Weekend routine

If you follow my teacher's blog, you know that I've been back to school already. Well, during the week, I barely have time to breathe. You know what it's like, chaotic. But I love it. I get to rummage through all those ideas that I've found or bought and try to figure out HOW I'm going to fit it all in. 

Well, that means, that I'm back to making my weekends into a routine. Saturday's not really a routine. But we usually go to the pool, or do something fun. I can't always say it's as a family because my husband's schedule doesn't always allow for that, but we do what we can. 

Yesterday, we went to the pool with some friends, and then we came home and played in the backyard, where I got just hang with my girls...

and Pete. He's so pretty, isn't he??? He's about 10 years old though, and for big dogs, that's pretty old.

And Sundays are reserved for beach days and school planning. In the mornings, we go to the beach with some friends...ok. I just have to say. I don't know WHERE else I would ever live. I mean, I think I would be one depressed person if I couldn't go to the beach. Just looking outside and seeing the clear blue skies makes me want to be outside...but I have to be near the water. and pools are great, but there's something about the beach that just makes everything better.

When I was a kid, I remember being at the beach all the time, day and night. That's one thing I hope to pass on to my far so good.

I went to a new beach today. I pass it all the time to get to on of my other regular ones. I think I found my NEW beach. It's perfect. It has lifeguards (which I like because of my "no fear" girls), it has showers (again, for my sandmonster kids), and best of all?? It has a food shack! But it plays Jimmy Buffett music (LOVE) and it has some seriously yummy food with a really shaded area. I love it!

My girlfriend, that I usually go to the beach with, posted on her FB this morning with a hashtag of #saltwatertherapy

I love it. It's so true.  That's why this is one of my favorite sayings ever.
(p.s. that's MY picture..MY beach...and thank you to my talented friend for working her magic with the words! I'm totally turning this into a poster for my house!)

A BIG welcome cheer for the return of my weekend routine!!

Now...I must go plan for my week.


  1. So jealous of all the time you get to spend at the beach friend! Glad you are settling into your routine :)


  2. LOVE the beach!!! I feel the same way- not sure I could ever not live by a beach! Looks like you and your girls are having a blast! Enjoy every second!!! :)

  3. Where is this beach! It sounds amazing. I usually go to Paradise Beach across from Ichabods, but it gets so crowded.
