A November to Remember

on Tuesday, November 24, 2009

As you can probably figure out by my bad blogging habits, life for the G's has been rather hectic lately. Since I'm sure you're dying to know (yeah right!), here's the highlights:

  • J and I took our first trip to Sarasota and we loved it. In fact, to say that we loved it is probably an understatement. It is such a cool, unique, not your typical Florida area. The downtown is filled with unique shops and a variety of fabulous restaurants. My personal fav was a place called "Sarasota Vineyards" -- a wine bar at which you can sample 80 different kinds of wine! A wine lover's dream come true! But, I digress. There truly is no shortage of things to do...from the happening downtown, to the fun and funky St. Armands Circle, to the various keys off the coast of Sarasota that each have such unique and fascinating characteristics (one has the whitest, softest sand in the U.S., one is filled with thousands of seashells, one has shark teeth wash up onto it, and so on). In summary, Sarasota = Ahhhhhmazing.
  • Since we loved it so much, we are going back to Sarasota next month. Woot, Woot! And, we've actually been having some pretty serious conversations about thinking about moving there. Not sure we're quite ready to commit to a move like that, but J and I are seriously considering it.
  • My most beloved darling husband turned the big 2-9er! We were in Sarasota for the big day and enjoyed a fabulous day and a fabulous dinner out to celebrate. Love you baby!
  • My oh-so-traditional husband nixed my idea of going out to dinner on Thanksgiving because he wants to have a traditional, at home Thanksgiving. So, we will be hosting turkey day festivities a la casa de G. He's already been warned that he better help out with the cooking, or else.
  • It's official -- we're old. J and I both have our 10 year high school reunions this coming weekend. They could either be really fun or really lame. We'll see. At least I'll have by bestest girlfriends, Crystal and Sarah, by my side for the excitement.
  • I am proud to say that in between all of my travels, social events and responsibilities, I have managed to finish nearly all of my Christmas shopping. There is nothing like a stress-free December.

Well, that's all I've got time for this lovely evening. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!
