I'm Baaaaa-ck!! What an amazing vacation we had. It was filled with sun, beach, relaxation and rest. It was definitely a needed vacation. Here we go with the numbers recap...
1 - 14 lb fat Bailey cat left in Indiana. =( He tried to be a stole away but I caught him in my luggage. He got to stay at grandma Kathy's.. yeah, she brushed him, has super huge windows in her house and pet him while he ate.. he doesn't like us anymore. Wouldn't pay any attention to me last night. =( So sad.
1 - road kill seen in Tennessee that is hard to believe... A BLACK BEAR!! No joke.
1 - 1st anniversary celebrated =)
1 - Cake topper that survived a 1,000+ mile trip to Florida in a cooler. And it was GOOD, real good!!!
room 808 - On our anniversary, our room number at the hotel was 808... Significant because we met at a church called Downtown at 808. Such a cool coincidence!
1- extremely perfect anniversary gift given by Darin. Our wedding photographer had a friend starting up a videography business and asked us if he could do our wedding for free. Well, 12 months later and we still had not seen our wedding video. Darin made a few phone calls (without me knowing) and arranged the unclipped footage to be sent to him. He spent HOURS piecing the video together for me.. and surprised me on our anni!! Seriously, is he sweet or what?
1 - bummed out Darcy because she drove through Atlanta and didn't stop to see Kayla Aimee cuz she was on vacation too. BUMMER!! Next time, KA, next time. =)
-2 - the number of strokes that I lost in a game of putt-putt to Darin Jay. =( SO CLOSE!!
3 - days we spent on the beach doing nothing but being bums. So relaxing!
5 - dolphins we saw in the ocean as we were swimming.
1 - hottie head husband looking hot in his swimsuit all week. =) Grrrr!!!
2 - movies seen in a theater.. that's big for us. =)
1 - puppy held at the pet shop in Bradenton. Um, yeah, pretty sure we need a dog and now Darin's getting more convinced as well. I think we've decided on a beagle.. perfect size and not to "yip-yippy" for Darin. We are going to name it Wrigley.. somehow we are STILL Cubs fans.. Crazy, huh?
1 - Suduko "easy" puzzle I finished.. 1 "medium" puzzle I erased 3 times and still didn't figure out. I HATE SUDUKO & SUDUKO HATES ME!!!
2- Yada Yada books finished. SUCH a good series!!! Book club time, Jill!
1,934,898 - Love bugs seen while in Florida. Um, took us a sec to figure out that they were having some hanky panky as they were flying around. Gross. Get a room.
132 - splats of love bugs on our windsheild. Yuck.
1 - breakfast with my great uncle JJ. Had to giggle at him because he told us to "go buy some spray SPAM and spray it on our windshield so that the bugs wouldn't stain our windshield". Um, pretty sure he meant PAM spray!! Darin and I laughed at the thought of us smearing SPAM all over our windshield so that the bugs wouldn't stain it. =) HA!
2 - days spent at a water park in Orlando. Does anyone else get grossed out when you are standing in line for a water ride on those spiral stairs and there's water dripping on you? Seriously, that water is either from someone's groody feet or their bathing suit. Ewe.
1 - ride that I got yelled at by a lifeguard. It was this slide thingy with a huge funnel at the bottom. You swirled around and around until it dumped you in a deep pool. After plummeting to my death, or so I thought, I get to the pool at the end of the ride and the lifeguard is yelling at me to get out of the pool. "Um, I will as soon as I figure out if my bathing suit is on or not!" Yikes. No me gusta the gigantuan funnel ride.
1 - Book on tape listened to on the way home. Did you know you can rent books on tape from Cracker Barrel? Seriously, the coolest idea ever.
60 - minutes spent in a dead stop trafic jam on the way home. =( Yuck.
6 - AM that we left on Sat morning and...
12 - PM that we arrived in our home on Saturday night. Ahhh.. long drive!!
All in all, this equals 1 AMAZING vacation in Florida!!!
