Vacay, I Hate You When You Go Away.

April 27, 2011 · 23 comments

Sorry I’m a big jerk. I took a nice selfish break from life for a little rendezvous in Myrtle Beach for Easter.

I skip on the beach. because I love it so.

And it waaas gloooorious!

My friend Bethany joined me on our adventures. Aaaand Bethany is hysterical. Honestly. I should let her guest post on here at some point, because ya’ll would love her.

I was made for beach bumming.

Sand was played in outlets were dominated, books were read, washers were played, beach jogs were had, wine glasses were painted, wine was consumed…

Seriously. Could there be another perfect vacation with my name written all over it? I’ll provide you all with a photo-filled recap of our Easter getaway.

I found a sa-weeeet coozie at a potty stop along the way.

We had a totally unplanned Target matching
V-neck moment on our beach jog.

(Pronounced “yog.” With a silent J. Because I am Ron Burgundy?)

I bought some exciting new digs… see: shirt, purse, and bracelets.

We attended the best happy hour known to mankind: live band, a brewery, and…

SOFT PRETZELLSSSSS!

Do I get my love for food from my daddy?

Bethany lent a hand when there were more
important things to do than get ready.

And my parents’ buddies arrived for Easter…
My mom’s BFF, Andie, LOVES when she gets to be on the blog.

“We’re the two best friends that anyone can have”

The Bobs. Yes, they even have the same name.
And yes, my dad’s clearly making fun of my picture cheeses.

He’s jealous.

Then this pretty baby made an appearance on the beach.

I got a washers game for Christmas… aaaand it’s the best themed washers game ever.

I’m feelin’ some cookouts in my backyard soon. Phillies washers, cornhole, maybe a slip n slide… who’s in?

(Bobs vs. girls)

Just watch out. Cause when it comes to washers, I’m a ringer.


and then I’ll show you my victory dance.

And is anyone else obsessed with these reusable plastic cups WITH A STRAW?

I drink everything with a straw. And I was sold when I found this cute little Life is Good cup. Bethany and I used these babies for our coffee every day on the beach. Uh… win!

And then we dyed Easter eggs. Yes, I’m 23, and
no, I haven’t missed a year yet.

Easter dinner took place at Bonefish. I love, love, love that restaurant, and I never seem to live near one.

Holding hands on Easter. It’s what we do.

Please don’t scoff at me for not eating ham or lamb for Easter dinner. Cause my salmon with artichokes and goat cheese rocked my happy little world.

And don’t you worry, we didn’t forget to take beach pictures on our last night. And Bethany was so disappointed the whole clan wasn’t around to do the yearly white-and-khaki beach photo.

Maybe next time, Bethany.

And by yearly, I mean yearly. Check it out. Every August, the whole family comes to the beach. And we take a picture together. In our white and khaki.

This past August we gave the white/khaki combo a rest and wore shirts on honor of Poppop turning 90 years old. :)

I know you wish you were part of my fam.
