Last Few Florida Days!

It is so scary to think that Dom and I have less than 2 weeks left in Florida, so this past weekend we really tried to have the best time and squeeze every bit of sunshine out of every minute we could.  For the Fourth, two of Dom's fraternity brothers who live in Ft Lauderdale and Miami came up (with a puppy!) for some golf, grilling, and fireworks!
I stuck to the sparklers and let the men handle the big ones.  I've decided it's my lot in life to be surrounded my men at all times, and you know what? I don't hate it.  I can't remember the last time I had to open a jar. ;)  Anyways, the fireworks were a little anti-clamactic, but they were fun to set off! Of course, by "setting off" I mean waiting for the guys to count down and running away as quickly as I could. 

Friday was a bit painful, as this little lady decided that doing shots of Jack Daniels was a good idea on a school night.  Poor life let's just skip to the weekend!

Saturday, we packed the beach bag and assumed our usual beach bum positions.
We baked, we bronzed, we snoozed.  Life was good. :)
That night I did my favorite summer pastime, sipping on a crisp refreshing cocktail, while Dom did his favorite summer pastime, grilling a delicious (and healthy) dinner!
We may or may not have been in bed by 10:30...and it was awesome!
It's a good thing we got so much rest, because Sunday we decided (okay, so Dom decided and I finally agreed) to go paddle boarding!
 Wowza. That was a workout.
We started by going against the current, through the channel where all the boats/yachts were passing by, and I may or may not have cried that I was about to die. 
After what felt like ages we made it to Peanut Island, were tons and tons of boats, jet skis, and paddle boarders dock on the sandbar and partayyy.
We didn't bring out phones so they wouldn't get soaked, but this is what it looks like.  Yesterday was only a little calmer than when this picture was taken!

Definitely worth the ride out there!
After getting more sun than two people ever should, we hopped back on our boards and rode back!
This time, we just stood up and let the waves bring us in.  I liked that direction much better.

We finished off the day with sushi, a walk around our neighborhood, and a little Anthony Bourdain.  I could not have asked for a better almost last weekend in Florida!

  8. I can't say that PA has any beaches quite like that - but, we do have several rivers, lakes, and bodies of water that you can play in and tan beside :)

  9. I love paddle boarding!! But, I go on lakes by my house that are not allowed to have motorized boats, so way less waves and not as scary. :) Your weekend looked perfect. Also, love the blue shirt! Where is that from?

  10. Why are you always so adorable?! Glad you guys are soaking up that Florida sun while you can!! Paddle boarding looks like a blast! I am sooo sore just from TUBING over the weekend- I can't imagine what I'd feel like if I tried that haha!

  11. I have always wanted to try paddle boarding! Maybe we will someday!

  12. It looks like you had such a fun weekend! I just caught up with your blog - how exciting that you're moving to Pennsylvania! I'm a native and I love this place so, so much - but I've never lived at the beach, so I guess I'm biased...

  13. sounds like your weekend was a blast! I wish my days consisted of bumming it on a beach. Maybe one day I'll get to live close to one... one day. and I know what you mean about being surrounded by men. That's what I got myself into by being a military wife. They are messy but I can't complain. They help out alot!

  14. So much fun!! I hate that you have to leave Florida (because I feel like you belong there) but am SO happy for your new adventure! xo
