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios - while the weather was beautiful outside.

I spent many weekends lounging by the pool in our neighborhood enjoying the beautiful Spring weather.

The bestie came to visit to celebrate her birthday weekend and do some baby shopping. We shopped til we dropped, had lots of quality time and celebrated her birthday at Universal Studios for the Mardi Gras Parade.

We visited my in-laws in Sarasota to celebrate my MIL's birthday and headed over to Siesta Key Village for some seafood and daiquiris.

My company treated all employees to a mid-week Orlando Magic game in a nice suite.

We visited Daytona Beach with friends over Easter weekend.


Another fun wine and cheese night with the neighborhood ladies.

I hosted a girls get-together to celebrate our friend's first pregnancy (this was prior to their gender reveal party before we found out they were having twin girls).

So much fun packed into the first 4 months of 2017. Look out for Part Two coming soon...
