Boo! Back to Reality!

I was just lucky enough to have spent 3 days at the beach.  Unfortunately I had to come back.  Blegh!  And reality hit like a ton of bricks on this Monday.

The trip to the beach was much needed.  The weather was hot but it was great otherwise!  The sun was shining.  The Gulf waters were free of jelly fish and not that much seaweed.  I was lucky enough to spend 1 1/2 days doing this:

I was able to get two books read during this time!  Woo hoo!  Nothing like a good read!  I also managed a pretty decent tan, for me that is.  I didn't think I had gotten much color but it was nice to hear my co-workers comment on how "tan" I am!  :)

Went to Lulu's one night for dinner.  This is Jimmy Buffet's sister's restaurant.  I had an awesome fried green tomato and bacon sandwich.  It was delicious!  If you ever make it to southern Alabama, this is a definite place to visit.

Managed a morning of shopping at the outlet in Foley.  Finished my Christmas shopping for my niece Cassady.  Only a few dozen more gifts to get.  But it is nice to have one person complete!  Also picked up a stroller for Duke.  Now he can join me on walks!  Can't wait to use it! 

On the way down to the beach, my mom and I stopped at Robert Morris' Christmas Town & Village in Mobile.  This place was awesome.  Talk about sensory overload.  Christmas everywhere!  We spent about 2 hours in that store.  It just kept on going and going and going!  I did manage to pick up an ornament for Parker, now I only have two more to pick up for the nieces! 

I am so ready to go back to the beach! I love living in the south but I wish I could live closer to the beach.

How wonderful. I'm glad you enjoyed your time at the beach. I've never been, so I'm slightly jealous of you. I hope it rejuvenated you for you week.
