Our Weekend at the Beach

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We had a great time on our trip to Clearwater Beach.

We hit the road early Friday evening and made it to our hotel on Clearwater Beach around 9 p.m. We checked in and got settled in our room and minutes later, complimentary champagne and chocolate covered strawberries were delivered to our room. We spent the rest of the night checking out the hotel pool, chatting on our balcony and enjoying every minute of our alone time. I also drank every last drop of our bottle of champagne that night. Sorry I'm not sorry.

beach bound!
that's one happy guy
After sitting down to a complimentary breakfast on Saturday morning, we spent the rest of the morning and most of the afternoon by the pool. I wasn't expecting perfect weather and it started out pretty cloudy, but we loved every minute and it didn't even take long for the sun to come shining through. It was absolutely beautiful out. We enjoyed a few drinks, I read and relaxed, we even made friends and had a water gun fight with a group of kids.

not a bad view!

After the most glorious afternoon nap, we headed down the boardwalk for dinner. This is about the same time it started to storm, so we had a rainy and cold walk back to the hotel. With the stormy weather and whatnot, all we really wanted to do was cuddle in bed and relax. So that is exactly how we spent the rest of the night.

After spending the morning relaxing by the pool on Sunday, we headed back to Orlando fairly early to beat the bad weather and have time to unpack and relax before starting the week. Plus, Jonathan's niece was born on Thursday, so we wanted to stop by and visit her when we got home.

We spent the evening cuddling, drinking a few beers and getting through season 3 of How I Met Your Mother. I couldn't ask for a more perfect way to end such a romantic, fun and relaxing weekend away.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
