I'm In Love

With the beach. I thought it was official before, but now I'm certain. =)

We spent the whole weekend with our friends Mrs. C and her hubby (also named Joe). Yesterday afternoon, we headed to the beach and parked it in the sun for a while! It was fantastic. Pretty sure I could have stayed there all day reading, giggling with the hubby, and watching [and listening to] the waves roll in. *swoon* Not exactly sure what the name of the beach is, but it's really close to Mrs. C's house which is super handy for them. =P But, we could see the Honolulu skyline from the beach, which was pretty cool.

Here are a few pictures from the beach.

Ah, the beach. *swoon*

Toes in the sand, a book in my hand - I'm a happy girl. =)

My Joe trying to put his towel down on the sand, but with the crazy wind, it wasn't going so well. Had to get a shot of that! ;-)

Viola! Mission accomplished! =)

What? You thought only women did this? Nope!

So, after our wondermous afternoon on the beach, I got some great news!!! My bestie is definitely coming to Hawaii for my birthday in July!!!! =D She booked her tickets while we were talking this afternoon [via Skype, of course] and I am super, super excited!!! If Joe has to be gone on my birthday [and let's face it, there's no other option], then I'm glad I get some bestie time. =) I mean, yeah, I'd rather spend it with my hubby but since I don't get a say in the matter the next best choice is Melissa. So, yay! We'll get in some crafty time, definitely lots of beach time, and maybe a little bit of sight-seeing. I can't wait! {Ok, well, I kinda can since Joe won't be here, but you get the idea...right?} Maybe with a little bit of bestie time I can make it through the first part of the D word.

I'm also thinking of making a list of things that I should want need to do while Joe's gone. Any ideas/suggestions would be great! 

Hope you've had a great Monday!

So I'm going to have to stop reading your blog if you don't stop posting all these beautiful pictures of you at the beach. I'm becoming too jealous and it's difficult for me to work!

Hope you're having a great Tuesday!

New follower here! Just thought I would leave some love for ya and say that I absolutely love Hawaii!! I really want to PCS there but I highly doubt we will because of the job my husband has. I love all the pictures and I'm super jealous! haha

I'm glad that you will get to spend some time with your best friend even if the hubs will be gone. While Mr. M was gone, I was in school which kept me super busy if you were interested in that or maybe enhance a skill you don't really have (like cooking, playing music, etc). Hope that helps and please check out my blog if you have time! =)

"Not exactly sure what the name of the beach is..." That's okay, it's probably 15 syllables long and it wouldn't make sense to us anyway ;) I am so jealous of you right now! We're eyeing our complex's public pool like it's manna from heaven in this 80% humidity. And yes, SoldierMan likes to lay out and read, too. I love those times. :)

You were right. I am more jealous now that I've seen pictures!!

"My sister in law read this book when she was pregnant and followed it. =) By the time my niece was 8 weeks old, she was sleeping through the night. How many parents (who do on demand feeding) can say that?! I have never seen a happier, calmer baby in my life. Some of that may just be her personality, but when she's off her routine she gets cranky and fussy. There's much to be said for routine. I'm not a parent, but when I DO become a parent you can bet that I'll be reading this book. =)"

Thanks for the comment! I am so glad to hear it worked well for her! You should be good to go when you are a mom, lots of people to ask advice from! :) Definitely read the book, it's very helpful!

It's been almost a year since I vacationed in Hawaii and I totally fell in love. Your beautiful pictures take me back and I couldn't agree more: there's nothing more perfect than a book in hand and toes in the sand :) Hope you're enjoying every minute.

I'm sorry your hubby has to skip town for a bit but hope you enjoy some quality time with your bestie!
