Happy Friday from Surf City, NC! If you’re wondering where that is, I was too. Haha. My In-laws booked this place, told us it was 4 hours away, so we were obviously on board! 1 week, 21 people and a ton of fun has been had this week! I will share lots more about this great area, but it’s Friday favorites first!
The crowds are low, the beach walks are plentiful and the weather has been perfect this week!
I never thought I’d be a boy mom, but I’ve totally embraced this amazing life of mine. That said, I LOVE spending time with my nieces. There is one in particular that really loved spending time hunting for angel wings with me this week. We found a total of 25, between 3 walks, and I loved hearing about all the pink, glittery and girly things she had to talk about!
I think it’s always my job to make a low country boil on vacation. Maybe because I’m the only southerner in the group of 21 people, but I love it. I added a bunch of sauces and jalapeño cornbread to the shrimp boil this week!
This Bathing Suit
I have a lot of bathing suits. Like I should stop buying them. But when I saw this high waisted bikini bottom and matching top in Florida a couple weeks ago, I knew I NEEDED it. It was about $30 and fits true to size!
Somewhere between 6 and 6:30 this morning, I found this workout online while trying to decide what I wanted to do for my morning workout. It was brutal, but so good! I threw in some boat crunches and tricep dips at the end and I’m so glad I did it! The Hubs followed me and came in dripping. If you have stairs in your house, a high school football field or stairs anywhere accessible, give this a shot!
We head home tomorrow and while I’m sad vacation and summer is ending, I’m looking forward to schedule, consistency and meal planning! I’ll be sharing a guide to 30A, Topsail/Surf City, NC and some new Amazon finds next week. And soon, I’m going to share some of my favorite big batch breakfasts, which I will be whipping up again as soon as school starts!
Hope you have a great weekend!
