Vacation Week 1

We meet again friends!

Two days in a row. Fancy!

I am still talking about November but after today’s post I promise I am done.

Today I want to talk about the week before Thanksgiving. #babybigtruck, Mr. Big Truck and myself hopped on a plane and took off down to Florida to visit my father and his wife. We spent the week there and had a great time. The weather was not the warmest I have ever experienced in FL but it was warmer than it was home in NJ. We didn’t have a whole lot planned other than going to dinner one night sans the little, going on a boat lunch cruise and just chilling out with family.

I packed us up on Saturday night and thinking “It’s Florida it’s gonna be warm, I am not gonna pack any jeans for myself.” I did however pack jeans for #babybigtruck and Mr. Big Truck wore jeans down to FL.

Monday it was nice and warm and we spent some time at the pool and then went for a walk to lunch and then Mr. Big Truck cooked dinner for everyone. After dinner #babybigtruck legit fell asleep at the table in my lap because girlfriend was straight up exhausted. I wish someone would have snapped a picture of that.


She LOVED the pool!


The fresh air must have worn her out she snoozed in the stroller on our walk back from lunch.

That evening after enjoying said time at the pool because it was gloriously warm we happened to look at the weather for the next day and saw that it was going to be chilly. Um really?!?! I had no jeans! After we put #babybigtruck to bed Mr. Big Truck and I set out for the local mall so I could hit up Old Navy and get a pair.  Mr. Big Truck also said he wanted to stop at another store. Ok? I asked him for what and he said your birthday present. Ummmm really?!?! He told me that what he originally had gotten me for my birthday was no in yet and so he wanted me to have something else instead. We went to Sports Authority and he got me a new fitbit charge. Last Christmas he got me a fitbit but it died. That is a story for another day.

Tuesday was mt actual birthday and we went out to breakfast with Dad and Molly. We also went house hunting with them. Exciting! I can not wait till they find something! We saw some really nice places! Pops made his homemade sauce and pasta for dinner and it was delicious as usual! Mr. Big Truck even went out on a 2 hour adventure to get me cupcakes and I have to say they were amazing!


#babybigtruck helped me blow out the candle which resulted in me using my fingers to snuff it out. Girlfriend then proceeded to help me eat my cupcake. Girl after my own heart!

Wednesday we got up and again it was chilly so we set out for Bass Pro Shops. There are none close to us in NJ so when we can go we do. That evening we went out to dinner sans #babybigtruck to celebrate my birthday and our first wedding anniversary.

Thursday Dad and Molly booked a day cruise down the Intercostal which also included lunch. It was a nice sunny but cool day so it was perfect. As we cruised the captain told us about all the famous people who lived along the Intercostal. The houses were amazing and gorgeous.



Three generations!


Friday was our wedding anniversary. We went out house hunting with Dad and Molly again and then we went to lunch with them. When we got back to their house I packed us up since we were leaving bright and early Saturday morning.

Overall we had a great week and we can not wait to go back!

  Hugs, Nikki
