Photo Update Part 2 - Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!!!

I hope everyone had a happy and safe New Year and is recovering happily surrounded by loved ones.

We're still in Florida but getting ready to head back to the arctic tundra in the morning. It's been a a good trip, but busy and I am ready to get back to the normalcy of everyday life.

Here is the photo-tour of the second half of our trip. I have to warn you people that are freezing your butts off up north, there are quite a few beach shots in here. Don't shoot the messenger...

Just remember, I'll be up there soon enough in my scarf and gloves dealing with the snow and ice just like the rest of you.

But for now, we are wearing shorts :)

These pictures were taken while wandering around after our 9 mile run the other morning.

exactly why are you in Philly, when you could live the Buffett life?

Bert said...

Great pics Laurel, it's like checking out a really nice Florida vacation brochure... As for going back to Philly, well at least the Eagles are in the playoffs and the Phillies are still baseball champions of the world!

Looks like a magical trip :) I always think it is so funny to have chrismas decorations in warm climates...the sun beaming through the toy soldier makes me laugh :)

I like the enormous kissing couple :)

Have a safe trip back to the tundra!

I don't think I could even find my shorts if I wanted to. You win. :o)

Wooooooooohooooooo!!! Marathon announcement ???? I cannot wait to hear it! How soon? How soon? Make it quick. I cannot hold any much longer.

I think you are going to regret coming up to Philadelphia, Alaska.

The pictures are to die for! Sandy beach, drinks, sunshine! Why am I in Noo Joisey??

Thanks for sharing.

"This is not snow" - GAH!

I'm getting colder just looking at the beautiful warmth where you are.

Safe travels back, Laurel.

Dunn, is about 45 minutes from where I live in Raleigh. If you guys ever need a place to crash on your trips or a run stop, let me know.

Cassandra said...

Nice photos, Brags Sunshine McDoodle!

Good luck w/ '09! I hear you on the eating better and the finance stuff. And your marathon is 2 weeks before mine, so I'm going to be looking to you for motivation!!
