Sailing – Staycation Fun on Pensacola Beach!

Another activity we did during our Staycation was some sailing. My husband has experience with all types of boats, so we knew we would be in experienced hands with him at the mast.  We rented our Hobie Getaway from Key Sailing, and the service was great!  While my husband and I had an amazing time, […]

Blue Angel Weekend–Tips for Spending the Day at the Beach

This past weekend we had a wonderful long weekend enjoying the beach and the Blue Angels! My husband and I took Thursday and Friday off, so we got to spend some quality time as a family and enjoy a little beach staycation. Pensacola is home to the Blue Angels, so they do their shows right […]

Freezing in Florida

We had a pretty cold week here in Florida – I know it was nowhere near as bad as the rest of the country, but for us it was pretty extreme!  My neighborhood actually lost power on the second night of the cold snap, and it took nine hours before we were online again.  Here […]

Weekend Fun

What a busy weekend!  We went on a 5K with a lot of my coworkers, then to Day of Play, and then we biked around the beach.  All of this was on Saturday!  We started off the morning doing a 5K.  It was the first one for several of my coworkers, and they did great!  […]

Don’t you hate it when you let your nerves get the better of you?  Today I’m leaving on a business trip.  I thought I was fine with it, but this morning I woke up anxious about the whole thing.  Little Miss is staying with her grandparents, so I know she’ll be fine, but there is […]

We got a boat!

My husband has been hinting around for a while that he wanted a boat.  Not a big, expensive boat, but a small, low maintenance, easy to put in the water boat.  I finally found a GREAT deal on Craigslist, so we’re now boat owners!  It’s basically a glorified jet ski, but for us it’s perfect.  […]
