Living Large

     About 3 days a go I got back from a family trip to Florida. We stayed in Fort Lauderdale and drove around to different cities each day. We went to Hollywood, Miami, Key Largo, ect. I ate at so many different restaurants and had some amazing meals! I took so many pictures of both the food and the activities and I will be posting most, if not all, of them! I decided to organize the posts, so here are some of my daily meals (not including dessert ;)). I hope this doesn't make you too hungry!
Yogurt Parfat: vanilla yogurt, craison/nut-granola, fresh berries

Mahi Mahi Salad: grilled mahi mahi, lettuce, veggies, croutons, balsamic dressing

Tacos: mild lean meat, coleslaw, tortilla chips

Baked Penne: penne pasta, red sauce, cheese (tons), meatballs

Cobb Salad: lettuce, avacado,chickpeas,veggies,grilled chicken, balsamic dressing

Beach Vacation Planning

      Whenever I go on vacation I am always the last-minute packer of the family. I'm so busy running around and making sure everyone else is good to go. A couple years ago I was on a trip and realized that I had forgotten tons of stuff! To prevent this from happening again I decided to  write up a checklist. Since writing one, I haven't forgotten (that many) items! This list is for Beach vacations, but you can use it for other trips too! It may not include everything, but its a basic outline of what I like to have with me.
