More swimming in the deep blue sea today. It’s still as blue as it can be. Stunning! Stunning, I tell you!

Today was a lazy day. We at Angelo’s in PCB and it was SO good. The steak just melted in my mouth.

We’re having a great time. :) I LOOOOOOVE the ocean!

You’ll have to excuse this pitiful photo. I took it with my phone.

We all hit the beach early this morning. I think this is the first time I’ve been to Panama City Beach when the water was this blue. It was absolutely crystal clear and absolutely stunning. I swam and swam and swam. It was great. :) I also remembered sunscreen so that was great, too. We had an absolute blast.

The kids (Brooke & Chad, Cain & Ashley, & Chad’s sister, Christy) stayed at the beach for a while longer than we did. Marshall and I went back to Brooke & Chad’s house (about 30 minutes away) & got cleaned up. When the kids got back we ordered Hungry Howie’s pizza (yummy!) and just relaxed at the house for the evening. We were all exhausted. The waves were rough (but fun) and beat us to death so napping and relaxing were the perfect way to unwind.

Had a great day. Hope you did, too.

Finally made it to Panama City, Fla. I didn’t think we were EVER going to get here. The trip – which should normally take about seven hours – took about 9.

I’m exhausted, everyone else is exhausted, and we’re going to bed.

Night! :)

Time Flies..Even When You’re Not Having Fun

Hubby called to ask about some invoices. Here’s our conversation after we got that out of the way:

Me: So what are you doing now?
Him: Going to pick up some hose.
Me: I asked you to never cheat on me!
Him: What?
Me: I asked you to never cheat on me!
Him: ~~Silence~~
Me: ~~Laughing & laughing~~

I know it’s not funny to most anyone but me, but I had a good laugh (& so did my daughter). :)

I can’t believe that June is over and done after today. Time FLIES. I need it to slow down.

I had an amazing workout this morning. My legs are looking and feeling so much different. I love being able to SEE a difference in my body when I’m working out. It feels great.

Florida tomorrow! Woo hoo!

Two More Days

Two more days and we are headed to Brooke’s (future) house in Florida. I can’t wait. I really need to see the ocean. :)

Do you watch Toddlers & Tiaras? Those moms make me SICK.

Walking Lunges

I literally almost passed out in gym class this morning. We did two lines of walking lunges, and then one line of sideways walking lunges. It was HARD! I can barely do a lunge anyway, and these were rough. Whew!

I’ve got a new addiction: Pinterest.com. Don’t go there unless you plan on spending a REALLY long time. It’s as fun as etsy – if you find etsy fun. :)

Errand Day

Brooke and I ran errands today and worked on the house. The house is still a disaster from things we got from my late grandparents house. Each of their grandchildren got to go through and pick out things we wanted. I came away with several sentimental things, nothing of any value, but my favorite possession is my grandparents beautiful marriage certificate that I will always treasure.

Did I tell you that we are considering going on a cruise next year? We are. We’ve never been on one. I’m so excited. I think we’re going to go with the Royal Caribbean cruise line. I’ve been researching and that line seems to be more adult-oriented. Ever been on on one? Where did you go?
