Where in the world...?

I can't believe how long it's been since I've been in touch! The end of summer is quickly approaching and my work load seems to be amplifying. 

My hubby has been on vacation the past two weeks (woohoo) so between work commitments and spending as much time as possible with him, I've been MIA.

Since returning from my experience of a lifetime in Dubai, Travis was in need of some sand and sun himself. While we couldn't set off for an exotic vacation, we were able to travel to Destin, Florida for a mini-vacay. Our original vacation and anniversary celebration plans included The Big Apple, but we decided to hold off on that trip until fall and enjoy the beach one more time this year. Of course, there were some added benefits to visiting Destin. Travis' best friend from high school is in the Air Force and stationed at Eglin Air Force Base. Guess what his name is? It's a good one- Travis!
It's been years since these two have been together.

Travis and his wife Sarah are parents to four wonderful kids, one girl and three boys. The middle-aged boy, Carter, quickly became my sidekick. He refers to me as "friend" and I absolutely adore that! The kids also had fun with two Travis' around; determining which one they were talking about was quite entertaining sometimes as they decided "dad" was no longer appropriate. 

The beach life would not be in my favor (well, as far as productivity is concerned)... All I wanted to do was lay on the beach (under an umbrella, of course), read, and then snooze. Oh, and eat! Speaking of, today starts portion control. This gal has eaten almost everything in sight since getting back on US soil.

Here are some snapshots of our trip.

Travis loves all things military and aviation. He was in heaven!

My "friend." I won even more points when Carter discovered I had Cheetos.

The other Travis, Carter, and Owen. Look at those cheeks!

I had to get a shot of the "Come at me bro" shirt. This is for one of my students.
And, look at that rainbow around the sun!

Of course, we can't forget about the food. McGuire's Irish Pub is the BEST restaurant in Destin. Ever since my trip to Ireland I have craved lamb stew. And not just any lamb stew- lamb stew like I had in Ireland. This restaurant did not disappoint! Those "things" that look egg rolls are just that- Reuben Egg Rolls! The meal was even better with homemade root beer.

Thanks for stopping by!
