No outfit for you...

I have not taken a single outfit picture in the last five days, because I've barely gotten dressed in the last five days. It was a slightly disturbing look at what my life would be like if my job didn't force me to put on my big-girl pants on a daily basis, actually.

I spent the weekend with my husband and daughter here...

...and I'm not going to lie, it was a much needed trip.

I think I was a beach bum born to the Midwest by mistake, and at the very least, at this point in my life, I've managed to move close enough to the ocean that a long weekend on the water is a legitimate possibility. I need to hear the waves and sit in the sand every so often, just to keep my sanity in tact.

Someday, I will live on a coast. Until then?

I can make do with what I've got, because what I've got is a husband who loves me enough to plan an impromptu mini vacation when I start to stress out and an 18-month old who is just so. much. fun. to hang out with that I want to take her on vacation all over again just to hear her crazy giggles when she's swimming.

And I wouldn't trade either one for the nicest beach house on the nicest coast in the nicest location.


(Except maybe Italy...

Totally kidding!



  1. sounds like you had a wonderful vacation...I am so jealous...ha!!

  2. Something about the beach just brings out the bum in me, too. =) I'm glad you had a good time!

    Oh and by the way... I didn't tag you in my "ten things" post NOT because I was leaving you out, but because I saw that Claire had already tagged you. =) Otherwise, you'd have totally been the first person I'd tag! =)


Leave a comment, if you'd like...I'd love to hear from you!
