TWTW - the one in shore season

Signs of the season: hell traffic. I went to the shore earlier than normal Friday and returned Sunday midday which are the times I usually avoid.  No sunrises this weekend either - rainy Saturday and I needed the sleep Sunday.

Friday night I met Melissa, Alex, and the Stephanies. My name twins are in from CA and I didn't want to miss them! I rode the Ferris Wheel with Melissa and Alex, which I never do and it wasn't as terrible as my last Ferris wheel experience.
After laying my book down at midnight, I put my sleep mask on and exhaled into a long I'm going to sleep in sleep. Only I woke up at 6, but I did go back to sleep until 7:30 when someone was trying to open my door. Alas it was my mother, I forgot she was arriving early after dropping Rich off to do an ALS fundraising bike ride. We walked to breakfast at Yianni's followed by coffee and donuts at Drip N' Scoop. Then she helped me strip the beds and check the house upstairs. When she took off, I did some outside chores then headed to the beach. I timed it perfectly - I was on the last three pages of my book when it started to rain.
After Rich's bike ride, we all went to the Deauville to have a late lunch outside and celebrate Father's Day and my mom's birthday, which is today. Happy birthday Mom! #poophawk We celebrated them even though they did not let me pay, LOL.
MFD arrived with the dogs close to 8 and promptly left for mummery in Margate. When he got back we got ice cream and paid the beach a visit at 11 pm.
Sunday morning was a slow start after a 6 am dog walk. Porch time, bike ride, beach visit, breakfast at a terrible new place, and I was on the road for home before 12:30.
After some rapid fire hausfrauing, I headed to Aubrey's parents' house for a Father's Day celebration and enjoyed my first burger and hotdog from the grill of the season, topped off with ice cream sundaes. 
Weekly food prep: breakfast is egg muffins with baby bellas, green onions, and cheese; snacks are peaches and carrots; lunch is a combo of chicken with rice and broccoli and Greek pasta salad; dinners are chicken thighs owith roasted sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli and lemon roasted asparagus and shrimp. I also made spinach dip for our Father's Day gathering.

Today is also my cousin Ashley's birthday. Happy birthday Ash!

Well that went quickly, didn't it?

Linking up with Biana at B Loved Boston for Weekending


  1. Happy birthday to your mom! I also had my first hot dog of the season - woo hoo! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. It was a perfect weekend to be near the beach. Happy birthday to your mom!! What did you think of the book? I'm so intrigued by other people's reactions to it.

  3. Burgers on the grill, we need to make those ASAP. Good for you for sleeping the sleep you needed.

  4. Happy Birthday to your Momma!! I so want a burger on the grill, they are the best!

  5. You really did time that perfectly with almost finishing up your book right when the rain hit! It sounds like another great weekend at the shore!

  6. Those chips look delicious. Also, I really love that quote about not regretting something that once made you smile!
    I'm looking forward to your review of Hillbilly Elegy!
    Off topic question- Is your goals link-up happening on Wednesday? :)

  7. I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on Hillbilly Elegy. I read it earlier this month.

  8. Happy birthday to your Mom! That ice cream cone looks delicious. It's been so hot here. Blah. I am hoping to fire up the grill this weekend. I am a afraid of heights and have been on a ferris wheel.

  9. That stinks that the new breakfast place was no good. That I ice cream looks amazing though!!! I made a Greek salad with beans this week. 'Tis the season!

  10. I love the JOY wrapper on your ice cream.
    Its the worst when you want to sleep in & something wakes you up & that idea is thrown out of the window.
    Happy Birthday to your momma!

  11. Happy Birthday to your momma! We read that book for book club a few months ago and had an amazing discussion, I can't wait to hear your take on it. I have not rode a ferris wheel in ages, how fun!

  12. You always manage to pack so much into your weekends, and this one looks like so much fun. I've always heard people rave about those chips being really good, but have never tried them! Sounds like fun celebrating your mom's birthday & father's day too.

  13. Sounds like our beach excursions were similar! (Ice cream, Ferris wheel, pedicures falling apart!) I broke down and bought some foot stuff on amazon like pumice bars and scrubs so I can just do the dang thing myself!

  14. Whew❣️ This weekend flew by. So did today. Late getting to this since Mondays are camp Mommom with Riley and Colin❣️ So happy to spend time with you on Saturday and get a lovely new nickname yesterday. 💩 hawk. Hawker of poop.
    Love. Your. Momma

  15. Your mom is so fun....glad you got some mother/daughter time and then made it back to celebrate Father's Day! It's incredible how much you pack into a weekend.

  16. Love that ferris wheel picture. I had to LOL at the sleep in sleep. I've been trying to get in that mindset... and failing as well. I agree that this weekend went by far too quickly.

  17. Holy food! Looks like you had a yummy weekend! And yes.... went by way too fast with all the Father Day festivities.

    1. I also just realized our moms have the same birthday and my sister shares it too!
