Oh Monday how are you here already? So my weekend had a change in plans when I got a call from my seamstress who informed me she had gotten into poison ivy while gardening so I couldn’t come in for my alterations appointment. Therefore I was free to be a pirate on Saturday. No lie I had a little moment of panic. I was having flashes of a romcom movie where the oils got on the inside of my dress and I went for my fitting to then wonder why I was itching and then I came down with a poison ivy rash right before my wedding. Why is everyone trying to make me crazy right at the end??? Linking up with my girls Biana and Meghan.
Friday morning started off by making a quick stop to raise our right hands to swear the paperwork we filled out including we had never been married before was correct. Marriage license complete.
I had an early release day and met one of my girlfriends over in my old ‘hood as I like to call it for lunch. Fruitwood such a cute place! Pop up market with fresh food and brick oven. I had an iced coffee and she asked if I wanted almond milk. Yes! Boooo with soy, hooray for almond. They know whats up.
I got their wifi code and sat out in the amazing weather soaking up the pre Gasparilla buzz of the city.
Took advantage of the countdown days to use this.
Friday night Mark cooked some beautiful filets. He is really stepping up this whole cooking in thing.
Saturday my brother came in town and we took him out for the best people watching pirate parade. The outfits did not disappoint this year. I wish I got pictures but a few were burned into my brain I probably will never forget. Here is the pirate ship coming in to conquer the city. Who wants to come and visit me? It was 70 degrees and gorgeous.
Loved being able to hang out with my brother.
True story he really tried to intimidate Mark since I am the baby sister and all but they hang out all the time now even without me. Best friends forever hahahhaha. Clearly I have a pose.
Sunday was spent being very lazy. Catching up on work and consuming way too much food. I am a little scared of my fitting on Tuesday. It will be protein bars and salads till the wedding mark my words.
All I have to say about Sunday night. I literally turned to Mark and said “what in the world is going on with those dancing sharks???? Not going to lie though I kinda dig them”. Missy Elliot killed! I like the way your work that those fins.
Oh and I can finally add this.
Wow heart attack how many times. Mark and I definitely danced around……I just wish we had some dancing sharks to go along with it.
How was your weekend? Does you city have a big event that happens every year that brings in tons of people? Such gorgeous weather for Gasparilla! xoxoxoxoxo
