    Maddie is so cute, that’s great that you got to bring her along everywhere!

    Your new camera is AWESOME! I may have some serious camera envy : )

    That Key Lime Cookie and Key Lime Pie on a Stick look soooo good – Key Lime is one of my FAVE pies!

    Hope the drive home goes ok!

    What an amazing day…. Maddie is sooo cute!
    That vegetable platter is impressively delicious looking. I was a vegetarian for 8 years and had so much trouble finding restaurants that could serve up a hearty, tasty, and exciting vegetable option. But rice + beans + plantains + veggies? What could be better?!

    Key lime pie on a stick!? I mean, isn’t everything better on a stick?

    Your dinner looks so good! I think I have a plan a Key West trip asap!

    Your dog is so sweet! She is a great dog/trooper taking her everywhere!

    And that vegetable platter looked delicious. I would of picked that as well! When on vacation so much heavy food gets tiring right away, and you get that bloated feeling. I always beg for a salad and vegetables. LOL I always feel better afterwards!

    That’s a gorgeous dress, is it from J.Crew?

    Key lime pie on a stick sounds wonderful; one time in the Keys I had a key lime pie milkshake that was kind of the best thing ever.

    Yum- key lime on a stick!!! I wonder how I could make that at home…. Hmmm.
    Loved the underwater shots- those tropical fish were just hanging out with you!

    What kind of underwater digital did you buy? I’ve been thinking about getting one for an upcoming vacation.

    “This was a thousand times better then those retarded reusable underwater cameras from Wal-Mart. I think I’m in love!”

    Meghann, please think about the words you use…. ‘retarded’ is no where near appropriate in this sentence and situation! It can be considered offensive, just like people toss around the word “gay.” Thanks.

    Snorkeling looks like so much fun. I’d be scared of all those dollars bills…is there smoking inside that place?! lol

    Key West looks wonderful! I love your vaca eat choices.. somewhat indulgent, yet also a tad healthy. Also impressed with your constraint with adult bevies… Great motivation that a little goes a long way. Also, I have been reading (lurkin) for some quite time and I am sure Meghann meant no disrepect in her comment in regard to the camera. These phrases are unfortunatley so over-used that they do sometimes slip without thought!

    I’m sorry Maddie got sick! I would have too! I love to dive and snorkel, but have a hard time being on top of the water! She’s adorable.

    I’m glad to see your dad’s Gator shirt! I was born and raised in Gainesville and got a couple degrees from UF. My family is still there and I hope to make it for a visit in 2010. How much smack talk goes on between your family and boyfriend? How can you date a FSU fan?! πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for keeping us posted even while on vacation, Amy

    Ha! Dollar bills are definitely an interesting decor choice! πŸ˜› And I would think tryingout all the key lime treats while in the Keys would be a must πŸ˜‰ Have a safe trip back!

    That camera is great! My husband and I go to Belize to snorkel and a camera like that would be a great addition to our trips!

    Looks like a great weekend! What a fun family you have!

    That looks like a delicious greek salad, I think it’s a good choice!

    And key lime pie on a stick?!?! YUM!

    Sounds like you’re having tons of fun! And your underwater cam pics are awesome!

    Glad the weather turned out for you – my husband and I had our honeymoon in Key West – great people watching!

    I’m so glad you had a good day, and what a bummer that you have to leave so soon! I went to Key West this winter, and it was during a weird cold snap in February, so I didn’t get to enjoy nearly as much as you are! Have fun!

    can your Dad root for Florida AND FSU? Isn’t that against the rules? πŸ™‚

    “This was a thousand times better then those retarded reusable underwater cameras from Wal-Mart.”

    Meghann, I realize this was probably a slip, but please try to be cognizant of your word choice – I’m sure many of your readers have an emotional response to that word, and it shouldn’t be used so flippantly.

    I have loved reading about your trip! My family and I used to go to Key West a lot and I never liked it…I want to go again now and “re-explore!”

    DAYUM, that looks like good times. πŸ™‚ I also hate those retarded cameras from Walmart. I had to experience it in all it’s glory while in Hawaii, too. πŸ™ Never again.

    You have got to try the Blond Giraffe for key lime pie and The Key West Winery if you have time — they do tastings and their wine is phenomenal… it’s made out of various fruits/veggies aside from grapes and is fantastic!! We got some white sangria when we were there and also tried wines made from guava, mango, carrots (?!) and some spicy wine too!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ SOOOO GOOOOD AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
