Heaven is only 6 hours away

No....no I did not start writing country music. But I did visit Florida this past weekend...Destin, Florida to be exact which we might as well just call Heaven. 

Sand that looks like sugar...and squeeks when you walk on it 
Water so clear you can walk out to your waist, look down and still see your toesies 
And hot delicious sun that warms your body to your very soul 

Perfection I tell you...

Our 5am departure. These girls were troopers!

Florida!
The whole gang

This picture was taken about 20 minutes after arriving in Destin. We went straight to the beach...well Danielle went straight to the blender and THEN the beach...I told you the sun was hot! 

Could NOT get over how beautiful the water was...this was taken on my morning run

and the food #getinmybelly you lovely oysters 

Night one out with my girls and roomies 

biffs....true story 

Nights on the beach are the best....so are photobombs

Day 2 we hit the beach with a vengeance....and sequins..and bandeau top tanlines 

I tried paddleboarding for the first time......(love that Whitney was my little cheering squad the first time I stood up.....felt like a baby taking her first steps).

but don't be fooled....this is how I spent the majority of my time paddleboarding 


and concluded the night with a fun dinner out

and a huge giant chair

I'd say I'm a pretty blessed girl....don't you agree?

Sunday was the day we had to say goodbye to a rainy Destin....and the day I decided to wear a pajama top as a real top

Deuces Destin

This girl WILL be back...to play in your squeaky sand 

XO, A

What an awesome adventure.
I'm so glad I finally know another girl that likes oysters. All my friends think I'm weird when I order an oyster sampler and a glass of wine for dinner. SO GOOD!!

I was just in that giant chair a few weeks ago! Isn't Destin the best? And I love those paddle board pictures :)

I love your wardrobe. And if I lived in the south and had your body, I'd totally steal all of your clothes. Know that.

But since I live in the north and I'm currently +20lbs with a child in me, I'll let you keep them.

See how nice I am?
