    You are just glowing with happiness in the single picture you posted of yourself. So happy you decided to get out & relax with your man-friend <3 <3

  2. Looks like a nice relaxing vacation!! I so want to go on one too and especially have some nice sunny weather too πŸ™‚

    Great bathing suit by the way!

  3. I’ve always said that I’m a forests/rivers/mountains/lakes kind of girl, and that’s pretty much because open water scares the bejeezus out of me. Sharks and sting rays and jellyfish?! Eeee. That’s why I usually err on the side of caution and stick to the beach πŸ˜‰ Speaking of which, you’re making me seriously miss my last trip to one! Last vacation I took was to Vegas about a month ago, but before that it was Hawaii in the beginning of March, and I seriously can’t wait to go back. I may have to go back soon… you know… to escape the nasty winter we get up here πŸ˜‰

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Ugh, winter! Don’t remind me! The other day as I was driving in to work, I realized that it was almost completely dark outside…what?!? No, not already!! I love fall just as much as the next person, but omg, I HATE daylight saving’s time! Must have sunshine!!

      Ahhh, Hawaii! I’ve never been, but would LOVE to visit someday…and drink from a coconut…and learn to surf…and climb a volcano! πŸ˜‰

  4. Lucie says:

    Oh my goodness, that VIEW!!!! So beautiful!! I am totally jealous, but I guess you already know that. I love the pic of you too, freaking cute!!
    I’ve been to New York and Boston for my last vacation and it’s only 4 weeks until I will fly to Spain again. I can not wait!
    Enjoy Florida!!

  5. Oh wow!! The view from your condo is incredible! It looks beautiful! I definitely don’t think I’d be getting in the water after seeing a hammerhead shark..I’ll stay safely on the sand with the friendlier seagulls thank you haha!
    I went to L.A. for my last holiday; was so good! A month today I go to Rome though so I’m incredibly excited about that.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh wow….ROME?! That’s awesome! I’ve actually never travelled abroad before BUT I did just get an application to get a passport so hopefully I can work something out in the neeeeeeeear future! I’ve always wanted to visit different parts of Europe!

  6. Looks pretty marvelous to me. Gosh, just looking at the waves pictures is relaxing!

  7. Looks like such a great relaxing weekend….y’know aside from the shark! πŸ˜‰

  8. purelytwins says:

    many years ago on a family trip we were in the water snorkeling down in FL keys, and yes we came across some sharks, it was so scary. it has been very hard to get in the water after that πŸ˜‰

  9. I’m normally a sit-on-the-beach person anyways, but seeing a shark in the water would probably just confirm that on shore is a good place to be. I do find hammerhead sharks really cool though, but I’ll stick to seeing them in aquariums πŸ˜‰ Glad that you’re enjoying your vacation so far! My last real vacation was Mexico in May 2012, so I think I’m about due for another one soon!

  10. Ohhh, full body man-friend pic. Even if it is pixelated, I can totally tell he’s worthy of your sexiness. And speaking of your sexiness… I love that bikini you hottie. And I just about spit out my coffee (that I’m not actually drinking, but I liked the expression) when I saw that picture of the shark. Is that for real?!?!?!?! I would be traumatized for life.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      It IS for real! Pretty messed up, isn’t it? I had NO IDEA sharks came that close to shore! Let’s just say I was on HIGH ALERT the rest of the vacation while I was in the water! And seriously? You are too sweet! Thanks for making a gal feel good! πŸ˜‰

  11. Love seeing that smile on your face! The last vacation I went on was NY Christmas two years ago. I need a vacation! Um, no to the shark question. I’m good with staying in the sand…

    Enjoy the rest of your vacation! xoxo

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh honey, you DO need a vacation! Two years is WAY too long…especially for someone like you who is always on the go! Yes, I think you need a quiet little spot on the beach (farrrrr away from the sharks) to curl up with a book and pay no attention to what time a day it is! Just let me know when you get this planned and I’ll be there with another smile on my face…you know, just for your entertainment! It’s what I do! πŸ˜‰ xoxo

  12. Looks like such a great time! (Minus the shark) Great idea spreading the blog on the beach! lol. I’m going to do that every where I go now. HMMM Now I just need to go somewhere!

