Thoughts for Thursday: Vacation Time and Blogging

Happy Thursday from Florida Friends!  I hope you all have been having a great week so far. We are down in Rosemary/Seacrest Beach area of Florida this week for a vacation with my side of the family.  After coming down here for my mom's birthday last May we had to come back. Since I'm on vacation I wanted to pop in and say hi and share a few pictures from our trip.

First I wanted to share details on this cover up and bathing suit since so many of you asked me about it after I posted it on instastories yesterday.

The cover up is from Shopbop and is still available, you can find it here.  There is also a cheaper version of it for only $24.99 here!! I have not tried the less expensive version so I can't speak for the quality but it's a steal.  
My one piece is Trina Turk from last summer but it's her cross back one piece style and it is the BEST!! I have bought this the last two seasons and just ordered her new one for this year, which you can find here and here.  

We had dinner at George's and it was just as good as we remember from last year. George's is in Alys Beach which is another beach with gorgeous architecture and only a five minute walk from our house in Seacrest. 

Annie from Home of Malones came to visit up with her two adorable kids Brody and Madelyn.  This is the second year she's come to visit us and I'm so happy that blogging has brought us together and we've gotten to meet in real life. This is one of the reasons I just cannot quit this blog, I have made so many wonderful "friends" through this community and feel so special about the ones I've gotten to meet in real life. Annie is just as sweet, fun, and down to earth as she seems on her blog and the kids had so much fun together! It seems like we're old friends who've known each other forever instead of people who just met on the internet 3 years ago.

I promise I will be back next Thursday with a full recap of our trip!  Have a great weekend friends!
