Daytona Beach trip.

July 30, 2010

Last week, Lamar and I spent a weekend at Daytona Beach, Florida with some friends. The weather was beautiful and perfect. I could not have asked for more. I’d love to share a few photos, if you would like to see. We went to my all-time favorite restaurant Aunt Catfish’s

We ate yummy homemade ice cream at a cute little shop called Cow Licks…

…we loved that cow.

Then we went over to the boardwalk one night  for fireworks and to ride the ferris wheel. We loved the ferris wheel so much we rode it twice!  There is something about a ferris wheel ride that make me so giddy happy.

The next day, we went to the Ponce de Leon inlet lighthouse–one of the tallest lighthouses in the nation.

So what did we do?  We climbed to the top!

When we weren’t eating, riding ferris wheels or climbing lighthouses we were layin’ on the beach. It was mine and Lamar’s first trip to the beach together and it was wonderful. Looking forward to going back. (:

I have never found a planner that has everything I wanted and needed…until now.

I’m going to go ahead and admit that I am one of those crazy planning people who must write down every appointment, birthday, event or I will forget.  I am lost without my planner. That being said, I had to search high and low for a planner that had all the works: large spaces to write for each day, blank pages to jot notes, tabs (those tiny flaps that are oh, so under appreciated..until you have a planner that doesn’t have them), cuteness and last? Little animal stickers, of course. (:

My good friend, Mary Hannah, introduced me to Lilly Pulitzer planners. And…I met my match.

Oh, and every month has its own theme and tongue-twister. Fun!


Doesn’t it look magical?

Hello loves! For a while I have wanted to try this new baked macaroni recipe, so last night I made it for my boyfriend. It is the best recipe and was so delicious. I think I really impressed Lamar. 🙂 Thank you Giada De Laurentiis!

Here is a picture of it, however it is not very pretty. I promise it tastes good!


Happy baking!
