My Florida Style Weekend in Pictures

Well, it’s here again. Another Monday has us in its grasp. Happily, I’m not suffering from the Monday blues this morning as I had such an amazing weekend with my family! Saturday we headed off to the Gasparilla children’s parade and we had a blast watching the dude tear around beautiful Bayshore Boulevard! After the parade we had a cook out over at the ‘rents’Β  house and then headed out for a little fireworks and ice cream action.

On Sunday, my mama took the dude off our hands while the hubs and I headed over to the Chocolate Sunday event. It was a chocolate lover’s paradise and I particularly enjoyed meeting Casey of Casey’s Cookies which is a nonprofit organization designed to promote the independence of disabled adults. Its namesake was thoroughly charming and she jumped right in to answer all my questions, including rattling off all her favorite cookies of which there were many. Now that’s a girl after my own heart!

After we got our chocolate fix, we headed over to downtown Safety Harbor for some BBQ and a stroll by the water. It was a picturesque Florida afternoon and just what two harried parents needed! I’d forgotten how much I missed just hanging out with my handsome husband one on one.

In case y’all are interested in outfit details…I’m rockin’ a LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s blazer, J. Crew and Loft necklaces, a Rachel Leigh gumball ring, Hanes mens tanks, Banana Republic skinny jeans and Aerosoles leopard flats…all of which I snagged from my closet!

Now that I’ve given you a rundown of my weekend, I’d love to hear about yours!

    I’m glad you had a nice weekend, and I hope you got plenty of beads. It sure was cold out there. with the wind and cold, I had such a hard time throwing beads to where I wanted them to go, (I’m in the Sirens Krewe.) I loved seeing all the little ones in the crowd screaming for beads, and many in their own pirate costumes. So cute! It was a great warm up to next weekend’s festivities.

    I so wanted to go to Chocolate Sunday, but unfortunately, I didn’t make it. sounds like a great time though.

    Looks like you had a FAB time!!! πŸ™‚ It gets me excited.. because I’m leaving tomorrow morning for florida (from Sweden)! yayyyy!!!!! I’ll be in Orlando πŸ™‚

  3. Jessica says

    Kids are too cute with ice cream – they always look so darn content!

    But I’m all about momma’s treat with that beer! And your shoes are such a chic addition to your outfit.

  4. Maddy says

    You’re one sexy Mama!! So glad you got to enjoy some alone time with the hubs! But I will say, the Dude gets cuter and cuter every day! Those blong curls…I can’t stand it! Cuteness overload πŸ™‚

  5. Jen says

    I’ve been in Miami all weekend! Luckily got out of dodge on the coldest weekend of the season. I wrote about my visit to the zoo. I just can’t get over the fact that people were wearing winter coats in 70 degree weather. Come on! I guess it’s all relative.

  6. Scientific Housewife says

    That looks like fun and I love your outfits!

    I went to the Columbia for dinner for the first time and it was fantastic!

  7. Trianna says

    Sounds like you had fun! We’re over in Ft. Lauderdale. I also went to a BBQ with Baby Boy, my sister (JIn), her boyfriend and my hubby. Even though the weather was supposed to be warm, it was rather nippy. LOL We had a great time playing Kinect and just hanging out! Isn’t that what the weekend is about?

  8. Jules says

    It looks like you had a fantastic weekend lady! I’m so glad you and the hubs got in some couple time. The weather looks absolutely gorgeous!

    The BBQ looks yummy and I heart your outfit. The blazer is super cute and I’m loving those leopard flats πŸ™‚

  9. Vanessa Elizabeth @ Ruffled Rose says

    Sounds like you had quite the full weekend! I started a textile design course on Saturday, which turned out to be much better than I had anticipated. Otherwise my weekend was filled with some baking, a bit of cleaning and phone calls home.

    ps – your son is so adorable!

  10. Ally @ Shabby Princess says

    What a fun weekend! Love your outfit too! And oh my gosh, your sunglasses of course.

    I had a fun weekend, my dad was in town so we were busy, busy! But, I scored myself some fab earrings from Anthro, so, that’s always a win in my book.

    I love it when Mondays aren’t so bad because the weekend was just TOO awesome. =)

    I love these photos. You look beautiful by the way and this Chocolate Sunday event is not going to monopolize my thoughts for the rest of the day. =P

    Thanks for the really sweet comment on my blog and I’m loving the blogger love!! =) I don’t know how we haven’t previously connected because I too have heard of your blog and keep meaning to put you on my blog read list. I think it’s just one of those things — busy and forgetting. But I love your attitude and personality, and now that we’re connected I’m so excited to get to know you and your blog better!

    Sounds like the perfect weekend with fun for everyone and Chocolate Sunday should be celebrated once I month I think!
    I had a lovely weekend and particularly enjoyed getting to see The King’s Speech on Saturday night.

  13. betsy says

    Looks like a perfect weekend. The dude is too cute! love his hat. I agree that it is NICE to have some one on one time with my husband ! Love the flats.

  14. J says

    Wow. In Florida you can walk around without a jacket in January. I knew this existed…but every time I see evidence of it I just sigh. Because I want that!

    PS: Cute fam!!

  15. Marissa says

    Oh, man! What an amazing weekend, and the little dude looks very content. πŸ™‚ You’re making me long for spring, though. I spent the weekend hibernating.

  16. Torrie @ a place to share... says

    Every time I hang out 1:1 with my husband, I feel the same way. Glad you got to have lots of downtime this weekend:).

    Mine was a perfect combo. of great food, family, to-do’s getting done, and a good dose of dvr catching up… oh, and a bit of alcohol in b/t the festivities & projects:).
