Mini Vaca!

This past weekend we were fortunate enough to go on a mini vacation to Siesta Key with Daniel's family! Daniel's family vacations here every year and it's always a blast! 

In one of the surf shops we went into we saw these shark teeth. The one in the middle was almost the size of my hand! Crazy scary! 

Big Olaf's is a must in Siesta Key, great ice cream! We made a few stops here...

These grapes caught my attention at Publix, so we had to try them! Pretty interesting!

Kristina joined the nose ring club while we were there! Yay for Ramirez girls and nose rings!

Lots of much needed relaxing time for these newlyweds! Can you tell we got some sun? Haha.

We also went to the movies, out to dinner, and more window shopping! My husband is so handsome! I'm a lucky girl!

Before leaving we stopped at one our favorite and cutest coffee shop! Good stuff!

Sad faces as we say good bye to Siesta Key!

We ended up stopping at Downtown Disney on the way home and ate at one of my favorite restaurants! This mini vacation was the perfect way to end my summer, since today was my first day of school! Hope you all had as great as a weekend as we did!

Hallo, dis is tha Blog Post.

Tori and I had another great week in Melbourne, still exploring and getting to know or new city, and having a good time doing so! Last Saturday we went to Florida Tech's botanical garden for an adventurous walk and ended up finding Melbourne's first school which was so tiny yet exciting for the teacher to be! The trail itself was beautiful as well!

Continuing the adventure, Tori went on a 10.5 miles bike ride this week and found a trail where she encountered all sorts of wild life. I didn't get to go with her (I was working) but the pictures she took make me excited for when I do. 

Just a picture of our Florida sky at night!

Tori also made us some wonderful meals this week! Some creative and new, and at least one a replication of a personal favorite. Shown below are Zucchini Pizza things with noodles and "healthy" Chick-fil-a chicken and sauce! I don't know all the ingredients (sorry) but I do know that it was very very very tasty! and with the Chick-fil-a chicken, we also had Zucchini fries from the scraps of the Zucchini Pizza!

Not only did she get creative with meal choices, she also got crafty and made a headband and decorated some plain coffee mugs! I'm lucky to have such a creative woman!

Friday, we were lucky to spend the day with Audrey and Michael. They drove down to visit and we went to the beach, the Incredible Pets store, and out to dinner at Pizza Gallery! It was wonderful spending the day with such great people!

Last thing we did was drive to Orlando where I took the GRE. Hopefully I did well enough to get accepted to UCF for grad school! Here's to hoping! Regardless, we decided to go to one of our favorite desert places in Orlando to celebrate the completion of the test, Jeremiah's!

Good Morning Friends!

Happy Weekend! It's been a great week! Pictured above are the orchids Daniel got me for our 2 months of marriage! (Somehow, it didn't make it to last weeks post!) Last Sunday, we went to Luau for our church! It was fun! We loved the opportunity to get to know some more people. Somehow, we even ended up in a hula hoop contest, which was to The Wobble. So obviously, we did the dance while hula hooping... Skill. I won! Hahaha. This week was the usual school and work for us. I had my final exam Thursday, hence the study picture. I ended up getting over 100% as my final grade, which I was pretty excited about!

This week, I did a lot of creative cooking and just made up some random things. Haha. I have enjoyed making so many fun recipes from Pinterest lately, like this Feta and Parmesean Zucchini/Squash bake! It was so yummy! The recipe can be found here!

We also went on a Starbucks date last night and got Frappuccinos! Feels like it has been forever since we have had one! Yum!

I have also been wanting to share the Etsy shops I purchased from for our wedding! I feel like Etsy played a big role on our big day! I love Etsy! I have a lot of friends engaged and such, so I thought I'd share the love! These are just a few things that made our engagement/wedding special and cute! Check them out!
