Happy Gasparilla! Here are a few pictures from the parties we visited, our outfits and the krewe we rolled with this year. This was the 10th and final year I wore my rubber ducky beads, as I retired them to a stranger in exchange for a tasty dinner. It's funny how beads are like currency on Gasparilla. One more reason to love Tampa!

Well, it seems I've got some catching up to do on the blog! So much has happened since my last post. Zach and I threw this NYE party, for one. We had a champagne tasting and as always - way too much food cooked by Chef Zach himself. Here are a few pictures pulled from Facebook, since our laptop is not letting me upload pictures from my camera at the moment. Have a great day!

This year, I took a girls trip to New York City to stay with my good friend Trista in her West Village apartment. The five of us played Taboo and drank champagne and wine at Trista's place, went to yummy NYC restaurants, hit up a couple clubs and a rooftop bar and visited the tree at Rockefeller Plaza. I also bought my dream bag, the Celine Belt bag and I visited two dear friends from law school who have the most gorgeous daughter and apartment. The weather was fantastic (highs in the 60s).
My favorite activity was visiting the department store windows. The Lord & Taylor window had music, lights and moving parts that included baby animals. I mean, does it get more Christmassy than that? Magical is really the only suitable word for those windows. I totally got into the holiday spirit and for the first time, I understood why some people love living in New York City.
Happy holidays to you all!

For Labor Day Weekend, Zach's sisters and their husbands came to stay with us. They brought my nephew David, so naturally I had to take a thousand pictures. *Not exaggerating* So when I only show you a couple dozen, keep in mind that I did a lot of editing. I'll be impressed if you get to the bottom of this post. :)
This is what David does when you tell him to smile. So. Adorable.
Love this face! <3
"Is it rubbed in?" Ha! Zach's first and last experience using zinc sunblock
This was David's first trip to the beach!
David playing with Aunt Tami...
and Uncle Zach
Love this sweet family!

How has your summer been? One of the highlights of our summer has been our recent trip to Lake George, New York. We stayed at our friend's vacation home right on the lake. It was beautiful. On my first night, there was a meteor shower, which we got to watch on lawn chairs at the edge of the lake. You could see so many stars. The company was fantastic, the weather was perfect. We also went to a horse race at Saratoga Race Course and stayed for a couple nights with Zach's dad and his wife Karen.
To come: we are excited to have Zach's siblings stay with us over Labor Day weekend. It may not have a mountain-surrounded lake with clear water, but I like to think Tampa still has lots to offer. Mark my words - Tampa is on the cusp of becoming one of America's great cities!

Ahh Vegas. My girl Eileen recently celebrated her 30th with Trista, Shannon and me in Vegas. We stayed at the Wynn, went to clubs, the Britney Spears show, pool parties and a fabulous restaurant for a short weekend. :) We got to see Kaskade, Zedd, Tiesto and Steve Angello. My idea of a good weekend!
