Every year mom and dad treat us to a vacation in Sandestin over the 4th of July. I have been there every fourth of July that I have been alive... so 26 times I guess. We always have an amazing time. We eat too much, drink too much and sleep too much. This year I also got way too much sun! Evidently my new Bare Minerals sunscreen brush isn't all is is cracked up to be. My face burned so bad one day after I applied sunscreen 444 times. Now I am peeling. Fabulous.
We were beach bums the whole week and only got "dressed" for dinner one time! Jared, Mark, Jess and I went to dinner at a fabulous restaurant that overlooked a marina. It was wonderful. I had a grouper dish with a crab cake on top and mashed potatoes below. Delicious. Other than that, we cooked and got a lot of takeout. When we were younger, we would go out to eat every night but now we stay at the beach too late and don't want to wait for hours on end.. plus Charlie has a strict bedtime :)
All in all, I gained 6 pounds in a week, got a great tan and had a lovely time with my wonderful hubby and family!!!
Jared just called me to tell me that he is officially done with his masters. We had to come home yesterday so he could attend his last class.. the rest of the fam is driving now. I am so proud of him and relieved that it's over! I am going to take him to dinner somewhere fabulous tonight to celebrate! (why not make it seven pounds this week? :)
But first, I will go workout and buy paint for our laundry room.. my next project.
I hope everyone had a great 4th!!!
