thankful thursday

I realized that I never posted anything about my birthday trip to the beach. To be honest, I didn't take a ton of pictures because I somehow forgot my real camera and only had my phone. But like I've said a thousand times, this blog is a bit of a scrapbook for me, so I wanted to be sure and at least document the high points of the trip. My mother-in-law's birthday is the day before mine, and she suggested that we take a family beach trip to celebrate both. Of course, I happily obliged, and because my family lives near the coast now, I also got to see them as well! It was such a fun trip, and I'm so thankful to have such an amazing family!

We couldn't have asked for better weather, and this is how I spent the majority of the trip. I wanted an easy beach read while sitting on the sand. Mary Kay Andrews never disappoints with her super cute novels set in various southern towns. One of her recent bestsellers, "Summer Rental " was no different. Light and fun- it's a great book for the pool or beach.

It's not a beach trip without some Tacky Jack's

He's so silly.

The water was the clearest and bluest I've ever seen it at the Gulf, and the boys enjoyed it thoroughly. Gorgeous!

More beach lounging

All hail Bethenny! My newest obsession.

More Florabama fun!

Birthday Dinner at Cobalt

Anyone recognize the location of my late night date with Mr. M?

Always a good idea to pick up t0-go gumbo from Original Oyster House to be enjoyed once back home.

It was without a doubt another fun family trip that won't soon be forgotten!
