Blogtober: Best Vacation Ever!

Vacations, vacations. Is there ever such a thing as too many? Overruled! I say this to anyone who advises yes.

While my favorite vacay memory is a toss up from NYC, (you remember the one where Hunter and I were almost arrested in an underground purse ring bust? No? Please refresh your laughter/fear altimeter here), or our first New Orleans visit together, I shall go with.......



Nawlins for the win!

This was the best because it was the first vacation Hunter and I ever took together; New Orleans is an amazing city full of heart, love, and damn delicious food; and we just happened to wake up on our second day to find snow, which happened to be the first time in 20 years it snowed there! We, as two born and raised Florida kids, had never, ever experienced this mythical creature known as snow. Hunter had only seen flurries in Alabama and I had nada. Very exciting to say the least, and far too cold for my sunshine state living self.

Note to self: Never pick up a snowball with cotton gloves


How many people can say they have a snow encrusted picture of this?


Snowball fight obvi




Making frands wherever we went


It was so much fun that we went back exactly one year later with a friend and had yet another amazing time, minus the snow. We should go back 20 years from that first visit and see if it happens again. Hmm...14 hour road trip?? Again?? Perhaps, or perhaps I could just scratch Hunter's eyes out in the comfort of our own living room. Because I don't care who you are, who you're with, spending that amount of time in the car with the same person will draw the devil right out of ya.

Totally kidding. Don't we look happy? This was the last day of the trip as we were leaving the city:


Tell me, was your favorite vacay hot or cold in temp?

Until we meet again,

    1. It was cool and a complete fluke we were there when we were. I need a warm vacay right about now too :)

  3. I want to visit NOLA. I didn't know it snowed there. How awesome! It's like the weather people knew you would be visiting and wanted you to experience snow!

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!


Til we meet again,

Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink -Lilly Pulitzer

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