  13. Im jealous, so jealous. I need another vaca soon!! I dont get one until Nov. but I wont be going anywhere, Ill have a staycation, which sometimes is just as good!

  14. Elly says:

    My last vacation was to Puerto Vallarta, MX and it was fab! We did everything from horseback riding on the beach, 6hr zip lining and rappelling adventure, snorkeling, kayaking and lots more. Can’t wait to go back! And today we are going to State College, PA to visit family for a week. October – Chicago. As far as the shark goes, I will probably go in but I will definitely be paranoid the whole time.
    Enjoy your trip!

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Oh WOW! That sounds like the perfect vacation! Ziplining is definitely one of my TOP bucket list items…and so is snorkeling! Ohh, I hope you have a good time in Chicago! I’ve been once, but it was when I was in high school and I don’t think I really experienced it all…can’t wait to go back! And just FYI, I was just told about a place called Scout’s that’s in Chicago that supposedly has some mind-blowing pulled pork nachos…if you’re into that sort of thing! πŸ˜‰

  15. Those views are absolutely gorgeous!!!

  16. OMG I can’t believe people were swimming so close to the shark, that is so scary! o.O
    THis looks like a gorgeous vacay! Glad you got to enjoy it with your man πŸ™‚


  17. Looks like you are having a wonderful time! I’m so jealous you are at the beach! I could use a beach vacation right about now! πŸ™‚

    Also, I’m with you, if I saw a shark, I would definitely not get back in the water for a long time!

  18. Uhh maybe it’s because I live like a billion miles from the nearest ocean, but I had no idea sharks came THAT close to the shore. I think you just scared me out of ever swimming in the ocean again! πŸ˜›

    It looks like you’re having an awesome vacation though. I’m so glad you’re enjoying yourself – you deserve it!!

  19. Lisa says:

    wow, the view from your condo is incredible! πŸ™‚ woohoo for the full body man-friend pic … we’ve all been waiting for it after we saw that sexy thumb! πŸ™‚

  20. girlllll… I wouldn’t go near that water now… no way! Can I come crash your beach time?? πŸ˜‰

  21. Julie says:

    Looks like you had a great time! I’ve never seen a shark in the water, but I actually go to the beach and never get in.

  22. Shark! So scary! I once snorkeled over a shark but it was just a small nurse shark. So not dangerous. But if I saw a hammerhead shark… I might be more hesitant to get back in the water. They just look scary! Glad you’re enjoying your vacation!

  23. What a gorgeous view you had! Jealousss

    I cannot believe those people were swimming close to a shark. Sharks terrify me. Anytime I get in the ocean all I can think about is getting attacked lol

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Omg, hahaha! Honestly, until we saw this shark, I never really thought about them. I never realized they would come so close to the shore! My main worry is the damn jellyfish! I’m always on the lookout for those little buggers!

  24. Shark? Maybe. Jellyfish? HECK NO. That’s where I would draw the line. Have you ever seen that Friends episode? It’s actually entitled “The One With the Jellyfish.” Double NO. πŸ˜›

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Hahahaha! It’s funny you mention the jellyfish, because there actually were a few swimming around on a couple of days. Once I pointed one out to the man-friend, he spent the rest of the vacation at the pool! Lol Me? I laugh in the face of danger…muahahaha! And I just pay attention to where I’m swimming! πŸ˜‰

  25. Mam, the Man Friend’s pixels look good.
    Glad you are enjoying your vacation. Just stay away from the sharks; I hear they bite.

  26. It looks like you’ve been having the most amazing time! My last vacation was to Louisiana – and my next one will be Bali!!

    There’s no way I could get in the water after knowing a shark had been there – truth be known I may be one of the few Aussies who doesn’t like the beach as I’m scared of fish haha – we have these teeny tiny little fish you can’t really see – and once a friend pointed them out to me and I’ve never enjoyed swimming in the ocean since! Haha

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Awww, way to ruin it, friend! Ignorance really is bliss, is it not? πŸ˜‰

      And yeah, I’m pretty sure your trip to Bali is gonna blow Louisiana right out of the crystal blue water! So jealous!
