I love the south.

I could totally live there.

I love that everyone is so friendly ~ “How y’all doin’?” or “Where y’all from?”

I love the slower pace. The {country} roads. The sweet tea. Bruster’s Ice Cream. Dunkin’ Donuts coffee.

I love that some of our favorite neighbors from Nor Cal now live 10 minutes from my in-laws and we were able to get together for a couple play dates AND a mamas night out!

{they may have not all been smiling…ahem, Holden, but at least they were all looking semi towards the camera}

I love that there was a Naartjie outlet in Myrtle Beach.

I love that the water in the Atlantic is warm.

I love that we could start out at the beach and then when we got tired of the sand, we could walk across the street, shower off and jump into the resort pool.

I love that Jay and U-Rod took the kids to putt putt {mini golf} one afternoon while I got caught up with Bravo and Pregnant In Heels.

I love that we got to see some fireflies.

I love that we were able to celebrate Lolo’s 75th birthday with him.

I love that the kids got to spend quality time with their paternal grandparents.

{mommy said they had to share an icee, but Lola said they could get their own}

I love shrimp & grits.

Making this soon!


THANK YOU Lolo & Lola for making this beautiful summer vacation a reality for us. We loved every minute of it and we can’t wait to see you again in October!


We discovered Bruster’s Ice Cream this evening…

Sooo glad these don’t exist in our neck o the woods. I would be there daily…they have some incredible flavors.

So long Baskin-Robbins.

I’ve discovered 31 new flavors!

{If you’re under 40″, you get a FREE kiddie cone with rainbow sprinkle hair, two little eyes and a mouth ~ this is Purple Dinosaur which is just vanilla taken up several notches on the color wheel!}

The ice cream was to-die-for.

They have Coconut Chip.

‘Nuf said.


In this weather you need to eat quick.

Drip. Drip. Drip.

We went through {lots} of napkins.
