Check another state off my list!

Well, it looks like I get to check another state off my list of “states I have been too“!  I’m pretty excited about this!  It’s been awhile since we have been to another state, and it’s even more exciting to be able to check another state off my list!

We’re going to Florida!  Miami to be exact.

Florida

Part business, part pleasure, but always fun when I get to be with my best friend!

The flight and car reservations have been made, now for the fun part, finding a nice hotel.

So, I thought to myself, hmmmm…I wonder, would any of my blogging friends be willing to recommend a nice hotel to stay in while in the Miami area?

I’ll be doing my research online, but I’m open to some wonderful suggestions!

Oh, and if you have any tips on things to see or do while I’m there, I would be interested in hearing about that too!  We are only going to be there for a few days, but I’m curious to hear what the “must-do” thing would be while visiting Florida!

And the nominations are…

My blogging friend, Margaret Langridge has nominated me for this awesome award.

It has taken me much to long to respond to it though, and she has probably forgotten by now that she even did this for me!

So, do me a favor and check out her blog, it’s amazing! I know you will enjoy it as much as I have, it’s called: Along Life’s Road

The award she has so graciously bestowed upon me is:

The Versatile Blogger Award

Don’t know what it is?

I didn’t either, but I checked it out, and now I know.  You can check it out to, just click on this link.
