Usually, when I sit down to write a blog post, I have a plan and sorta know where it's gonna go. Right now, that is not the case. Who knows where this will end up; it may be all over the place. Last weekend, Doc and I took advantage of the extra day off (thanks, MLK, Jr.!) and jetted down to Florida. The purpose of the trip was two-fold: 1) check on the house and 2) relax as much as possible. After a not-so-great week, it was nice to get away for a few days. We left early Saturday morning and, after a couple hour drive from the airport, we headed straight to the house. We had a meeting with our builder to get updated on the progress (pics coming soon!) and then after that, we met with someone from the rental company that we'll use. It was good getting all of that done and out of the way, but it made for a little bit of an exhausting afternoon.
We stayed at the Sandestin Resort, which is somewhere I'd never been. We snagged a great deal on the room! It was a great place to stay for what will hopefully be our last visit to the area without staying in our own house. We had a great view of the beach from our room but you know what? Our toes never touched the sand.
My husband treated me (and himself, too!) to a nice massage at the resort's spa. Man, was it nice! Why don't we all pamper ourselves more often? One day, when I'm super rich and money goes on trees, maybe I'll have a reoccuring massage appointment. I'll add that to my wish list.
One night we had sushi for dinner at the resort's sushi bar. When it was served, I wouldn't let Doc eat any before I took a picture.
Shortly afterwards, I read a tweet that said something like "Things Girls Say: Sushi is so pretty!" Guilty as charged.
I should thank Mr. Luther not only for the extra day off work, but also for the smashing good deals we got at the outlet mall in his honor. I may even have to give our super savings a blogpost of their own, they were that good.
Switching gears...last night I made this cake for a coworker's birthday. If you've ever spent 10 seconds on Pinterest, you've probably already seen it. It's all over that site.
It was super easy. One box of cake mix, one can of icing, 9 1/2 packages of kit-kats, and a whole bag of m&ms. I'm sure there were no fat grams at all.
I think my coworkers like it.
That last piece sat there for about 7 seconds before someone scraped it onto their plate. I think I may have to make another one this weekend for my dad's upcoming birthday.
I guess that's about all the randomness I've got for now. Tomorrow marks one year since my sweet Minnie girl went to heaven. I still miss her everyday.
