Five for Friday! Summer travels!

I haven't posted since last Friday! Oh no! 
I promise I have reasons!! 
In short, Summer itself is the reason! Haha!
Oh, Summer travels...

Started off my trip on the 'heavy' side of things...oops!
I knew this was going to happen! I was not surprised when I had to pay extra for the weight of my luggage! What do you expect? I am gone for over a month!
All I said was...."oops!" haha!

My sister (the one in the black dress) is getting married in October and she had her bridal shower this past weekend. It was so beautiful! Almost as beautiful as her! I had so much fun getting to be with my family. Such a great girls day! This picture is all of my sisters, me, my mom, and my nana! <3

You know what going home to FL means!? Seeing my niece! She is sooooo perfect! I am so obsessed with her! How do you fight the urge to squeeze her all of the time? I love this picture because she is playing with toys from when we were little! That little elephant next to her was mine, and I actually remember playing with it! Each part of the elephant does something different...the nose rattles, one ear rattles and the other crinkles, there is a mirror on one foot and a noise maker on the other get the idea! So fun! I bet they don't make that toy anymore! If they do, please let me know! I will need to get one for my future children!!!

After spending a few days in Florida, one of my sisters, my mom, the pets, and I all got in the car to head up to the mountains! We will be here for most of the Summer! The car ride up is super fun because we just relax and enjoy the trip! We stop halfway at the same hotel, every time! We joke because my mom is now a 'gold member' there! Haha! Anyway, I was in the back seat with two of our amazing dogs! They are the cuuuuutest! If you have read some of my older posts, you may notice that my little Cow resembles these two sweet things! :)

Any room for me?

I am going to be doing a lot of "getting fit" this Summer! My mom and sister are here at the mountain house, too, and we all have big plans! Haha! Hopefully I can get up off of the couch for a few minutes...
I took this picture after my first round of Body Pump without my 'real' class! I found a youtube video of a class and did that in our gym! Haha! It was great actually! I do miss my regular instructor, though! She is the best!

My sister and I tried to feed a new turtle friend...he was not hungry for lettuce or strawberries today. Maybe tomorrow?

Hello perfect room! I am sooo in love with the room I get to have when we come to the mountains! It is so amazing to wake up and only see trees and mountains! Love love love love! 

I hope you all have a great weekend! I will be working on updating some of my older products, and I will post to let you know so that you can re-download the updated copy! I have a few new things to do, too...but I want to get the updating off of my list, first! :)
