#egwuatuanniversary – MIAMI 2013

anni #6 – MIAMI!

we had SO MANY DANG pictures and i didn’t even use them all.  i made 50 billion collages to cut down on the length of this post. enjoy 😆

Food Network Mag and Rachael Ray kept me company while Sonny slept.

before we even got to our hotel, Sonny secretly had one of our good friends #gocoogs meet up with us for lunch at Balans!  thanks for stopping by to eat and catch up with us, Udochi!

checking in. loved the square theme the lobby restroom had going on.

CYMERA_20131204_094510

Sonny planned our daily itinerary and the first thing we did was find a nail shop ASAP.  i neglected to get my toes done before we left and packed mostly sandals, yikes.

feet then food.

CYMERA_20131105_205155

dinner at Rusty Pelican for our first night in town.

CYMERA_20131204_124123

well, it was happy hour 😆

20130913_232620_1

we headed back to explore the hotel a bit since we were stuffed and needed to keep moving around.

20130914_080147_1

next morning. you know what time it is.

CYMERA_20131204_093536

we hit the beach first though.

20130914_082202_1

CYMERA_20131105_205850

just like on TV! my first time running on the beach.

next, Sonny took me to this breathtaking gym. truly one of a kind and worth checking out the David Barton Gym if you’re ever in Miami.

CYMERA_20131105_210320

the sexiest cardio i’ve ever done!! the music, the atmosphere, the people. what a COOL experience.

CYMERA_20131204_093004

i’m such a tourist.

CYMERA_20131204_092515

CYMERA_20131204_092728

thanks for waiting patiently 😆

CYMERA_20131105_210000

back to our hotel for some continental breakfast.

CYMERA_20131105_210138

  continental breakfasts almost always leave me hungry cause they are usually just breads, pastries, fruit, and little to no protein.  i found some boiled eggs though!

CYMERA_20131204_092031

later for lunch, Sonny found a truly authentic place with some bomb cuban cuisine.  this man did his research!!!! he always does. Malanga Cafe was a TEN for me and we will be back.

CYMERA_20131204_091750

on the way home i spotted what i thought was a Whole Foods Market, but it turned out to be World Market.  never heard of it before but they had a crazy impressive bulk section!  so i got a few things. as if we even needed more food. also, peanut butter stuffed pretzels is one of my favorite snacks. who on earth dips them in chocolate!?!?!? World Market does.

20130914_182406_1

THEN, i saw Publix!  this is prolly so not a big deal to a lot of people, but i’ve heard about Publix on Instagram for a while now and had to go in just to go since we don’t have them in Texas.

_42

i’ll spare you the pics of the Publix aisles 😯

20130914_213201_1

later that night was fight night!!! we went to go watch Mayweather beat up on Canelo.  we visited Lincoln mall earlier and i picked up this American Apparel top there for like 7 bucks.

CYMERA_20131204_100458

Lucky Strike was jam-packed and alotta fun.

CYMERA_20131204_100624

i took most of that cheese off my salad and had 1 taco and one burger. that’s all i could handle.

_43

i know, i know, dairy is my enemy but Burger King’s soft serve is hard to resist and better than Mc Donalds to me!   i did it for #6. cheers!

CYMERA_20131105_204402

the next day was the BIG day! September 15th.  Sonny found us a church to attend for service and we stopped by ‘Bucks for some caffeine first.

CYMERA_20131204_091455

enjoyed the service and meeting the Miami natives.

CYMERA_20131204_091358

neeeeext, eating again, duh. Sonny did his THING! he found this cozy little natural food cafe on South Beach that was right up my alley! instant love.

CYMERA_20131204_091212

Juice & Java had countless smoothie combos!  we actually walked in just after breakfast ended,

CYMERA_20131204_091041

but Sonny has such a way with words 😆

CYMERA_20130915_184914

visited Versace mansion afterwards and then…… guess what we got!?!? 😉

20130915_192532_1

we let our stomachs rest for a few hours because we had dinner reservations later.  didn’t know where, but i knew it would be off the chain.

CYMERA_20131204_130801

and it was. Prime 112. yes, yes, yes.

CYMERA_20131105_204041

happy #6, Mr. Egwuatu!!!! grateful and blessed to be on your arm, driving you crazy.

_110

a sweet ending to our meal; key lime pie.

CYMERA_20131204_131024

up in the gym the next morning lol!  we found a 24 HR Fitness in the city to sweat out some of the deliciousness we had been eating. even though we weren’t done.

20130916_103807_1

my Instagram peeps recommended David’s Cafe for breakfast, so we had to hit him up.

CYMERA_20131112_231343

today, Sonny!!! cuban french toast, eggs, and potatoes.

CYMERA_20131112_230748

that toasted cuban bread though…….. 😯

CYMERA_20131105_202838

last adventure before lunch and heading to the airport was the Museum of Discovery and Science in Ft. Lauderdale. 

CYMERA_20131204_090542

we saw Born to Be Wild in the IMAX theater.

CYMERA_20131205_105803

the very LAST stop on our list was Versailles, another IG and Yelp recommendation.

CYMERA_20131105_203842

it was just OK for me.  i actually wish we could have gone back to Malanga Cafe one more time!

20130916_230624_1

didn’t want to leave just yet, but we had to get back home to this little guy.

20131030_150607_1-1

we didn’t dare come back empty-handed though- we brought ya a little something that will be debuting in June of 2014.
