Bye Bye Miami

We are heading back home tomorrow.  🙁  So sad to leave this beautiful place but anxious to get packing and get the move on!  We have so much to do that it almost makes me sick just thinking about it, but it will all be over and done in a month and a half.  It will fly by!  Today on our way back from the beach we heard the Alicia Keys “New York” song just as we pulled up behind a car that had a N.Y. license plate.  It was such an exciting feeling!  Mya was singing with me  from the back, “New Work!!!”  Precious!


Well, we are officially moving to Manhattan!  An offer was made that we accepted on Friday.  What a crazy, whirlwind it was selling the house.  It has just gone so fast.  We’re closing in mid April and have to be out of our house by May 15th.  Wow!  So we have tons of furniture to sell along with our cars.  If anyone needs any type of furniture, let me know.  We have it!

We have made a little pit stop in Miami before the madness of moving begins.  It’s a much needed vacation for all of us!  Here are just a few pictures that I’ve taken.  We will be making it to the beach later today after nap time and I can’t wait.  I can already smell the ocean and I LOVE it.  It makes me so giddy and happy to smell that again.  I feel like it’s saying, “Welcome back home!”  I went to high school and college in Florida and have missed it here ever since I left!  Glad to know that there are cheap, direct flights to Florida from N.Y.!

We rented a house with our family.  It’s such the perfect place for kids.  It already has high chairs, cribs, strollers, a swing set, toys, you name it!  This light just made my heart sing so I had to go and grab the camera after our swim!  Of course Mya wasn’t quite as happy as me about it.  😉

This was at the car rental place.  lol  Mya loved the hibiscus flowers!  We also saw something a little bizarre in the parking lot.  Can you guess what it was?  See below!

That’s right!  Monkeys!  And lots of them.  It was very strange.  We found out that there used to be a zoo right there but after Hurricane Andrew, it got wiped out and now there are just monkeys running wild around there.

Ahhhh, Florida, thanks for taking the stress away, at least for now!

Oh Man!!!!

Well, an offer was made on our house. The people want to close on April 30th and don’t want to rent the house back to us. Holy BLEEEEEP! The offer is a bit lower than what we want but these people really want the house so we’re going to try and meet them in the middle. I’m scared but excited and nervous and anxious all at the same time. How in the world will we sell everything in time? We want to stay with Ryder’s parents for a few days or so if the house does close then so that we can stay here for Mya’s 2nd birthday party. We don’t want her to have a party with none of her friends. She loves them. It makes me pretty sad to know that she won’t be seeing them after we move. 🙁 Everyone pray for us and cross your fingers that things work out however they are supposed to.

Okay, back to business.  I took some pictures tonight of these cuties.  They were the easiest 2 children I’ve ever photographed, even the almost 2 year old!  He looked at the camera and smiled!  WHAT?!  Wow!  Oh, I wish Mya would do that.  It was so nice meeting you guys tonight!  Mom, I’ll let you know when your pictures are all ready, hopefully by tomorrow!  🙂

More Lovin’ For Ya

Okay, so I have been holding out on working on these pictures so that I could finish the playgroup ones and now I am ready to start on these and I am so excited to share more with you!  I have a feeling these two are going to get more pictures than they bargained for because I love them all!!  I will keep uploading more as I work on them throughout the evening.

Uh, yeah, she did this on her own….hot momma!

Okay, okay, not the most romantic background here, but so Austin-y!

Amazing light to go with some beautiful eyes!
