Florida!

Wednesday, March 4, 2009

For better or worse, this baby brewing body will be hitting the beach in a bikini tomorrow {okay, realistically Friday} :)

I haven't spoken about it much in real life or blog land due to our uncertain employment and financial situations. We bought the tickets in September for pretty much a steal at $160 roundtrip from Minneapolis to Ft. Myers. After which my pay was cut in half, a new job was embarked on and in all honesty, up until 3 weeks ago or so we weren't sure if we were actually going.

Additionally, the purpose of the trip is pretty fun and unique! A group of 8 will be staying at our friend's parent's condo in Ft. Myers. Beth and Lacey actually went down today . . . and Lacey has no idea that the remaining six of us, including her husband, are coming down tomorrow to surprise her for her birthday! How sweet is that?

So this trip has basically been put out of mind for two reasons. I feel like all of my excitement is now bottled up into a half day between leaving work today and boarding the plane tomorrow morning!

As I mentioned we'll be staying at my friend's parent's condo, so our stay is covered. Additionally, we're going to be purchasing groceries and Tony and I have already voiced that we will be that couple to stay back due to my pregnantness and to save money. :) I'm already excited about going grocery shopping. Isn't that sad? I really hope I can get some deals on seafood being that we're on the Gulf side and it's Lent!

We're going to hit up some beaches and also a Twins spring training game! Woot!

Have fun!!!

...on the copyright note. I know that had to be pretty scary, but it's not like you were trying to pass that photographers pictures off as your own! In addition, there are ways to make things non-copyable so I don't know why people concerned with copyright laws don't protect their stuff better. Oh well. Have a great vacation! I can't lie. I'm a little jealous :)

Wow, perfect timing - I love warm trips when it's still cold in your hometown. ;) Have a blast Leah - you and Tony deserve this trip. Can't wait to see pics!!

AmberDenae said...

Yay Florida!!! Too bad you couldn't come to Pensacola. You'd love it here! I hear Fort Myers is really nice too. I've never been. I am so glad that you guys have been blessed with this. You so deserve it! Soak it in and have an incredible time! I can't wait to see pictures! :)

Erin said...

Have a wonderful time!!! Our Disney trip while I was pregnant is one of my best memories ever. Max out your time with Tony! :o)

Kaitlyn said...

Have fun on the trip! It's kind of like a baby-moon, huh? Anyways- enjoy :)

Raquel said...

Have a blast on your trip. Make sure you get your Twins tickets early. My husband and I were unable to get tickets all last week regardless if it was a day or night game.
Also I must say that the shelling early morning on Sanibel island was amazing.

Danielle said...

Have a wonderful time! I'm jealous, I'm desperately craving some beach time!!!

*Kimmie* said...

Have so much fun! I'm excited you got this opportunity!

And I'm not kidding.. I want baby bikini pictures! =)

Chelsea said...

Oh my gosh Leah, I hope you guys have a blast! You know that Ft. Myers Beach is where Brian & I go every year?! :) It is our favorite place in the world and where he proposed to me. :) I am actually dying right now sitting at work knowing that you are there..... without me! But if anyone deserves it, it's you!!! And if you do venture out at all for a meal, make sure you go to the Yucatan! It is the best food on the beach!

LeeAnn said...

I'm so jealous that you're going to a Twins game! DH's aunt/uncle have condo's in Marco Island. I've been saying for years that we should go during spring training time and hit a game. It's about an hour away, that's where we'd fly in/out.
Have fun!

Leah said...

Have a great time!

Lindsey said...

So fun! Have a blast!!

Madeline said...

Hope you are having a WONDERFUL time and took tons of pictures :)

Jaime said...

Hope you are having the best time. I bet you are rockin that bikini....

Can't wait to see pictures...

G+D said...

Oh how crazy! G and I just got back from Ft. Meyers, FL too! We went with 2 other couples and stayed at his parents' condo on the beach (the last exit before the bridge/toll to Sanibel Island). What a coincidence! Hope you had a great trip!
