Throwback Thursday

In the spirit of throwing back this Thursday, I figured I'd share some pics of my sister and I with our closest friends and neighbors growing up. The first one threw me for a loop when I first saw it on my friend's Facebook page… I thought I was looking at Riley for a second! Scary. LOL

My mom and dad… such a cute couple! ;-)

One of my favorite memories… eating watermelon in the driveway and seeing who could spit the seeds the farthest. LOL

Day 2 of Russia

We took a guided boat and driving tour of St. Petersburg yesterday morning even though it was raining, windy and 52 degrees outside. LOL. Really wish it had been sunny out like it is today, but still, it was pretty spectacular.

My flight to and first day in Russia!

What an incredible experience so far and it's only day 1. We flew all the way to Russia on a non-stop 10 1/2 hour flight via private jet. A private jet that's actually owned by Jordache Jeans. We landed this morning at 8am in Russia (midnight in Florida) and got a van to our hotel, where we unpacked, ate some breakfast and then walked around the block to see what was in the neighborhood. Here are a few pics from the flight and initial arrival. More to come soon, I promise!
