Yesterday was one of the best beach days I have had in a long time. We originally planned to head to a drive-on beach with some friends of mine, but we decided to get some family time in and instead met up with my sister Molly and her hubs Josh in Bethany Beach. The sun was shining, there was a slight breeze on the beach, and my toes were in the sand. Perfection. Scott and I cracked open the growler of Victory Golden Monkey that we’d been saving for such a day.
The beer was a hit with Molly & Josh. A little later on, Scott and Josh left to go refill the brews and ended up coming back with some pizza.
Totally hit the spot.
After some serious hours in the sun (I burned, SO mad at myself for that. I haven’t burned in ages and I’m normally a sunscreen psycho, ugh), we went back with Molly & Josh to shower off and the boys left to go get some grilling supplies. We had a BBQ with burgers, kabobs, hot dogs, & beans. We were stuffed, the food was so good. Scott finally got to meet my sister’s other handsome man, Bailey.
He wouldn’t look at the camera! He’s a great dane/lab/pit/other stuff mix and he’s quite the sweetie pie.
We left shortly after dinner and I am so glad we did. The temperature is WAY too hot today to be sitting in all the beach traffic. Instead, we woke up and got iced coffee at Wawa. I selected a fiesta turkey wrap and Baked Lays as my “brunch.”
Gooey goodness. I spent the next few hours watering the grass & flowers, clipping coupons, reading some magazines, and catching up on blogs. Once that was complete, I ventured over to Giant and saw my “new” gym is definitely open for business. It looks much more open and is way more convenient than the other Planet Fitness I visit.
I did some serious shopping and spent about $132. This is what that much in groceries looks like (I did save a lot, I swear!):
Some things I won’t need to buy now for a couple weeks. I’m trying to be better about groceries since that seems to be what I spend a lot on. But, now we’re fully stocked for a good, healthy week ahead!
Just a collage of things we tend to keep in stock. I was super excited about the fresh strawberries being 2 for 1!
The rest of the day I plan to whip together some dinner and do some light cleaning around the house. Hope everyone enjoyed the rest of their weekend and stayed safe in this crazy heat!
What’s your favorite way to beat the heat?
