The Salt Life

This post brought to you by Bahama Breeze. All opinions are 100% mine.

 photo ScreenShot2014-06-18at15323PM_zps53f4b66d.pngI've loved the beach as long as I can remember. I love the smell of the ocean, the white noise from the crashing waves, the sun and the breeze, and my toes in the sand. 

I was land-locked in West Virginia, unless you count lakes or polutted rivers which I do not — so yeah, i was landlocked. When we moved to Florida, I thought for SURE I would be at the beach every weekend, soaking up the rays and reading a book in my lawn chair. Guess what? Gainesville, Florida is also land-locked..ish, unless you count the springs and gorgeous river, which I do — but yeah, still no ocean. And I'm sad to say, we've only had one trip to the beach in at least 18 months. Please dont' cry for me. My life will go on.

Despite being only two hours or so from the shore, our favorite tropical destiation is…Orlando. Which is…not tropical at all. Disney World wildlife, sure. And, I mean..there's the Enchanted Tiki Room? So, sort of? 

When we can, we love to go to our local Orlando Bahama Breeze for a little salt life smack dab in the middle of Florida. They have great food, yummy tropical drinks and the patio feels like you're in the Islands. What more could you ask for? 

Bahama Breeze is kicking it up a notch with the Bahama Breeze Summer Beach Bash now until August 3, featuring live Island music on the patio, a mojito bar, and a new signature cocktail, Bahama Breeze Ultimate Pineapple, served in a fresh-cut pineapple. My favorite meal there is the Fresh Pan-Seared Salmon Pasta, and that would be a perfect addition. A little salt life in the middle of the city? Don't mind if I do. After all, Bahama Breeze is the "summer destination for good times" — it's as close as you can get to enjoying the beach when you're miles from the nearest one.

Think your beachy selfie skills are better than mine (unlikely)? Bahama Breeze wants to see what you have. Enter the #MyBBSelfie Instagram contest. Share your favorite selfie enjoying your time at the Summer Beach Bash and use the hashtag #MyBBSelfie for a chance to win Bahama Breeze gift cards and prizes. 

Now if you need me, I'll be dreaming of my next beach trip — or one of those delicious mojitos.

Savannah’s Birth Story

Oh hi.

I didn’t see you there. Probably because I haven’t been on my computer for eight weeks.

Today is my first day back to work and I have the feels. The past eight weeks has been a whirlwind. It’s like…the days went so fast, it seems like I’ve had two children my whole life,

BOWS! or why I’m excited for a little girl [GIVEAWAY]

rockabilly baby place 1

Since the day I found out I’m having a little girl, I can’t help but think pink.

As if there was ANY doubt I would dress my child up like a teeny, tiny mini-me diva, people sometimes ask me, “what color is her room going to be?” (PINK DUH) “Are you going to paint her

First Haircut

Sometimes you have a baby born with a little hair, and then that baby’s hair falls out and doesn’t really grow back in for two and a half years. And sometimes you look at that child, the one who was practically bald a year ago, and say, “He doesn’t need a haircut yet. His curls

Peep this Christmas Spirit

Not long ago, my team at work consisted of just one lady. Then I moved in, and there were two. Then another joined the team and frankly, we were getting a bit tired of all the geek and tech stuff lining the walls, so we took matters into our own hands.

Christmas, you guys. This

A Disney World Third Birthday

Before I get into an extremely picture heavy #IPPP post, can we discuss for one hot mintue that my child IS THREE YEARS OLD? Um, how? I am not the first mama to say that and I certainly won’t be the last, but time is getting faster and faster. It’s amazing and heartbreaking. Motherhood rules.
