Vacation day one was a success. I didn’t work out, finished a book in 24 hours, napped on the beach, embraced my natural curls and went out for dinner with crazy hair and ate cake.
I thought maybe I would go on a run yesterday morning but then my dad and I went to the grocery store so I could stock up on my staples instead.
When we got back I quickly ate this bowl of Greek yogurt with bananas, granola and peanut butter and then hit the beach.
I got in tons of reading, relaxing and swimming. I finished Kristin Hannah’s Between Sisters and although it was an easy read, I found it to be very predictable. I figured out where she was going with it about 50 pages in and it all unfolded as I expected. I usually really enjoy her books but this one wasn’t my favorite.
I came in for lunch and made a sandwich with mayo, mustard, avocado, chipotle chicken, monterey jack, tomatoes and spinach on sourdough. I had Kettle Chips and apple slices on the side with some sweet tea to wash it all down.
We saw this rainbow as we were driving over the bridge from Fort Walton to Destin on our way to dinner last night. It was a full rainbow and so pretty!
We were feeling something casual so we had dinner at Callahan’s Restaurant & Deli. I ordered a salad with grilled tuna on top. It was a huge salad and packed with apples, dried cranberries, walnuts, tomatoes and cucumbers.
I have to admit that I ordered a salad not only because I was craving a veggie-heavy dinner but also because I spotted the dessert case on the way in. Priorities, my friends.
I had to try to Key Lime Cake. It was okay (the icing was wonderful) but the cake kind of tasted like lime Jello mix. My mom’s coconut cake and my dad’s carrot were excellent though. I helped my mom with hers!
thanks to your recommendations. I went into the store armed with a list!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO SULLIE!!!
Today is Sullie’s 6th birthday and I’m so sad that I’m not there to love on her and bake her treats. Don’t worry…she’s in good hands with her dad though and getting plenty spoiled without me.
Have a happy Friday! It’s raining so I’m off to visit CrossFit Fort Walton!
