That's Okay, I'll Bring It To You!

Saturday we went to the beach with our friends Jason and Josh. My friend Debra couldn't play with us as she was tending to her Dad. So while everyone was doing their thing, I got a little bored.
As I was sitting there on my beach towel I thought how nice it would be to have a girlfriend there to talk to. Then it dawned on me. I'll just bring the beach to you. My peeps! And all of a sudden I didn't feel so lonely. Thus this post was born. LOL.
So for those of you who couldn't make it to the beach this summer, this post is for you!
I got busted at the end though. My husband could tell from 40 feet away that I was talking to myself. So I started to get a little self conscious! But before you feast your eyes on my windblown hair and cool shades, here are some pics!

First off, this was the view from where I was laying. It was just a beautiful blue sky with puffy little clouds.I had to sit up once in awhile to check to make sure everyone didn't leave me. So this was my view from there! LOL

This was pretty neat. Some guy parachuting with a lawn mower motor attached to his back. Okay I'm pretty sure that wasn't exactly how it was maneuvered but it was pretty cool. Something you don't see every day!

Without further ado!
Welcome to the beach! You can almost smell the ocean!

Let me know when you want to come visit!!!


  1. Thank you for braving just one more example of the ridicule we bloggers face daily in our pursuit of bring the best we have to our friends. They just don't understand us, do they!

  2. I came over from Amanda's site. I love this post. For this landlocked midwesterner this is a feast or the eyes. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hey! You coulda called me! I would have come over to the beach on Saturday! :( But, nooooo, I just sat around and did nuthin', LOL.
    I love you my bestest friend!

  4. LOL I love it! Thinking of us EVEN at the beach! I think we bloggers think about blogging or at least how we can make an event into a post on just about anything :) I told my DH to bring the camera to the airport so I could blog my homecoming.....we love our friends so much though huh!!

  5. Hey girly! Cute post!
    We were at the beach the other day in New Smyrna and I thought about doing the same thing... but fell back on my beach chair and took a nap instead.. LOL

  6. Here I was so bored and wondering what am I going to do this week. You my sweet friend gave me a virtual vacation on my staycation. You are a pearl!

  7. I feel so special that you were thinking of me while you were at the beach. Thanks for letting me experience through your eyes how your day went. I am midwestern land locked too. So no beach for me this summer. Until September and then we are going to Disney for a week. We are going to take a day trip to the Gulf. I have never been to the gulf before. I am sure I will be thinking of you then! :)

  8. Love it my friend! Thank you for bringing the beach to us and yes, you know I want to come visit - LOL!

    We're 2-3 hours from the beach, but rarely head over. We should go soon I guess. So pretty at yours though and no people!

    I love how you were busted at the end!! Too cute!! LOL!

    Big you're-the-kind-of-blogger-that-sacrifices-for-her-readers-but-would-you-give-up-chocolate-for-us hugs to you!! :)

    Have a beautiful day my friend!

  9. I am typing this
    On my ipod while we wait for the dr. From my tiny screen your first photo looks like a sonogram! Lol

  10. Oh, how I miss the beach! Great view!!

  11. Awesome! Thank you for sharing your beach with us! It's been about 14 years since I have been to either coast. Ah...memories!

  12. You are too cute! I will have to venture over there one of these days!! :o)

  13. Beautiful beach! We're heading to the beach in a couple weeks - now I can hardly wait!!

  14. Awwwww...I felt like I was back there again. I miss you guys and I miss your "private" beach!

    You are so blessed to be able to just walk across the street and enjoy one of God's wonderful creations....I LOVE THE BEACH & THE OCEAN! Can you tell?

    Thank you again for sharing a piece of your world with us both in bloggy land and in real life with my family. Those memories will be cherished forever. We will be back...one day.

    Love you bunches!

  15. Wow, you live across the street from the beach????

    Absolutely amazing and my daughter who is working on her blog is saying Oh she lives across from the beach, no fair!

    We are heading that way tomorrow and will post pictures when I get back to my computer.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
