Prepping for the beach ...

I am busy preparing for a week at the beach.  T-minus 2 days.  We can not pull out of the driveway fast enough for me!!!  I LOVE the beach ... It is the most calming place on the earth for me.  Before my mother got remarried in 1976 we would spend each and every Saturday at Indian Rocks beach.  She and I along with her BFF and mine would head out early in the am in our baby blue Pinto and return long after dinner. I can still see her crochet bikini and large hat.  I can still feel the white zinc oxide on my nose.  In fact I can remember every single moment of being there and I count the days between each beach trip!!!

The clothes are gathered and ready to be placed in the large tub, all I need is Lawyer to finish picking out his clothes to add to the pile.  I have shopped for sunscreen and Ultra Swim and am sufficiently stocked up!  Car is washed and serviced, pool and beach bags are stocked and ready to go.  Baby girl and I just had mani/pedis and I just need to gather drinks, food and snacks.  After that I can pack the cooler and the car.  I can almost feel myself enjoying my coffee on the porch.  I will have to force myself to unpack the car before I hit the sand.    

I can not wait to wake up to the smell of salt air and the sound of waves and to end my days like this ...  


I was clearing off the photo cards for the camera when I was inspired to look at old beach photos.  I found some super cute ones to share with you.  I could only go back to the mid 2000s when we finally bit the bullet and went digital!!

On the grocery list will be the ingredients for this yumminess which I only make about twice a year.  It's sooo good I have a hard time not eating it three times a day!!!


I am looking forward to a relaxing week.  We are going unplugged so there will be lots of card playing, drawing, reading and quality family time!  Lawyer will be with us all week and I plan to soak up each and every second!  With as little of this as possible ... 


Let's hope we don't have a repeat of this event ... and if my hair gets all big like Monica Geller's from the humidity and salt air ... Let's hope WPM keeps his comments to himself!

I have some posts planned for you next week but other than that I will see you in August!!!  We have some memories to make!!!

xo,
MPM
