Fort Lauderdale beach in December 2013.
I'm not dead, hooray! In fact, not even close. I'm still studying and trying to juggle all the basics (working, cleaning, staying healthy, speaking to friends, etc.) It's been a hard couple of months, but it should all be over soon, hopefully. Anyway, I have a blog post for you today! I know, right? Shocker! This is Part I of my trip to Florida for Christmas and New Year's. It was a lot of fun reminiscing on the beach and sunshine!
First thing we did when we got to Florida was go pick out Christmas tree and decorate it! I haven't had a real tree since I was about 6 years old... I was a little excited to say the least.
The tree was too big for the car, so they put hazard warnings on it so we could drive home with the trunk open. Oh, the things we do for Christmas!
My boyfriend Michael and my brother bringing the tree.
The tree all lit up.
All my presents for my family under the tree.
My stocking my Grandma cross-stitched for me when I was a baby. Every one in the family has their own that she made for them, it's a family tradition.
The model train at Aventura mall in Florida, which includes elements of Florida and the mall itself.
We had to let Michael have his proper American diner experience.
...complete with chocolate milkshake...
...bacon, pancakes, and fake maple syrup!
Oh, Fort Lauderdale! Can you believe my parents live only 5 minutes away from this? I still don't.
Yep, that's my kind of life.
Mom has a bodyguard that likes to protect the car... can you spot him?
