I miss the beach.

Yep. I've got a list a mile long of posts that are overdue.

Like, for example, posts about our house. That we have now owned since March.

Oops.

Does anyone know the secret to slowing life down...even just a smidgen?

Well. I had a FANTASTIC time celebrating one of my bestie's bachelorette parties in Ft. Myers, Florida a week and a half ago.

Aside from the actual bachelorette night, no planning was involved. We slept in. Did whatever we wanted. Laughed. Lounged. Got a little crazy. And let me tell you, that is a way to "plan" a vacation. Have no plans at all.

But I digress.

So many highlights of the trip.

1. The most annoying bugs I've ever encountered in my entire life: No-See-Ems. Because you can't see em'...although you really can. We all left with these rascal-ly bites all over our bodies. (Yes this was a highlight - because it just got funny after awhile).

2. Our $2.00 inter tubes we bought at Target. These things were the lifeblood of our trip. And we looked so awesome walking around the beach with our matching floaties.

3. Homemade sangria. We bought ingredients to make a ton the first night. Well, we had to make a couple of grocery store runs every day after that in order to replenish because we somehow drank it all . It was hot out and we were thirsty. ;)

4. Everything about Sanibel Island. The beaches. The shelling. The Mucky Duck and it's perfect location to watch a sunset.

5. Making fools of ourselves the night we celebrated our bride-to-be. We made quite the spectacle as we wore ridiculous, bright-colored wigs out and about and sported blinking bling-rings.

We.had.a.blast.

Looks so fun! I go to Fort Myers Beach every year and when we go down, we try to get to Sanibel at least once. We always go to Cheeburger Cheeburger to get milkshakes!
Oh, and no-see-ums are SO annoying, ahhh!!

Looking at your pictures makes me feel so envious. I mean, you guys really had fun there. That does it! For my next vacation, I'll definitely go to the beach.
