Boca Just Got A Little Blonder

The Saturday after finals ended, we set off for paradise, aka, Boca Raton Florida. We stayed at the Boca Beach Club, which is easily one of the nicest hotels, if not the nicest, either of us had ever stayed in. Now pair this with ninety degree weather, a beautiful beach with crashing waves, and unlimited strawberry smoothies. That would sum up our vacation.
 We went to the plaza in Boca for some shopping and photo opportunities. Surprised Alie was in the picture? Don't be.
 Meet our inflatable shark, Walter. We're bringing him on our next vacay to Michigan. He will be the life of the party. It's funny how teenagers who are convinced they're fully grown up and inependent-(come on, you know its true) are so easily amused by crashing over waves on a giant inflatable shark. The girls who have perfect straightened hair even though we're on a beach and think they're so cool a planet should be named after them-you know the ones-got a good laugh at us, but they were totally missing out.

Leah: shirt-Urban Outfitters, vest-NYC&Co, top layer of skirt-Nordstrom, bottom layer-her basement, shoes-Alie's closet, bag-American Eagle and sunglasses-Anthropologie.
 Description of this picture: You know you look good when the store employees ask if you're a model and if people stop you in the street to take pictures. The most ironic compliment I (lLeah) got was when a store employee said they had my skirt (which was assembled of dress up from my basement and a nordy's skirt) in their boutique with a pricetag of around $200. Thank God for creativity-my wallet is not that flexible if all my stuff cost that much!
After spending the following afternoon in Delray for mani/pedis and a little more shopping, we had dinner at this unique and tasty cafe called Dada's. Highly recomended. It's themed after Leonardo DaVinci (get it, Dada's?) and the menues are the trays painters use to hold paint! The outdoor seating is cozy with cool lighting and live jazz is played inside.

 Leah tanning-this is what both of us did a majority of the trip as we sipped our smoothies and looked out at the waves.
Oh....this may have been another reason those girls laughed at us. What's a good vacation without awesome turtle goggles? (Carleigh-Alie's sister is in the middle)
Carleigh left, Alie middle, Leah right
We had one more delicious lunch at our resort before flying home:( Sad! Hopefully we can go back soon! (wink wink to the parents).
Tomorrow we leave for Michigan yay! Still SO much packing to do. Keep it classy readers!
Much love,
Leah and Alie
