FRESH FACE FRIDAY [& Blog Hop!]: Meet Olya & Lauren

Welcome back to the NON-PROMPTED Fresh Face Friday! Woo! I'm thrilled to see you all here and hope you've all had a lovely week! Today, D and I will be attending our first fancy dress-up event for his new squadron. It's being held at Cape Canaveral at the port viewing tower, so I'm pretty stoked for a night of dinner, mingling, and watching cruise ships sail in. Anything to do with cruising, I'm sold! Although it's totally going to make me want to jump off the dock and right onto a ship. Hopefully D will be able to hold me back. :) We're also pretty thrilled to have a 3-day weekend ahead of us--thanks Christopher Columbus! We'll probably hit the beach and do some things around the house, but mostly we'll be enjoying time together. The weeks pass by so slowly these days now that we've settled into Florida living. I forgot what it was like not to have boxes to unpack, meetings to attend, or trips to jet off on. Although, that last one is a tough pill to swallow lately...but I'm hanging in there! Thankfully I've got beautiful beaches & Disney World to fill those travel gaps. :)

Before you guys head off to enjoy your weekends, take a quick minute to visit my first two October Fresh Faces and link your own blog up to the Blog Hop! No better way to share your space and get connected with like-minded bloggers! Cheers to the weekend, friends!
