florida

It has been entirely too long since I have written, and for that, I apologize. On the other hand, I spent the past week and a half on vacation and purposely tried to stay away from the computer as much as possible, and for that, I couldn’t be more happy. After spending a weekend down south with Whitney’s family and friends, we dropped off Kip in Houston with my mother and made the drive to Florida. Now normally, that ride wouldn’t be so bad. However, on the way to Florida, our drive was prolonged by 2 1/2 hours due to a flat tire and somehow always finding our way stuck in traffic. We skipped the flat tire on the way home, but the traffic still didn’t leave us alone. But I must say that this vacation was very much needed and oh so relaxing. I had never been to Florida before, and though we didn’t spend as much time on the beach as I hoped for, we ate good food and did something different every day. I’ll leave you with some photos to drool over πŸ˜‰ (the food, that is).

After a prolonged drive to Florida, this pepperoni/sausage/pineapple pizza from Jordanno's really hit the spot the night of our arrival.
Yummy french toast with bacon and eggs from Broken Egg Cafe at the wharf.
Whitney's crab cake breakfast with delicious garlic bread. A good way to sum up this trip: "too much food".
The view from our balcony. We were fortunate enough not to have to pay for this place to stay!
Our cute lil' kitchen area. That fridge and microwave came in handy with all of our leftovers!
The room. That bed was the comfiest.
Glasses to make drinks along with recipes. Unfortunately we didn't get around to doing this.
Beaching it. I don't know what we would have done without those umbrellas!
My first time to try raw oysters. Not much flavor, I have to say.
Whitney's crab legs from Stinky's Fish Camp! On our way to Seaside, the town where they filmed The Truman Show.
My fried oysters and shrimp! So much fried food this trip...I'm sure I gained some weight.
Poolside. With complimentary hammocks. πŸ™‚
More fried. The remains of my fried oyster sandwich at a place called Hogg's Breath Cafe. A lot of oysters this trip, but hey, when you're in Florida, you have to eat seafood!

I will try not to go two weeks without writing again. If it was up to me, I would take photos, write, and bake all day every day if someone would pay me to do it (hint!) Now it’s back to real life and finally getting back to the gym and decorating my house.
