I think my Mom and I could have gotten home faster from London than Key West!  If you followed me on Instagram over my vacation (my bizzy kitchen – thank you if you did!) you’ll know that my Mom and I left to go to the airport on Key West at 10:00 a.m. on Monday and I finally drove into my driveway at 5:00 p.m. last night.  We were flying United, but with the connection, you have to fly Silver Airlines.  DO NOT FLY SILVER AIRLINES!  We had delays both going there and coming home, and it’s bullshit that weather was an issue because the whole state of Florida was sunny and USAir, American and Delta flights were leaving all around us.

Such a terrible way to end a vacation, but there are worse world problems, right?!

While I mostly took a blog/internet break, I did remind people on Facebook to vote for my Cheezy Italian Beef Pizza for the Sebastiani Pizza My Way Contest.  Voting ended on March 2 – the pizza with the most votes automatically wins $1500!   Pretty sure I’ll get the call today about that – ha!  Today is the pizza tasting at their winery.  They have a local chef making all eight pizzas, and it’s a combination of online votes, the tasting and the judges panel – check out the judges here!

This is going to be a short post – still tired from the two day trip getting home and I have to go to work today.  My goal for my vacation was to maintain my weight, and I am considering this a success!



To only gain .6 pounds when I ate dessert several times while on vacation – and I am normally not a dessert person at all!  But we did a lot of bike riding, walking and swimming, so that helped.  Um, I may have taken 943 pictures last week!  I need to figure out how to download them to my computer – I finally was able to upgrade my phone and now have the iPhone 6+ – it has an amazing camera!


I can now take panoramic pictures – this is where my Mom and I watched the sunset on Saturday night – absolutely gorgeous!


And I had a great time hanging out with my Aunt and Cousin – lots more pictures to come in the next few days!  And I really enjoyed spending so much time with my Mom – I really wish you would just leave a comment on this post and just make it official that I am your favorite child!  I love you!


Well, I am off to shower, pack my gym bag and get back to the swing of things – I’ll catch up with all of you guys in the next few days to see what you’ve been up to since I’ve been gone. 

Make it a great day!
