I'm baaack

Ugh, it's really hard to get back into the swing of things. We got back from Florida early Sunday after a wonderful, wonderful trip. Things went so smoothly, the weather was great, and it was so relaxing that our vacation almost feels like a dream. We came back to colder, wet weather, so adjusting was even harder. I can't complain though. It was really a great experience. We had so many funny experiences, including a free breakfast, that turned into a three hour sales pitch for a timeshare.



Our condo was gorgeous, just overlooking the pool.






We took a day trip to Ft. Lauderdale and drank Margaritas the size of our heads. Since there are so many restaurants there, on the weekdays they offer drink specials at just about every place. These bad boys were 2 for 1, "Millionaire" Margaritas. yuuuummm. We also had the most delicious meal there and I wish I had some of my Adobe chicken right now!



And another to Miami, where I tried in vain to be the paps and spot a celebrity. No such luck. I did get to see Versace's house and stand on the stairs where he was shot. Creepy and cool at the same time.



And created fun memories with Isaiah.



I won $8 playing the slots where Anna Nicole died aka the Hollywood Hotel and Casino. No pictures of that though. I was too busy dancing the the Frank Sinatra slot.

Today is John's first day back at school. It's funny how much my routine differs when he's not around. I actually prefer it. Not because I don't want him around, but because I feel I'm more productive. Anyway, I'm busy getting the house cleaned up. My sister and cousin are coming to visit for a few days. Hopefully I'll be able to fit something crafty in. I haven't sewn anything in over a week. Now I'm off to catch up on some blog reading...

Looks like a lot of fun! I am eagerly awaiting the first day of school here. In a lot of ways it's nice having my husband home for the summer, but I know in 15 days we are going to have a much nicer, more productive and predictable routine.

Isn't it amazing what we'll do for a free breakfast? I hate those timeshare pitches and you've kind of gotta act like you're interested...
It looks like you had a wonderful time. I'd love to visit Florida sometime.
