This weekend, my sister and I, went on a girls vacay to South Beach (Miami). We stayed at The Betsy which was a calming, elegant boutique hotel across from the ocean in South Beach. The weather was in the 80’s and not terribly humid. We laid next to the roof top pool, drank too many tropical drinks (the mojitos were so fresh) and ate way too much delicious food (I love cuban food especially plantains).

I came back with a lot of great food ideas swimming in my head and while I’m working on them I thought I’d share some of my pics. My favorite is of my dog, Izze, who got a couple of new dresses from a cute little shop in Miami called The Dog Bar. Dog Bar I think this cute little pet shop had the best selection of dog clothing that I have ever seen.

I was really kicking myself because originally I had thought of bringing Izze with me. The hotel takes dogs so I thought, “why not”? I would have cost about $400 to get her there with me which seemed like a bit much. When I got there I realized that practically all of the outdoor restaurants and coffee shops let people bring their pets. I was kicking myself because I really wish I had gone and done it. Next time.


The Betsy was lovely and my sister and I already have plans to go back next year. And next time, I will bring my dog!

Until we eat again.
