Family time in Florida

Greetings friends!

{Quick note: Tomorrow is your last chance to enter my Stella and Dot giveaway! The winner gets the sweet bib necklace valued at $148! Visit this post for details and a picture of the necklace.}

I have made it home safe and sound from Florida and the wedding festivities. It was really nice spending the long weekend with my sisters, dad, and extended family.

Operation Get a Tan turned into Opertation {OOPS} I Burned though. Not terribly, but enough to make me hurt a little. We only had one beach day but it was enough for me. It was my fault – I didn’t reapply sunscreen like I should have (tsk, tsk on me!). I think I was so desperate for the sun and the beach that I only applied once and didn’t think twice! Not good. I learned my lesson.

Part of our weekend included a dinner cruise, where I wore my favorite dress. I bought this blue dress from The Limited about two years ago and have worn it many times (throughout the blog). I love finding a dress/outfit that I can always rely on! (Plus, my necklace from JewelMint went with it well).

I love this picture of my sisters and Dad. It was literally TWO seconds before it started raining. AKA, the one picture when my hair wasn’t a complete fro (still lovin’ my ONE stylin’ products!).

Post rain, inside the boat with my little 16-year old cousin Cassie (I still can’t believe she is a teenager… let alone 16!). She’s such a sweetheart – destined to be a heart breaker I’m sure ;-).

On Sunday, we attended the wedding at a temple in Florida. Mazel tov! 

You know you’re around fellow Pittsburgh people, when all the sudden people start swirling their yellow napkins to resemble Terrible Towels. Oh yes we did. (GO STEELERS).

The best part about this wedding was the details and specifically, the food. They had a bunch of different appetizers and mini desserts to create a full meal. I was stuffed and happy!

I had to post this picture of Melanie with a mini hot dog. She’s so cute!

Oh and I kinda caught the bouquet. Oops. I’ve been to several weddings and never caught the bouquet. There’s a first time for everything I suppose. :-)


Hanging out with my sisters and Dad was the highlight. <3

Back to work/reality tomorrow. I hope you had a great weekend!

Sounds like a great weekend! Maybe I’ll aim my bouquet at you too, just to really make Todd nervous ;-)

I think I missed the contest. Who was the lucky winner? Congrats to that person. I wish I could join next time.
