London Ladies Trip

A big part of my decision to finally make it across the pond was because my BFF and God Daughter recently moved to England so I wanted to fit in some girl time on the trip.

Best Weekend with The Bestie

Where do I begin? It was an awesome weekend with the Bestie. I picked her up from the airport on Friday afternoon and we got right down to shopping at the Florida Mall for maternity and baby things.
I was ecstatic to be asked to be Baby S's Godmother with this cute card and got to feel her wiggle around and kick all weekend long!

We celebrated C's birthday that night with some Thai food for dinner and cake for dessert!

On Saturday morning we got some more baby shopping out of the way and had a delicious lunch at Pom Pom's Cafe.

In the afternoon we headed over to Universal Studios to have some fun. Unfortunately most of the rides weren't fit for expecting moms but we did go on some baby rides, catch some shows, and enjoyed exploring Harry Potter's Diagon Alley. The weather was beautiful for a day at the park.


In the night we watched the Mardi Gras parade and caught tons of beads which was lots of fun.


After the parade we were starving so we went over to Antonijtos to have some delicious Mexican for dinner and enjoyed some table-side made guacamole and fajitas.

After dinner we were exhausted with a capital E so it was time to call it a night.

I slept in and relaxed a bit on Sunday morning before heading out to do some final shopping with C. We grabbed a yummy lunch at Marlow's Tavern and got a few errands done.

Today she heads back home and I'm off to work but my heart is happy after such a fun-filled weekend with lots of quality time together.

I'm now SO looking forward to meeting Baby S and traveling home for her Christening in December.

Joining the lovely Biana.

Bestie Weekend Loading...

I'm skipping St Patrick's Day celebrations this weekend because the bestie arrives today so I'm off to pick her up from the airport in a few hours.

Today is her birthday so that's what we'll be celebrating along with the fact that she has a healthy baby cooking in the oven so lots of baby shopping and girl time is on the agenda.

This Auntie couldn't be more ecstatic and already got to shopping once we found out the gender a couple weeks ago.

I'll be back next week to share our girls weekend adventures.

Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend everyone!

10 Girlfriend Getaways

We all know adult life gets busy but one thing that makes me ecstatic is spending time with my closest girls. The whole process of planning a trip is exciting and then all that anticipation leading up to it. I just love it.

The bestie and I recently took a long weekend trip to Cocoa Beach where we just relaxed and spent time catching up. While we were lounging on the beach, we started chatting about doing a couples trip to Europe where we would explore a few countries and then take a cruise through the Greek Islands. This is a dream trip for the both of us and something we hope to make happen when finances and the time is right.

Until then, long weekend getaways and smaller trips are still in the cards so I was researching some destinations that would be fun to visit with your best friend or even a group of girls - whether it may be to relax & unwind, explore the food scene, or take in some good old nature.

San Juan, PR


Savannah, GA

Nassau, Bahamas 

Sonoma Wine Country, CA

Treasure Island, FL

Bonus Road Trip to Tampa: 
Tampa is only a short drive away from Treasure Island so if you happen to visit in late January hop over to check out their annual Gasparilla Pirate Festival. This is one of my favorite street festivals in Florida and Tampa goes above and beyond to put on a fun show.


Charleston, SC

New Orleans, LA

New York City


San Francisco, CA

I'd love to hear your recommendations for fun/relaxing girl friend getaways!

I can't end this post without saying:

Happy birthday Kate!
2016 is going to be an extra EXCITING year for you and I'm looking forward to celebrating your birthday when I return from my trip this weekend! xo
