Plan the Perfect Vacation on the Emerald Coast

I recently had the opportunity to visit the Emerald Coast for the first time! I've been to the gulf before but this was my first experience in the panhandle. I love all things Florida so I couldn't wait to get down there and stick my toes in the sand! Thankfully my hotel, the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Ft. Walton Beach, let me do just that! Thanks to my gulf view room I was able to see the … [Read more...]

#WW Florida Pictures

When you go on vacation with no kids you come home with very little photos. My camera just wasn't worth taking with us most of the time so I just stuck to Instagram most of the time. However I did take it out when I visited the piers. We never were able to get a good sunset. They would start and then get swallowed by clouds. I'll still take it though. Marco Island bridge. Water … [Read more...]

Wordful Wednesday {secret trips}

I went to Florida for a week and didn't tell you. I know, I know but we do it for security reasons. There is just something about announcing hey I'm leaving my house unattended for a week that doesn't sit right so I'm telling you know. So if I seemed a bit stressed or didn't post as much- that's why. Of course a few of you caught the location stamp on some of my facebook posts ;) I still have … [Read more...]

The St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park in Florida

Remember my recent trip to Daytona Beach, FL for my cosuin's wedding? Well, we ended up with one day that we didn't have anything scheduled. We went down to the hotel lobby and looked through 101 different pamphlets to try and decide. My Dad happened to call me while we were looking and said don't bother with those. Take a drive about an hour north to St. Augustine and visit the The Alligator Farm … [Read more...]

While I could go on and on with all the great Florida photos I got. I shared a bunch with you yesterday here. My favorite picture of just the boys I haven't shared is this one: However, this post is more of my favorites from our trip that didn't have to do with being in the sand or water. This was one day after coming off the beach we got ice cream off the pier. Thankfully it was warm enough to … [Read more...]

Florida Fun!

Last week the family and I was away on vacation. It was definitely a much needed vacation. This week I'm struggling to get my groove back on so bare with me. I have tons and tons of laundry, cleaning, and mail/email to catch up on. In the meantime I thought sharing some photos with you would be a good start. I didn't take nearly as many as I normally do. Johnny fights me every chance I get so I … [Read more...]

{Almost} Wordless Wednesday – Sting Ray!

When we went on vacation there is one moment that I will never forget! It was when johnny and I found a sting ray in the water on Sanibel Beach, FL! We almost didn't believe that we saw it! Johnny was petrified to stand near it! I begged him too just so I could get this great picture! I followed it all around. I rubbed it's fins on several occasions. This was my favorite beach we visited … [Read more...]
