Summer Travels| Weekend Trip to Tally-Ho

in peek into my world

Last weekend I took a trip down to Tallahassee FL to visit the BFF who is finishing up her PhD (Dr. in the fam!).  If you know anything about college towns, there typically isn’t much going on when when school is in session, and I’m sure you can imagine the festivities during the Summer sessions (did ya sense the sarcasm?).  Either way, we made it work and enjoyed each others company. Btw, the twist out you see above (in the animation) was courtesy of a product primarily marketed for skin! More on that in a future post 😀

What’s a post like this with out food pics? LOL.  This was literally the first spot we hit up after my flight.

If you are ever in Tallahassee, FL you MUST take a trip to Azu-LucyHo. Excellent gourmet Asian food for take-out prices. The first pic is the Seafood Fried Rice and the second pic is my favorite, Crispy Honey Pineapple Shrimp (topped with strawberries). YUM-O!

Stopped at a nearby fruit stand for cantaloupe and watermelon, which I ate for what seemed like breakfast lunch and dinner, yet there was still a whole half of melon left when I flew back to Atlanta.

Visited her office on campus and then did a little shopping.

Stopped by The Cake Shop. This was Caramel Cream. So good! This was actually the flavor of her wedding cake one year ago.

She insisted on making me a Very Berry smoothie. Did I mention she is a nail blogger? Check her out at Refined & Polished.

Then I did her hair and it took forever! Her hair is super thick!  I’ll reveal the style in a future post.

When I got back to Atlanta, the business cards I ordered from Moo were in my mailbox a week earlier than expected. Some years ago I received the free Moo cards but these cards are by far SUPERIOR and are just under $30. The back side of each card has a different picture while the front contains static contact information. They also sent a discount code for others to use on their first pack G2MSCG. You’re welcome 🙂

I have a couple more trips up my sleeve for this Summer, one of which includes Virgin Gorda  in the British Virgin Islands.

What are your Summer travel plans?

The Hubby & I are going to Disney World in 2 weeks and then we are still investigating places to go for our international vacation.
