INSTAGRAM WEEKEND RECAP - Memorial Day 2014

This past weekend was the first weekend in a long time that I totally took a vacation!  I didn't blog, I didn't check emails, I didn't craft or cook, I didn't do ANYTHING!!!  I totally vegged out on the beach and took one moment at a time.  It was an awesome wind down weekend!  I am back now and ready for action!
If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably already seen most of these pictures, but now you get a story with it!  How Exciting!!!???  I not once pulled out my DSLR, so Instagram is what you get on this recap!

I hope that you all had a fabulous weekend!  Mine started with Thursday night!  Thursday night was Little Man's baseball tournament.  They didn't win, but my little guy hit his first "real hit" of the season!!!  By real hit, I mean one that actually was a line drive to second base.  He has tipped it before, but this was a REAL connection!!  We could not have been more proud...it took all season, but he got it!


Friday morning the Hubs and I sent Little Man off to school, the Hubs went to Urgent Care to find out he had strep throat, got a Z-Pak (took it like a champ), he then took my car to the dealership for them to extract a HUGE screw that was in my tire, we packed up everything for the beach with the help of Miss Priss (of course) and then pulled Little Man out of school early and headed to the beach!  The traffic was horrible, the Hubs was sick, we were all tired...but we finally made it!  Nothing was going to stop us from taking this trip!!

Once we were in Surfside, we unpacked and headed out to our favorite spot for dinner, Bubba's Fish Shack!  If you are ever in Myrtle Beach, SC or surrounding you have to eat here!! Everything is amazing and cheap (for the beach)!  The Fried Green Tomatoes are our favorites.

Ok if you weren't hungry, I bet you are now!  After dinner it was on to Marshalls and Target for new bathing suits and some milk and eggs.  I know, weird combo, but you know how it is when you arrive at the beach...

I found these cute cute cute one piece suits at Marshalls!  I am usually a two piece kind of gal, but this year has been way to busy for me to get into the shape I needed  wanted to be in prior to exposing myself in a two piece.  So, I opted for some one piece cuteness!!  The pink suit is actually Juicy Couture and I got it for $49.99.  Can I get a...YOU GO GIRL!?! 


We also had a little diva model time in Target with Miss Priss.  If you can see, these sunglasses are being worn over her prescription glasses!  She is a hoot!  Her headband is also one made by E of Khloe's Bows. She loves that thing!


The next morning we were up early and off to the beach!  I sported my new suit, the kids played until they were ready to pass out and we had an awesome time!  



See...she is still wearing the headband!

Sunday was also a beach filled day!  We were there from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. (kind of like a full time job).  We had lunch there, which the kids thought was simply amazing...it's the little things.  Miss Priss wanted a new suit like mommy, so we got her one at the most amazing sale ever at Children's Place outlet the night before! I bought a ton of stuff and only spent $100.00!!!  Yay for a sale!  She sported her new suit on Sunday!





We also met some new friends, some that were welcome and some not so much!



Little Man found this in the ocean with him and the Hubs took care of it!  Thank the Lord my son knows what a jellyfish is and doesn't get near them!

Monday was spent by the pool at my parent's condo and then packing up to make our way back home. We had an awesome time and can't wait to go back in a few weeks for our real vacation!  

I also want to extend a special thank you to all of the Men and Women who are serving or who have served our Country to give us the freedom to enjoy time with our families on the beach and to actually be able to have a vacation!  Thank You!!  Happy Memorial Day!

What did you do over Memorial Day weekend? Do you have beach plans any time soon?
