please don't let the weekend end...

Not that I'm ever happy to see Monday morning looming around the corner, but this weekend will be particularly hard to see come to a close.

My best friend arrived on Thursday from Louisiana and we had the most amazing time. I haven't had time to upload photos yet, but I promise to post them later in the week. After I picked her up from the airport, we had lunch of flatbread pizza and cupcakes at Pane Rustica. If you live in the Tampa Bay area, you should definitely visit this little eatery for a lunch with your girlfriends. Thursday night, we had a girl's night at one the country's top steakhouses, Bern's. Bern's is another "must visit" restaurant if you are ever in the area. Even the Presidents eat here when they are in town.

Friday, we went over to Orlando for a day of fun at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. The new Simpson's ride is is well worth the long wait in line.

We spent yesterday afternoon lounging at the Sandpearl Resort. We played in the ocean waves and lounged by the pool drinking pina coladas and mojitos. For dinner, we had fresh grouper sandwiches. I am so upset with myself for not taking any pictures there, but I was feeling lazy I guess. We ended the day at Gelato Bella, where I indulged on scoops of pistachio and coconut gelato. The past few days have been just perfect.

But now I'm back to reality...papers to write, psych data to interpret, and presentations to prepare.

Hope each of you had a lovely weekend as well!

Who came to see you? Yes, I'm nosey. LOL. Glad you had a great weekend! I spent the whole weekend doing DIY projects around the house. Having an old house is always work. :(
