Peace. Love. Ice Cream.

It's back to reality tomorrow and I've spent today trying to catch up on my life. I actually posted twice on the teaching blog... who am I?

But let's not get to that when I haven't finished telling you about Florida yet :)

We went to more delicious restaurants...



Things also got a bit more "Florida" when the weather warmed up a bit. We went on an airboat ride in the Everglades. Did you know the Everglades is not just swamp land, it's a river? The widest river on earth. That's your fun fact for the day!




On New Year's Eve Day we went to Hollywood FL Beach to run the boardwalk...





Now it looks like Florida, right?

New Years Eve night we headed to a great Italian restaurant on South Beach. I've heard SO much about South Beach, but I could never really picture it in my mind...







But the night was not over, soon it was time to head to the Seminole Casino for a Beach Boys concert...


Yes, yes that IS Uncle Jesse, the highlight of the concert for the Full House fans among us.

Happy New Year!!!


It was a lovely vacation, and I have to admit I'm not ready to be back yet. But I can't really complain, I've already started the countdown to my next vacation!

How was your New Years? Anyone else back to work tomorrow?

  5. Looks like it was a great trip! Good luck facing really tmrw. Ugh to working!

  6. I love the title of this post! :)

    Nice blog. I seen your previous post and am insanely jealous. I would give my left arm to go to AZ! ...well, maybe not my arm...or any of my limbs actually - I should keep them, maybe (maybe) the tub of ice cream in my freezer...maybe ;)

  7. OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just swooned. So jealous you got to see Uncle Jesse!!!!!!!!!!! lol

    Can you tell we're in the same demographics!?!?!

    Did you know he was going to be there ahead of time?

    No. Seriously. I'm dying!!!!

  8. Love that you saw the Beach Boys AND Uncle Jesse was there :-) How fun!

  9. Uncle Jesse?!? I have to say, age has really done well for him. He is a fox.

  10. EEEi. Alligators scare me!

    Those pictures are definitely looking more Florida-ish ;) Now I believe you were really there hehe!

    Looks like a great vacation! I am back to work tomorrow. Kind of sad about it but also kind of looking forward to getting back to my routine!

  11. I'm already back at work. Ugh. But I had a nice NYE with a friend, so it's all good!

  12. I am glad the weather warmed up for you guys! Looks like an awesome trip. Gosh your time off went so darn fast! Hope your first day back at work goes well and the adjustment isn't too tough. So tough to come back from a vacation!

    I had a good NYE. I went to my aunt & uncle's for dinner so it was a low key night.

  13. As you were taking the picture of you and the pink car, Eric and I decided you would have only done that for the blog : ) but it turned out really cute! haha

  14. Awesome pictures! I love the punk Bug, it's just your style!
    I can't believe that's uncle Jesse. To be honest, I had no idea he was a rocker in real life. My bad.

    Glad you had a nice vacation. You look great in all the photos and I love the purple shirt. I'm a huge fan of purple, especially that dark purple you are wearing!
