You Know What They Say About Oyesters...And Big Boats.

But let's not go there, this blog is PG13. ;)
This weekend I finally got the kind of weekend everyone loves. It was full, fun, and still relaxing.
As I write this, the first summer storm is rolling in and I am completely content. 
Spring has arrived to South Florida and life is good!
Back to the weekend.
Saturday started lazy in the best way possible. Aka spending the first hot day in Florida getting my bronze on by the pool.



We stayed at the pool just long enough to be starving, and headed to dinner at our usual Friday spot. On a Saturday. Gasp.







We had margaritas, oyster shooters, and a giant pot full of clams and doused with a garlic-y goodness. If that doesn't sound like heaven, I don't know what does!
Just when I thought it wasn't possible, my night got even better when Erin and I had our second skype date of the weekend, this time with our men! I am so bummed I don't have a picture, but I swear it happened, and I can't wait for the 4 of us to fall in love in person in only a few weeks!!!
Then Sunday. Oh Sunday. The Palm Beach International Boat Show.


Basically, I got a pina colada and walked around the docks getting up close and personal with some of the biggest yachts I will always want and never have.  I have such a thing for boats. I could stare, ride or even just stand on a boat all day and be happy as a clam.
Oh, and Dom bought one for me too! I picked this one :)



It's called Diamonds Are Forever and it's approx. 220ft. long.


Okay, so that's a lie. But Dom's Uncle's friend's cousin really did own it (he just sold it for a bigger one), so that totally counts, right?
No worries though, I could settle for any one of these!











After we started to feel really poor and landlocked, we headed to the beach to solidify our bronze glow, I made dinner for once (paella!) and then it was time to relax on the couch to a thunder storm and Revenge. Like I said, happy as a clam.
Smothered in garlic.

  3. I love boats. Growing up, my uncle owned a marina, so I was lucky to be able to spend a lot of time on the water. I miss that! I also miss the summer at this point. But, it looks like it was a lot of fun :) (ps-I love oysters)

  11. I've never had an oyster and honestly had no desire to try one until I read this and saw the pics. I'm semi-intrigued haha! I'm also dying of jealousy over your sunshine and warmth... it's SNOWING in Ohio right now. Sad!

    Also- I have pics to prove our Skype-ing, don't you worry!!! :)
