Oh I had a blast!!!

Hello all. After I post this I will begin perusing all of your blogs. I need to catch up with each of you. Well, I had THE BEST vacation ever!!!! We stayed at the most amazing resort in Ft. Lauderdale. We each had our own bedrooms and bathrooms which was wonderful! We had a cute living room and dining area with a full kitchen. Really great!

We also had the most amazing meals the first 2 nights we were there. We did a lot of shopping. Boy did I shop! I spent WAY TOO MUCH money. I purchased three handbags and another large weekend bag. I found the most amazing Coach bag in the Coach store at this really great outlet. It was only $220! It was marked down from almost $300. Men, you will not understand the joy expressed here. My readers of the female persuasion know of what I speak! I could not resist this bag! The purchase was mandatory…there was nothing I could do.

We decided to drive down to Miami one night and visit South Beach. Neither one of us had ever visited Miami so this was a real treat indeed. We found this rather lively Cuban restaurant. The food and service was divine. They had fabulous dancers and a live Cuban band. There was this couple on the dance floor. Now let me tell you, it was quite apparent that these two had been dance partners for like a hundred years because they knew each others moves and fell into an easy rhythm that could only be achieved from years of dancing together, building that trust. We were all mesmerized. There was no way on God’s green earth you’d find my ass out there dancing next to those two. I knew my place…I just sat there and envied from afar.

This really young guy (old enough to my SON) tried to talk to me. Can you believe that madness? I wanted to tell him, ‘Son, you have no idea how old I really am. You really need to back away slowly as to not embarrass yourself.’ LOL

Then another night we decided to go on a boat cruise. It was advertised as a “party cruise” so we thought ‘what the hell’. We were a little leery at first when we sat down for dinner and the food was horrendous!

Well after dinner we started walking the ship and partaking in the activities and had THE BEST TIME EVER!!! There were a couple of guys that kinda latched on to us and the four of us had a ball. We sung karaoke all night and made complete fools of our selves and loved every minute of it!!

Oh, I almost forgot…we went to a tiki bar one night and saw this!!!

If you look like a crack whore in the face and have a body like Jim Carey in drag then you SHOULD NOT be wearing a two piece ANYTHING! I couldn't get a shot of her from the front without arousing suspicion so this is the best I could do folks. Her stomach made her look as if she was 6 months pregnant. Why oh why!!??

My eyes hurt for 6 hours behind this madness!!!

Is it unusual to have your own bedroom or bathroom in Ft. Lauderdale? I thought that sort of thing was only a problem in Europe.

I have been to Florida, but we didn't get that far south.

What a fun trip!! I'm so jealous-except for the whole crack whore bit.

soumynona said...

Glad that you had fun! Fdale is a cool spot and being only 30 minutes from Miami is a plus. I love South Beach. I think some women think of shopping as a contact sport. Coach bag deals are like super bowl rings to ya'll

Opinionated Diva said...

lmao@that woman. She has the longest back...absolutely no figure what so ever!

Sounds like you had a great time. I love the cuban spots in Miami...very lively and lots of fun!

magnoliapeach said...

LMAO @ the Jim Carrey look alike. I thought it was a man at first, b/c there wasn't a hip, butt, or any other equally feminine feature present. LOL

Glad you had a great time!

BWAHHHHHHHH

CapCity said...

Glad u had a blast! I've never been to florida, gotta check it out. that youngstah was probably seeking a sugar mama - i hear florida is bad as LA w/ it's money-seeking hounds.

ButErrUmmm, Diva...i'm one female who really doesn't understand the fascination w/ bags & purses. Shoes, I get, but I went through a phase of joining my girls in their coach obsession & now I'm trying to get rid of 'em all (the girls & the bags. LOL!)...i don't need more baggage. LOL!

Lucy said...

I've never been to South Beach. I keep hearing about the "madness" though, so I'm intrigued to read about your take on it.

Doesn't everyone (men and women) look like a Supermodel down there? Were you at all intimidated, especially being compare to the women?

The Diva's Thoughts said...

Lucy----Nope, not everyone was the "model type" there. I saw all kinds of different people. It was really cool. There really is no intimidation involved because there as so many different people of all shapes, sizes and colors. It was great.

Ms. Behaving said...

It's not even a clear pic and I feel sick so I can only imagine what the up close and personal did to you [LOL]

Glad to hear you guys had a fabulous time.

Erica AP said...

When will the crack whores learn??? Haha... Glad you had a good time. :)

Shai said...

Call me a party-pooper, I cannot get with spending 2 hunned on a purse. LOL. Then again I am a shoe person, I am not into purses that much. LOL.
I am glad you got away and had fun. It feels good to do that.

The Ambiguous Blob said...

okay.. but was the young guy legal? The young ones have so much energy and... cuteness.

Tired of being broke said...

Ms Diva, you are so damn lucky my stomach is strong. If you had made me bring up my chinese food, we would have a problem.
What is sams hell is that in the pic? Do you need to have your eyes checked? That has to be a man....nothing on that says woman.

Glad you had a blast. Am hoping to visit Fort Lauderdale before the end of the year.

qofd said...
