Life is a Beach

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Mommy needed a break from the insanity. Katie needed a diversion from the “no boyfriend in town” syndrome. So, Katie and I headed south for a few days at the beach.

Unless you see my girls on a daily basis.

If that is the case, Katie and I headed south to see my aunt.

Which we did do. For an hour or so for lunch one day. Shh…

We arrived, checked in and saw this



Yes, just a few steps from the beach (or, that “B” word).

Our days were spent on the beach with my reading



and Katie reading this



with my sunscreen



versus Katie’s.



Dinners were spent at



or MacCools Irish pub



which had country mixed with Irish….how wrong is that??

The water was cool and refreshing



even at night





and with the gross seagull feast.



But a great trip with my oldest.



Do you think Alex will go with me next year??

I hope so.

Are those bridal magazines unofficially telling us something????

Your beach getaway looks like it was perfect and you look so relaxed in the photo.

Looks like a wonderful trip for Mom and daughter -- just what the doctor ordered, right!! Enjoy!!

Magazines are the start of "dream" time for her. And the start of the "money train" for us. But also mindless beach reading. =)

No big announcement...I swear! I'd post here too and not just on FB. I hope it's several years away.

Oh... cuz I was thinking we were gonna get to see another wedding planned right before our very eyes. But yeah, waiting is always good. I feel like I was incredibly young at 24, although I was the "old maid" in my family... most everyone else married between 18 and 22. Ack!
