June 29, 2016 - Mars goes Direct

This is pretty informative about Mars going direct.  I've definitely felt the last couple of months (while Mars was retrograde that things are just not moving - I'm SO impatient and have felt so stuck.  So we'll see if things start picking up now - especially more towards July 17th as she talks about in her video.  Should be interesting!

Road Trip Day 1: To Ft. Lauderdale

So as you might have seen in a previous post, I went on a week long road trip up and down the coast of Florida.  I live in Fernandina Beach, FL which is Northeastern FL so it was perfect to start my journey there.  We planned to go all the way to Key West and back. 

Before that though, we had some fun times in my neighborhood.  My friend, Kelli, and her family joined my neighbor, Kelly, and her family and I for some good grilling, conversation, family time, and fire pit with smores and hot dogs!  Here are some pics:




Yes, I'm a goofball.  Haha!

That was on Thursday.  The next day we spent the day at the beach.  This is Kelly/Kelli's little ones.  Ain't it the sweetest pic?!!!


Anyways, so on Saturday (Day 1), we headed to this Pirate museum.  It was not what I was expecting and not in a good way.  But the beach looked beautiful.  Then we hit the Jupiter Lighthouse (the 2nd one I've been up in) and I actually didn't do too bad (regarding heights) this time.  Nice view, too.  Then we hit the Blowing Rocks Preserve and that was beautiful as well and it was deserted so that was sort of cool.  But we didn't stay long.  We had to go to our hotel in Ft. Lauderdale.  It was a decent hotel from what I can remember although the food was expensive at the restaurant there.  We just relaxed by the pool for the rest of the night.  So here are some pics not necessarily in order:









 




















Day 2 coming up - Ft. Lauderdale to the Everglades to Islamorada!  I might break up some of these next few days because there was so much we did!

Latest Happenings: Shark's Tooth & Garage Flooring

I know I said in a previous post I was going to post all about my vacation down the coast of Florida but I haven't gotten to it but I will!  It just takes forever to get all the pictures off my phone and time to actually write the posts but I will get to it.  But for now, I wanted to share my latest happenings.

Yesterday, after almost 2 years of living in Florida 10 minutes away from the beach, I found my first shark's tooth!  I thought I'd never find one but I did it! 


 
 
Then today, I installed my new garage flooring from Race Deck.  I won a giveaway that Classic Motorsports Magazine was holding for $1600 worth of garage flooring.  It is pretty easy to put together - you just snap it into place.  Here is the results:

Trip Down Florida Coast (Ft. Lauderdale/Keys/Miami)

So I just got back from an awesome vacation!  My friend from Ohio and her family (hubby and 4 boys) came down from Ohio (where I'm from).  I live in Fernandina Beach, FL so I have the beach at my disposal.  So I took off work from June 3 (Friday) and just got back to work today.  We spent some time in Fernandina Beach on Thursday/Friday then left for Ft. Lauderdale Saturday morning.  Spent a couple days there then headed to the Keys for 4-5 days then headed back up to Miami for a couple days then back home to enjoy my town/beach for another day.


I am planning on posting starting sometime this week each day and where we went/stayed/ate at.  But for now, here are a couple of pics to peak your interest.


Me and my friend outside our hotel in Islamorada, FL (in the Keys).




And here is the most beautiful pic of all the pics I took (in my opinion).  This was taken up on a hill at Bahia Honda State Park (in Bahia Honda Key).  Such incredible beauty in the Keys.

Won $1600 Worth of RaceDeck Garage Flooring!

My biggest win of the year so far!  I'm pretty excited.  Who ever gets to have a cool garage floor?  This girl now thanks to Classic Motorsports Magazine and RaceDeck!  Yay!  I entered a sweepstakes and I ended up winning it!  I am going to get a design/colors like below but my border will be black instead of red.  I actually was having quite the dry spell for winnings and then BAM! 


Guess I'll really have to get my mustang I want now...since I'm gonna have a fancy garage to put it in, eh?  I was putting that on the back burner...but maybe not so much now!
