1st Beach Weekend of the Year

It was one of those weekends that was absolutely wonderful!
Saturday I helped celebrate the upcoming birth of a sweet friend's miracle baby! I couldn't be more excited for Leslee and can't wait to finally see her as a mother! Her baby girl Landree got so many beautiful and thoughtful presents!

After the baby shower, I headed to my parent's house for some grilled bacon-wrapped deer meat! Dad finally got himself a deer during hunting season and I immediately capitalized on his game! ;)
Sunday Ethan and I met our friends Taylor and Colin at 5 Guys for some super yummy burgers! It was only my 2nd time going and I really feel like I've been missing out in life! Ha! Afterwards we all headed out to the beach to meet up with some other friends to let the dogs run on the beach. The weather on Sunday was just too gorgeous to sit inside for anything!

Basically, to be friends with us.. you have to be a member of the BDC. Black Dog Club. Ethan and I have thrown around the idea of a black/brown Lab or Rottweiler to be exclusive members of the club. Haha!

After sufficiently wearing out the pups, we all headed over to Shaggy's to grab some dinner! Shaggy's is one of two dog friendly restaurants on Pensacola Beach! Next time we'll have to eat at Flounder's {the other dog friendly restaurant}! The food was delicious and the margaritas were only a $1 thanks to National Margarita Day! I even joined in on the fun and had a virgin margarita.. aka a limeade!

It was SO nice being in our "neck of the woods" with friends for a chance! After dinner Ethan and I were able to walk home! Normally it's a good 30 minute drive home! We watched a little bit of the Oscars and then went to bed early! Preggo can't handle staying up late after going all day without a nap! Ha!
Now it's Monday morning and officially "we find out what baby is this week" week and I couldn't be more excited! I'm over here making lists on top of lists on top of lists for stuff we need to do and get done! Eek! Hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend and I'll see you around this week!
