I’m back!! Sorry for the delayed post, I definitely needed an extra day to get myself organized and back on schedule. Why is coming back from vacation so hard?! I had such an amazing week in South Beach visiting my parents and spending time with my Little Bear. We hit up the beach, went out to some amazing restaurants, and enjoyed cocktails in the sun!
It’s obviously amazing and awesome that my parents live right in South Beach, so we were able to both stay with them. My momma spoiled us with lots of treats! Check out this little welcome spread she had for us:
All of my favorite treats!! Doritos, garden salsa Sun Chips (best flavor), dark chocolate almonds and coconut cashews!
She also got us goodies from a local bakery–they had croissants that reminded me of being in Paris! She served us up those alongside eggs and homemade mango macadamia jam.
Apparently her mail carrier grows mangos and gave my mom 30 of them, so she made lots of jars of different mango jams and a mango coconut bread!
Little Bear and I enjoyed some shopping on Lincoln Road, an outdoor shopping strip with every store you can imagine, and hit up the beach afterwards.
The weather was awesome pretty much the entire time we were there–even though it was warm there was always a breeze on the beach.
We also visited my aunt one afternoon and lounged poolside!
Check out the view from the pool balcony.
You can see the downtown Miami skyline in the background. After getting some sun, my aunt welcomed us to her condo with an insane spread!
She made burrata and heirloom tomato salad, proscuitto wrapped asparagus, mini mushroom turnovers, goat cheese stuffed baby peppers, and cheese and crackers. SO GOOD. Then my mom baked cookies and we had champagne and cocktails!
We went out to some pretty amazing restaurants with my parents, including one place called Cibo where they have a wine angel! The restaurant has a wall of wine that holds like 3,500 bottles and this lady attaches herself to a harness and goes and gets it! I totally missed my calling.
We definitely enjoyed our family dinners.
Oh and fun fact, one of my Little Bear’s talents is she knows how to make napkin boobs and taught my mom how to do it.
My dad was thrilled.
My last night in South Beach included dinner at a Turkish restaurant complete with a belly dancer!
The food and dancing were both incredible. I’m so happy and thankful I was able to spend time with my family and my Little Bear.
Although I miss them already, I’m happy to be back home with my husband and pup.
Oh and fun fact–I found $55 on the airport escalator! I chased the guy down who was in front of me but he said it didn’t belong to him, so I got myself a nice little treat :).
Hope you guys have a great Tuesday!
Best vacation you’ve taken so far this summer?
When the last time you got lucky and found money?!
