    Thats a lot of good food!
    Great car snacks too. I’ve only been to Miami once and that was for a cruise on the Queen Mary 2, but would love to go explore the city some day!

    If I show my Cuban husband those pictures of dinner he is going to die. We moved from FL to WA and there is NO good Cuban up here. Have fun in the Keys!

    Oh my gosh, I adore Sergio’s!

    My bf is Cuban and from Miami and whenever we go down there to visit his family, a Sergio’s feast is always in order! Cuban bread is the best!

    Ahh! So funny the BF and I will be on our way to the keys from Melbourne tomorrow at 4:30 am!! We’re staying in Islamorada.

    There’s an awesome breakfast place on your way if you’re interested – it’s called Mangrove Mike’s. We’ll probably be there!! Plus, that awesome pizza place I mentioned the other day on the way to Key West.

    Looks like a fun trip is in the works! Love the Mexican food, I`m craving some good Mexican cuisine.

    I was stuck in traffic for almost 2 hours today (for a 45 minute trip). There was the general holiday and rush hour traffic, plus several accidents and CONSTRUCTION! I`m not exactly sure what they were thinking by doing construction on this particular weekend. I`m lucky that I had enough gas to make it until I could get off the highway. I would have hated to run out of gas and hold traffic up even more.

    Road trips are sooo much better when you have a hot male in the car with you ; )

    Have fun in the car tomorrow! I wish I was heading to the Key’s for the weekend, instead of studying in my apartment!

    i don’t know what it is, but road trips always make me so hungry!! It’s not like sitting in the car is overly taxing or anything :P Looks like a great meal though. Homemade ice cream sounds good!

    8 hours in the car is much more tolerable when its broken up into parts…with a yummy looking dinner in between.

    Maddie is just the cutest! Have a great vacation weekend!

    Hope the remainder of your drive goes well today! Have a fantastic time in Key West. It is literally one of my favorite places to visit; just so fun and historic at the same time. I love the architecture, the galleries, the restaurants, and of course the water. (And the many cute clothing shops…). I also highly recommend visiting the aquarium…my boyfriend worked there for a couple summers, and it’s a very cool place to wander around.

    Maddie is so cute!

    Maddie’s little face just melts my heart :)

    I’ve never really had Cuban food, but after seeing your dinner, I am craving it.

    Have fun in the Keys!!

    Haha, I always laugh when I see these HUGE portions at little restaraunts like this. It’s funny how you can go to the fanciest gormuet place and spend a fourtune for a pea sized dinner but then hit up a great little dive, pay 10 bucks for a humungo dinner and leave feeling soooo content! :) This is the way to go sometimes.

    Have a safe drive. Take care hun!

    Love your Barney Butter tshirt!! :)

    Glad y’all are having a pretty good car trip so far, long trips can be rough, but when you have the right company, they’re doable.

    The best way to roadtrip is your bestie (or your man) and a pooch! Seriously.

    I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before but Derrick looks just like my good friend Clint. I mean, it is scary. I actually thought for a moment, WTF how do Clint and Meghann know each other? haha.
