Stella had a few days off last week and I wasn't really planning on going anywhere until I knew that my parents were going to be in Florida. Dad was working on some properties and Mom was heading to her condo so it just seemed like a good idea to spend some time away from this cold. Stella was delighted when we got there and so was I. I was really enjoying the sun, and I can't believe it has been since April that we were there last. There were even some questionable things growing on some of the food that I bought the last time I was there...time goes by so fast that my mom hadn't realized the food had been in there for almost a year!
When we arrived in Orlando we went shopping that evening and then drove to the condo. The rest of the time we really just hung out and enjoyed the sun. Me and Stella would sit out on the back porch reading and hanging out. Unfortunately, both Mom and I got sick while we were there. I am not certain we had the same thing but I threw up a very expensive dinner and it knocked me out of commission for a couple of days.
Poor Dad, it was his birthday too and we were all too out of it to really celebrate. Thankfully, Stella did not get sick and she was able to entertain Papa (or Pops, as she started calling him on this trip) for us.
Stella loved wearing and swimming in her adorable new suit. We bought it at the Gap the day before we left and it is the FIRST clothing item that I have paid full price for in like well...ever! It was too adorable and she needed one so I went ahead and broke all my retail rules and bought it. It was worth it because we both think it is too cute, and well...she is obviously going to wear it more than a lot of the things I buy her.
