Florda Fun

I know, I am a slacker. It has been 3 weeks since I have written a blog. It is not because I did not want to, but things have been nuttier than a fruit cake lately. Work is in overdrive, we took a vacation and then I had 36 hours at home before heading out to California. I know, wha, wha, but add onto that a fever, a cold and lack a sleep, and that makes Michelle a very cranky girl.

Our trip to Florida was fun. We were all over the place, went to the pool, did fun things and saw friends and family. Here's some things I learned while I was on vacation:

1) No matter how overcast it is, wear sunscreen. I know, seems pretty obvious. But I was shivering so I figured, how is that even possible? Well it is and Tom and I looked like ripe tomatoes our 1st 1/2 day in Florida.

2) Shuffleboard is dangerous - you can easily lose a foot, or at least a toe, if you do not pay attention.

3) Miniature golf is a misnomer when the course looks like a moguls ski hill, the holes are over 100 feet long and it is a par 61. Did I also mention it took over 1 1/2 hours to play? I had the shot of the night though, a whole in one, where I promptly did my rock star pose.

4) Baseball rules do not apply in Spring training. It was thundering and lightening for 3 innings before the game was finally called in the 5th inning. Who knew that thunder and lightening is not dangerous in Florida?

5) Where but Miami can you be parking your car, when you spot the paparazzi chasing after Kim Kardashian. What really has she done?

6) Golf cart rides daily are a must. We went searching for alligators every day. What if we found one on land right near us? Really, I'm not sure we would have wanted to find them at that point.

7) The blue hairs flood the restaurants at 4:30 and the line is out the door. Go at 6 pm and you have the place to yourself!

8) Private Zoos are interesting. We were walking by the free roaming flamingos when we stumbled into the Jesus gardens. And you can't wear high heels to this zoo, because they apparently scare the birds. Who knew?

9) WT people are everywhere. While on Naples Pier, we ran across a shirtless wonder with a tattoo that said "Lady Luva." Are you kidding me? I am sure that is a positive role model for the kid you were dragging around with you.

10) Derek Jeter loves me! After waving at him like 5 times, he tipped his baseball cap at me during the inning at me. All the girl's behind me were jealous!

Oh, good times!
