Flashback to Florida

Life

I realized that the last time I posted, I was in Florida; yet I never posted about Florida.

Here are a few of my favorite photos and memories from the glorious trip to Somewhere Warmer:

Trip highlights:

With one wedding and a few trips under my belt, it’s safe to say that summer is in full swing!

I got to take a girl trip last week. We went to Florida and it was as hot as it was fun. I loved taking some time to simply BE with some people I love.

We ate good food (think: fish), did some successful shopping (dressses!) and I shamelessly took some naps (indoors and outdoors).

Vacation Recap

Uncategorized

I spent the majority of last week in Florida, which was both pleasant and relieving. I’m telling you, it’s been exhausting; moving, starting a new job, and transitioning into a new phase of live (all during the worst winter of my life-and I don’t think I’m exaggerating here). I’m not sure I’d been TRULY WARM for an entire six month period, from mid-October until my Florida trip, so feeling warm was great.

I loved my time in the sun, eating good meals, and long walks on the beach (predictable much?)

I like to think I’m good at vacation.

My Mama Taught Me How To Shop

Uncategorized

If there’ such thing as being a skilled shopper, my mom is it. In high school, we spent many Friday nights in the malls and let me tell you-my mom finds the deals! Shopping is often a big part of our vacations, too. I love this picture of my sister and mom outside one of our favorite Florida stores.

Hot 10 Summer Countdown

Uncategorized

Without even trying to have a perfect number I conveniently came up with ten highlights of summer 2013:

1: Annie’s Bachelorette Party. I loved hanging out with all the ladies and having a really fun time just being together. Planning the bash with my BFF Kate was fun, too. And of course the “Bride In The Middle!” pictures.

2. Annie and Travis Getting Married. I loved the wedding, and the reception was exceptionally fun, too. What a beautiful day and a great couple!

Image

 

3. Going Up North. Of course if we have to get specific, going up north for the Fourth is the best, but in reality I loved each visit to the northern woods.

Image

 

4. Megan and Ben’s Wedding. July 13 was a long anticipated day, and there were so many special elements to the whole wedding weekend. Standing up for the couple was a true honor, being able to visit with most of my close friends was great, and flying by myself was a new experience! Image

5. Florida Georgia Line for cheap at a county fair. Somebody in our group discovered a freakishly short line to get in, too, which was clutch.

Image

6. Ten Years of Jilli And The Overheads. Our “band” happened just a few weeks ago, but I loved seeing some good friends and creating lots of memories throughout the week.Image

 

7. Establishing the Cteve Hut. Have I mentioned that our apartment adviser/coordinator is my new best friend? Yeah we talk… #kiddingnotkidding ha. Anyway Cteve Hut is great and it breaks my heart a little that I can’t just be there.

8. Seeing Danielle punctually after her engagement. I am glad it worked to meet up with Danielle. Fun fact- she’s my only college friend I have visited every summer 🙂

Image

 

9. I Hope It Rains video with Lauren & Jilli. I love when the two sets of sisters get together, and though our locations and schedules disagreed for most of this summer, we are hopeful to begin regular hangout times again in the future.

Image

10. Girl Trip to Florida. I hardly know what to even say about this one. We did a lot of shopping, sun-time…and the eight of us drove everywhere in a seven passenger SUV. Honestly, the trip was perfect.

Image

 

I just know there are memories to be made for the rest of 2013; I’m so excited to discover whatever may come my way!

I took a trip to Florida with some of my favorite girls. We took lots of pictures (and walks along the beach!), went shopping, ate delicious food, chatted, laughed, got a little too close to a few chameleons, etc etc. A great time was had by all!
