We went to Bern’s Steak House in Tampa, which is amazing, if you’ve ever in the area. The place has 600k bottles of wine so we didn’t run out! Ha! They also have little dessert booths where you can retire for your sweets at the end of the meal. It’s old-school steak house cool. “Ma! Take the photo, already!” We took some nice photos followed by the obligatory photo of Mike telling his mom to take the photo already! When we drove to the other coast to stay in the Jupiter condo, we got to experience condo living for the first time. We call the guy upstairs “Christopher Heavy Walkin'” because it sounds like he’s trying to stomp out an attacking army of ants every time he moves. Other than that and the fact that you need keys to get everywhere, it isn’t too bad. We work from home at home so we used to being next to each other all the time. The other condo dwellers are mostly older than us and they’re awesome. Like the lady who always warns us we should be wearing a hat. It’s hard to complain when you know it is 20 degrees at home and you’re looking at this. —> My husband also gets to make me take stupid photos like the one below. I won’t even bore you with the photo of the sign that said “Speed Hump.” Slightly Series 99c Each for a few more days… A quick reminder…both books in the Slightly series are 99c for a few more days!

Lol. I live just half way between Tampa and Orlando. Caught between a rock and a hard spot as it were. Try Ocean Prime next time or christners. Both excellent food! Keep turning out those great books. This Floridian will need them when the temp hits near 100 and I am getting cozy with the air conditioner! 1 likes Reply Clif Bradley February 17, 2018 We used to go to Bern’s but now we go to Ruth Chris. Slightly cheaper and they actually season their meat. In fact I have a $75.00 gift card that I’ve never used. We live in Pinellas County and my mom lives in a condo on Clearwater Beach. The people there are super nice and the only issue they have is that the elevator when not in use, goes to the Penthouse by default. The other issue with that is that if the guy on the Penthouse calls for the elevator, the doors immediately shut and the car travels up without stopping. We found this out when my 3 year old walked into the elevator at Christmas time. She was standing there inside while we gathered presents, food and our 3 boys. We just kept putting our arm in the door to keep the door from shutting. Suddenly the door shut and off she went 8 floors up. Luckliy he is a nice guy and seemed slightly ashamed there was no override. 0 likes Reply Amy Vansant February 17, 2018 I prefer Ruth’s steak as well. Bern’s had a cool experience though! 0 likes Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Add me to Amy Vansant's Humor Newsletter!
