I'd Sure Look Darling In a Mega Yacht

Ohhhh hello blog. How ya dern?

I had quite the Thursday-Sunday but I've been sick as a dang dog the past few days. Climate changes kill me. Or maybe I'm just allergic to Florida? Either way, I'm a firm believer that a full dosage of NyQuil and a 7pm bedtime two nights in a row will solve any illness. I'm not back to 100% but I'm close enough to function without blood gushing out of my nose each time I sneeze. 

TMI?
Sorry, just trying to make you feel sorry for me paint an accurate picture for you.

I traveled to Florida for work this past weekend, but the night before I left I went and played tourist at reunion tower which is easily my favorite place downtown. It spins constantly (which honestly makes you a bit queasy) but you can see panoramic views of Dallas! I also got this sweet t-shirt. Dallas is apparently the capital of America... who knew?



The next morning I flew to Ft. Lauderdale for the Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show. What I love about my job is that we designate the first day of the trip as the, "Travel Day." No work needs to be done on travel day, and I'm a-ok with that. So I decided to get some blog designing done and eat a crap ton of the most delicious pizza ever from Anthony's




The next day we headed to work at the boat show. This show is also known as the mega-yacht show, as you can see below. Not sure what a pink convertible has to do with boats but it sure was cute!







And then the most amazing thing happened, I found out the GMC booth had NFL players signing autographs on both Saturday and Sunday. I got to meet the running back for the Miami Dolphins, Lamar Miller, and the wide receiver, Brian Hartline.





I almost got them to sign my Cowboys koozie... didn't feel like a dolphin fan beat down though.

Oh and I posted this on Instagram last night, here it is to download if you'd like it for your screensaver!

  15. I get terribly motion sick on boats but these pictures make me want one anyways. And maybe a cure for motion sickness while I'm dreaming big.

  16. I LIVE in Fort Lauderdale! Can't believe you were here breathing the same air as me, haha! So jealous of your autographs! I'm a huge Dolphin fan! I've met Brian Hartline before, but not Lamar Miller. So cool!! And yes...the boats are huge here!

  22. Hope you feel 100% soon! And I'm with you, I'm pretty sure I'd make a great accessory to a yacht. Or the pink convertible.

  23. 1. Never, ever question what a pink Lamborghini is doing! Just steal it and ship it on over to me in New Zealand ;)
    2. If you can't steal the Lamborghini then feel free to steal me a yacht because WOW.

  28. Your job sounds pretty freaking awesome! I wouldn't mind having that pink convertible.. ha ha! Awesome that you got to get signatures from NFL players!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Man, you have a great job! I wish I had perks like that! Looks like you lucked out with the NFL players too. I liked that one of them signed, "Nice dress." How cute is that?!

    ReplyDelete
  30. People own yachts like that? My god. That's awesome that you found the NFL players. You're a girl after my own heart.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Do you receive company discounts on those yachts? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. We really should have gotten a drink while you were here. Ft Lauderdale is awesome for somethings., yachts, spending money and drinking are a few of those. Way to go meeting the players, Hartline is a jerk though, you should have had him sign the Dallas coozie!

  33. What a fun work trip! Love the pink Lambo!!
