Hello dear friends! I can finally share my 'life' with you all! DH was very adamant that he did not want 'the whole world' (lol) to know that we were going to be out of town, and that the house would be empty. I honored his request.
A few of you knew what we were up to, but for those of you who don't...
We will be celebrating our 38th anniversary soon, and we have never taken a vacation. So...DH and I left on the morning of March 18th and drove about 10 hours to Griffin, Ga., where we spent a night with DH's brother and SIL.
Then... We left dear doggie with them, and continued another 10.5 hours drive on the 19th to FLORIDA!!!
Our DS flew into West Palm Beach, and we picked him up there. We spent one night in W.Palm Beach, and then drove back up to Jupiter, Florida, where the St. Louis Cardinal's have their baseball spring training games!
DS had rented us a fabulous 2 bdrm., 2 bath condo less than 1/4 mile walk from the beach. It had a washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, etc. All we had to do was carry in our bags and it was like coming home! Beautiful!!!
We then went to ball games on the 20th, 21st, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, in Jupiter, Viera, and St. Lucie Florida. What fun we had! Seafood, walks on the beach, ball games, boat rides, etc.
I played hooky on the St. Lucie day from the game, and instead, met up with Suzanne Edwards, one of my blogging friends that my friend Shirley introduced me to on-line. We had a wonderful visit and lunch at a great Mexican Restaurant, and then went to Suzanne's LSS and shopped! I even found Echo Park papers!!! Wahoo! While there, I met another friend of Shirley's that I've swapped with many times, Janie Fires (don't know if I have spelled that correctly). Then a DT member from the Magnoliaicious DT came in and I talked with her (didn't get her name). What a great day!
So, that is where I have been for the last 12 days or so!!! We enjoyed temps of 87-97 degrees, with NO SNOW, NO SLEET, and even no rain!!!
Now you know why I asked you what your favorite ball team is! There's still time to sign up here for my blog candy too!!!
Thanks to all of you for being patient with me! It's been wonderful seeing our DS and visiting with him. He's in the AF and lives in Los Angeles, so we don't see him very often, and this was an unbelieveably relaxed and wonderful visit.
We've also decided that vacations are a lot of fun! We got home a little while ago. Tomorrow, will be unpacking, picking up the mail (OMG, gasp, shriek - what a mess THAT will be!), and working on our monthly reports for his business. However, I plan to create SOMETHING!!! I have SO missed creative time in my girl cave!
Have a great day!!!
Hugs and blessings,
