Friday Five - In Florida!

Happy Friday!!
I'm blogging from Florida today - so pardon all the iPhone pics - I can't get my big girl camera to upload :(  

Here's what we've been up to the past week!

1. Family Picnic!

Before we left for our big trip, John had a work picnic in Princeton out at a gorgeous lake!  It was so much fun, and we were able to snap a cute family pic :)  

We love stripes!

I wore my new favorite lip color - Rimmel Show Off Liquid Lipstick in "Apocalyptic"!
So fun and bright for summer!

2. Jet-setting

We left Tuesday for Pensacola, Florida!  It's my hometown - and it's always so much fun to travel back home, especially when home is at the beach!
My cute travel buddy....

It's just me and Andrew for this trip - so needless to say, this Mama was so happy for the plane to touch down after a long and stressful travel day!!  We made it though - and Andrew did great! 

3. Blogger play date!

Our first morning in Florida was spent meeting up with one of my favorite blogger ladies!  Annie and her precious son, Brody, from Home of Malones!  We met up for a music class, and the babies had so much fun!!  Yay for this blogging world, bringing new friends together!

4. Birthdays and Pool Fun

Back home, we celebrated my sweet Mom's birthday!  We had delicious shrimp pasta, grilled veggies, and I made a Chocolate Cake :)

I'm trying to get all the fresh seafood in that I can get while I'm home - there's just nothing like shrimp, crabs, and lobster fresh from the Gulf!

We've already had lots of beautiful weather - perfect for pool time!

5. Beach Day!

Yesterday was the most PERFECT beach day!
Check out this water!!

It was so gorgeous - 
we played in the sand, swam in the ocean, had a picnic lunch

...and even took a nap!

Dinner was at the Oar House - one of my faves!
I had a fried fish basket - shrimp, hushpuppies, fries....go big or go home, right!!??

"Catch of the Day!"

It's been such a fun week so far!!
We've got a few more days, so hopefully I'll post again while we are still here!

Hope y'all are having a great week!

court case you want to resolve in your favor?
Health, relationship and finance. Welcome to

with the one you love and desire or why cant the
one you love reciprocate and appreciate that
love? Why would the doctor tell you there is no
solution or cure to your problems? Why would
your lawyer say you stand no chance, that your
case is hopeless? Have you been cheated by
anyone or those owing you money refuse to pay
back? Do you need a rapid job promotion in
your place of work? You want to venture into
politics? Now I understand certain things are
hard to believe and comprehend, but all I ask
from you is only 3 days and if you will follow my
instructions and use the items you will receive, I

in peace. And if your intentions are to take
advantage of the powerful nature of our items
for the purpose of evil, I will not have any
business with you please be advised. May
