Date night

The Michelin Guide is finally recognizing Tampa FL, and while no stars have been awarded here yet, they’ve recognized 19 of our local restaurants. As of tonight we’ve been to 9 of the 19 restaurants. We dined at Restaurant BT. I can see why it’s been recognized. Amazing food and service.

Hubby’s bday! TGIF

Happy Friday!! We decided to take the day off since it’s my husband’s 48th bday today, and my youngest daughters high school sophomore orientation.

We picked her up and went to Tampa for lunch. We had a lovely lunch in the open air at a place called “The Salt Shack.” Great views of the bay and yummy food and drinks did not disappoint.

Afterwards we got school supplies for my daughter, and walked around the mall. We each got some fun things…backpack, romper and a pair of jeans for my daughter, a cute sundress for me and a cool tee shirt for my hubby. Overall awesome day!

How was your day?

Happy New Year’s Eve!!!

As we celebrate the last day of 2017 I have to smile from the inside out.

My family spent the evening at our (my) very first NFL game, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn’t disappoint. They pulled off a win with just seconds to go.

As I look back on this year one word comes to mind. Growth.

I let go of many fair weather friends, I stopped settling for less than what I deserved, andI chased my dreams of living near the beach.

So after surviving hurricane Irma, moving half way across the country, buying a new house, celebrating my 4 year anniversary on WordPress and starting a new career, I say this…Happy New Year!!! May all your dreams come true!!
