25th Anniversary Siesta Key Pics

First of all, if you are uncomfortable seeing Jorge the Jabanero and me in swimsuits, look away. If you are going to criticize my choice to post swimsuit pics, just grumble to yourself, please. I've been working long and hard to get to the place where I could wear a two-piece in public, and I was celebrating the achievement when I was down there. Do not rain on my parade. Just know that I automatically know some will not approve. I'm not losing sleep over it.

All we did was lounge/play games on the beach, eat, sleep. That is it. If you're looking for sight-seeing pics, these will bore you. We basically took pics of the beach, each other, and some food.

It was the best vacation we ever had.

Do you see Sarasota there? That's where we were. No tar balls on the beach. They migrated north.



The flowers you'll see were waiting for me at the condo from Jorge. That was a NICE touch.

The sand was pure white, soft as baby powder.

Did I mention it was the best vacation we've ever had?

Sigh. Here ya go, if you're interested.

Looks like you both had a wonderful time. That sand is so white and it was amazing to see your feet through the water lol. I'm happy you didn't have any tar balls there. You and your husband look like you had a great time and hardly look like you could be married 25 years. Here's to another 25.

Great pictures of a great time away celebrating a great occasion. All the best for 50 more!

Looks like a great time . . . and I don't know why it's anyone else's business whether to approve or not! Enjoy and thanks for sharing all of it!

Kim said...

Looks like a FABULOUS anniversary trip! A milestone that you can be proud of -- and I'm not talking just about being able to wear a bikini :) Twenty-five years today is a LOOOONG time. Keep going girl!

Thanks for sharing!!! You guys make a beautiful couple and you look great in your bikini.

Mocha with Linda said...

What I think is indecent about these pics is the fact that after 3 kids, your stomach is flatter than mine has ever been.

The sky and the water are so blue; the sand is so white. Looks like paradise.

Nel said...

Your pictures are wonderful! Thanks for sharing. I love all of them but the 25 with rocks was cool. You can tell you had a wonderful time! Happy Anniversary!

until next time... nel

Oh my goodness girl, if I looked like you I'd be out there in a two piece too! You look great! Your 2nd honeymoon looks like it was just perfect.

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Whoa - no need to apologize Linda. You are totally rockin' that suit. It is adorable and you look great. YOur hubs us HOT too BTW. If my body looked like that I would totally show it off(I am in my early 50's). Good for you!! YOu and George are a gorgeous couple and should be proud of your committment to your marriage and each other. Congratulations to both of you!

Was this your first trip to a Gulf of Florida beach? It truly is the most gorgeous sand of any I've ever seen!

You look like you had a great time, and that body rocks! Work it, girl!!!

LynnMarie said...

You look wonderful in both the 1 piece and the 2! I am working hard on my body (I'm a lot older than you) and I want to wear a 2 piece next summer! Looks like you had a lot of fun and I'm so happy for you both. Congratulations to both of you!

Dawn said...

Looks like a wonderful trip - neither of you (but especially you!) look old enough to have been married 25 years.

PS - I love the gulls, too!

Jeanie said...

You look FABULOUS!! If I looked like that, you can bet I'd be in a two-piece.

Bekah said...

Looks like an awesome trip, I loved the slideshow. Congrats on 25 years!

Renna said...

Linda, if I looked as good in a swimsuit as you, I assure you I wouldn't be covering myself up! You and your hubby both look fantastic, and are gonna make other middle-aged people look bad! ;-Þ It looks like you guys had a blast. :-)

Melanie said...

You rock those swimsuits, girlie!
Too bad you can't join me for a 3 miler on Sandkey Beach today...in about 10 minutes I'm out the door. All by myself.

Recovering Church Lady said...

wow woman, you look so great! Good for you, I'd show it off too! But my old "Church Lady" days would have brought some strong disapproval! Ha!
I am an old friend with a second blog that you may like. i am Brenda Susan from Walking Butterfly.
This new blog will be more directed to church life and the people who work it, love it, hate it etc.

Again, I want your vacation and your body...but not that way...in the right way...oh you know what I mean!!

Great pics - beautiful scenery! And all I have to say is if I looked like THAT in a 2 piece, you can bet your sweet bippy that I would be postin pictures too! Hubba Hubba!

Yowsa! I had to cover one eye. :) Of course you look great and so does the hubz and the beach and the food and the flowers. Congrats!
