Living the Good Life

So I am back from the beach...again :) This time I went with my mama, her partner, and my cousin. They all left last Friday, but I didn't go with them when they left. The Rockstar's birthday was last Sunday and I didn't want to be gone for his birthday. We had a pool party on Saturday and then on Sunday just the two of us hung out in the pool and then I took him to dinner.

I got up early, early, early Monday morning to drive to the beach. Yes, I broke my "no alarm clock in the summer" rule, but I figured going to the beach was a good reason. It is an 8 hour drive from my house. I am not used to making that drive by myself. I had to find things to do to keep me from getting bored. I made videos of me singing in the car. I would post them so y'all could laugh with me, but I don't know how to do all that :)

It was a very relaxing and fun trip. During the day we hung out on the beach all day.

We didn't get in the water too much because Jelly Fish were really bad. There were kids out there with nets catching them...nothing I was interested in doing. I told my mama if I get stung by a jelly fish everyone would think I had been bit by a shark because I would act a fool screaming and crying.

 There was a young, hot cabana boy who hung around quite a bit :)

We went in every afternoon around 4:00 and showered and got ready to go out shopping and to eat.
We shopped every night...
We also ate out every night. No matter what time you go out to eat, or where you go, you always have to sit around and wait to be seated....
We hung out on the balcony every night. There was a full moon last week, so it was really pretty...
I got home late, late Thursday night. Since we ate out every night I knew I had gained weight. I am super sensitive to sodium and when I eat out a lot I tend retain a lot of fluid. I had gained 9 pounds in 5 is that even possible????? I had not taken Lasix (fluid pills) since I was gone, so I knew most of that was fluid. I have already lost 6 of those 9 pounds...I peed them out :)
Don't be too jealous, but I am going back to the beach in a week. This time it's just The Rockstar and me....bow chicka wow wow :)

I should have known we got along so well in Chicago because we are both beach bums! lol

Which beach did you go to this last time? Looks like you had a great time. And leave it up to you to find the "cabana" boy! lol

An eight hour trip is a long drive, especially by yourself. I feel for ya.

Which beach you headed to next.

We are going to Gulf Shores in three weeks. Maybe one of these days it will work out for us!

Love ya. Miss ya.

You are looking hawt!

I gain weight like it's my profession too! Eating out almost always results in a gain for me. Your pictures are so cute! Glad you had fun, and if I had to bet, I imagine quite a bit of those 9 pounds is water weight from eating out so much.

I'd kinda hate you...if you weren't so darn cute in all those pics! I love the beach and only get there about once every 3 years.

Vacay looks like a blast and are looking FAB!
