As many of you know, I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, and that’s where I am for the holidays! Happy Christmas Eve to you!
It’s nice to be home again! It’s been a while, and though I was home for a few hours last week, I went to Florida right away. Let me tell you all about the trip.
My best friend, Melissa, picked me up last Tuesday morning to head to our flight from Pittsburgh. We had an 11:10 flight, but it turns out we didn’t leave until 6:30. We sat in the airport for over 8 hours. Not okay. In those 8 hours, I also discovered that I didn’t get the job that I went on two interviews for . I wasn’t really telling you all about that, but unfortunately it fell through. Which means I will definitely be heading to live with Travis in a few weeks!
But back to vacation. We finally got to Ft. Lauderdale about 9 hours later than hoped. Which kind of took away a day of vacation. Our hotel was GORGEOUS though! Check out the lobby holiday display:
And the view from our hotel room:
For the first few days there was a lot of this:
The hotel was so great and the staff so friendly. We had complimentary padded chairs on the beach. It was awesome. After two days, though, the weather was FRIGID. Like went from 80 to 60 and even into the 40s at night.
Once it got colder, I spent more time looking outside at the gorgeous gym.
Or laying poolside in my sweats…
And eating of course, too. A huge bowl of froyo:
And some amazing chicken nachos of course… Lulu’s is AMAZING.
We also went out a few times. Here is one of us at the hotel before we went out!
Overall, it was great to spend time with my bestie and to relax, but the weather and some other factors kind of put a damper on the week. Such is life, right!?
Now I’m off to spend tons of time with family and friends and enjoy a few weeks relaxing at home. Sounds pretty great, right?!
Happy Holidays, folks!
