Spring Break Time

Spring Break 2013 is almost upon us, and I for one am ready to hit the beach!

Our spring break is a little different this year.  My son is at a new school, so unfortunately he has a different spring break from my girls.  A good friend of mine is in a similar situation so we decided to divide and conquer.  This Friday I am heading to Seaside, Florida with my 2 girls, my friend, and her 2 girls for a girls only week of fun.

There is a huge St. Louis population in Seaside, but this is my first time to this part of Florida and I am really excited.  Anytime someone gives me a suggestion on where to eat or what to do I immediately take a note.  Here is what I have so far for my visit.

Places to eat.  This restaurant is number 1 for everybody who has vacationed in Seaside.  I hear they have the best crab cakes, the coldest beer and the coolest bands...

Another favorite is "The Meltdown" technically this is not a restaurant but a grilled cheese food truck.  I have been instructed by my friend to chase this truck down if need be.  I have already checked out the menu and I WILL be eating a goat cheese, prosciutto, arugula and tomato sandwich at least once next week.

Another must, is Cowgirl Kitchen.  I can kill 2 birds with 1 stone at this place.  It is not only a restaurant, but you can also buy provisions here.  We have a condo for the week with a full kitchen so this will be the perfect spot to grab some necessities for some afternoon (or late night) munchies.

Some activities I have planned for the week...

dying to try this...

I have my list of all the cute boutiques to check out...

and of course plenty of this...

If you have any suggestions on place to go/things to do, fire away!!


  1. Sounds like a perfect vacation. The "Red Bar" looks like the coolest restaurant - my kinda of place! And the beach...*sigh*

    I think a girls vay-cay is fabulous. Have a great time! It's been a long winter!

  2. Fun! Please let us know what your favorite restaurants and shops are when you get back! We are renting a beach house in Rosemary Beach this summer!

  6. Pack warm clothes! We just came back and it was chilly! Lows in 50s and highs in upper 60s...doesn't look much better for next week! You will still have fun but beach is cold!

  7. Looks like a great trip. I'm so ready for summer vacations!! And all that great food. Mmmm I always love a good grilled cheese!!
