(Foyer/Entry room as you come in front door. The slider doors allow the option of bringing the outside in and vice-versa)

This morning as I got up to get the kids ready for school, I noticed that the house felt a bit more chilly than normal. When I took Kenidi out to get her on the bus, I realized why. South Florida was a beautiful 76 degrees this morning. The weather men predicted right this time. We had a "cold front" come thru overnight and it broke up the humidity we normally feel around here at that hour. It was such a pleasant relief. Therefore, after I got Brennen and his little friend Tyler on the bus, I drove to Starbucks - got my normal morning iced carmel machiatto (decaf and nonfat) along with my regular oatmeal with brown sugar. I then proceeded to come home, turned up the air conditioning because it was still so cool inside the house and then I rolled back all of the sliders on the back of the house and let the outside in. I normally don't open the sliders very much because I'm afraid we'll end up with a ton of little lizards zipping thru here which freaks me out. However today is just too beautiful not to.

I grabbed my starbucks and my laptop and headed out to listen to the fountain on the pool, and observe the ducks, river otters, huge turtles and white Florida birds in the pond, out back. Florida wildlife at its finest. Thankfully I haven't witnessed any snakes or alligators as of yet this morning. :) They have these new rugs down here that are outdoor shag carpet rugs. I love ours because I can walk out there, kick my flip flops off, and still feel like I'm walking on carpet. Way cool!

In the end, Baby Seaman and I propped my big swollen fet, legs, and pregnant cankles up on the ottoman and enjoyed the morning. I had some more images to edit and get to the magazines editor from another shoot they had me do yesterday afternoon. It was a great spot to sit and do what I love to do. Talk about relaxation. This spot is the epitome' of relaxation. I could sleep out here if I didn't have to worry about lizards getting into my ear drums. LOL!

I'm headed to the mall in a bit to try and find a new outfit to wear out to dinner tonight. I'm so sick of maternity clothes and they are sick of me. We are going out to dinner with 3 other couples from our neighborhood tonight. I need something fresh and new to wear. My maternity sun dresses and such look like I've had them for 15 years now because I've worn them out so much. YUCK! On the first Friday of every month this particular place we are going to has live bands outdoors and FAB restaurants that offer outdoor seating amongst the goings on. Florida really knows how to do up an evening of dining outdoors. That is one of my most favorite things about living here - the outdoor dining experience. Grandma Debbie arrived yesterday afternoon and has obliged to watch the kiddo's for us while we go out with our neighbor friends. Brennen and Kenidi are so glad she is here and they will have a ball with her this evening, I'm sure. We are getting out and about with friends down here as often as we can over the next 8.5 weeks. My free time is becoming very limited and we plan to soak up as many outings as we can before Baby Seaman arrives on December 2nd.

I hope each of you have a great weekend & play safe no matter what your activities are. Big hugs and much love, Angie

PS...Many of you have recently inquired about my blog no longer sending you automatic email updates as it used to. Apparently when we had to switch servers over from blogger to blogspot earlier this year, the feed quit sending email updates of my blog posts. My web gal worked on some of this yesterday and we are hoping we might have the problem resolved. However, we won't know for sure until I hit publish on this post. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we found the solution and you will should all begin getting the updates via your email inbox again. (if you are signed up to receive it that way) So many of you thought I had quit blogging all together only to discover I'm still here and blogging away. I apologize for any inconvenience regarding the change in servers. That whole experience is such a pain in my rear. Grrrr! Thank goodness my web gal knows what she is doing with it all because I sure don't! :)

UPDATE: The problem has been solved and you should now be receiving the automatic email updates again. I confirmed this with my own account just a bit ago and thru a few of you who emailed me saying you got the last post via email as well. If you aren't signed up to receive my blog updates via email but would like to be, go to the "subscribe" link at the top of this page - in the tool/navigation bar and click on it. It will then give you an option of getting the updates via email. Click that and enter your email address. You will be emailed an opt in feature which you will have to confirm by clicking a specific link but once you've done that, you should start receiving them automatically. Hope this helps everyone. A huge thanks to all of you who emailed me - concerned that I was no longer blogging. It feels good to be "missed" even though I was still here all along. LOL!

Hey, I wondered what was up with never getting your posts on my reader. Then, a few days ago, a bunch came through all at once and now I'm getting them just fine. Very cool! LOVE your house, girlie! You know we've all been dying for a sneak peek but didn't want to actually "ask" cuz then we'd look like the creepy stalkers that we actually are. HA! Love how you went with a warm beachy look. Do you know that I would kill for a pool and sitting area on the back of my house that looks like that? Sigh.....It's gorgeous! Oh, and by the way, I'm not seeing any cankle action going on there...just cute little tan preggo legs! :-)

Hi Jacqui. I believe you have to set up a profile with in order for you to have a photo and name with your posts. Even if you don't have a blog, you can still set up a profile. I hope this helps some. :)

Hey, Angie~~~

Long time no comment from me but wanted to say "hey" and tell you that I am receiving your posts now in my e-mail with no problems.

Thanks so much for sharing your home pics with us. Wow, just wow is all I gotta say! I do have a question about your foyer/entry area if you don't mind~~~~~~~~~~~love the flooring! Is it stained concrete or actual tiles? I have pulled up my carpet and can't decide if I want to do stained concrete or some wood(fake, of course). Can you help me out?

Congrats on your photography business doing so well. You'll succeed wherever you go!

Good luck with the new baby! Can't wait for pics!

Hugs and blessings,

Hi Angie~your home is beautiful! I live in New Jersey & it's rainy, windy & cool up here. It sure looks gorgeous in Naples.
Even though it's fall & I should welcome the chill, I'd give anything to prop my feet up in the sun & enjoy the view of the pool.
Here, all I'm looking at are grey skies.

Helen, Great to hear from you! Hope you are doing great. Yes, the tiles in the foyer are actual tiles and not stained concrete. They were in the home when we moved in. We are just leasing this home until we decide where we want to be permanently. The owner is a great guy and added lots of great extra details when they built it. Hope this helps. Thank you for all of your sweet compliments.

Thanks to Maria & Jill too. :)
