My mom went up on Friday to visit my sister at college and so Saturday morning my mom's hubby and I went to meet up with them. So when we got there we hung out for a little while registering to let them know we were there for family weekend and walked around the campus a little.
Then after that we hopped in the car and drove around Jacksonville a little while and I'm not all too familiar with the area so I got a tour and I seriously fell in love with the place. We then ate at a diner called University Diner and had late breakfast and early lunch. I got a BLT sandwich that was out of this world. And this is kind of random but then my sister and I realized we majorly needed to get our eyebrows waxed and then we left the rents to go get that done. I refuse to tweeze them. It's like torture for me. Then we met back up with the rents and then stopped at a local sports Bar called Sneakers for some drinks and chips and salsa. And of course all the Saturday Football was on the big screen so that kept us entertained for awhile.
And we were right next to Jacksonville Beach so we spent a little time there walking on the beach and taking some pictures.
These next pics of my sister and I are hilarious. My mom took some great action shots in perfect sequence, ha!! My sister's face is priceless!
And then we fell....
And then we went back to my sister's place to hang out there for a little while until she had to leave us to go to her sorority initiation. And then we went and got pedicures while she was doing her sorority thing.
It was heaven and total serenity, ha!
Then after my sister got done with her intiation. I meet up with her for a night out with her boyfriend and his friend that came alone. This is before we left :)
Sorry it's not the best picture, it was taken on my phone.
We ate out at Outback and then went back to Sneakers to watch the rest of the Football game (GO GATORS!!!!!) and then stayed a while longer after that to watch the UFC fight. It was a fun night!! Seriously, this place had gigantic TVs. It was perfect! So it was a late night.
Then Sunday morning met up with the rents and we went to have breakfast at the Pancake House. It's a local place in Jacksonville. Oh.My.Goodness....BEST pancakes EVER!!!! And then after that we hit Old Navy and I had totally forgotten that I had an Old Navy giftcard that I hadn't used yet. Score!
So I ended up with a beautiful scarf and a new bag that Old Navy just came out with.
We wanted to get back at a decent time so after we went to Old Navy it was time to hit the road back home.
It was such a fun weekend spent with the family and made me realize all the much more how much I miss my sister. But I think we've determined that we're going to make it a once a month ritual for me to come up there and visit her. Would totally love that.
I wish I would have gotten more pictures, but this is what I got :) How was your weekend?
