What I'm Loving...

What a crazy week! We're about to spend our 8th night in a row in a hotel. Now you all know I love hotels but this is a long time away from home! You'll notice this weeks What I'm Loving is a bit travel inspired. 
Here's what I'm loving:

Swimming at Night
As many of you saw on Twitter, this was the view from our hotel's pool at night. Pretty gorgeous, right? Yeah, I kinda wanted to move up there. Having a pool on the roof of the 4th floor in the middle of downtown is not something I can remember ever experiencing before and I absolutely loved it. I've always loved swimming at night and how can you not when this is what you're looking at?

Vacation Shopping
Ok, we all know I love shopping 24/7 but it IS more fun on vacation, right? Right. Go visit the St. Johns Town Center if you're ever in Jacksonville, FL. You'll thank me.

This is going to go down as the cheesiest What I'm Loving... post ever, isn't it? Look, I can't really help that. Haven't been home since last Friday, people. Last. Friday. In all honesty with my sister living 8 hours away, it's not often my whole family is together. That's usually reserved for major holidays and the occasional birthday now, so this has been nice. Aww.

Going Home
(This is August, our dog. Can't wait to get home to him!)
Well, we fly home tomorrow and I'm pretty excited to get back to the house, the dog, and life as we know it. It's been a wild ride the last week, but what's life without a little excitement, right? It's been fun though. I know my posts and commenting have been a little all over the place this week, but I've tried my best to keep up so thank you for your patience :) 

Ok, so that's What I'm Loving right now! What about you?

Swimming at night is so fun, but it is also scary. I alwasy think jaws is going to get me!

Have a great weekend!

Swimming at night is awesome and I love hotels. Anywhere that people pick up my towels and make my bed is A-OK with me.

8 nights in a hotel sounds awesome but I imagine you are also ready to be home as you stated :) Sounds like you have a lot to be there for and a lot to come home to- the dog is so cute! Safe travels :) You are a very nice sister.

Your pool looks amazing! I love night swimming. As much as I also love hotels, I'm always happy to go home at the end of a trip. Glad you're having a great time! Right now I'm loving that it's a 3 day holiday weekend, that I have dinner plans with girl friends tonight, and my new iPhone!

nothing better than vacation shopping. last summer i was in malaysia and the malls in kuala lumpur were AMAZING. especially after 2 years of living in korea where american style malls dont really exist. i was in heaven. and got to experience topshop for the first time in real life.
