Hello From Florida!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 21, 2010

Hey guys!

We made it safe and sound late last night. :)


The sweet Southern Belle at the Budget counter sweet talked us into this bad boy!!!! LOL.


She convinced us it was a special deal just for us…lol. ;)

Lots of fun was had driving to my parents place…music was cranked, songs were sung. Hair got massively knotty, lol.


Lots of beer and chips were had upon arriving


I had 2 beer and then some of Eric’s. Soooo thirsty after the flight. Probably not the most hydrating drink, but it tasted amazing!!! Eric proceeded to spill his beer all over his lap. We joke in my family that it isn’t a party until Eric spills something! LOL…he tends to spill things a lot.

OSGMOM spotting!

The condo they are renting is just beautiful and has such a Florida touch to it.



Despite our awesome bed I could NOT sleep last night! I was sooooo excited and basically wired up. I laid in bed til 2am and I was up around 7am. Vacation excitement! ;)








Love this tree…anyone know what it is?


I started the vacation off on the right foot with a nice 4 mile run this morning.


Despite my stepdad trying to scare me, I did NOT see any snakes! However, every twig, stick, leaf, rustle was a potential suspect. :mrgreen:


Lots of great paths!

I got a really bad blister though so I need to pick up some blister pads. Ouch!

We’re off to Naples now to look around and see the sights. Back later!

Have a lovely Sunday!

Angela, I think the tree is a Jacaranda. I only saw it after I moved to New Zealand. I have one outside of my house. The leaves are beautiful but they only flower for a very short period.

I was also going to say Jacaranda but hard to tell. We had them in So. Cal. Beautiful purple flowers.

That is some wallpaper in the kitchen! Wowza. Have a super trip!

Nice car and place! Have a blast.


Deirdre March 21, 2010 at 2:11 pm

Sounds like you’re having a great time so fat. The car looks like so much fun.

Looks like fun! It’s definitely fun to have a little healthy “leeway” while on vacation although I’ve been on the road nearly two months and am SO looking forward to getting back into my normal routine and my own kitchen.

Glad you made it to Florida safe and sound – i promised you the flight would be fine!

I love that photo of your mom and eric in the kitchen (it looks like she is having a cheeky pinch of his bottom!) :o)

What are in the baskets on your bed? I’m being really nosey now!

How much fun!! What a beautiful apartment!

LEt me know when you find out what tree that is, I have been seeing a lot of them around my house but have no clue what it is.

Have fun.

I used to jog outside trails in Florida all the time, and I only saw a snake once – it was terrifying though! He was a big boy, and I’d have stepped right on him in two more steps if I didn’t stop. I have also seen gigantic turtles, wild horses and buffalo in the central FL area, and was told by someone else once that they saw a gator right in the middle of the trail!
