Hola! First of all, a HUGE thank you to everyone for the sweet sweet birthday wishes! I feel very loved thanks to you guys, you are so awesome! I had a good day. Being 26 hasn’t been too bad so far, it’s so weird my sweet 16 was TEN years ago! YIKES.
I thought I would share some pictures, etc. from our trip, we had such a good time! So, here we go! Saturday morning my parents came to my house, and then followed us to Florida. We stopped at the state line for Orange juice and a potty break.
We made really good time. We stopped at the Destin Commons for lunch and to walk around since the condo wouldn’t be ready till 3:00. We ate lunch at Panera bread, and we don’t have one by us so it was nice to get to go to.
we walked around some of the stores, my parents had never been to the Commons.
Bobby and my dad found the massage chairs at Brookstone
Bobby and I left to go check in while my mom and dad picked up my birthday ice cream cake from Coldstone.
Our condo was ready, so we unpacked the car while we waited for my parents.

after we unpacked, we headed down for a walk on the beach.

It was time for dinner (all we do is eat, seriously!) We had decided to cook a couple of nights to save money, plus we had a full kitchen so why not? We made Fajitas and after we ate it was time for presents and birthday cake (a few days early, but that’s ok!)
my family knows me well. Disney cards!
When it was time for cake, my mom said she had a surprise. She had princess crowns for everyone to wear, and she had put Disney princess candles on my cake, and we had Disney princess cake plates, how fun!
as you can see, my dad was thrilled.

Happy 26th Birthday to me!
up next….first day out on the beach!
knee update…..so walking in the sand for 4 days did NOT help my knee. I did NO running on the trip, but walked probably 8-9 miles up and down the beach over the course of the trip, so my knee stayed sore. I a going to not run the rest of the week and hopefully it will feel better by Monday!
QOTD: What is your favorite kind of birthday cake?
