    Key West looks amazing, I’m totally jealous! Way to celebrate with a Blue Moon, a favorite of mine! Starbucks Pumpkin Spice flavoring is great in any drink, why would anyone be suprised! πŸ™‚

    What an amazing day in Key West! I had no idea you could even fit that many fun things in one day!
    You and Derek are too cute together! I’m sure you’ll have just as much fun tomorrow!

    Hi Meghann,
    I read your blog often and I couldn’t help but notice that you are vacationing in my hometown (Key West)!

    As a fellow foodie, I have some restaurant recommendations for you:

    The Vegetarian Cafe on Southard St.
    Blue Heaven in Bahama Village
    Ambrosia Sushi near South Beach
    Cafe Sole

    These were some of my favorite restaurants in town.

    Enjoy your trip!

    That is my favorite ice cream place in Key West, it’s just down Duval from the condo we usually stay in. The mango sorbet is really good.

    I also love the restaurant Blue Heaven: http://blueheavenkw.homestead.com/Blue_Heaven_Restaurant_Key_West.html

    Have fun!

    Cool blog. I was just looking at other peoples blogs and came across yours. My mom was just down there a few weeks ago so many of your pictures looked familiar. I love that my mom has an iPhone since she can update me with pictures when she sees something cool. Looks like you are having a fun time and fit a lot into one day. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

    Wow you and Derek are having a blast. I can’t wait till I go on my next vacay. Snow crab is my #1 favorite sea food. I’ll have to check out Key West next time I visit Florida…it’s been a couple years.

    I’m so jealous your in Key West! My grandpa actually owns a hotel there so I used to go every year for spring break. I’m glad to see you’ve already been to mallory square- did you see the fun street performers? they rock! As for restaurants, as someone I see already recommended- Blue Heaven is a must!! Go for breakfast or dinner, its so good! Last time I was there they had a yummy brown rice and veggie dish and also their yellowtail snapper is amazing! I always go to flamingo ice cream too, so good! Have an amazing time, I’m jealous!!

    Mangrove Honey & Walnut is my all-time favorite flavor of ice cream. I live in Seattle and fantasize about this Key West delight all the time. Between this & my daily dose of the Blonde Giraffe’s chocolate-dipped frozen key lime pie on a stick, Key West is a danger to my vacationing waistline!

    I use the “shaking up” trick to evenly disperse salad dressing on salads that I’ve packed in tupperware to take with me somewhere. Works perfectly, unless the container is packed too tight.

    And I’m with you on the raw oyster front – I love them raw, but not as much cooked. Unless they are smoked oysters, then I can eat them like candy.
