Some things that make me happy.....

I love my new shoes! So much that I clean and organized my closet, which is now another thing that I love. I have all my shoes organized, my clothes hung, winter sweaters stored away and purses in a tote. Then I did all my laundry and put it away. ( When you have as much clothing as me, this is a feat. Then I found this quote: "It's really hard to walk in a single woman's shoes -- that's why you sometimes need really special shoes!" I may not be single, but I like to think I'm fabulous which is why I wanted these shoes. But currently, well according to last night's episode of Sex and the City on E!, Carrie Bradshaw is. My new tv addiction is Sex and the City ever since it started playing on E! and Style, and also since my friend Sonia invited me to the opening night of Sex and the City 2 last summer. By the way, the new episode of Glee is on next Tuesday, April 19.

Out with the old, in with the new

This year is starting with a lot of new...... New fresh and so clean, clean.

New rides to make some new, exciting memories.

Fun new style sense....just joking. Starting a new, healthier me.

New purse....and developing another shopping addiction.

And developing a new, sunny, happy outlook on life.

P.S. I will also have to get a new bumper and trunk lid for my car. No pictures yet; the thought of Shane backing into the car is too fresh in my mind.

When was the last time you had a cheeseburger in paradise?

March 1st was the last time I did. And I actually had one in Margaritaville, without the cheese.
True! There are no snowmobiles allowed in Key West. (Found this in the garden of a man who also has a house in Sundance.) Well, they might be allowed, but there's no point in having one. That's the beautiful part of being there in February....NO SNOW!!! Before you start thinking this was a great vacation, it was a business trip.

Now its not uncommon for me to sleep in while Shane is at work, but this was especially sweet. It was Saturday, he was stuck in a meeting and I went on an early morning walk that ended with me falling asleep in a hammock on the resort's private beach. This is how vacations should be!

Not only was it a new experience for us to be on vacation in paradise, but we also got to try snorkeling. I loved it, Shane...not so much. But at least the drinks and the boat ride made it worthwhile. Have you noticed the pattern in my pictures so far? Sunshine equals happy Ashley! If you ever needed a reason to laugh, this would be it. Our little scooter topped out at 35 mph but at least it got us to the most Southern point of the US. (It was also a 10 minute walk from our hotel.) The island was so small, I'm pretty sure that I walked the same amount the whole trip as one day in Disneyland. Casa Marina Resort.....thank you for you beautiful trees, sand, hammocks and for selling PopTarts and chai in your gift shop. I will be back....but this time I will have to pay for my own room. Can I get a previous guest discount?
