Weekend Recap: Miami!

Monday, January 16, 2012
We jetted off the Miami for the weekend-- a quick getaway to soak up some sun in the hopes of getting us through the winter and a little hooray before tax season gets underway.  As usual, the weekend passed by too quickly (and by the time this posts, we'll be flying back to DC where the temp has consistently been 30+ degrees colder than here!), but I can't complain because it was the perfect weekend.

On Saturday, Andy and I walked over to the ocean side of South Beach. I'd never been to Miami, so of course, I had to see Ocean Avenue and the art deco buildings that I associate with South Beach.

The street was shut down for a little parade, art and food festival.  We wandered around, watched some vintage cars creep down the street before Patrick and Kea to join us for lunch.  Andy's close friend Patrick and his wife Kea recently moved to the Miami area and it was such a treat to spend the day with them.

We did lunch on Ocean Avenue and then headed back to our hotel which was on the bay side of South Beach.  Perfect afternoon filled with champagne cocktails for the girls, azulitas (8oz bud lights) for the boys and a fruit and cheese tray for all.

Sunday was our total chill, don't leave the hotel, reset day, and it was divine.  We dined poolside for breakfast and then retreated to our room.  Andy booked the perfect room for the weekend.  It was a 2 room suite with a little kitchenette, a living room and a balcony overlooking the pool and the bay.  Ideal for us as we weren't really enthused by the upbeat, social scene at the pool, but from our balcony, the people watching was great!  We soaked up the sun on the balcony while sipping on mojitos from the poolside bar. Andy could periodically check the NFL playoff games and I could play on my computer when I needed a break from the sun.

Now back to life and reality...
