And then we went to...

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

This summer has been the season of a thousand trips, and we're loving every minute of it. This weekend we flew to Tampa for a friend's wedding. Alan and Melanie are adorable, and we had a blast seeing Grahm's old college friends.
Girrrrl, I'm watching you hold onto my man. Check yo'self.
Here I caught him doing his one and only decent groomsman duty. Other "duties" may or may not have included Henna tattooing the groom from neck to ankle the night before his wedding and replacing all of his underwear with man thongs just before they left for the honeymoon. Bet that was a crack of surprise. (Am I the worst wife ever if I knew of his plans beforehand, but did nothing to prevent them? My forever apologies, Melanie!)
Listen, Florida. You're beautiful and fantastically fun and all, but when I spend an hour curling my hair to a perfection that mirrored a poodle dying on my head (in a good way), I expect it to last all day--not only that, but well into tomorrow. Big dreams, apparently. My hair wilted into a pizazz-less wonder before I could lock and load the hairspray.
Sunday evening, we rented a car and drove to Sarasota. Just the two of us. I really wanted to reenact this famous statue, but I was too embarrassed to kiss while a stranger takes our photo. Besides, that death grip doesn't look entirely comfortable.
Do you spy a 13-week-old Baby Roach?
I promise we don't have some weird obsession with our last name, but our sandcastle was looking more like two big mounds of nothing (well, before Grahm decided to put dark seashells on the top and declared that they were "Boobs!"). So, of course, we decided to "make" a roach at the Siesta Keys beach.
We also went to the Selby Botanical Gardens and saw some amazing views, which may or may not have included two lizards getting their groove on. (You know you're not ready for parenthood when you're laughing and pointing like a five-year-old.)

Florida, we miss you already!

You're adorable! :) Yay for fun weddings! Jared has been in a million and I always joke that his 'partner' better not be getting to cozy when they walk down the aisle ;)
