Another Weekend Recap

I had a good time at the beach, but it feels GREAT to be home! I am really looking forward to next weekend which will involve no long car rides and sleeping in my own bed. Some things went perfectly: got just the right amount of sun (more tan, less burn) and it was good to be with some of my best friends after going a little too long without seeing each other. Some things went not so perfectly: fridge that was verrrrry slow to make things cold (heaven forbid we have to wait too long for our beer to chill), no extra toilet paper stashed in the bathrooms, no bath towels, and a hot tub that was colder than the fridge.

Biggest FAIL moment of the weekend for me: while relaxing on the beach, chair down by the water so the waves are crashing on my feet with drink and book in hand, I decide to join some others that are trekking their way into the water. I lean over to get out of my very low chair and what happens then?? Oh.. just my top falling off!!! I was able to save myself and grab it just before my ladies made their grand appearance but the top was a loss. The plastic clip holding the back together broke. That was the end of my beach time. In a bathing suit at least.

I have to say it's times like those (vacationing with friends, not losing my top) that I miss Trey the most. We always hung out together with this group and it's very emotional for me with him not being there. So I'm missing him a little extra tonight. We keep talking a lot about our 4-day visit together during the 4th and I am so so so excited. 25 more days :)

Here are a few pics from our mini photo shoot:

get more than one drink in me and it never fails ~ out comes the tongue

OOOOH! I've never lost my top and hope I never do! How embarrassing, but I'm glad you caught it in time for sho:) Looks like you ladies had a good one, but I understand wanting to just chill at home for a weekend. I had a three day this weekend and instead of going home to Tennessee for a visit I kept my happy ass right here:p Good thing too cause I got a puppy out of it! Lol, I will definitely have to introduce you to Bella. Shes a ball of fun and so cute. I'm not sure how big she's going to get because I'm not sure of her breed, but the paws are not really that big. That picture just dramatized them:p

Looks like y'all had a great time!! (Except for the whole losing your top thing!) The pictures are super cute!!
Oh, I am in need of a beach trip oh-so-bad. Or at least a weekend on the lake. Good friends, loud music and cold beer. That's not too much to ask for, right? I don't think so!

Sounds like you had so much fun. I miss the beach so much.

I'm glad you had such a fantastic time! You look like you're having so much fun in your pictures!

When I do silly stuff (a la the top breaking on the beach), I miss Matt too. He would see that and make fun of me endlessly if that happened to me. As annoying as it is, it's something I miss!

It was odd for me too, Trey not being there. He was definitely missed. But I can't wait to see him for 4th of July! Ive already got it down on my calendar- its gonna be a great time! is it gonna be just the 6 of us?
