Twin Pumpkins Turn 1


The weekend was relaxing and productive which is always much needed between all of our travel adventures and busy work schedules but the highlight was celebrating my favorite twinsies 1st birthday yesterday.

Adventures in Austin, Texas


Austin has been on my travel wish list for several years now and we finally made it over there for Labor Day weekend to celebrate K's birthday.

She's Such a Unicorn

It was a fairly quiet and much needed relaxing weekend. The extent of my fun was at unicorn-themed 1st birthday party on Saturday, where I played musical chairs for the first time in about 25 years. Oh to be a kid again!



The birthday girl looked adorable in your unicorn getup and was a good sport with all the attention directed her way. She happens to be my favorite neighborhood baby because she's so easygoing and cute all around.

Neighborhood Pool Bash + Birthday Brunching



Before all the kids start school this week, our neighborhood organized a community pool party with a DJ, Food Truck, and Ice Cream Truck to all get together on Saturday.

Weekending - Mid July


Rest, relaxation, some shopping and fun with friends pretty much sums up the weekend.

Long Weekend Rain and Some Shine


Since our return from the Cuba cruise on Wednesday last week, we were in need of a low key weekend to relax and get stuff done around the house. Plus with the weather forecasted to be rainy all weekend, we kept our plans at minimum.

Easter Weekend


We had a fun-filled long weekend spending time with family and friends in Sarasota.

I hope everyone enjoyed Easter and had a good weekend. I'm linking up with The Blended Blog ladies today sharing a fun Spring Q & A.

The Weekend with Sunshine & St Patrick's Day


The weather has been all over the place lately but ended up warm and sunny during the day on Saturday and Sunday. I actually woke up on Sunday morning hustling to get ready for work thinking it was Monday, then to realize it's still the weekend so I crawled right back into bed and slept until 9:30. Bliss!

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

2017 Year Recap: September - December


Sharing the last part of my 2017 Adventures series.

Here's Part one and Part Two, which were both action packed with travel, celebrations, and fun with family/friends.

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.

Weekend Celebrations


Good morning all!

It was an eventful weekend with some pampering and lots of celebrating with friends.

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.

 

August 2017 Recap

What's New With You

Current Updates

If you've been watching the news, you probably already know that Hurricane Irma is heading her way to Florida. We are as prepared as can be with food, water, and other supplies but you just never know how strong it will be.

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 Happenings + TBB Asks


We meet again on this Monday morning so I hope your coffee is strong and the week goes by quickly. I had a great weekend but it's never long enough, right? I got off work a little early on Friday so I finally made it over to the new Nordstrom Rack to do some browsing and a little shopping, nothing crazy.

Weekend Happenings


We meet again on this Monday morning which means it's time to recap the happenings from the weekend. I hope you enjoyed yours!

My weekend turned out to be more relaxing and productive than expected.  I'm usually too exhausted from the work week to do anything on Friday nights but somehow I had a small pop of energy so K and I met up at Carrabba's for a quick happy hour followed by a delicious dinner.


Carrabba's is definitely one of my favorite Italian chain restaurants because of their Chicken Bryan dish which is topped with goat cheese and sundried tomatoes. That and the mussels are so good!


I mentioned on Friday that it turns out I have Tendonitis in my right foot so I have to wear the boot of doom for two weeks. Right foot = driving foot so my mobility is limited or at least very inconvenient with this big bulky thing.


Kate and I had plans to meet up with a girl friend on Saturday for a wine & apps picnic by the lake. Unfortunately our friend came down with a high fever and had to cancel so plans changed and I went out with K to do some shopping and errands.

I restocked on some of my favorites from Bath & Body Works. We go through those foam soaps so quickly and I can't live without their small hand sanitizers to keep in my purse, car, and for traveling.


Saturday evening I worked on so many projects from blogging to photography along with stuff for work and I finally made the Green Tea Body Scrub created by Alexis from the Chemistry Cachet. I like the idea of a natural body exfoliator and the rose water gives it a nice scent.


On Sunday afternoon we went to a baby's 1st birthday party for our friend's son. It was nice catching up with a few friends and seeing everyone's babies as they grow before your eyes.

On Sunday night we tried our hand at grilling lamb chops for the first time. Lamb is one thing I've never attempted to cook but K whipped up an amazing marinade and the lamb with smashed cauliflower and caesar salad for the sides couldn't have been a better Sunday night dinner.
