There are no rules in Key West!7/08/2014
Well I'm officially alive and back.... kinda! I'm kinda cheating right now; I'm writing this post in the car (for the second time actually because Blogger decided to not save my last post I wrote) on my way home from Key West since we left a lot later than originally planned! So if I seem tired and a little unlike myself it's because I've been sitting in a car for the past 6 hours and I wasted my fun post on the last one I wrote about an hour and a half ago. But don't worry, I took a ton of pictures with my DSLR and I can't wait to share them and my trip details with you guys as soon as I get a chance to look through them! For now... iPhone photos it is, so sorry for the lack of quality on these dolls!
So for anyone who doesn't know, me and a group of friends take a yearly vacation to Key West for 4th of July weekend. It's an amazing weekend filled with great memories, lots of inside jokes (hence the title of this post), LOTS of food and drinks (my liver is glad this weekend is over) and plenty of fun times! This is a really big deal for us, we start planning in September for next July! Not that there's TOO much planning involved since we stay at the same amazing place every year, but more on that later!
If you've never been to Key West before I highly recommend making a trip sometime! The water isn't quite as pretty as some of the other Keys but it's still such a fun and pretty place. This year we got to go out on a boat our first day which was so much fun until we all started to get really hungry but we were at the mercy of the driver so no food for us... But again, more on that later!
However the boat did result in some fun pictures and amazing memories so I can't complain!
One of the things I love about Key West is the vibe. It has such a laid back, relaxed vibe but still enough excitement to not be boring. Seeing someone out in heels is a rarity (I didn't even bring heels!) and the whole "no shirt, no shoes, no problem" saying couldn't be any more true here. You do a lot of walking so comfort is definitely a must. That's another thing... Can't finish your drink? No problem, just put it in a plastic cup and you're good to go (if you aren't driving of course)! And most bars don't care if you walk in with a drink you bought down the road.
It really is one of those places I feel like you have to visit at least once! If you don't have kids skip Disney World and hit up Key West instead. It's much more adult friendly!
Me and my friend have already started planning next years trip (hey, it's a long drive with not much else to do) and spoiler alert, it involves an extra day next year since none of us were ready to leave yet this year. Be prepared for more Key West posts this week! Actually... Does anyone want to make a trip back! I'm ready to go! ;)
How can you not love this view?!? Key West... You are my happy place!
