A Bug's Life

Hey hey hey, guess who it is!? If you guessed all 783 of Sarah's bug bites are taking over VTIM today to re-cap our Florida trip, that's right, you guessed correctly! By our Florida trip, we of course mean the Florida trip Sarah so kindly let us tag along for. Heck, we are now even getting a free trip to Dallas! Sarah is so nice to host us for such an extended stay, I hope we haven't worn out our welcome. She keeps scratching our backs though, so we all assume she is just as happy to have us as we are to have her! What a doll.

We started bugging Sarah (hah, mosquito humor) at 5am Monday morning. She wasn't wearing bug spray, so we took that as an open invitation to bring the whole family along. We first met Sarah when she sat with her feet dangling off our home, boat slip 21. For us, it was love at first bite. 

After the whole family (yeah, extended cousins and everything! Even Jimmy-Jo Bob came!) ate a heaping back-of-leg breakfast that morning before the sun even had the chance to make a peep, Sarah took us on our first adventure, and first stunning sunrise, of the week at a big beach party! 








Then that afternoon, we went fishing with the locals (by locals we mean the dolphin below. Dude was a little standoffish, rude) down at party cove! 




Then shared a delicious martini with our gracious host, Sarah! 






On day two of the photo shoot, we experienced THE. BEST. SUNRISE. EVER. Sarah told us about this post she wrote for you guys, where she wouldn't shut up about the water. Well, this time, she wouldn't shut up about the sunrises and sunsets. She was all, "Ok, but can we talk about that sunrise though...







 
Then she was all like, "Ok, but can we talk about that sunset though?" So annoying. We know, Sarah, we all have eyes too......











 
But don't worry, she wouldn't shut up about that water though either....

 
We even got to see some time on the camera! Here is a picture where you can't see us with the naked eye, so we took the liberty of pointing us out to you...




 Oh... and hey! Look, see! There we are! Sarah's gonna kill usssss for posting this #sorrynotsorry #welookgood!





What a sucker! (Sorry, more bad mosquito humor....)

We also walked on the beach, found someone else from Texas and did all this other fun stuff too! 



 
And then... guess who we got to meet last night?!? Vee and Gee! Yay, it was so fun, we loved them too and can't wait to go home tonight after Sarah is done working to spend more time with them. 





 
Lots and lots and lots more time with them. We never plan on leaving Sarah. Ever. Oh and, don't be mad at Sarah, but we hear she has a two day work week before she heads off to another beach in North Carolina to see her bestie for the weekend! JK, go ahead and be mad. What a bitch.

  6. Lol! Your poor leg (and everywhere else, I guess). Gorgeous pictures. I particularly love the one of the water. What gorgeous patterns of light!

  7. Okay, I LIVE where you were at and I've NEVER in my life had that many bug bites before. Did you have perfume or scented lotion on?! They love the sweet smell. You should probably just go ahead and move to Florida, and then they'll get used to you and leave you alone and then we can hang, haha.

  14. Wow you got EATEN up! When I moved to GA, my bites would swell up like crazy. Apparently the more you get bitten, the less of an allergic reaction you have, and eventually you don't even know you're bitten anymore. So maybe those mosquitos were just trying to help you out.

  15. Oh man! All those bug bites remind me of being in Honduras this past winter. I was EATEN ALIVE by sand flies. It was the worst.

    But that water, though!!

  16. Good grief your dogs are hysterical. And those bug bites look awful, I'm so sorry! Try a cotton ball soaked in peroxide on them... it can do wonders to help the itching, which in turns helps them go away faster. Good luck! :) Also, those mosquitoes with their snarky remarks about your pictures can suck it, because those are really pretty pictures. :)

  17. Oh my gosh, you weren't kidding about those bites! Well, you were, but you know... they look terrible! I'm so sorry. I live in the SF bay so we get gorgeous sunset all the time. Looking at these photos made me happy I live on this side of the country where I can appreciate them, because I can't remember ever appreciating a sunrise. Ever. Also, your dogs are adorable and made me miss my dog, which is silly because she's literally sleeping at my feet right now.
