Beach time!

Most of the vacations my family take are always go, go, go. This may be my first vacation that everyone just sits stills and simply relaxes. I’m quite enjoying it. I actually don’t feel like I need a vacation from my vacation for once!

We spent the afternoon chilling in the sun. No big deal. πŸ˜‰

Before the beach Derek and I were defeated in a game of Pictionary.

And I had a lovely snack of Cheerios, Pretzels, and Chocolate Covered Edamame during game play.

My Dad made a killer pork roast for dinner.

He coated the roast in an entire bottle of teriyaki sauce and baked it all afternoon. By the time we got home from the beach it was perfect.

I divided my plate in half and had an extra large serving of broccoli and peppers on one half.

Then split the other half by half again and served myself a quarter of a plate of pork roast.

And a quarter of a plate of potatoes.

Derek and I cracked open one of the bottles of wine we purchased on our trip to San Francisco last month to pair with dinner.

It was just as good as I remembered. I had 2.5 glasses. πŸ™‚

We made CUPCAKES for dessert!

They weren’t pretty, but they sure were tasty!

I had one while watching the sunset.

Meghann, I really admire your ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle on vacation! I always have the best of intentions and then end up pigging out by the end of the week. I may have missed this, but what island are you vacationing on? My fiancΓ© and I are looking for U.S. honeymoons! πŸ˜€

I am so jealous of your vaca!
I have that polka dot suit but its yellow and white and the top is like a triangle halter top. I love it!
beautiful sunset again.

Did you say that’s somewhere near Tampa? I used to live in Lutz (sort of a suburb of Tampa), and I’m getting so homesick reading your blog! Hehe.

You look like you’re having a blast! Yay for vacations!

I love that bathing suit! I’ve been contemplating whether or not to buy it, but I think you just helped me make up my mind!

9 Melissa June 10, 2010 at 10:50 pm

10 Jenny June 10, 2010 at 11:16 pm

Chocolate covered edamame??!?!?! I’ve never heard of that!

11 AngelaOSG June 10, 2010 at 11:42 pm

You look soooo relaxed! πŸ™‚ Ahh vacations are the best. I love the sunset picture. I love your bikini too…very cute.

12 Kellie June 10, 2010 at 11:43 pm

Relaxing vacations are the best. You feel so refreshed when you return to “normal” life.

13 danica June 10, 2010 at 11:50 pm

cute photo of you two at the end! This is so random, but my mom’s set of dishes were that same kind as your dad did the pork roast in. The blue with white speckles. πŸ™‚ I used them for my first college dorm too haha

I am really enjoying these vacation photos. It takes the phrase “living vicariously through…” to a whole new level πŸ™‚

20 Carolyn @ lovinlosing.com June 11, 2010 at 9:00 am

Ahhh! I need a vacation!

21 fitandfortysomething June 11, 2010 at 9:14 am

22 HappyWhenNotHungry June 11, 2010 at 9:14 am

It looks like you’re having an amazing vacation! Vacations that allow you to unwind and relax are the best ones! πŸ™‚

23 Kelly June 11, 2010 at 9:22 am

I love that you can bring the dogs to the beach. Haha it looks like Maddie is not enjoying the water very much.

24 missyrayn June 11, 2010 at 9:32 am

I love that you are enjoying the good food but making healthy choices wile doing so.

But please be sure to wear sunscreen. You look a little burnt in your cute polka dot bikini. As someone who had a melanoma scare I just want you to be careful especially since you are spending a lot of time in the sun.

25 Miranda @ Mirandasjeans June 11, 2010 at 10:10 am

Your vacation pictures make me feel like I am there on vaca too. It lets me escape the drab office I’m sitting in if only for a few minutes. Love it! Your vacation looks like it is very relaxing

26 Kristin June 11, 2010 at 11:27 am

AAAAA!!! The picture of the three pups running down the beach away from you is adorable!

27 Anne P June 11, 2010 at 12:51 pm

28 jody June 11, 2010 at 3:02 pm

29 Sana June 11, 2010 at 3:24 pm

Messy cupcakes are the best :)!
