Babies don’t need a vacation, but I still see them at the beach… it pisses me off! I’ll go over to a little baby and say “What are you doing here? You haven’t worked a day in your life!’”
I have no words to describe the absolute love I have for the beach. It’s a weird kind of love/hate deal which makes the feeling even that much more intense. The love is: the sound of the waves, the sand between my toes and sitting in a chair with an umbrella over me and a good book. The hate is: that I never fail to burn the bejeesus out of myself, sand in everything I own and of course, being in a bathing suit. But none of this matters once I am there. It’s vacation and it’s time to relax. Heaven!
I think it is no surprise what my Fabulous Friday Favorites (FFF) will be today since we are headed to the beach. Spring Break Baby!
1. PORCHES ON THE BEACH:
The best part about sitting on a porch on the beach, at least for me and my fair Irish skin, is the shade. Oh and a comfy chair, access to the kitchen and a nap!
Here are some amazing examples of some porches on the beach.
Can you imagine yourself on any one of these porches? I can see myself laying on one of those swing beds (of course I am skinny, tan and in a bikini) reading my decorating magazines and drinking something fruity with an umbrella. A girl can dream – right?
2. OUTDOOR SHOWERS:
I have only been in an outdoor shower a couple times in my life and I must admit, there is nothing like it. It can seem unnatural being naked outside, but let me tell you it is freeing and you will never want to bathe indoors again. I would not suggest doing this on your driveway with a garden hose however … unless you are in to shocking the neighbors and being thrown in jail. Just saying …
OOOh – does he come with this shower? Just kidding hubby!
3. ADIRONDACK CHAIRS:
Who doesn’t love a comfortable adirondack chair? They just scream “sit in me and don’t get up until you are totally happy and relaxed!” Or wait – maybe I am screaming “I’m trying to sit and relax and I am NOT happy” at my kids. Either way – I love myself an Adirondack!
All is can say is WOW! I am in love …
That’s it for this week’s FFF’s. I hope there is a porch, outdoor shower or adirondack chair in your near future. Hate to rub it in, but it’s in mine … I leave tomorrow! Have a safe and happy weekend!
Hope your life is more heaven than havoc!
