Tampa

Is this real life?

It’s time for Penn State’s spring break! My mom and I are going to Tampa for a few days. I feel so blessed! The weather is going to be okay (60s), but it’s better than Pittsburgh’s current weather (20s). I’m so excited to explore the area and spend time with my mom.

I just have to get through the flight. I would really, really appreciate prayers…

Flying is my biggest fear. 

It’s important to step outside of my comfort zone though! I’ll be knocking two resolutions off of my list for 2013 (travel more and do scary things).

What is your biggest fear?

P.S. Do you like the new header?!

I am alive!

HELLO! Here I am 🙂

Though my vacation isn’t over (until tonight at 7:45PM) I figured I can blog about it now since I have some time this morning. Here is how the days went:

Sunday: Flew from Pgh to Atlanta to Tampa. My Second cousin picked Jimmy and I up and we had dinner at home with family then jumped in the hot tub!
I lived through the flight because I knew God was in charge 🙂 Thanks for everyone’s advice!!

Monday: Jim and I ran in a nearby park and hit up the beach area then went in the hot tub again at night :o)

Tuesday: On Tuesday Jim, my 2nd cousin, and I all went to Tarpon Springs, Florida to the Sponge Docks! SO COOL. I learned all about sponges and loofah’s. We ate at a Greek restaurant right on the water too! I got to pet a python at the local aquarium!!! At night Jim and I swam and hot tubbed again.

Wednesday: Jim and I went to the beach again because it was about 83 degrees out! We got coffee (YUM and MUCH needed) and hung out. At night we went to the Florida Strawberry Festival which was so fun and interesting! Parking was $8 but we got a free pint of strawberries-YUUUUM. We ate strawberry shortcake and it was delish! For dinner we hit up cracker barrel 🙂

^ SPICY catfish!

Today: We should be heading to the Lowry Zoo in Tampa (weather permitting, I think!) Then we will be back to the airport for our flight home which should arrive at 7:45PM

I have SO many pictures but no one likes an overload so more later 😉
