On The River

Hey guys!

Just got back from a little boat cruise on the Indian River…so many memories!


Christie did my hair in french braid pigtails! I need to learn how to french braid my own hair….

We packed sandwiches—

That was a turkey and swiss on whole wheat. There was a teeny bit of chex mix consumed on board 😉
We were going to water ski and wakeboard but didn’t have enough room on the boat for everything. My legs are already a little sore though from my run so I’m secretly glad…water sports are an intense lower body workout!!
Christie is concocting sangria in the kitchen…I think I should go monitor the situation…… 😉

    How fun! It’s funny, we tend to think of extravagant meals as comfort foods but, for me chex mix was such a comfort food.

    I love french braid pigtails! When I was little my mom couldn’t french braid and I finally taught myself on a doll because I wanted them so bad 🙂

    Hey Jenna! I am jealous of your Saturday, it looks quite amazing. And sangria? Where do I sign up? 😛

    I started a blog of my own today (, so it is very new, he he. However, I hope that you will follow my food blogging journey! Would you also mind if I added you to my blogroll once I get it up and running?

    Enjoy the sangria Jenna!

    Looks beautiful out there! I wish it was still sunny like that up here in Seattle, we can definitely feel the changing of seasons. Cute hair – I love doing my own in french braids. It makes it all wavy and cute for the next day!

    I love french braid pigtails! And I think it is humanly impossible to do them to your own hair 🙁 This is why friends are important.
