Weekending – Islandin’, Wedding, and Cruisin’

Hey there, it’s been a while!

I had a fun and busy weekend AND started getting sick (allergies or some sort of horrible cold) on Wednesday so I took an internet break to allow myself as much rest as possible last week. I’m still super congested but hopefully I’ll be back to 100% soon.

Anyways, enough about germs and sickness – Let’s chat the weekend! Kyle’s cousin was married in Captiva (an island just north of Naples, Florida) over the weekend so we enjoyed family time and island life the past few days. It was a lot of fun!

Kyle’s parents and my sister flew in on Thursday. The wedding was “kid-free” so my sister stayed with us and watched Dean while we had fun at the party ;) We ordered in Thai food and sushi on Thursday evening and Kyle graciously (was forced, LOL) picked up my sister at the airport at 11pm.    

(Dean wasn’t into photos with his aunt LOL)

On Friday morning I taught a quick spinning class and then Laura (my sister) and I drove up to Captiva. It was a cloudy day but we relaxed on the beach with Kyle’s family.    

Since the wedding was a destination event for almost everyone – besides us, haha – all guests were invited to the rehearsal dinner AKA sunset boat cruise. It was nice to relax and catch up with family on Friday night.

And I got to wear my new Lilly!  

Saturday started out rainy but turned into a gorgeous day. We spent a few hours on the beach and then hit up The Mucky Duck for a late lunch before the wedding festivities began.    

The wedding began at 5pm and was held on the beach. It was GORGEOUS and they couldn’t have asked for better weather.      

After the ceremony all of the guests loaded up into a shuttle bus and made our way to the cocktail hour and reception. The views were incredible and it was a lovely evening full of delicious food, wine, and dancing.    

On Sunday we relaxed until we decided to make our way home. We stopped at The Island Cow for lunch on the way home – I have wanted to check out this restaurant in Sanibel since before moving to Naples but the wait is always crazy long. We lucked out on Sunday and only had to wait 20 minutes before being seated. Lunch was most definitely not healthy but still pretty tasty ;)  

And now it’s Monday! We should have stayed an extra night or two to recharge after the weekend… Next time!

How was your weekend? Any weddings? Good eats?


  1. I laughed because our post titles today are similar, except I’d much rather have been islandin’ and cruisin’ than paintin’ and rearrangin’! LOL

  4. We just got back from The Breakers, palm Beach. The weather was fabulous!!! It had been freezing in NYC while we were gone(yeah). Love Florida, but my husband is NEVER leaving the city. He loves it. Your sister looks just like you. At first I thought the first picture was with you with Dean, but looked twice to see it wasn’t. Btw, Dean is sooooo adorable and Naples and Captiva are so beautiful. We have been thinking about getting a second resident in Naples. Also, at some point I want to reach out to you about Advocare. I am very interested about it for my husband. Enjoy the week.

  5. Wedding looks gorgeous, as do you! Especially those guns you’re sporting for arms! And this weekend was so fun but went too fast! I finally went to a blogging conference and had a blast / ate way too much sponsored food. It’s been a case of the Monday blues over here saying hello to adult things again.
