Beach Me!

Thursday, May 6, 2010

As I am still in the process of getting caught back up {both personally and professionally} from my vacation absence, I feel as though my blog has taken a backseat to everything else going on so my apologies and thank you to my friends for sticking with me through all this stress!
With that, I needed some positiveness today, so I thought this would be the perfect time to recap my wonderfully amazing trip to Destin (FL) last week with my parents and beloved fiance:
the view from our condo... gorgeous weather!
time for an afternoon cocktail before dinner
my favorite gal Mom
two peas in a pod
putt-putt adventure
beach playtime-- have you seen my baseball?? =)
poor jeffrey can't get the kid toy to work
the steamer at our fav seafood restaurant on okaloosa island
Mom and Dad about to dive in!
I think he was a little bit overwhelmed
Now of course normal people would be stuffed after a meal like this, but what do we do?? We go to Krisy Kreme for dessert and make fools of ourselves along the way
Sunset beach pics on the pier
Day trip to Seaside for Pickles and Modica
And of course, afternoon cocktails at Bud N Alleys
Back in Destin for more fun on the beach--sand castle time
Dinner and Dueling Pianos at Rum Runners!!
Last day=more indulgence for lunch at Red Bar with their famous key lime pie
All in all, we had an amazing trip! Lots of time dedicated to relaxing, reading {I'm 2/3 done with Breaking Dawn--finally!}, food--there is NO dieting on vacation!!, and quality time with my family... makes coming back to the "real world" difficult, but then we can start planning our next fall vacay =)
