after v-day,

Post V-day Celerabtion 2013 and dates

For this V-day I decided to make some yummy chocolate strawberries and fortune cookies. Especially for the bby girl Rhea. I made more than enough to share though!

Got a little note while working and some kissie lips :P

So I had a little surprise for Rhea. It wasn't the most organized event but it went pretty well seeing that I worked all night and only had an hour to get everything set. I always wanted a guy to surprise me with balloons so I took it in my own hands and did it for Rhea. I let her open my trunk and let the balloons fly away leaving her a special gift behind. I got her a teddy and flowers :D

We had a pretty chill V-day celebration. Late lunch, explored a new area, hunted down some after v-day sales, watched Warm Bodies, visited some friends, grabbed some sushi and ate in bed while watching Walking Dead on Netflix.

Fish dip, Jambalaya, Shrimp n Cheese grits, crawfish

Coffee and Jelly Shots at Witches Brewery. Alcohol and Coffee? Hmm!!

Party in the backseat!

I would have to say I had a pretty romantic after v-day celebration.. if only Rhea was a man!! Haha it's okay though because I still had a good time :)

I always have plenty of dates with Rhea and it keeps on getting better :P Even when I look like this on my off days.


Extremely long date night that ended with a comedy show with Steve Byrne. He's a cutie on stage with his clean suit. I liked his show but it would have been better without all the overdose sexual jokes. He's a sweetie though!

Self Cam!



Florida State Fair/Renaissance Festival 2013

I'm an addict to turkey legs! Everywhere I go I must get myself a turkey leg. I spoil myself even when I can't even finish one. Ohh dear. 

I didn't go to the State Fair this year for rides or shows but to eat. We had a foodie adventure at the fair and we basically tried all the fried goodies. NEVER again will I do that because I felt so sick and gross. I tried most of the fried candies, including bubble gum and butter. I somewhat wanted to try the krispy kream burger but didn't have the chance. It may have been for the best.

We found a candy maze though!!

 Discussing with a friend on our mission into this maze of sweetness.
Baskets in hand!

I enjoyed the fried Reese's the best.

So the next event is the Renaissance Festival. It's still going on but I went to the first one and had a pretty kickin' time. My friend lent me some clothes so Rhea and I got to dress up!!

Pretty legit! We all look good :D

I love my outfit :D

Like always, gotta get my turkey leg!

We watched a few shows and also walked around for awhile. It's like a whole another place once you pass the gates. Many played their character well and there's just so much to do. I also got to try archery which was pretty cool even thought I suck. I did get a hang of it.

Should have worn better shoes because my feet were gross but oh well. I had a fun time here!!



First Friday in St. Pete - Feb. 2013

My second time at First Friday in St. Petersburg beats the first! May be because there were more people and I actually drank this time. The night started out so clear and then became blurry but it was a fun night. Not too crazy but we had fun with each other :).

Catch me walking :)

We took some pictures with this uhhh car thing. No clue why or even how we were the only one able to get behind the ropes to get next to the car. All I know is that when we were posing everyone started to take their camera out and take pictures. AWKWARD.

We started out Sink or Swim adventure 

And somehow we ended up with photo strips of all us cramming into a photo booth. It apparently sounded like a good/smart idea to get 5-6 people into a booth!

Fun night :D We ended it with some Taco Bus and a little chat at Danny's place.



Sarasota Weekend - January 2013

10:28 PM Dena 0 Comments

Another post that I should have posted up but never did! Some time in January I had an event in Sarasota so we gathered a few friends and took a road trip down south. It's not that far from our homes but since we wanted to venture out we decided to stay a night and just have an relaxing weekend. 

We played at the Ringling Museum of Art for most part of the day until we split up to our other plans. I def have to say this place is pretty cool for pictures and there's just so much to do and look at.

This is me most of the time!! Taking pictures :D

It seems to be an ladies day out!!

Oh that's me :D

We spent most of our time walking around admiring everything at the Ringling and taking tons of photos.

During the evening we attended an YELP event. I had a good time but there was an incident that ruined my night there. I had a little rant on my food blog so I won't bring it up here. I loved the mermaids and merman's walking around.

We ended the night pretty early or at least I did. We brought some food back to the hotel and then all the ladies chatted away.

BED HAIR!! Going to check out the breakfast here.

Making waffles for Rhea while we scope out what to do for the day here in Sarasota.

We ended up driving around for a bit, started off with some coffee at Coffee Loft which is super cute!! Walked around at St. Armand Square for a bit, the beach and then ate at Munchies 4:20.

I'm not a huge fan of Munchies 4:20 but it is a cool little place to hit up. It was featured on Man V. Food but we def did not do the challenge. Grabbed a few things to eat from there and I will have to say we ended up taking home 80% of the food. Massive amount of food and will hit any junkie craving.

Dunedin Art Walk - January 2013

10:05 PM Dena 0 Comments

I once again fail at keeping this blog alive! I'll have to catch up once again. Here's to a post with my new baby boy Benji. My friends wanted to go to Dunedin for an Art Walk so I decided to take Benji out for his first test run with people. He did pretty well that day. I was mobbed by everyone wanting to touch him but he didn't have too much of a problem with them.

sitting alone for .01 seconds
People just come mobbing me and Benji the whole day

 I guess who wouldn't with that cute face of his!!

He's grown so much since then! Much bigger than I expected but he's still a cutie pie. I'm hoping he stops because he's almost 14 pounds already and that's more than double than my older dog. 


When I first got him he didn't know how to pose for the camera but after a few practices I think he's got it down!

I can't help but love that face of his!

I got him a nice jacket :D
oh and a shirt :D

Baby's first visit from the Groomers!

He recently got neutered so he's not in the best shape but he's still cheerful and floppy as ever. He's healing up nicely and is off his pain relievers. And a big appetite like before!
