Ready for my Own Bed

Have you ever been longing for your own bed to sleep in? That is how I feel after a week of traveling. I am so excited to be back home but it's only for a few days. I head back out Monday morning for Orlando.

I sm so excited that I am going to the land of Mickey and Minnie!!! I have never been to Disney and I have heard my entire life how amazing it is. The main thing I want to see is the huge castle, Princess, whatever you want to call it. Yes, I am going to Orlando for work but we get one day of play and that is where I am choosing to go!

Now for what you really want to see.....the pictures from my trip in Gainesville! I'm still not happy that they would not upload while I was traveling.

First off I am a huge BAMA fan so I'm used to Crimson and White. I was heading to Gainesville on the day of the National Championship. I did wear crimson loud and proud.  However, I arrived and I was not in BAMA anymore. This is what greeted me when I got off the plane.

And he was not just at the airport...he was everywhere

One of my favorite things about Gainesville was the Mossy Trees....Ahhhh Beautiful. You may not be able to see it well but it is very simular to what you would see in Savannah, GA.

Food was a plenty in Gainesville. When I travel one of the things I like to do is visit local places that you cant find anywhere else. Here are just a few that we went to...

I had naked wings at Gainesville Ale House.

I am dieting which is not easy while traveling. However, I had tilapia at Ballyhoo and it was wonderful. Plus it was within the diet regulations!

We had the suggestion to go to Satchel's. It was the biggest hippy hole in the wall place you have ever seen. It was one of the best places I have ever been! I even bought some of their "secret" vinaigrette dressing to bring home. DELISH

And finally, I mentioned that BAMA was playing in a National Championship on Monday night. I was not going to let being at The University of Florida stop me from showing my pride!! I watched the game from the comfort of my hotel bed. I am soooooooo happy that we brought home #15. I could not be more proud!!! ROLL TIDE

Can't wait to try out some new places in Orlando! Tomorrow is my weigh in....please wish me luck after this week of traveling. Now I will get in the bed that I have been dying for. Goodnight
