Today I got some major sun!

My day started at 6:30 before everyone got up. I couldnt sleep. I was having a rough night and went to bed WAY before everyone else.  I actually REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted to go for a run. I was feeling a little down in the dumps. So early in the AM I went for a 10 mile bike ride. It was perfect and exactly what I needed.

Andrew didnt get up till 830. this is how he started his morning

then we head to the beach……..

for 5 hours…..

I played cards with andrew, read my new book (LOVE IT) and had BBque for dinner.

Then it was time for dessert!




and this is how I ended my night.

I am having a MUCH better day. Its amazing how crabby and sad I can be if I dont work out or do something active!

The food I ate, MAY be a different story. But I burned 500 calories on my bike ride!

Question for you:

Do you get crabby when you don’t exercise?

We made it!

After TWO a million days driving, we finally made it to the beach!

This is how my morning started : banana PB oatmeal and a pancake. And LOTS of coffee

Andrew got to swim, while we waiting for my brother and his gf to meet up with us (they left St Louis last night)

Insert trip to the Gap outlet. Yes. another Gap. where im pretty sure I had a mental break down. (but that can wait)

Then it was taco bell time, and hitting the road! But before we could get to the beach we had one stop.

we all went for a ride on the sand dunes. It was fun, andrew loved it and got to sit by the driver

Ok. I lied. We had one more stop (this tends to happen with my family haha)

we pulled over at the lookout for some pictures


Man I look good after two days in a car!


Thats 108 steps, if you wanted to know

Then it was finally time to get into town, unpack the car, get groceries, and get dinner. But andrew and I had to get to the lake ASAP!

thats probably my favorite picture 🙂

After getting the very tired crabby kiddo to bed, I got into this

 and started my new book “on mystic lake”

Appropriate?!?! I think so too- NIGHT!



I <3 the Beach!

More beach time!

My adorable 1 year old nephew

Dad just chillin’

Sand castle time!

My brother and his son

It was the perfect day at the beach.

Question for you:

What kind of swim suit do you like to wear?

-I wear I tankini top, and regular bottoms. One day I hope to wear a bikini……someday


Im going on a eight day vacation with my mom, dad, son, brother, sister n law, and nephew.

This is all of us in Ireland. I have a younger brother, but he just started a new job and cant go.

I will be gone 8 days, work three, walk through on my house, and then close on my house! Its going to be crazy busy. I am going to try and blog, but I might be busy laying on the beach haha

(I am bringing my computer just in case!)

Here are some pictures from my last trip to the to fort morgan a year ago with my son and mom.
