Hello Friday, We're On Our Way Home!

We left Jamaica this morning, and will be traveling all day!  We left the airport at 5:00am, and we won't get home until 12:30-1:00am.  It's what you do to enjoy the Caribbean, right?!  ;)

We had a great time and can't wait until we can start planning our next trip.  Next time we'll plan on taking the kids.  I sure have fun on trips that are just for me and my sweet guy, but we sure do miss the kids when they aren't with us.

I have just a couple Friday Favorites today in order to keep this post short and sweet.

This view

I loved sitting outside working on blog post ideas and catching up on a bit of reading.  I can't wait until the weather at home gets nice enough that I can start sitting outside as well.  It will definitely be a different view, but I love the quiet and peacefulness about it, regardless of the location.


On the way down, Dan taught me how to play Cribbage.  Obviously, this isn't a new game, but it really is fun and easy.  Even more so than I thought it would be.  We played this a lot during our layovers on the way down and plan to play a bit more today on the way home.  It helps makes the time go faster.

My favorite swimsuit

This swimsuit from Athleta is the perfect one for sun tanning.  It has straps that you can add on when you are on the go, but otherwise, you can ditch the straps and work on your tan.  It also has elastic type strips that help hold the top in place.  I have other swimsuits that I love, but this was my favorite one this trip. 

This fun getaway

We had the best time on this trip, and I can't wait to share more about it.  But the thing that is my absolute favorite today is...

Heading home to our kids

We are so excited to see the kids and get some sweet hugs!

I've liked up with Andrea, Erika & Narci.
Christina, April & Natasha with Five On Friday.

I hope you all have the best Friday, and I'll see you all next week!
