This Pineapple was on a Babymoon!

Miss me!?

Actually, you were probably relieved that you got a week without me bogging down your inbox, bloglovin', or Facebook newsfeed! The only person who might have missed me is my Mom, ha!

So where have I been all week? You ask...well, there's this new thing that new parents go on called a "babymoon". It's the last vacation before baby gets here. When I first heard of this idea I knew we had to go on a babymoon since we didn't really have a honeymoon (downfall of getting married at 19 and in college).

So we've been on Amelia Island, Florida for the past week, soaking up the rays, living it up in the waves, eating, eating, and more eating, and talking non-stop about the little one who will change our lives forever in less than 2 months! Rafts, coolers, and beach umbrellas are the greatest inventions when it comes spending hours on the beach. Seriously, I don't know how we lived without these things before!

Since we were without the internet (it was actually really nice not being plugged in 24/7) I wasn't able to post my weekly update (again, my mom is probably the only one who wondered why it never showed up on Wednesday). We still took my weekly picture on Wednesday even though this post is a few days late, and I've included some other pictures of our amazing week. Enjoy!

The sunsets are breathtaking!

We loved Arte's Pizza so much that we ended up eating there Monday, Wednesday, and Friday! A little ridiculous, I know, but we couldn't get enough! 

The Crab Trap was delicious! We shared crab legs and shrimp, my favorite :)

We did a little perusing around downtown and ran across a quaint little shop that sold candles...check out the scent of this candle! It actually smelled really good! ha!

We ate lunch at T-Ray's Burger Station (at one time was a gas station--looks kind of sketch, eh?) and was voted best burger in Florida! It got my vote! 

 We ate breakfast one morning at the Parkway Grille which had Uh-Mazing pancakes! 

A HUGE Thank You goes out to my Aunt June and her husband Rick for graciously allowing us to stay in their vacation home on Amelia Island for the week! Your generosity means the world to us!


  1. New reader here - and I just had to tell you that I have that candle too and everyone looks at me like I'm crazy when they see the name! It really does smell amazing though :) Glad you had a great trip!

  2. I was taken aback when I first saw the name too and I knew I had to try it, and it does smell so good! LOL Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Delighted to find you today! (yes I found you via the scrumptious banana muffins my family devoured this morning) I hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you. This looks like a refreshing place to dip my toes into all things good.



    1. So glad you found me! Those muffins are to die for, aren't they?! Feel free to splash around and I hope you enjoy :)
