My dad’s job requires a lot of travel and while his office “home base” is primarily in St. Pete, he spends a significant amount of time in Jacksonville. I benefit from this little split because whenever my dad makes the drive from St. Pete to Jacksonville, he tries to stop by and say hi since Ocala is halfway between the two cities!
Today he happened to be driving through Ocala around lunchtime, so Ryan and I met up with him at Horse & Hounds, a local restaurant that we’ve visited a handful of times in the past and really enjoyed.
Please excuse my greasy hair.
According to numerous pins I’ve seen on Pinterest, people are sporting the lovely fishtail braid again these days and I hopped on the bandwagon before lunch today since it seemed like a great way to disguise my greasy locks.
A fishtail braid plus a sprinkle of baby powder. Foxy!
Lunch at Horse & Hounds
It was great to be able to sit down for about an hour with my two favorite guys and and dig into some delicious food!
I ordered the ahi tuna salad since ahi tuna seems to call my name whenever I see it on a menu.
My salad came with lots of tuna, shredded cheese, croutons, onion, cucumber, tomatoes and a fantastic ginger dressing on the side. It hit the spot and I left lunch feeling satisfied but not overly stuffed. Ryan also shared a few bites of his club sandwich with me and we both gave it rave reviews.
Right now my dad is in my kitchen on a conference call for work while I blog away. Sadie was awfully happy to see him when he came by our house after lunch and made sure to greet him with lots of squeals and body slams.
Sadie has my whole family wrapped around her finger, so you better believe my dad gave her all the belly rubs she wanted.
Time to sign off for the afternoon, say goodbye to my dad and write away!
P.S. The Fashion page was updated today with the details of today’s outfit. The picture is actually from a few weeks ago when I wore the same thing (and my hair wasn’t as greasy), but I never added the photo to the fashion page. No fishtail spottings over there just yet!
