Things I learned this weekend.

In no particular order, these are the things I learned while on my overnight away with my man:
 Two days and one night go by way too fast.  
  If a conga line spontaneously forms and you don't jump up and join it, you will always regret it.
 Baby seals are the cutest things in the whole entire world.
 There is nothing better than an icy pina colada on a hot summer night.
 I love watching other people dance.  Especially old men with jaunty hats like the kind Greggory Peck wore, and old-fashioned moves.
 Blue skies seem a whole lot bluer when you're with the love of your life. 
 Watermelon salad should always be eaten by the bowlful. 
 My husband is amazing at completely ignoring people he knows and giving me his full attention, when it's date night.
 If you meet someone named "Uncle Frank" at a BBQ, he will invite you and everyone around, to the wedding the next day.

If you have the option of Ocean view, vs. parking lot view... always take the Ocean view.
 Letting your husband place the order for the picnic will always rock, because he will always order something with bacon.
 Sunsets are romantic.
 My man could be a professional rock-skipper. 

Kayaking is addictive. 
 If you do go out kayaking for the first time, surrounded by curious harbor seals, you won't want to ever come back in.
 If you do go out kayaking for the first time ever, you will be so happy that you spent the past six weeks doing P90X.  But you won't tell your obnoxious trainer husband. 
 If you do go out kayaking and you don't text your BFF that you're still alive after two hours, there will be one (or more) texts waiting for you when you return.
 Room service is the coolest thing ever invented. 
 I might have a salmon addiction.
 There are not enough thanks in the world to offer people who keep your hoodlums overnight, sneak them Mountain Dew, love on them constantly, take them to parks, buy them dinner, and give you a much needed break.
 There is nothing sweeter than the words, "I sure missed you Mama."


  1. Beautiful.
    And ah man, your pics may me want a vacation!

  2. Sounds like the perfect getaway and the perfect return!

  3. I learned that it is difficult to get out of a kayak when both legs are asleep, that people dancing the night before a wedding are great entertainment value, and that there is nothing I enjoy more than spending alone time with my beautiful bride.

  4. So glad you had such a wonderful getaway. Pics are amazing. You are blessed to be able to get away together.

  5. This is one of my MOST FAVORITE posts you've done. Perfect pictures, storytelling and I so wish that I lived somewhere close enough for an overnight at a beach and wasn't over 100 degrees!! LOVE THIS! ; )

  11. Yo Adrain.

    We are tottering on the edge of communicating publicly and didn't I just post about that? No.. I think we've actually crossed that line babe, so we can never laugh at anyone else who does it.

    I'm so glad you still call me your beautiful bride.

  12. So glad you had a great time - you've earned it! :)

    Can you tell more about the silkscreen machine you purchased? I'd like to get one but am so confused by what's out there! :) Since your stuff looks so great - I figure you're the person to ask!! :)
