Welcome back to the blogging world. Did everyone have a nice weekend? Mark and I went down to South Florida to visit his parents and be spoiled accordingly. Today I am linking up with my bestie Biana. Have you checked her blog yet? She has such amazing style and gives beautiful insights to my former hometown Boston. She has started with Meghan a Monday Weekending linkup and I’m so excited to join her for her first one!
We went down to Miami for that program that allows you to have the additional background screening so we can use it for the TSA pre check for our Summer travels. Naturally mundane activities seem to always attract something funny when Mark and I are together. When we finally got called back the friendly screening agent stopped me first and quietly asked me “would you like to do this by yourself?? Is there anything you don’t him to know”….he then gave me this look
I immediately busted out laughing and said “no worries, I mean I appreciate you asking me but he can definitely come in with me“.
Then he brings in Mark and quietly asks him the same question about if he wanted to do the interview alone to which Mark looks like this
Then we all collectively started laughing as Mark says “I mean trust me not hiding anything and we will certainly know everything by February 20th“. The agent was cracking up saying “you would be surprised how many times I’ve found something in someones past that their significant other didn’t know about, arrests, outside travel, unpaid child support….we learn lots of things everyday“.
As I got approved he gave Mark a big thumbs up and then came at me with that like tiny computer black camera so naturally I do this
I mean it wasn’t that dramatic but we all know I have a side right? The guy immediately starts laughing and said “I need to take that again…I only got like one side of your face…..please this time look straight on at me and don’t turn your head.
Mark is now all like this
and tells him “I mean she always has to be on my left side“. To which the agent said “oh trust me I know all about women and their sides“.
I’m in the corner now like this
That my friends was the funny start to our weekend. Oh I also learned that when the Miami Heat win a game (side note the NBA finals are happening?) apparently you get a free coffee from Dunkin Donuts
We took advantage of gorgeous weather and headed down by the water
Followed by lunch
That night, always have reasons to celebrate right?
Followed by some naps, dinner and the next day the drive back to my parents house where they took us out to dinner. I told Mark “it’s like we are poor college kids the way our parents fed us this weekend“. We headed to our favorite local spot called the Casey Key Fish House. It’s “Old Florida” as my mother would say.
So cool watching the view of the storm over the water while we eat their amazing Grouper sandwiches (sorry I covered mine in sauerkraut).
Local Tiki bar.
Made it back home to enjoy these. Has anyone tried these yet?
Definitely was a whirlwind of a weekend for sure! What were you up to? Did you get to enjoy the gorgeous weather? Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow I am reviewing a few of my Favorite Products I’ve been digging lately! xoxoxo
