Salt Life and Daruma (Jax Beach)

Hey lovelies!

I apologize for my absence this week.  I had an extremely hectic week at work.  But anywho….my wonderful man surprised me this weekend with an in town get-away!  He got us a hotel room with a magnificent view of the beach!!!  I was able to view two weddings from our room balcony!  This one was my fav!


The decor was simple and the colors were bright pink and orange!


We went swimming at the hotel pool and at the beach! Something I haven’t done in a while!  It was soooo much fun! Had an amazing time with my sweetie!!! Later on in the evening we went to dinner.  Here is what I was wearing.


Earrings: Bealls Outlet

Dress: En Focus Studio via Ross

Heels:  D Shoes 

Ring:  Gift from a friend

Bracelets:  Body Central

After checking out the night scene at the beach for a little while, we went to Daruma Japanese Steakhouse for dinner.  It’s probably one of the best in town.

We got there kind of late so we couldn’t get a seat where the chef puts on a show while preparing your food right in front of you…bummer. The ambiance was still very nice, service is great, and the amount of food you’re given is well worth the $$$.

Love the kimono!!!

The fountain was really pretty!

The food was delicious but the picture of the soup is really the only one that wasn’t blurry… 

 and the picture of the steak, chicken, and shrimp…YUMMMMM… UMMM!!! I had some shrimp sauce on the side and if you know about Hibachi, shrimp sauce is a MUST!!!

I had a beautiful evening with my love and I hope you all had a beautiful weekend as well!!!  Have a wonderful week!!!
