Beach Trip

I am finally getting around to posting about our trip we took to the beach for our anniversary. We had a wonderful time! It was absolutely gorgeous (luckily we beat the oil...) and SO relaxing! I was horrible at taking pictures the entire trip : ( It just takes so long to take good pictures when it's just us two. Some of the pictures are taken with the good camera, but most are taken with just our regular ol' camera so the quality isn't the best.

The first day we got there it stormed so we didn't make it to the beach that day : ( So we just hung out in the hotel room then headed out to dinner that night. We had a lovely dinner with live music at the harbor. After dinner we walked the harbor together where I was more than SHOCKED to get a HUGE surprise...

These are my original rings but Mikey had sent away my ring to get a bigger center stone! (i thought my old stone was loose and gone to get fixed, ha! I was totally tricked!)
p.s. picture take with my phone so not the picture can do a diamond justice

I was literally speechless! Was so NOT expecting this, but VERY excited!

After the first yucky day, the rest of the trip was beautiful!

These were both taken on our first day out on the beach : )

The next morning we got up early, watched the sun rise on the beach, got some breakfast and headed back to bed!


Best pictures we could get of the sun rising

We both got a little burned on the first day out so we took it easy the third day. We slept in, shopped around, played putt-putt ( I kicked BUTT! : ) then hung out at the pool...under the umbrella, ha!

Showing off my scorecard and lucky golf ball!!! This is the first time I have EVER won at putt-putt! And I didn't just win, I kicked Mikey's booty, ha!

Showing his pouty face after getting beat, ha! Sorry babe, you just can't win them all : )

Later that night we headed to the village of Baytowne Wharf for dinner! Such a precious little community on the bay! LOVE it!

Mikey and I in the HUGE adirondack chair

And finally a couple of beach pictures...

Notice the little bird in the picture right beside Mikey, ha!

We couldn't get many pictures because it was SO windy and I was afraid the tripod was gonna blow over and my dress was gonna blow up, ha!

We had such a wonderful time that I am pretty sure a move to the beach is in my future! So that is some great motivation for me as I start classes again this summer : ) I hope we can take another trip this summer, chances are slim, but I have hope!

I hope you all are having a good weekend! We are still working on our back patio, well Mikey is...hopefully he can finish it soon and I can get some pictures up...I am SO pumped about it!

I am also still working on my first sewing project...a roman shade for our kitchen window. I have to buy some more supplies for it but hopefully can get it finished tomorrow : ) Happy Saturday Night!
