After being away for 10 days (Seattle —> Oregon), the start of this week has been a bit hectic with regard to catching up on work, life, and everything else. I’ve basically been glued to my laptop and running around like a chicken with its head cut off. Blahhhh.
So, when Mal came home (he was golfing) with Quinn yesterday afternoon and told me to throw on my bathing suit because we were going to the beach, I was instantly in a better mood! Well, sort of. I resisted a little bit because I still had more work to do, but my boys were persistent, and there’s no way I could turn down quality time with them. Plus, they’re cute and it was 90+ degrees outside, and the last place I wanted to be was sweating in my office! To the beach we went!
And, my gosh, I’m glad we did. The three of us really had the best time. Duxbury Beach in the evening is so nice – much less crowded and so beautiful. I’m glad we just packed up and went and didn’t waffle on the idea.
How adorable is this tiny “worm-maid”?
At the beach, I enjoyed a can of Archer Roose Chardonnay, which was quite tasty and perfect for summer. The brand sent me some samples to try awhile back, and I’ve enjoyed them very much, especially the Sauvignon Blanc, which is much better than other canned wines I’ve tried!
On the way down to Duxbury, we picked up a pizza for dinner.
I try not to each too much gluten, so I only had a couple of bites of pizza, but packed a throw-together salad from home for dinner. I felt a little derp-y eating salad on the beach, but, hey, living a healthy, balanced lifestyle is all about making choices that make you feel your best – and sometimes that means missing out on pizza and eating a salad on the beach (with some wine)!
Dessert was (one million) cherries!
All in all, it was a wonderful impromptu trip to the beach, and I can’t wait to do it again! I definitely see more beach nights in our future!
