Summer Vacation

This weekend wraps up my one week vacation. Y'all....a week off has made me a new person. I haven't taken a full week vacation (other than getting married) since I started working 3 years ago. It was time. The last 7 months at work have been busy, and this was such a great week of relaxation.  I kicked off my vacation with a weekend at the beach with my best friends, not a bad way to start a vacation. 
This was the first trip with all our boys. Everyone is either married or engaged. It was so much fun getting to hang out all together. We all chose wisely, because all the boys fit in perfectly with the BH group :)
We celebrated our bride best friend, and just soaked up time with each other. 

 After the wedding weekend, Fletch and I stayed to enjoy a little vacay, just the two of us. It was wonderful! Long overdue and so much fun. We ate delicious food and just relaxed on the beach.

Tuesday my scorched skin needed a little break. We went to the Seaside farmer's market and then spent the rest of the morning strolling around Rosemary Beach. 
This trip, we tried multiple new restaurants. I had two favorites...Stinky's Fish Camp & V Seagrove. We caught Stinky's on Taco Tuesday. I couldn't resist the shrimp, but Fletcher ordered a medley of fish tacos. 
We went to V Seagrove on our last night...such a treat! 

I had the Mahi Mahi with a goat cheese grit cake and a scallion aioli. Fletcher ordered the Pork tenderloin with a strawberry boot beer barbecue sauce and macaroni and cheese scuffle. We both cleaned our plates, but when we saw the dessert menu, we couldn't resist. We ordered the iron skillet bacon dark chocolate brownie with salted caramel ice cream. Oh my. It was delicious. I'm still thinking about it.

We fully enjoyed our time at the beach. The weather, food, and company were all perfect. When we returned from the beach, my vacation continued. I spent one day at home, recharging before hitting the road again for the last portion of my break. A day off at home should never be underestimated. I watched the Today show while drinking my morning coffee, went to lunch with my mother in law, went and got popsicles with a friend, and even squeezed in some laundry and cleaning. I feel like I have made the most of these vacation days, and I'm not ready for them to end! Today, I head to Memphis to wrap up my vacation time. Stay tuned!
