Update













My mom took Sage and Ava to Perdido Key a couple of weeks ago and while they were away, we did a little beach visiting too. Instead of driving 14 hours to the Gulf of Mexico, we drove 2 1/2 hours to my parent in laws. The beach was amazing. Clear and warm and luckily shark free from what we could tell. Joe and Douglas love to play frisbee and I like to take photos and watch. 

I'm lucky to get my photo taken and this year it has been all about the visor, the croakies and this hair clip. I'm super stylish I know. Not. 

See Belize: Stay Bird Island









I haven't done one of these in awhile and I am so excited to bring you another great find! We are planning a getaway soon with just the hubby and I- married 15 years this December. Belize is a top destination for us and as I'm looking I see this quaint spot you can live out on an island away from it all. The older I get, I just want to get away from everybody now and then. Listen to my thoughts. Read a book in peace and not hear any noises but the ones I make.

If anyone who reads my blog has been to any of these places I have suggested, I would love to know you own personal take on them. Thanks!

7 Things


1.  This Blueberry Zucchini Muffin recipe I'm putting Douglas in charge of while I attend meetings tomorrow morning.

2. This salad I'm eating for lunch at Baker's Crust tomorrow after those meetings while I catch up with gossip from my Mississippi gal, Rita.

3. This shower curtain.

4. This new after shower cream I purchased from the good ole Ulta with a 3 dollar off coupon I clipped in the paper.

5. Why didn't I come up with this?

6. This beer!

7. This food, who even has time for all this?

Give me your 7, or at least 1.

Last Swim Meet: Indigo Park Stingrays











It's always bittersweet for the last swim meet of the summer season. The kids are happy mornings don't equal swim practice and the parents are happy Mondays don't necessarily equal volunteer assignments but the meets are what keeps everyone excited and they are ending. Our last meet was in Newport News this past Monday. Warm ups went well and the IM's even got finished but right when the little ones where stepping on the blocks for their 25's, a huge clap of thunder put us on a delay. A delay that wasn't just thirty minutes but wound up being over two hours. Most teams in the area called their meets but not us. We waited around until eight o'clock before getting back in the pool. At least the one hundred degree temperature had passed but the darkness made it hard to read my clerk of course sheets. 

What a fun meet. We hollered more at this meet than any other one. Ava came in first in each of her events and Sage even came in first in her breast time. She took second in IM and in back. Very proud of her accomplishments this swim season. 

From now on, there will be no cheeseburger Mondays from the concession stand. Only if we do it ourselves. Until next year, GO STINGRAYS!

Pork Pine and Peanut Festival 2015















Some of great friends from Milwaukee visited over the weekend and we decided to take them over to the Pork Pine and Peanut Festival this year. I've never been. The water version of the festival is much different than the land version. Douglas didn't make it with us but we did have a cutie pie named Maria who joined us. My back was hurt badly and I was on a float all day. Boating can be a bit dangerous; hitting ferry wake smashed my tailbone. Feeling better today but now my allergies are messed up. Hoping for a better tomorrow. Enjoy the photos.
