Hello WordPress fam!! Just wanted to stop in and share with you about our amazing trip to Fort Walton Beach this past weekend. It was so nice to just get away for a few days.
I got a chance to embarrass Eli by asking these random strangers to take our pictures.
My kid is pretty handsome if I do say so myself.
This is our cozy little room set up. Eli thought it was so cool that he kinda had his own room.
We all stayed up late and watched tv. On Friday night we had Chinese take out delivered to our room. That is something that we never get to take advantage of since we live to far outside of the city limits. It was super nice to just relax.
Eli and I got up on Saturday and went to an Indian Museum and to a Science Museum. I have not uploaded those pics yet, but that will be a future post.
We then went back to the hotel and got Mom and went exploring some thrift stores. To Eli’s horror that is. lol Afterwards we went back to the hotel and Eli was just dying to get into that freezing cold pool. That only lasted a few mins.
Mom and I relaxed and sipped on some wine while he was ice swimming. It was so nice out there.
We all woke up in the silliest mood. I loved every moment of this trip and I can’t wait to go back.
On Sunday morning before we left, I took Mom to our little beach spot. She has a hard time walking on the sand so we had to keep our eyes on her.
Once again my teenager was mortified that i asked random people to take our pics!
I pray he takes care of his future wife the way he takes care of his Nana.
When I look at this picture I think of all that my mom has had to overcome in her life. The sadness and heartache. I can’t fathom how such a strong woman came out of all of that. She is classy and sassy all at the same time. She is clothed in dignity.
We were so blessed to be able to spend this time together. I was sad that T.j. didn’t get a chance to go. Our anniversary is coming up and I hope we can take a chance to get away somewhere together.
Now we are all back home and i’m pretty proud of myself for being slightly productive the last two days. Yesterday I got up and cleaned and organized 8 of my kitchen cabinets and got rid of tons of things. Today I finished the rest of the cabinets and my utensil drawers. I plan on tackling the fridge and pantry another day.
Health wise i’m on top of things. Yesterday I completed my longest fast at 23 hours. It was kind of tough towards the end but I reached out and got some help and advice from my super cool health friend. Thank Alexx!! I ended my fast with a baked chicken breast covered in spinach and mushrooms and a little Alfredo sauce. I am not even ashamed to say I ate the entire thing!!
Today I my fast lasted for 17 hours. I had some scrambled eggs with pepper jack and bacon.
I’m feeling pretty positive and motivated and can’t wait to watch myself crush up all these goals. I go back to the doctor next week and I hope I have another loss to report.
Well folks I am about to relax and fold some laundry and get caught up on blog reading. I hope you all have and amazing rest of the week. Be Blessed!!
