Let’s Go to St. Augustine Part 1 Where to Sleep and Eat!

If you’re ever in Florida make sure you make St. Augustine part of your vacation destination. We live in Florida and always feel the need to leave the state for vacation, but on this occasion we decided to stay “local”. By the time you get done reading my posts, you’ll be booking your next vacation here. Smile

  • First of all, find a place to stay. There are literally tons of places to stay. And most are in walking distance to everything! Yay! If it’s just the two of you there are numerous B & B’s right in the heart of town. But because there were 4 of us we decided to rent a house for the few days we were there. This is where we stayed. You can read all about it and see tons of pictures and get prices HERE. Even though this place was surrounded by other homes, the owners went to great lengths to make it feel very private. We would definitely stay there again.

  • Next decide what you are going to do for food. I know this sounds silly but planning ahead really helps when you’ve been walking around all day and find yourself starving. We brought some food to eat while at the house but also did some research online and read reviews about a few places to eat out at and had them on the list to try. All reasonably priced since there are 4 of us to feed.

We ate breakfast a couple of times at Georgie’s Diner. I loved this place. It was so my style. Very 50’s dinerish. This place also knows how to pile on the food.  Because of that, we didn’t have to eat lunch until very late, which gave us plenty of time to explore.

Another day we ate lunch at a place called Barnacle Bills. YUM! I had the fried shrimp. Oh yeah baby, so good!

And then the last place we ate at was THE best bbq I’ve ever had. Welcome to Mojo’s BBQ! Their Mojo sauce is nothing short of spectacular. The brisket was perfectly cooked and the sides were all outstanding.

  • Now when bringing you’re own food (if not traveling too far away) or if you plan on buying it when you get here, think quick and easy. It’s vacation after all. I still try to eat well on vacation but I definitely let the ol’ diet slide a little too. We brought things like frozen shrimp, ready made burgers and frozen veggies. Breakfast items are easy. Eggs, oatmeal, bacon, cereal etc. If you have a hubby who loves to grill, that’s just a total bonus for the wifey.

Okay, now that we covered places to stay and eat, my next post will be all about things to do and having fun! Yay!!

Have a lovely day my friends.

Friday Funnies! Soccer Shootout!

friday funnies

Well hello everybody. Sorry I’ve been MIA. My whole family and I came down with the flu over the past 2 weeks and it hasn’t been fun, but we’re all good now. Yay!

Todays Friday funny is one I showed to my kids a few days ago. They LOVE soccer and this was just too funny not to share. Even if you don’t like soccer you’ll find it funny. And don’t worry, it’s all done in fun. (You’ll see what I mean when you watch it.)

Enjoy!

Now go spread some funny to a world that needs a little laughter.
HUGS!

Line Drying Pt. 2

Okay so it’s been 6 years since my first post about line drying but better late than never right?

If you missed my first post about line drying it basically gave you a run down on how much money we saved. You can find that HERE!

But today I’m going to tell you other reasons why it’s good to line dry, besides saving money.

1. It’s therapeutic. Consider it free therapy. Being outside and soaking in some sunshine and breathing in fresh air is just good for the soul. It is I tell ya!

2. It motivates me to buy cuter underwear. (You never know what the neighbors might see. Give them something fun to look at!) Plus, cuter underwear may improve marital bliss. That is if you’re married. If you’re not it will still put a spring in your step just knowing that you got some super cute underwear on. Go on, try it. I dare ya!Smile

3. If you have children you are setting the example of how to be frugal; a different way of doing things. Plus when my 11 year old was younger he loved to hand me the clothes as I put them on the line. Get them started young in helping with chores and they’ll be more prepared for life when they go out on their own. Which can never happen because they’re my babies. Smile with tongue out

4. It’s a good workout. Especially if you’re trying to hang them out on a super windy day and you start laughing so hard your abs hurt. Here’s a video my husband recording of one such line drying experience.

Here’s Pt. 1, when I’m actually getting them hung up. This is older video because our house isn’t that smurf blue any more. Smile

And here’s Pt. 2 after they’ve been hung awhile and I go to check on them. SmileYou’re welcome!

Now I know a lot of you just can’t line dry because of one reason or another and that’s okay. I hope you enjoyed this post any way. Smile

Have a lovely day my friends!
