Aaahhh....I had such a FABULOUS weekend!  It was perfect.  I was able to see so many people that I love, including cousins that I hadn't seen in 10+ years!  I helped my best friend to pick out her BEAUTIFUL wedding dress after staying up way too late the night before with her sharing a bottle of wine and catching up.  I shopped 'till I dropped with my Momma and found some great new workout clothes and fantastic deals at the outlets.  I talked about photography with my daddy and picked up some new tips for the blog (along with a new lens for my birthday coming up!!!).  All-in-all it was a lovely, busy, emotionally fulfilling weekend in Florida...and the weather was perfect too!  :)

A few foodie highlights from the weekend (or, the only food pictures I managed to take...).

I LOVE Pho.  Love it.  We have no Pho in Charlottesville, a fact that I have never understood.  We have such fabulous restaurants and so much ethnic diversity in those restaurants that I just can't understand why Pho has been overlooked.  Its so fresh, healthy and fabulous...I was in heaven.

A few other restaurant highlights:

For lunch on Friday, before my Momma and I shopped like crazy (we needed fuel!!!) we stopped at Sweet Tomatoes.  I loaded up with a big salad, a bowl of golden yam soup (delicious!!!) and a bowl of frozen yogurt.  So tasty...I wish we had them in Virginia!

I had a great meal at Milliken's Reef in Cape Canaveral with my best friend and her fiance, where I tried conch for the first time and decided I'm not a huge fan.  Its just a little too chewy for me.  I also had lobster bisque, which was fabulous, and a lemon drop martini...!

For all you Orlando bloggers and readers out there, we had breakfast before dress shopping on Saturday at a restaurant called First Watch.  Apparently there are several of them around the city.  They had a great healthy section on the menu, and I chose the Tri-Athlete Omelet which was fabulous.  Egg whites with lots of veggies inside, no cheese, fresh fruit and an english muffin on the side.  I highly recommend this restaurant to all of you Central Floridians.

We had Moe's after dress shopping, always a delicious option!  I miss Moe's so much, we don't have one near us.  :(

Look at the great loot I got while shopping with my momma!

LOTS of new workout clothes...I'm pretty excited about them.  I found a brand of yoga clothes at TJ Maxx that I hadn't heard of before, Kyodan. Ladies...this is some seriously comfortable, flattering and CUTE yoga gear!  I'm not typically the matchy-matchy workout gear girl, but I think that this stuff is subtle enough to not be obnoxious.  I'm really excited to try some of it out tonight at my class!  I also picked up a couple of my favorite Champion sports bras and a cute new pair of running shorts.  Exciting!

Alrighty, I'll be back with a regular post tonight.  I've missed you guys!!!
