Bachelorette Beach Weekend

I had so much fun at the beach for my bachlorette trip! First stop was Willa Jean in New Orleans for lunch, then we headed to Florida! While we were in the restaurant, our car got booted which was a minor set back haha. My girls threw me a little honeymoon shower the first night which was so sweet!

We did lots of lounging on the beach and Laura even got stung by a jellyfish…on the face! Haha we made a homemade remedy for her and it went away quickly. On our last day we took a trimaran sail boat out with Captin Kirk in Pensacola Bay! The water was pretty choppy which made for a wild and fun ride. We decided that we are going to do an annual girls trip! 🙂

spring break getaway

Tyler & I just got back from a week in Longboat Key, Florida (aka paradise)!! I’m soo glad we missed the blizzard in Colorado. We stayed at his grandparents’ adorable beach bungalow. They are seriously the sweetest for having us! Their backyard is literally a tropical oasis full of palms, beautiful exotic flowers, and an awesome pool–where we spent a lot of time chilling. It’s also right down the street from the beach so we would ride bikes to and from every day, multiple times a day! We forgot how much we love riding bikes together so we are both going to get ours tuned up asap! I desperately needed some salt water therapy & vitamin D in my life and I got my fix! We were able to totally relax, let go, and be in an island state of mind for an entire week. One day we paddle boarded in the ocean which was so much fun! I even busted out a few yoga moves on the board which was challenging but so so cool. It’s probably the most relaxing thing ever to just lay on the paddle board with your eyes closed as the ocean rocks you. The weather really couldn’t have been any nicer! Every day was sunny and warm with a cooling ocean breeze. The beach is where I’m totally in my element. One night we went down to the beach with Tyler’s whole family with our drinks and played bocce ball as the sun set, it was wonderful. We really only had one overcast day and that happened to be the day after Ty dislocated his shoulder body surfing soo we caught up on Better Call Saul and laid out by the pool that day for him to recover. We had lots of fresh seafood and fruit–two of my favorite food groups! Tyler took me out for a date night just us two one night at this awesome restaurant on the water, conveniently across the street from his grandparents’ house. It was such a fabulous getaway! If you can’t tell by my pics, I’m obsessed with high necklines right now–dresses, tops, bikinis, etc.
On another note, I found out that I lost one of my greatest friends the day we left for Longboat Key. It’s been very hard but I am learning to turn my grief into gratitude. Rest in peace Tevis. You will never be forgotten.
