i'm back from vacation. usually, i'm ready to get home after i've been gone for a few days. i'm ready for a schedule again. this time, i could have stayed on vacation forever. well, maybe not forever, but definitely longer.
i went to marco island, FL with my mom for about 4 days, and then headed home to chicago for a couple days to spend some time with my boyfriend. florida was so great. although a bit chilly for laying out by the pool, my mom and i did plenty of shopping, spending time outside walking and biking, and good eating. the last day we were there was perfect for being by the pool, and we both ended up with a little more sun than expected. let's just say sleeping that night was a little painful.
we got back to chicago just in time for the 50 degree weather, which helped ease me back into being in the cold! my parents, me and mike went up to our lakehouse in wisconsin for the night, after stopping by my cousin's to see their new puppy. who, by the way, is so cute i could barely handle it. we spent the night playing some games and watching the duke vs. carolina game (go duke!). sunday morning, we went to my cousin's volleyball tournament to see her play. i can't believe how fast she's grown up. i remember being young and hating it when my older relatives would tell me to stop growing (mostly because i always wanted to be older) and now i do it to them. oh well. i guess that's only natural.
so, that's what i was doing for the past week. it was pretty nice and i'm going to miss being on vacation. but i also missed my cats and blogging, so i'm kinda happy to get back to north carolina.
