Reggae Rise Up – St. Petersburg

We just returned from another mini vacation, but this was a road trip across the state to a music festival called Reggae Rise Up. It was a two-day festival at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg which is a really pretty area. The awesome line-up included Iration, Slightly Stoopid, Through the Roots, Dirty Heads, and Steel…

Easy Dinners Delivered by Green Chef

Who really wants to go home after an eight hour work day and cook dinner? Not only do I work those eight hours, but I also have at least an hour commute home and many evenings I go to the gym after work. This doesn’t get me home until about 7:30pm and sometimes even later…

Vacation Day 3: Niagara Falls to Home

We always plan to get up at a certain time and get going and plan our day out. Well, we never actually get up and going when we plan to. We were about an hour behind our schedule and today had lots to do packed into it. We started with the free hotel breakfast overlooking…

Vacation Day 2: Toronto back to Niagara

Of course we woke up late, after a super late night… We checked out of our AirBnB after taking more pics from the amazing balcony. We then headed for breakfast at Cafe Crepe at 246 Queen Street West. It was a quaint little spot with great service and tasty food. I had the Florentine with…

Vacation Day 1: Niagara to Toronto

We are on our first mini vacation of 2017 to Canada! When we kept telling everyone who asked, that we were taking a vacation to Niagara Falls and Toronto in February, the first thing they asked was WHY?! We both were like WHY NOT?! We live in South Florida and don’t get to see the…

Why I Dislike Valentine’s Day with a Passion

As you know, it’s Valentine’s Day. The day of overpriced chocolates, flowers, stuffed animals and a bunch of other junk… I’m not a fan of this day if you couldn’t tell! In my opinion, this is the dumbest holiday, EVER. The end. Lucky for Ben, he doesn’t have to stress over this holiday, and neither…

Facebook’s Wedding Swip Swap

I was talking with a friend and also a new Mrs. about selling our leftover wedding items. She mentioned a Facebook page that’s strictly for wedding items in Florida. I asked her to add me to the group and within a day my request to join the group was approved. I so wish I had…

Wedding Photographer Nightmare

So somehow this entire post was deleted and has been sitting with no text… Not sure how that happened, but I’ll retell this nightmare. Our wedding was October 15th and we received a preview about 2 weeks after. We were told the entire photo package would take 6-8 weeks from the wedding to receive. Week…

New Year’s Resolutions as a Mrs. 

Well to be honest these resolutions aren’t any different than if I was still a Miss. 2016 was a crazy hectic year planning for the wedding. We had many busy weekends filled with our engagement party, food tastings, bachelor and bachelorette weekend, bridal shower, wedding, honeymoon, family visits and so on. Needless to say there…

No Kids, No Pets? You’re Not Alone

Do you have any kids? No. Do you have any pets? No. Really?? Yes, really. Then you must have a lot of time to yourself. What do you do? Seriously?!? The above conversation has occurred on several occasions and it’s very insulting and frustrating. I feel like they are insinuating I literally have nothing to…

Still Waiting on Photos

We are now over 10 weeks past the wedding and our photographer still has not gotten all of our photos to us! I was wanting to print some and give as Christmas gifts, but obviously that didn’t happen. Originally our photographer said 6-8 weeks to receive all the images. At week 8 (Dec. 4th), I…

Time to Plan Something

Although I’ve been busy, I still have a hole from no wedding planning, no honeymoon planning, just no more planning. So what do I do? I look into vacation ideas for me and the hubby of course! We have the Spirit $9 Fare Club. I know most people hate Spirit, but we actually haven’t had…
