Myrtle Beach and Baptism

We had a FANTASTIC vacation!!! I'm sad that it's already over with to be honest, but so thankful that we were able to have such a great time! It's been about 4 years since we've been to Myrtle Beach. Prior to that I've gone every year since I was about 5. It holds so many precious memories, and a very special place in my heart. Needless to say it was wonderful to go back. We stay at the same place, and love it. We have 2 huge ocean front balconies and it's just lovely. The weather was awesome. If I wrote every detail, I think I'd end up writing a novel instead of a blog post ;) We enjoyed endless days at the pool, and on the beach, including boogie-boarding everyday. It was awesome. Went to some awesome restaurants and bars too. Spent much time just relaxing and not having a care in the world which was much needed. I got tons of exercise too thanks to the pool. I took advantage of it, by swiming laps, seeing how long I could hold my breath, etc. What a workout and it felt great! Plus playing in the ocean for hours on end, was a heck of a lot better than hypertonic saline anyday ;) My foot is 100% better too, so the shoe is gone!!! I never ended up needed the Levaquin either, yay for it just being sinus stuff but no infection :) So overall we had one of the absolute best vacations we've had in a long time! Tomorrow is back to reality. I'm pretty sure I prefer waking up to the sound of waves crashing, than to my alarm clock...

Today was a big day for us too. We've literally hit the ground running after arriving home from the beach yesterday. Today I became Godmother to Ally :) It was a great ceremony and of course I'm on cloud 9 being her Godmother. She did a great job, no crying just looking around and taking it all in. So cute!

Well it's back to the grind now. I'm definitely looking forward to a good nite of sleep for sure! Getting up for work at 0430 is going to be strange tomorrow. Hope everyone has had a great week!

Glad you had a nice vacation! What book(s) did you end up reading?

Thanks Colleen. I ended up finishing "Breaking Dawn." Then I read "Something Borrowed" by Emily Giffin. Really like that too. I ordered "Sunday's at Tiffany's" like you suggested but it didn't come in time before we left :/ I got it now though, so I think that's next! :)
