Not that I was complaining! Until...you know, now. When my knees and ankles started screaming at me because pumped myself full of dairy products!
It is weird I know, but for whatever reason, if I eat too much...or eat really any dairy at all, the joints in my body ache like crazy, mostly in my legs.
Of course walking as much as I have recently probably hasn't helped either. But it was fun.
Last Friday and Saturday were spent on a mini family vacation to a seaside town and beach. One of my favorites, to be exact.
We visited an aquarium, ate lots of yummy seafood and desserts, walked through tons of adorable shops and played in the sand and the waves while there.
I even bought myself a massage bar! I have been wanting one for a who knows how long now and I couldn't help but get this one once I sampled it. It smelled sooooo good.
Like lemony-peaches, people. Yummy.
I'll admit. I've been pulling it out every few minutes or so just to smell it. (Obsessed?)
Anyways, I didn't realize how much I missed the beach. I grew up visiting this area a lot and have some awesome memories of it! It was great being able to share a place that holds such a special place in my heart, with my kids.
And while Kay wasn't a huge fan of the touristy shopping spots, he sure loved the beach. But who wouldn't, really?
Emmie enjoyed the beach too, but she was perfectly content to lay in the sand next to Grandma.
Making sand angels (Eww.).
On Sunday, the kids and I made a trip up north to go visit some family friends. Unfortunately, forgetting my diaper bag was not my only mistake of the night, I also forgot to snap a few shots while I was there!
But all that aside, it was so nice to be able to hang out with them!
There are some people that you meet in life that you instantly feel like you've always been friends. I believe this is only the third time I've hung out with this family (they are friends I met through my husband), but we were able to laugh and talk like we had known each other forever. =].
Oh... and by the way? Did I mention that I stinkin' love their house?! Cause, well. I do!!!
It was filled with so many awesome pieces of furniture that they had built themselves! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I was seriously so inspired.
And they had chickens! How could I not love their house when they had chickens?! (Chickens are definitely on my bucket list.) Not to mention the awesomely self-built chicken coop as well. It was too cool!
Watch out, Kevin, you might just be getting some power tools for christmas... and maybe a few more items on your honey-do list. But don't worry, babe. It will be seriously legit.
Well... it is late folks, and I'm not sure I'm making any sense. So off I go to bed! Hope you are having a happy week!
