Gone with the wind exhibit Orlando

Gone With The Wind Exhibit Orlando

Life has been very hectic in our home for the last 9 months. Last November we welcomed our baby girl. It’s been a season of joy but I told my husband recently “I need the day of Gladys” just like George Costanza was going to have the “Summer of George” (Seinfeld – The Summer of George – Season 8 – Episode 22). Remember that episode? George had 3 paid months off from work !! I would be happy just to have a whole afternoon for me. Well, my hubby was…

Scenes from our Summer

How is your Summer going? I thought I would share some scenes from our Summer season so far. It’s been fun but, surprise oh surprise, really hot here in Central Florida… just like every Summer.  Our baby girl is growing fast, giggles a lot, especially when she sees her big brother playing. She now crawls, turns and can say bah bah.  Our boy enjoyed a week of Vacation Bible School at our church and recently has been practicing jumping in the pool with the help of her Uncle Eric.  We…

Winter Park Farmer's Market

Winter Park Farmer’s Market

Here is one of our favorite places to visit on Saturday mornings: Winter Park, Florida. This charming town is located on the northeast part Orlando, Florida. They have a great Farmer’s Market with produce, plants and lots of yummy food. Yes, our Summers are very hot but the great thing about this Farmer’s Market is that afterwards you can go relax at beautiful Central Park right located right across the railroad tracks. There’s plenty to do here. Shopping, restaurants and much…

A beautiful sunset at the Fernandina Beach pier

Fernandina Beach

Just a short drive from Jacksonville, Florida (only 36 miles) you can find the small and so charming town of Fernandina Beach. Located on the northeast border of Florida and almost kissing the state of Georgia, this city has been called one of the South’s best small town getaways by Southern Living Magazine. We visited this cute place for a romantic weekend getaway. Using our always handy Hilton Honors points, we stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites Amelia Island Historic Harbor Front. This hotel was in the middle…

Amazing homemade shrimp poboy sandwich

Homemade Shrimp Po-boy Sandwich

I have been wanting to eat a really good po-boy sandwich for the longest time.  I lived in New Orleans back in the late 90’s and during my time there I enjoyed so much their Cajun and Creole cuisines.  Let’s just say that I’ve been disappointed each time I had ordered a po-boy here in Florida. I haven’t found anything as good as the real thing so I decided to make my own homemade shrimp po-boy sandwich. I was inspired by the recent opening of The Fresh Market down…

Girls Just Want to Have Fun Movie

Sarah Jessica Parker Launches Shoe Collection

Sarah Jessica Parker Launches Shoe Collection I still remember when I borrowed from a friend VHS tapes of the first three seasons of Sex and the City. It was back in 2001 when I was single, broke and dreaming of Mr. Right or “Mr. Big”. I only had in my pantry a bottle of instant coffee, some milk in the fridge, cream cheese and a bag of bagels because bagels can be very filling. I watched an entire marathon of the show on a weekend. Let’s just say I never…
