Warm Weekend Book Ends

Hello, friends! How are you doing today? I'm pretty good, but super sad to be back home in the 30 degree weather after a warm weekend in  Ft. Lauderdale, FL. We had our first kickball tournament over the weekend and it was a great trip in the sun and warmth.

We left late on Thursday night and arrived to a bit chillier welcome than expected. Friday it was the coldest it had been in the last 20 years in Ft Lauderdale, but 35 was better than the 5 degrees we left in DC. Teachers were only in school one day last week, can you believe it? Our county it so strange, who closes for the cold? But, I digress. Back to the awesome weekend.

This weekend I…

… left the airport at BWI with snow on the ground.


… wore one of the amazing shirts Amanda recommended. #new favorite


… watched Wreck it Ralph while drinking  three glasses of wine [thank you vouchers].

… stayed at the cutest lil B&Besque hotel.

… passed out unexpectedly because I was so tired. #bestdecisionever

… walked three miles Friday morning because it was only 55 degrees and not beach weather.


… didn't pout, made the best of the situation and enjoyed a delicious crepe for lunch.


… meet up with kickball friends at a bar then went to a delicious dinner at Market 17.

… wore one of my new maxi dresses from VS and a fun vest I forgot I had in my closet.

… enjoyed a beautiful sunrise Saturday morning.


… dealt with a bit of an uber debacle, but everything worked out, thankfully.

… was thankful for the clouds in the sky on game day because it kept me from getting fired.

… played a great day of kickball, minus one mistake, but lost in the round of eight. Normally, I'd be upset but this was a team made up of new people and we lost to a good team. I had a great day of kickball, which is always a lot of fun.

… ate pizza for dinner, passed out for an hour then rallied to meet everyone at the bar.

… loved the random outfit I put together for the bar. #newfavorite.

… had a bit of a scare at the bar, because it had some random, sketchy clientele. #newbarcrawl.

… was out way past my bed time but loved all the fun memories made with my kickballers.

… woke up, packed up the room then headed to the beach.


… met up with Lynn's BIL & SIL for brunch. We enjoyed delicious food, wonderful company and of course, missed the BOFF and her husband. #onedaytrip

… grabbed our bags from the hotel and headed to the bar for Sunday Funday with kickballers.

… chatted, laughed, drank and cheers with some of the coolest kids on the Circuit.

… rocked my second maxi dress of the weekend. #maxidressloveforlife


… headed to the airport, ate dinner and flew home. #sadtoleavetheprettypalmsbehind


… drove back in the ice and snow and passed out at home. [fingers crossed I can work from home today].

How was your weekend?
