TWTW - the first one in June

Did you ever almost not get up for something, then get up and think well shit I'm glad I woke up for this? That was Saturday's sunrise.
It got overcast pretty quick, but that didn't stop me, Stephen, Aubrey, and Lola Jean from hitting the beach and taking a walk on the boardwalk where we saw these disgusting candies. LOL and also WTF is wrong with people? White board message left over from last week's renters. Two thumbs up.
The afternoon turned beautiful and while everyone napped, MFD and I hit the beach. I finished a book and was happy to see someone else notices errors. Back to the house for a quick fun plate and to see Stephen, Aub, and Lola off for the afternoon.
I accompanied MFD to Corsons Inlet so he could fish, and as usual he wanted to stay 1.5 hours longer than I did. It was a beautiful evening, so we stayed. I hunted for rocks and read a lot when I wasn't getting eaten alive by flies or feeling the reflection of the sun burn my retinas. We got some late night eats after affixing new lights to our bikes. Or as Stephen calls them, nerd lights.
Sunday was my brother's birthday. MFD headed home early and we went to Sunrise for breakfast before heading to the beach. Mom and Rich came down for the day and met us there. The weather was picture perfect and I'm pretty sure my niece is a mermaid. 
While Stephen, Aub, and Lola were napping, Rich went for a long bike ride and my Mom and I walked all over creation with library book pickup and candy in mind. We stopped for lunch at Bennie's too. I'm pretty sure my body is made up entirely of pizza after this weekend. We rounded out the afternoon on the porch with the dogs where I finally painted my ratchet nails. They were chipped all day Saturday, I don't even know who I am anymore. This is OPI This Color's Making Waves.
Rich took us to dinner at OPA for delicious greek food. I also finally tried Peace of Pie ice cream and it was worth the wait. We watched Lola go on some rides and that was great fun. She loved it! I had to take a walk through Wonderland to see rides I used to love too like Musik Express. They couldn't just spell it Music? I also saw those rats of the sea attack someone and take their ice cream cone. I've not seen them take ice cream cones before. Being a cone eater, it was terrifying.
Weekly food prep: breakfast is hard boiled eggs and power breakfast muffins; lunches are baked chicken thighs over steamed cauliflower; snacks are grapes and cucumbers (Lola's play fruit as stand in) dinner is homemade sloppy Joes (recipe coming Wednesday) with side salad. 



It was awesome to spend my brother's birthday with him and his family at the shore with Mom and Rich as a bonus. I'm glad MFD got down this weekend too...we're working towards him being able to come down one day a weekend! 

Happy happy birthday to my friend of over 20 years and Show Us Your Books co-host Jana. We will celebrate in August!

And happy happy birthday to my BFF also of almost 25 years Kim. 40th celebration with my junior high/high school ladies this weekend. I can't wait.

  7. I saw your sunrise on instagram and kicked myself for not taking the walk, I am blaming my potty trainer for the 2 am wakeup to use the potty. Oh well! We have all summer right?!?

  8. That top-right sunrise picture is stunning. Do you ever print and frame them? I bet they'd fit right in in your shore house!
    I added a period to a library book a few months ago. I felt weird doing it, but I figured those who borrowed it after me would approve ;)
    Why are seagulls so terrifying???! Yikes!

  14. There is never a sunrise or sunset that I have regretted watching! Mmmmm greek food! Maybe it is the use of feta, but it is always a good idea! I was on a homemade sloppy joe kick a month or so ago and you are making me want them again. Hope you have a great week!

  17. It's funny because I always wake up especially early on vacation just to see the sunrise. I'm sure people think I'm crazy but it's so worth it in my book.

  18. Oh, my heavens! I'm still laughing over Dingle Bearies and Camel Balls! Bi-zarr-o! LOL!

  19. That sunrise! And that breakfast at Sunrise(?) looks sooo good! It looks like such a great weekend with plenty of sunshine and beach time.

  20. Those sunrises are well worth waking up early to just absorb natures beauty and enjoy the serenity of early mornings before "life" happens.

  21. I want to see some sunrises! I was thinking about it when we're in Florida this fall, but with the time zone change, I don't know if I can rise that early. I loved Musik Express too, but know for a fact that if I went on it now I'd puke.

  22. I was at this place last week. This is such a joy as a place for food! I had a beautiful time here. It reminded me of another venue New York. A beautiful, wonderful place that had excellent atmosphere.
