Okay, so the name of this post comes from one very exciting night that occurred during my trip to Florida. We were all just hanging out on the porch when i realized that the moon was sinking into the water. It kept getting darker and more orange as it was getting lower and Kayla then enlightened me with the information that the moon sinks into the water every night. I'm not too bright sometimes. I guess I never really thought of it like that, although it now makes all the sense in the world. Anyways...I decided to stay outside and watch it sink and when it hit the water, I called everyone out and we watched the orange moon slowly fade away. It was really cool to see; you always think of the sun setting, but never the moon. This was about the point where I got really excited and started saying (over and over and over) moonset 20-10!!

What a wonderful story :)

Now (as i mentioned a few posts ago), I'll show some pictures from this amazing trip. It was so much fun and very relaxing!

a lot of time was spent out on the sandbar throwing either the football or the frisbee

for part of kayla's b-day we went on the ferris wheel...this is the view of pier park

we also found a cool shop that had a ton of masks in it

kayla's b-day present: a mask and an awesome whistle :)


we got burned one day so we went to get hats...only my head is extremely large so i had to settle for a baseball hat

one of the best pictures from the bro photo-shoot

yay for roomies and friends :)


I was just stumbled across this new trailer for a movie with Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, and Patrick Wilson. I love all of them, but the movie doesn't look that GREAT. I still might have to go see it :)

Now off to go shopping. Sometimes, it's best to shop by yourself...there's no one with you to make you feel rushed and you can take your sweet time browsing!


  1. Ah, I LOVE the masks - such a fun touch! I'm so glad you had a fabulous time; and happy shopping!! :)

  2. Glad you had a lovely time :) And I ADORE shopping alone. I actually hate going with other people. Isn't that terrible of me to even say? hehe xo

  3. The moon is beautiful.
    Ehm, I never thought about the moon sinking into the water either..haha...I'm going to the river to watch it! :)
    Those masks are cool!!
