Before I found out I was pregnant we had big plans for our 2nd year wedding anniversary. As a matter of fact, I was just about to book our week long cruise the very day I found out we were having a baby. Needless to say there was a big change of plan but we still wanted to have fun and get away from it all, even if it was for a weekend. So we loaded up the car and took a quick trip down south to Fort Lauderdale and play tourists for the weekend.

Crazy downpours and thunderstorms put a damper on the beach plans but we improvised and still had a blast. We hunkered down indoors at the Sawgrass Mall and the movies Saturday night to see Think Like A Man. Let me tell you, it is the funniest movie we have ever seen in a very long time.
The weather was much nicer to us on Sunday so we took a drive down Fort Lauderdale beach to check out the big money mansions as the few brave swimmers on the beach.
We kept on driving all along the coast until we were home, cruising through the cities and towns reserved for even bigger mansions, yachts, and resorts. When the sun made it’s appearance we got out and walked along the pier in Ocean Ridge, watching the water from the inter-coastal rush out into the pretty blue ocean. Plenty of people were out there with their fishing poles and boats taking advantage of the scores of fish that were out there. Even the seagulls were having fun!
With the craziness of having a baby and trying to keep up with day to day had be super stressed and this little getaway was just what I needed. It made me appreciate living down here in a place where in just a short drive I can be away from everything and just disappear in the sea of tourists that visit all year round.
How was your weekend?
