Beach Weekend

So who's excited for the premiere of The Bachelorette tonight???????  I've been counting down since Brad gave Emily the rose!  Afterall, following the bachelor/bachelorette folks is the initial reason I joined twitter!  :)  I know, I'm crazy!

And PS - J. Crew is having a great sale today - 30% off sale items plus free shipping over $100.  I always order over $100 and take back what I don't want to the store.  Just confirm it isn't final sale! 

We had a wonderful time at North Myrtle Beach, SC with Kevin's family this past weekend.  Kevin and I drove down early Friday morning and joined them.  We hung out on the beach for a little while that afternoon and then got ready for dinner at Abuelo's.  It was a pretty good mexican place but ladies - these portions were enormous!!!  Look at Kevin's!

Needless to say, we needed to do some walking at the mall!  Brittany and I...

After walking around the mall - here are all of us!  L to R - Brittany, Joe, me, Kevin, Mr. G. and Mrs. G.

On Saturday Anna Kate and Emily were sweet enough to drive up from Pawley's Island.  It was SO much fun getting to hang out with them all day.  Here's my girl.  She's definitely from our family - sticks her tongue out when concentrating!  Kevin often laughs at me while I do that in the kitchen trying to figure out a recipe. 

She is simply a gem.  I love being an Aunt!

This is bathing suit #3 of the day.  Unfortunately I didn't capture #1 but it was pink and had a tutu on it! ;)

Seriously can she get any cuter?

Kevin walked his Mom up to the room and came back with a shower cap to give to Anna Kate to play with at the pool.  I have no clue where he came up with that but she loved it.

This was when we were heading out.  She had her swim cover up on...totally in style.

Thank you to Emily for yall coming up to visit us.  It made my day!  Wish we could have seen my brother too but he was selling a boat.  He said someone had to work for their family!!  ;)

We had so much fun!  I just want to see her every day.  I hate living so far away!

That night, we got cleaned up and headed to dinner and the Carolina Opry.  We had front and center tickets and boy it was a show!  They played lots of country and gospel music and had amazing talent, both singers and dancers!

Kevin's brother and SIL.

Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. G. for a special weekend at the beach!  We had the best time!


  1. Cute outfits! And.. that is a ginormous portion. Holy Cow!

  2. I owe you big time! I never watch TV so I had no idea that tonight was the premier of The Bachelorette. Thank you so much for posting it. We are going to Mrytle Beach this coming weekend and I am so ready. Love all the pictures.

  4. Ha, no Kevin isn't a twin! His brother is 3 years younger than him! :)

  5. Great photos! I am excited for the bachelorette because she's crazy! Have you heard the great news on the paperback version of my novel? I'm so excited and would love you to head over to hear. Have a fantastic Monday doll! Kori xoxo

  6. Looks like such a fun weekend--Anna Kate is such a little fashionista, hehe! And yes, I watched the Bachelorette, but my friends and I were all giggling and chatting so much we all said we'd have to re-watch on our own time online!

  7. Oh my gosh... she is adorable!
    Looks like a great weekend. I need some beach!
