Future hubcap and I (and his brother, G) made the 6 hour trek back to A-town yesterday from our glorious weekend at Pensacola beach. We spent three days in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo with: his mom, his brother, R, sister-in-law J, niece, nephew, and brother, G. Holy ton of people, Batman!
His brother, sister-in-law, niece & nephew were in one room. The kids slept on an air mattress, that didn't deflate, more on that in a bit. His mom had a room and G, Mr. C and I all slept in the living room. It started out fairly comfortably, Mr. C had a couch, G wasn't home yet and I had a huge, double decker air mattress. Unfortunately I woke up at 4 am and found myself on the floor with two huge air bulges on my sides. "Must have had a hole in it" was the popular phrase the next morning. Uh duh! So I grabbed my pillow and blanket and confiscated the other couch. Poor G had to sleep on the floor.
We had a great time, got WAY too much sun, ate, drank, shopped and had a lovely time with family.
Five Faves/Vacation Edition:
This book is a perfect beach read because it will suck you in and before you know it you are a nice mocha brown color and it's time to eat lunch. Water for Elephants is not my favorite book ever written, but I did need to see what the hype was about. I do like it.
So, yes the only music I listened to was that of my future husband... But hey when you've got steak at home why go out for hamburger?
Now I'm something of a pesca-vegetarian. I love seafood but land animals tend to make me nauseous. It's not because I hate what is done to them, etc. It's really just because I have a meat allergy so they make me nauseous. I cannot let you be under any false pretenses that I'm a good person ha So anyway this was the great part of vacationing on the beach: seafood!!
This was my clothing inspiration for the beach. I wore strapless bikinis (hello, strapless wedding dress!) in a nautical stripe, I had my Audrey Hepburn-esque floppy hat and a straw fedora, and well, of course, my camera.
