More Memorial Weekend Fun...

Well, we finally made it back to Orlando yesterday afternoon after a long weekend in south and southwest Florida...after Miami/Ft. Lauderdale/Wilton Manors we headed across the everglades to head up the Gulf Coast. It was an amazing trip...and it was the first time Bobby and I have done a real vacation together. Roommate Tim was our buffer. It worked out pretty well. Here are some random pics from Miami Beach...which was insanely crowded...of course let's go to one of the most popular beaches in the world on Memorial weekend. It was insane! We didn't get to see much of South Beach at all...and all I wanted was to see the art deco! But there was some on North Beach too....like this gem.

Actually, this place was extremely rundown. It was beyond "Grey Gardens" fabulous...complete with a backyard/empty pool full of cats. I'm not kidding. We thought it was an empty building, but on closer inspection, we discovered it was occupied! With Little Edie style residents. I was in heaven. 
Here is Bobby on the boardwalk with the beautiful Atlantic behind him...I've never been much impressed with the Ocean...never thought it that pretty...until we got down here! It is so green/blue and wonderful! I loved it!

We were driving back to the mainland from Miami Beach at sunset and Bobby took this great picture of downtown. This is after we got busted trying to drive into the fancy pantsy island full of celeb mansions. But we got stopped and pretended we were lost. We weren't fooling anyone.

These are my inspiration pics...

How much do you love this lifeguard stand? I love the color combo and think I need to make a bag with these colors! I freakin' love it.

And I love love the color combo of the blue/green and sand colors...totally needs to be a bag of some kind.
