FL Vacation Report

Seriously, guys - there is SO much to catch you up on! Thanks for all the great tips on things to do here in Florida. :) 

Ok, for starters! 

My sister Mary kicked off Thursday's International Sun n Fun Fly-In air show with a smashing rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. So proud of her! You rocked it girlie! 

Thursday evening was topped off w/ dinner at a friend of a friends house near Orlando. Isn't that just too sweet?! I totally wish I had a picture of all of us (there were about 20 of us all together!) + a beautiful presentation of amazing home cooked food -- such a treat for when you're on the road! 

I love making new friends. :) 

Friday night = aerobatic and firework show! Don't you just love laying in the grass looking up in the sky?

Dinner was at a cute little place called Crisper's. :) I ordered the garden salad (no cheese, please!) w/ balsamic vinaigrette and split a margherita (tomato / garlic / basil) flat bread plate with a sweet sister. Hit the spot! 

Working out in the hotel gym! For some reason I really enjoy doing this on vacation. Maybe it's because I exercise at home on a normal schedule and this just something a little different. :) 

Saturday shopping! Couldn't leave this beach town without out swipin' a little plastic. :p 

And, just finished off another rousing dinner at a fantastic steak house with more friends! Love you Walsh family. =) 

Devouring this big of a bad boy with my sister Allie! Ooh- yeah, more than a perfect ending to a wonderful couple of sunny days! I am immensely blessed with crazy good friends and more!!! {including you!}. So, this was the Steak House's "chocolate stampede". Aaah- no kidding!!!!! 

Tons more stuff was on the agenda but these are the highlights. :) More may come out later . . . we'll see. :p 

Tomorrow I'm heading back to home and real life. Monday awaits! Comment and tell me what you're up to this wk/end!!!! I'd love to hear. :-)

My weekend is involving nothing special.
Just me, food, and my java homework.
Oh grad school is so much FUN I tell ya.
Please note the sarcasm :)

I'm so glad you had a great time in Florida! I was supposed to have my first beach day of the season today but it's pouring down rain! I guess I'll have a catching up on blogging and the DVR day instead. Have a safe trip home!

Looks like an amazing trip. Thanks for sharing it with us. You're not the only one who likes to work out on vacation. I always get up early to work out when I'm away. It's my "me time."
