beach weekend 2013.

This past weekend I had the amazing opportunity to travel down to Florida with my boyfriend and his parents. We spent the {long} weekend at their apartment in Naples, Florida. I was so lucky to go and enjoy the relaxing 4 days! Here’s the recap:

On Friday we headed off to Florida. We had a late night flight and barely made it. An hour of standstill traffic left me driving 80+ and just getting to the gate with 2 minutes to spare! Needless to say it was an exciting start to the trip..

^breakfast and snacks were had in the apartment throughout the day. The boy and I went for a speedy run, which left me hungry the rest of the day! Food and snacks included pumpkin bread, pumpkin cream cheese, eggs, hummus, cheese, and veggies^

^for a late lunch we headed out and grabbed some food at a sports bar. I actually ended up with a pretty impressive salad! Then my boyfriend’s mom and I headed out to get some more decor for their apartment while the boys watched a football game. Go Packs!^

^we spent the rest of the day chilling on the beach. It was AWESOME. You’re never too old for sandcastles- especially if you have a great best friend to build one with!^
