i celebrated the week between christmas and new years in my home away from home... west palm beach, florida. it was wonderful, relaxing, beautiful, a bit chilly, and perfect. we ate dinners at the best restaurants, got spa treatments at the breakers (where we saw susan lucci, may i add), read books, lounged by the pool, took walks on the beach, drank, a lot, watched basketball, took daily afternoon naps, slept in, played cards, drove around to see beautiful, ginormous houses, and spent time a lot of quality family time together.
in the heart of palm beach... seeing all these beautiful multi million dollar houses makes me feel right at home... ;)
you can see the place where we spent our new years right behind those palm trees... a great italian place called cucina.
this is what happens when i ask john to get some pictures while i drove... helicopters and roof tops and oncoming traffic... at least the sky was beautiful and i never get tired of the blue and green!
it's still real purdy.
and this is my attempt to be artsy (artistic or autistic?) .... am i talented with my new canon rebel or what??
paradise at it's finest...
OH WAIT! or is this paradise? yup, that's my mom. she's a touch looney! she decided to play some dress up hahahahaha
dear mom, please don't be mad at me. :)
now to balance out the weirdness a little bit, here's a normal picture of my step dad. ain't he cute?
oh, and my brother. he's a real peach in front of the camera....
aww, yes. we continue with the week. we decided to spend a day at the spa at the breakers. please peep our pedicures in this picture. and susan lucci and i are besties now. read it and weep.
landscape pictures. please, just let me have my moment with my new photographs.
pregnant jessie at the beach. isn't she a beautiful pregnant lady? i'm so excited for my little nephew.
