Memorial Day Weekend 2012 (Part II)

So we headed up to the beach yesterday...though it was a little chilly at first, it turned into the most comfortable beach day...so much so we all got scorched without knowing it!










We then drove up the coast to Portsmouth and checked into our favorite hotel in the area- The Sheraton Harborside Portsmouth and snagged one of their AWESOME townhouses

Great views!



and then we had an AWESOME dinner at one of our fave places there called The Blue Mermaid :)












This morning, I saw a beautiful sunrise...and then enjoyed some more of "Mr. Grey" while drinking some coffee on our viranda...priceless

and while the "big kids" were still sleeping, we took a walk uptown and enjoyed the scenery and hit Popovers on the Square...they certainly lived up to their name!




Before checking out, we hit the pool


Life IS Good :)

Memorial Day Weekend 2012 (PART I)

Memorial Day Weekend...The Official Beginning of Summer...One of my FAVORITE weekends all year!

We started by surprising Daddy at his gig at The Black Water Grill on Friday Night...great time :)








After the gig, the kiddos enjoyed some of my Pinterest Success Recipes!

Ocean Inspired Cupcakes...Blue for the Ocean and Brown for the Sand ;)







and the Patriotic Strawberries of course :)

Saturday Morning it was time for a power walk....I love exercising outside again!  After that, I headed to my hair appointment only to find that Bella Viaggio did not have power SO Claribel came over to do my hair!  She is the GREATEST! 

Later on, it was time for ANOTHER power walk...this time at The Rail Trail with the kiddos :)






and then a trip to Griffin to watch Zach and Aaron play basketball and hit the swings of course!



and Dr. Monk Breton returns as Mummy and Daddy CRASH!

Supper meant cooking on the grill and some more festive sides and desserts...
Red, White and Blue Warm Potato Salad

and my Caprese Salad of course (with the basil we are growing on our deck!)

and some Watermelon Stars and Patriotic Jello Gigglers!



Pinterest has me even MORE over the top ;)
I have been so inspired to get festive and the fam seems to be enjoying the treats this weekend...stay tuned for more fun!

Oh yeah...and don't you love my toes? ;)
