Working in Bartow has its benefits. Over the past few months, a bunch of new lunch spots have opened up in downtown Bartow making lunch time more fun for this foodie. While these new spots mostly offer the same type of lunch, i.e., salads, sandwiches and soups, their flavors and decor are completely different.
Last night was a memorable evening. Not just because I got to go out with my handsome husband, but also because we were invited to a grand opening in Lakeland. Hard work pays off. It really is as simple as that. Having a vision, setting a goal and working through obstacles to see a final product. That’s how I would describe Robyn and Jarrid from the poor porker: visionary hard workers.
I can’t think of a better way to start 2015 than with a race in mind. Through my relationship with the Tampa Bay Bloggers, I was chosen to be a race ambassador for the Sarasota Half Marathon. And I could not be happier. The opportunity to run a beautiful course with a bunch of friends is something I will cherish forever. But enough about me, let’s see why this is a race you should do too!
Disclaimer: As a Busch Gardens ambassador, my family was invited to visit Adventure Island. We received four free day passes in exchange for this review. I was not compensated monetarily for this review. All opinions are my own based on my experience.
This was my first visit to Adventure Island in Tampa. Yep, the last time I went to a water park was close to five years ago when we went to Aquatica for my niece’s birthday. The girls were so young, and it was overwhelming to say the least having two toddlers running in opposite directions. So I figured now that they were older, I would be able to relax a little and enjoy.
This past weekend we headed back to Boca Raton for a quick weekend getaway. After staying in Deefield Beach a few weeks ago we decided to change locations. Staying near the beach was not a priority on this trip. We wanted a hotel in Boca Raton with a nice pool and free WiFi. If you follow me on twitter, you’d know what happened last time. 😉
