Well, today, I was going to post pics of my new office, buuuuuut there is one little thing missing, so I thought “I’ve waited this long, I might as well wait another week”.
It’s very hard to believe that my house still isn’t 100% finished…but it’s not. Just yesterday, I had a plumber, electrician and cabinet guy here with me. I’m going to miss all of these people when they’re finally gone. #kidding #ienjoymyquiettime #itsbeenalmostayearatthispoint
So, I punted and decided to show you a few pics from Spring Break instead!
We like to go somewhere cold after Christmas and then somewhere warm during Spring Break, so this year, we thought we’d try Miami, Florida. The weather was pretty terrible the first two days we were there, but we made the most of it and things definitely improved as the week went by. We laughed a lot, you guys. Looking back on this week with my fam, I’m going to remember lots of laughing 🙂 .
It’s been over a year since I’ve done a travel post, and I feel super ill-prepared (aren’t we supposed to be talking about desks and office furniture today?), but rusty as I may be, here are a few pics from our first few days in Miami…
Welcome to the Sunshine State! Ha! What it lacked in sun, it certainly made up for with tropical depression like wind.
It was so windy.
The windiest conditions I’d ever experienced in my life.
Andrew says he’s been in windier conditions.
He’s also been in three hurricanes.
(Insert that emoji smiling with big teeth here.)
We left Dallas on Monday morning and flew to Miami (we literally were running to our gate and flew by the Slaughters at the airport. Ha!). Our plan was to stay at our hotel (The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour) and enjoy the sun. We arrived, checked in, ate lunch and then headed to the pool…
My sweet kiddos jumped right on in, but I stayed under my towel(s) and read.
Look at that face.
I’m clearly out of practice with this whole “blogging vacations” thing because that’s all I have from our pool time. That day, our resort pool was empty (probably because the wind was blowing 105 mph), so we had the space to ourselves and enjoyed it.
That night, we cleaned up…
…and headed to dinner.
Dinner table snuggles with my girl! We had reservations that night at Cafe Prima Pasta, and it was delicious!! The atmosphere was great, the Italian food delish and the whole place felt super charming.
These are the pics from my phone…
…what.is.happening? Needless to say, lots of laughs and happy faces.
We might have been lacking sun on our first day, but we were not lacking happiness. After dinner, we headed back to our hotel and went to sleep.
The next morning…
…we woke up to some blue skies!
Agh! My heart! How sweet is this girl?! I bought Ashby and Madeley new swimsuits from Target and they were even more extra adorable on then I had imagined!!
They both very much wanted me to take pics of them in their swimsuits. Aren’t they fun?!
So…we ate breakfast, put on our swimsuits and headed back to the pool and beach for the day.
I have no pictures because I swear to you the wind was 184 mph and at one point we were laughing so hard because our food was legit flying off of our plates at lunch. Even though it was not ideal, we laughed so much because it was really insane. Since it was crazy windy, after lunch, we cleaned up and decided it was time for a Plan B…
…there was a mall right down the street, so we went over there to walk around, check out the fish and turtles and kill some time until dinner 🙂 .
Awwwwww! Love him!
Those crazy fourth kids, y’all.
We ended with a fabulous dinner at The Palm and laughed about so many things from our time poolside earlier that day.
After our yummy dinner, we headed back to the hotel, and then the next morning, we had lots of sun and very little wind. I’ll save all that fun stuff for a second post 😉 .
In the meantime, that’s a little look at the beginning of our Spring Break!
Happy Thursday, friends!
