FLOrida = the sunshine state (well kinda)

Case had a business trip this last weekend to Panama City Beach, Florida so I decided to tag along! We didn't have the warmest weather but it was refreshing to not see SNOW everywhere for once. Casey's co-worker Jake brought his wife Amy along too. Us girls just hung out during the day while the boys worked. We packed our days with finding cool beaches, shopping, golfing and eating donuts!

Case and I both had multiple hole-in-ones. We are rule min-golf.

Fine dining at Bayou on the Beach. Our waitress gave Amy and I Mardi Gras beads. Oh and they had Fried alligator and frog legs...yum.

Destin, FL
We drove down the scenic route and passed the coolest little beach towns. The movie the Truman Show was filmed in this one town called Seaside. They had the cutest houses ever. I wish I could live there. The beaches were amazing...I can't even imagine what they are like in the summer.

I'm not going to lie, I am kind of amazing at finding good places to eat when I travel. The secrets to my success have been a couple websites known as and They have yet to fail me. So that brings me to Thomas's Donuts...this place was fabulous. We went two days in a row.

Here is another place I found. It's called Edens Garden State Park. The plantation house was built in the 1800s and the previous owner donated it to the state of Florida. So pretty.

You can't go to Florida without going golfing. We went to a par 3 course and the only patches of grass that were green were the tee box and the green.
