We moved!

Not far, I'm still in Florida, still near Tampa...only 1.25 miles from where we lived before. We had to move because my hubby got a new position with work, where he is required to have an even bigger work truck (F250), and he was already getting a lot of heat for the little Ranger he was driving. Stupid HOA rules!
I like our new place. It's newer, one floor, and best of all cheaper rent!! We're hoping that with not only our rent going down, so will our electric bill, since it's one level, and a newer a/c unit.

Here are some before and after pictures of our new place...

Still not completely done, we still have some more decorations to put up....but for the most part, pretty good for being moved in for 2 weeks.

Hollis Garden

First I don't blog because I complain I have nothing to blog about, and now that I finally have something to blog about, what's my excuse? Laziness :)

Last Friday, on my day off, I decided to finally make the drive to Hollis Garden. It's about a 45 minute drive from where I live, but it was oh so worth it! Absolutely GORGEOUS!!

Have a look for yourself:
