I left Thursday for Ocala and made it in time to stop in and catch up with my old youth pastor and have dinner with my grandparents. Friday night I stopped by Natalie's house and ended up talking to her and her sister Sadi for 2 hrs before heading over and staying with my mom. We were up till close to 1 watching Best in Show, Such a funny movie!
Friday was a fun-filled day with my 3 best friends! It started with a 2hr Breakfast at Wolfy's with Brooke. We only got half portions of biscuits and gravy because we needed to save room for Latino's Y Mas for lunch! After breakfast we decided to go check out a fellow bloggers boutique. I started following her a few months ago without even realizing she was from my home town. She has the most adorable boutique and you can shop online at "A Cut Above" (and her blog is "Diary of a Southern Brunette"). I introduced myself to Brittney and told her I heard about her shop from her blog. She was very sweet and gave me this cute pink koozie!
After a little shopping Brooke and I met up with Emily and Natalie for some yummy lunch at Latino's Y Mas( one of my favorite restaurants). We had a good time talking for a few hours and catching up! I miss being able to have lunch with these girls! After that Brooke, Emily and I went over to see Emily's mom's new house. We ended up talking ( and eating again...are you seeing a pattern here?) for a few hours before we realized it was after 5 and I still needed to drive to Daytona.

I went home to pick up my little brother Jacob and drove to Daytona to meet up with my sisters Ilissa and Mariah and Mariah's boyfriend Ryan for dinner. After dinner I met up with my love and our friends Jeremy and Mandie and we checked into our hotel.
Saturday Brian and I got up bright and early to do some deep sea fishing! Ilissa works for a water sports company and was able to get us a 4 hour chartered fishing trip for free! Within the first minute of dropping my line I caught a shark! Unfortunately he hopped off the line before we could get him in the boat , so no pics! All together we caught about 6 sharks and 3 smaller fish. It was a lot of fun but wore me out! Next time I know that if we are going to do other water sports that I need to do them first . After fishing we did a little tubing then went to lunch. Brian and I were so tired after lunch that we decided to just head back down south. I was asleep by 9pm and slept for about 11 hours + a 2 hour nap the next day!
We had such a great time and cant wait to try parasailing someday soon! I'll leave you with some pictures from our fishing trip :-)
