Hello Florida!

Hello Florida!

It was a spur of the moment trip, a trip that was packed for in under 30 minutes and had a super early wake-up call of 2:30am! Who calls their brother up on Thursday to let him know that his little sister would be there tomorrow, with her husband, for the entire weekend?? I do! Ryan has been gone for a few weeks and wasn't going to be home for a few more weeks, so when I got word that a friend of mine was headed south, I took advantage of it! All in all, my weekend plans of sewing, decorating, cleaning, etc. went down the drain and my dreams of seeing my love and hanging with my bro were soaring high! I'm crazy in love I guess!

Well, all plans went down the drain as a result of some misconduct, I cried my eyes out, shook it off and went on a citrus tree hike with my brother and his girlfriend. It was a nice time. I had fun taking picture!

After some Florida sunshine, we went home to make dinner (that had been cooking all day) to realize that I could go on the ship and see my baby! With that, I was told to leave by my brother. I felt horrible leaving before dinner, but they understood.

I don't have any photos from the ship visit. Sorry. The highlight of the ship visit aside from seeing Ryan was the 2 hour foot massage and the re-realization that I am married to the love of my life. There are some moments when you are smacked in the face with the reminder that you are the luckiest girl in the world! I love those moments! We hadn't seen each other for weeks and weren't allowed to leave the ship, so we talked and talked and talked and it was glorious! I love him!

On Sunday, we went to Ross and I got a Green Tea Pot! Oh how I love this little joy! It isn't the exact color green I wanted, but it was in my budget and it was the best green one that I had found in a while, so I snatched it up! Needless to say, I have been drinking my fair share of tea these past few days! That evening, we went back on the ship and celebrated Valentine's Day! We brought cookies and Chips & Salsa and the guys ordered pizza! It was a real treat for them and nice for us!

4:30 am came early, but it was worth it. We hit the road and made a lovely stop at South of the Border!!!

It's a total dump. The signs saying "50 miles to South of Border", "10 miles to South of Border" etc. are way more exciting then the actual South of Border.

But...we had to be tourists and get our pictures with Pedro!

Now we are home and back in the grind...more to come on that...

Much love.


  1. Did you drive down by yourself? I never understood the whole "South of the border" place. Like you said, it's a dump and it never even looks like it's open? Do they get any business?

  2. I drove down with my friend/another wife of the ship, so it was much easier! Yea, it is a totaly dump and I don't know if people stay there or not. They used to, that's for sure. I actually stayed there with my entire family (aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents) when I was in grade school and my now-aunt and uncle got married. It was fun as a kid, but looking back, it was still a dump. I don't get it either, that's why we took pictures and stopped for gas!


I love comments!
