I can't believe it's been a month since our trip to the beach! It was our one last hurrah before our lives are forever changed by this little babe that will be joining us so soon. A babymoon as it's called today.

Our plans for this vacation: To hit the beach and pool, that's about it. My only must-haves were that it be along the coast. And not be in an area where there were things we'd like to do besides just relax. Otherwise, I really didn't care where we ended up.

So after a bit of searching and pricing out various options, Ft. Lauderdale Beach, FL won our bid.

Thanks to J's parents' timeshare, we were able to get a 1-bedroom condo a block from the beach. It was seriously perfect. Having a full kitchen was awesome. So we made one big grocery run on our first day there with plans to eat most breakfasts and lunches at our place, or on the beach.

Here's a recap of our week through iPhone pics:

Yogurt parfaits for breakfast on the balcony. And lots of fresh fruit to snack on throughout the day.

Having a blender in our room was awesome for J. Frozen mango margaritas to-go! And I may have enjoyed a virgin pina colada or two by the pool. 

We took the water taxi downtown one afternoon which was awesome. It was a little too hot to be walking around at 32 weeks preggo but we loved touring the intercoastal and hearing all about the ridiculous houses. I'd highly recommend it.

Mornings included walks to Starbucks for Green Tea - Lemonades. Afternoons included frozen (virgin) cocktails to-go by recycling our cups. 

On our last full day we headed up the coast to Lauderdale by the Sea. What a fantastic area! 

One of these fro-yo's is not like the other....oops.

We had such a fantastic trip in Ft. Lauderdale and we can't wait to go back. One of J's uncles lives there and we were able to spend quality time with him throughout the week. If only I could have indulged in a few drinks with the guys! Next time for sure. Especially when there are half-priced bottles of wine to be had. MA, get on that!

Next trip will include our little love. Crazy! (in a fantastically awesome way)

  1. My grandmother lived in LBTS since I was in high school so I have been there many many times. It is a great area and I love that we can walk to all the restaurants! I'm so glad you had a relaxing time and could hang out at the beach before the baby comes.
