Sunshine StatePosted: May 2, 2011
Hello, hello! Whelp, we made it back by 9:30 last night. Just about 12 hours shy of when our day at the airport started. I almost wept tears of joy when the gate agent called our last name ;)
On to more exciting things. This weekend was an absolute blast! We had no trouble getting there, which was fantastic.
We spent the rest of the afternoon soaking up the sun, enjoying beverages and laughing until our sides hurt. Apparently, I was also glued to my glass the entire day.
After the sun set, we figured it was time to come inside and start eating! We had some fab BBQ along with a few other tasty sides.
Over the past four years, I’ve realized that UF folk love all things blue and orange. Even down to the cupcakes. Hey, I didn’t hate it ;)
Lindsay’s graduation was at 6 PM on Saturday, so we spent the morning relaxing with a manicure and pedicure. We had lunch at this great restaurant that served tons of “Southern comfort” type meals. I ended up getting a salad, but I tried a bite of my first fried green tomato and it was tasty!
After we ate our fill, we took some pictures with The Graduate. She looked beautiful, per the usual – and I was very proud of my UF inspired outfit ;)
The graduation was surprisingly quick. We got home much earlier than we expected, which was good because we were able to stayed up chatting, eating and drinking before calling it a night. We had to get up pretty early to
sit in an airport all day fly home.
And now, here I am! Back in good ol’ Northern Virginia ready to start another week! I love going on trips, but the first day back to reality is always a little rough for me. I just want to still be on vacation mode ;)
Vacation mode or not, I’m off to earn some dolla bills ;) I’ll catch up with you soon! Enjoy your day!
Let’s chat – Is the first day back from vay-cay a struggle for you too? How’s your Monday looking? Busy? Laid back? Let me know!
