Part 2 :)

June 26, 2009

Oh the week in Florida was amazing. It was so great to see my family and play with the little girls. They were hilarious. Maddie and Abby.

My cousin Jessie and her husband Billy went on a 4 day cruise and the girls were staying with my aunt and uncle. One day Maddie did NOT want to take a nap and said she was hungry.


We were able to take them to the pool and the beach while we were there. They are such cuties and i love them to pieces. They’re halfies like me 🙂 haha.

The entire week there was filled with unlimited amounts of amazing food. They know how to cook, and its always so ridiculously delicious.

We had fresh made dumplings from scratch (MY FAV)

doesn’t get any better than that !


They also got a new outdoor shopping mall in town that was really nice. My sister and I went after the pool one day and stopped by an italian cafe. we split an order of strawberry crepes and I got a cappucino. This was my first time trying crepes. They made them right in front of you and used fresh strawberries. The perfect mid – day treat to split .

It was a great vacation and now it’s been back to reality! I’ve had so much work but the week off was definitely worth it! Now i’m anxiously awaiting my 23rd birthday next wed and the weekend in NY for the fourth of july 🙂

July’s a great month.

    Yayy part 2!!! you already know how i feel about halfie babies…I WANT ‘EM!! hahah my boyfriend niece is also named Maddie, and although I didn’t love the name at first, i think it is SOOOOOO cute now.

    So jealous of all the fun in the sun!! Though you were pretty tanned before you went on holiday, so….are you black now? 😛 You guys are AWESOME for making dumplings from scratch. I’ve done that with my bf and it takes FOREVER. I like ’em with shrimp, mushrooms, and bean sprouts. yummmm

    I wish I could cook wontons and dumplings! And how have you never had a crepe before? My favorite was to eat them is probably with a little lemon juice and powered sugar. By the way, your cousins are awfully cute
