Florida Weekly Love

Beaches + Sarasota + Design = Weekly Love

May 3, 2012

Last Updated:

Into my second week of Florida retiree living, and I’m loving the weather. I’d still like to transport some Portland coffee shops and food carts here, but I’ll survive a few more weeks I’m sure. Here’s what’s been keeping me busy this week.

This week:

Sarasota – we attended a very Great Gatsby-ish wedding in Sarasota over the weekend (although I think the theme was something about spring in a castle). Adorbs. And a perfect excuse to buy new shoes.
Hyatt Regency Sarasota – overpriced? Yes. A lovely pool? Yes. Nickle & dimed for wifi? Yes. Amazing view? Yes. C’est la vie.
Thai + Mexican = Nitally’s – I discovered this Thai Mex place in St Petersburg in November, so I was pleased to find that it was just as tasty the second time!
Florida beaches – I go to the beach every day. Yes, every day. The closest beach is less than a mile away, but my favorite thus far is Pass-a-Grille beach south of St Pete Beach.
lazy Sundays – After a weekend of wedding shenanigans and meeting five million people, it was nice to have a lazy Sunday at “home” in Treasure Island. We made Arugula Pecorino Pizza, followed by a sunset run to the beach.
BootsnAll Homepage redesign – it’s been a while in the making, so last Thursday was an exciting day at work — we launched our homepage redesign! It makes me happy to see what we’re all about front and center now. Travel on!

What are you up to this week?

    Thanks! Definitely not complaining about trading in some rain for sun this month. :)

    Those are lovely new shoes! :) I wouldn’t mind some beach weather right about now.
