Florida Day 5

We spent today at the beach.  It was beautiful and perfect in the morning :-)  by mid-afternoon it was cloudy and windy so we went to the hot tub to warm up.

This evening we got ready and went to Joe's Crab Shack  for dinner.  It was delicious. I ate waayyyy too much!

Sadly tomorrow we head to the airport for our trip home.

I've had a great time in Florida!

Florida Day 4

Today we got up early for a walk on the beach. All my gal pals drink coffee so they brought it along for the walk.

Me with our Florida BFF's.  

Today we spent the entire day at the beach.  This was my beach set up.

We did walk to the boardwalk to eat lunch on the pier.  The views at lunch were amazing.  

After lunch we did a little shopping and then went back to our hotel to rest and get ready for dinner.  This was our fancy dinner for the week so we all dressed up which was so fun! I had the lobster Mac and cheese which was fabulous!

I love this picture of all of us.

We have one more day at the beach before we head home on Wednesday.

Throwback Tuesday

November was a month filled with basketball and family.  Two of my favorite things :-)

One of Ava's friends is an aspiring photographer and she did a photo shoot of Ava and her friend Caroline before the start of the basketball season.  

Brock came home for Thanksgiving break.  It's always great to have him home.  I love this picture of him and grandma Jan.  

Brock also caught up on much needed sleep when he was home.  

We went to Tuning Stone for a Thanksgivong feast! 

Ava hosted a friends giving for all of her friends.  

And at the end of the month Ava's basketball season started.  My friend Lynn is a photographer and always takes great action shots of the kids at their games.  I'm so thankful for her and for these pictures!

Florida Day 3

Today we celebrated Easter!   Sabrina and I made these cute monogrammed beach bags for our besties. These bags were great at the beach today.

I got up bright and early and headed to Easter Mass. Melany drove me because she was headed to see her family for Easter.

When I got home Stephanie made us  Eggs Benedict.  It was fantastic!  

After breakfast we headed to the beach. 

It was warm and the sun was out we got a boogie board and rode the waves!

We also took pictures for hours hoping to get the perfect beach pose. 

Melany and Sara met us for dinner and I'm so thankful they'll be with us the rest of the week!  We just laugh so much when we are all together.  I love it!

We went to a delicious seafood place for dinner.  Here are three of my favorite people-Stephanie, Sara and Melany :-)

After dinner we rode the roller coaster on the boardwalk.  It was totally terrifying because it was such an old rickety ride.  Thankfully we survived the ride. 

Tomorrow is another beach day.  I can't wait! 

Crafty Wednesday

 Least week Sabrina and I got together to make beach bags for our best gal pals for our girls trip.  She found them online and got pink and blue for Easter.  The bags also have a speaker which is great for listening to music on the beach. We added vinyl Lilly anchors to the pocket  and our monograms to the bags.  It was a fun project.   Our friends love them!

Happy Wednesday

Florida Day 2

We woke today ready to head to the beach!

We took a quick selfie with our selfie stick before heading to lunch.

We went to a delicious bistro for lunch and I thought these purple flowers were gorgeous. We sat outside and it was beautiful!

My Florida bestie-I miss Melany so much and I'm thankful we get to be with her this week!

After lunch we headed over to see Sara and Josh.  Sara and Josh lived in NY until last summer.  I miss them too and I'm so glad we got to visit with Sara's family. 

Sara and Josh have two kids so it was fun to see them. They have grown so much in the last year!

One last picture with Josh before we headed to the beach!

We stopped by World Market before going to our hotel.  World Market is my new favorite store!  We all got all sorts of cute stuff.  Hopefully it all fits in my suitcase-ha ha! 

We headed to our condo after World Market.   It is 9 stories and we are on the top floor!  We have a beautiful view of the ocean.

Once we got settled we walked to the Boardwalk which is a mile from our hotel.  

Tonight we went to the grocery store and then we came back to our condo to relax and watch a movie.

It was a fun day!

Florida Day 1!

Today is the day my friends and I have been dreaming of for 6 months-our girls spring break trip to Florida!

Sabrina, Stephanie and I flew down from NY on Friday. We are so excited!

Our flight was delayed for 1.5 hours due to bad storms in Orlando so we ate an appetizer at a restaurant in the airport.

Sabrina made this funny collage of me while I was napping on the plane-ha ha!

We finally made it to Orlando and were reunited with our bffs!
This is the only picture the six of us got tonight but I'm sure we will take many more this week!

We had a dinner reservation for 10pm (way past my bedtime but we were on vacation!) it was amazing!

We took a lot of random pictures tonight because we were so happy to see each other! I love these girls and know we will have the best time this week.  

We went to a secret speakeasy and then took an uber back to our hotel at 2am.  I'm exhausted but I'm ready for a fun week ahead.  

The first day in Florida was a blast!
