I posted some photos to Instagram on Saturday and later on a good friend texted me (to initially wish me a happy belated birthday) and said "I hope your life is as fun as it looks online!" and I thought...I would like to think so..but not really, haha. The truth is last Saturday we had nothing to do and no plans and we both argued and struggled to come up with something to do all morning. John wanted to take Ted swimming. I said no he was too little. I wanted to go shopping. John didn't want to go shopping (duh lol). It reminded me of this scene from The Jungle Book...
Whenever this happens one of us eventually caves and this time it was me, so I said fine let's go drive to the beach already! So I threw everything into a bag and we were out the door within minutes. Something I am trying to work on is just going with the flow and letting go of any "ideas" I have in my head about how a day, or weekend or anything is supposed to go.
There were probably a hundred trucks lined up like this on the beach. Some people had tents out or grills up on the truck beds. It was crazy. Honestly, a little too crazy for me haha.
He ate soo much sand. I was pretty much following him around just pulling things out of his mouth.
The water was pretty filthy so we didn't really let him swim..he just walked in a little ways and would usually get knocked down and then get back up but he loved it. I told John I will just throw him in the pool at our apartment and teach him how to swim there.
This killed me, my pretty white puppy all dirty. But he was happy and that's all that matters right?
But you better believe I cleaned that boy up. I rinsed his mouth out multiple times and showered him with water bottles haha.
It was fun and all, but we didn't stay very long. We kind of decided we probably won't go back again, it was too dirty. The last time we went it wasn't so bad, but it was also February and empty. The whole drive home we talked and fantasied about living in Florida and going to the beaches there haha. Maybe someday... ;) What we really enjoyed though was the drive. Sometimes it's nice just to be stuck close together in a car together like that and talk. And I don't know what it is, but we love stopping at gas stations in the middle of no where. It's always exciting like, "where ARE WE?!"
It felt like one of those long summer days. The hours just seemed to double, and when we got home it was still pretty early. So we showered, got dressed up and went out to dinner since we didn't get to earlier in the week for my birthday. There's this really cute outdoor shopping center nearby us so we wondered over there and walked around a bit window shopping before dinner. (no actual shopping but thats ok, it's really the last thing I need to be doing haha) There's this little grassy area where kids are always playing and there's always some kind of activity going on, and we walked past I noticed ALL THE DISNEY PRINCESSES.
I was temped to go up and ask for a picture with them, but I wasn't sure what the heck was going on...so I crept up and took one picture and went on my way.
We went to a seafood place for dinner, but I didn't really get any pictures because we were in the bar area and basically sitting on top of the people next to us. I hate that. I end up listening to everyone elses conversations and not really speaking because I think everyone is listening to me too, haha.
But John did get this lovely picture of me. It took me an hour to drink one glass of wine so I ended up having to finish it all in one gulp right before we left. This is 27 lol ;)
