Anniversary Weekend!

Ryan and I had such a great time in Florida this past weekend!
Lots of time in the sun, sand and the occasional hurricane-like weather conditions.
Hold on for the recap!

On Thursday, our actual anniversary, I flew in to Fort Lauderdale, where Ryan had a driver pick me up and take me back to the hotel to meet him after his workday was over.
{He had been in Boca Raton all week on business.}
I walked into our hotel room, and Ryan had arranged for a dozen red roses to be delivered.
Of course he did.
He's that good. =)
 Later that day, I finally got to meet Ryan's new boss and was able to
put faces to names of coworkers of Ryan's from literally all over the world.
Total blast.
The next day, Ryan and I left Boca Raton and headed for our hotel in Fort Lauderdale.
Welcome to Fort Lauderdale Beach!
It was beautiful!
The view from our balcony:

We spent the whole day between the hotel pool and the beach.

We officially celebrated our anniversary on Friday night at our favorite spot,
YOLO, from the last time we visited Fort Lauderdale.
You Only Live Once
 Tuna sashimi with cucumbers and seaweed salad
Coriander-shallot crusted salmon with tabouleh
Yum
 Center-cut filet with wasabi potatoes and tabouleh
Dinner was delicious, and the company was awesome!
My sweet hubby and I...yep...he's pretty darn sweet.
A perfect night.
 The next day, we woke up to hurricane-like conditions,
but that didn't stop us!

We drove down to another hot spot on the beach for lunch and to watch some college football!
Lulu's Bait Shack
Oysters
One of our favorites!
What else do you eat during a college football game?
Wings of course!
We finished the day watching the Razorbacks sweep Auburn at a local sport's bar.
Another fantastic day, rain and all!

The reward came the next morning when we woke up to this weather:


Our flight didn't leaving until almost 7:00 PM, so we spent the day on the beach.
I heart this man. =)
While walking around, we came across this guy.
I'm willing to bet this isn't his first appearance on YouTube.

All good things must come to an end, and sadly we eventually had to drive back to the airport.
It really was such a great vacation!
I love that just the 2 of us can go away together and have the best time.
Can't wait to do it again.
Happy anniversary, Ryan!
I love you!

Until next time sun and sand!
