EXCITING NEWS!!!!

Photo Via. 
If you follow me on twitter than you already read that I was planning on sharing some exciting news here on the blog today. And to those of you who guessed anxiously... no, I'm not pregnant. Sorry to disappoint. But I have something else exciting to share. The mister and I are packing up and moving our little buns to sunny Florida! Fort Lauderdale to be more precise, for six whole months! This will definitely be a big change for us Seattleites, but an exciting one. I guess this just goes to show, "ask and you shall receive". And before going on I just wanted to give a congratulations to my main squeeze, for all of his hard work and dedication he puts into his job that he gets offered these amazing opportunities and that I get to go along for the ride. He's just that good that they even offered him a position in the Netherlands but we felt that Florida was the right move for us. I know, I know, what were we thinking! But in all honesty our wallets will be thanking us in the long run. Besides we already plan on taking a few vacations down to the caribbean during our stay (in particular for our 2 year anniversary, woot woot!)
Everything is happening so fast. In just the past two days we have already cancelled our renewal for our apartment, set up cancellations for our water, Internet, TV, the works. In just 50 days we can call ourselves Flordians (is that what it's called???)
So to all my Florida readers, what are some things we can't miss out on! I've never been, but all Eric keeps talking about is how much he wants to take me to Gatorland... joy, ha.

  28. Congrats! That is really an awesome opportunity and to be in Florida especially! :) My BF lives there and I go to visit him pretty often. You just have to be careful of the highways.


    *They are always changing the exits and things as they reconstruct the highway system. One day a road you take routinely will be demolished the next :(

  45. yay!! I live just outside of Ft Lauderdale as well. It will be a big change [I moved here with my husband late last year] & to be honest, it was a bit of a transition. One of the hardest things for us was finding a good COFFEE SHOP!! there are none. well two.
    Brew Urban Cafe in Flagler Village, Ft Laudy & Panther Coffee in Miami :) My hubs & I try and adventure out & around the city as much as possible, I hope you like it down here for the couple months you're here :)

  64. Hey that's where I'm from! Born and raised, so I may be a little biased, but the sunshine state is such an amazing little place to live. :) I'm in the Orlando area. Though I will say, the heat and humidity is not for the faint of heart. There are so many beautiful places to check out here. If you'd like any advice or suggestions or even a friend, I'm happy to help! :)

  65. Oh my goodness, from one corner of the country to the other... how exciting! You've got to get down to Atlantis while you're there if you can, we went for our honeymoon and it was amazing!

  73. So excited for you two and your new adventure!! My cousin lived in Florida for a while when her husband did sales and she loved it. Very different from Seattle! Sad you are moving away from Washington right before I move up there (I was hoping we could meet up sometime!!), but I know you are headed where you are supposed to go! Good luck with getting everything ready!!
