Beachbound


Beren and I are heading out of town this afternoon, going to the Keys for a nice long weekend..alone! It seems like forever since we've had any real time together, what with his girls being here for two solid weeks and every weekend in June. It was great having them but I am used to having every-other-weekend to ourselves and am really missing that couple time! You see, My Man works very long hours and even when he gets home from the office he is in "workmode" for the remainder of the day, doesn't really come back to himself until..oh, sometime Friday evening! This means that weekends are very important to me, to us, and I look forward to them big time!



I'm especially excited about this little getaway because it's somewhere we haven't stayed before, Fiesta Key, and something we haven't really done before: camping. Now, I am going to admit right here that I am not a camper, not in the traditional sense. I can't stand the heat, I prefer not to sleep on the ground and mosquitos and I do not get along! However, my dad owns a gorgeous 40-foot RV and has decided to park it at this lovely campground for a month and has invited us to make use of it any time we want! Isn't that lovely? Dad will be joining us there this evening to "show us the ropes" since we have no clue how to operate the mechanisms of the RV but after that he'll be heading home, leaving us to our devices.

This morning Beren packed up his car and hooked up the waverunner and our bikes, we'll be leaving this evening after work. I can't wait to get there and unwind, looking forward to a few days of fun in the sun!

FYI mosquitos don't like lavender. KissMyFace Filthy Rich Moisturizer with lavender has me mosquito bite free. :)

Have a great weekend!

I came back today from orlando, and had such a bad luck that every single day I stayed it rained pretty hard, hope you have better luck.
But amyway you can get in the water with rain, it is fun anyway.

Mariana, that is typical Florida weather for this time of year I'm afraid. We usually get nice sunny mornings, afternoon showers/storms and then a clear evening/night. Glad you had fun anyway! :)

Antgirl, thank you for the suggestion, I had no idea about the lavender! :)
