Hi! Long time, no recipe huh?
I just returned from 8 nights away with some fabulously fun and fashionable ladies! We had a wonderful time exploring the islands, eating some delicious meals, walking the beaches looking for shells, riding bikes to breakfast, collecting shopping bags and indulging in some great desserts.
We stayed 4 nights on Sanibel Island Florida and then 4 nights near Siesta Key on Longboat Key. Sanibel is a serene place that is not all commercially built up. We enjoyed being able to walk right out of our hotel room door to the pool and beach. Lots of shells on this island. We saw an alligator on our morning bike ride to breakfast and saw a guy catch a baby shark too. Yep, the same baby sharks we were swimming with in the ocean. Eek! We stayed on Lido Beach on Longboat Key and it was great having a room high up with great beach plus sunset views. We were so close to St. Armand’s Circle that we walked there for breakfast and dinner, not to mention all the great shopping stores where we collected more trophies! Siesta Key beach was a happening place for sure. But it was beautiful, just like Dr. Beach said. We definitely got our 8 days of funshine sunshine on this play-cation~!
Beautiful beaches, clear brilliant blue skies, blaring golden sun rays, sand like powdered sugar and water blue like the Caribbean.
Lots of pictures ahead!
That’s me, my aunt, my sister-in-law (plus 1) and my mom.

Sarasota Cupcake Co. was our nightly indulgence! I am eating one like a Hostess cupcake and my sister-in-law is eating a peanut butter and jelly one, both had fillings!

Dr. Beach named Siesta Key Beach the #1 Beach in the USA for 2011.
But I wanna know…
What do you think is the most beautiful beach in the United States?
