Weekend Update

Hi Friends! I can't believe it's Monday already. The Husband and I took an impromptu trip to the coast this weekend to visit my parents. My birthday is in a few days and I wanted to be able to celebrate with the people I love the most so it worked out perfectly. We hit the road after work on Friday and returned just before midnight last night. Hence the late post today. Sorry about that!

Before leaving town on Friday, I made my way over to the Around Lenox Tent Sale. Remember me telling you about it {here}? It was so awesome! It was steamy under the tent but there were definitely some great deals to be had! Here are a few pictures from the event...

Once we made it to the coast, we mostly relaxed, enjoyed visiting with family and friends, and tried to soak up every bit of sunshine we could. Here are a few pictures from our laid back weekend...

Saturday we hit Saint Simons for some beach time. It was a beautiful day until a bad storm rolled up. The Husband was able to snap a quick picture before hand as we were walking down to the beach.

Saturday night we went to dinner at one of our favorite seafood joints. They always have a live band and a little dance floor. It's so cute! We ran into some great friends there and had a little catch up session. I love surprises like that!

Here's my outfit from Saturday night and a pic of The Husband and I with my sweet parents. My dad has a serious tan going on. I'm so jealous! The only one missing was my brother.

Please ignore the poor quality of these pictures. The lighting was terrible but as least you can see the dress, which is actually green and navy blue. 

Again, please excuse the iphone pic. The lighting wasn't good here either! 

Sunday was spent on the dock and in the boat. My aunt and uncle came by the dock with their new boat and took us on a nice boat ride. The weather was perfect! Ahhh, I wish I was there right now!

Look at that gorgeous high tide!

Before we headed back to the city, my parents grilled steaks for dinner and we had a little mini birthday celebration. I LOVE sherbet so we treated ourselves in honor of my birthday! :)

It was an awesome weekend but as always, I was super sad to leave. My heart is at the beach and hopefully I can return for good, sometime soon!

What did you do this weekend? Anything fun? Here's hoping this week flies by! :)
