Weekend Recap // Private Beaches

This weekend will go down in the books as one of the best I've had since moving out to Pensacola Beach! It was filled with all of my favorite things!

Saturday morning me and Ethan woke up late and leisurely enjoyed some coffee out on the balcony.

After a quick run to Subway, we packed up our beach towels and chairs on the wave runner and headed out to find a little slice of private beach for just us.  We ended up near Fort Pickens and enjoyed some beach time just me and him.

 Once my hubs got sick of beachin' it, we headed back to shore and I spent the rest of the afternoon lounging by the pool.

Since before we got married (four years ago) I've promised Ethan I'd go golfing with him.  Since my friend Taylor's husband was home and he golfs too, we finally made good on that promise. I'm so glad we did too, because it was so much fun and such a gorgeous afternoon for 9 holes!

{Funny random story, it was 100* at our wedding at Scenic Hills and Taylor's dad Steven reminds me of this every June 12th, so when my "Share a Coke with" said Steve, we had to send him this pic to help him "cool off" for next time he's at Scenic Hills}

We ended the night eating dinner at Applebee's and heading back home. Sunday morning we planned to go to church, but ended up staying home because we had company coming over around 2 and were afraid the holiday traffic mixed with normal summer traffic would make it impossible to get home.  We ran by Walmart, got lunch and beach stuff, and headed home to get the wave runner ready and everything for our beach day with friends.

My weekend was picture perfect and I'm so sad it went by so fast. I wish every weekend could have as wonderful sunshiney weather as we had! It was literally perfect and I have the tan lines to prove it!
