Beach Weekend

Good Morning! Happy Friday! I am waking up at the beach after driving here late last night. After I went home yesterday from work I sat on the couch and read some blogs for awhile. After 45 minutes of doing that I figured it's now or never for my run.  Ya know those days you have zero motivation and don't want to get off the couch? That was me yesterday and the only reason I got off the couch was because I didn't think I would be doing much this morning (which has been correct so far.)

My 5 mile run yesterday was torturous just about the entire time. I just couldn't find a pace or a rhythm or a good song to get me going. I did get through it and was glad when it's over. I just kept repeating the mantra, "You'll never regret a workout, just one you've missed." It slightly helped.

After Danny got home we had some leftovers for dinner and I made some hummus and bread to take to the beach. No one has been down here in awhile so I knew there would be no food really in the house. I brought a bunch of fruits and veges and coffee pot and juicer to hold me over until we actually get to a food store. 

In other news, we bought a tomato plant, I don't know if it will grow by us...but we are attempting it!
Here is an updated picture of our basil...not much change, but it is growing.

Danny's parents are coming here until Saturday, so we are staying in the master suite. 
Nice big bed, balcony.... nice.
I woke up this morning to the sun and the waves. 
We went for a walk on the beach too.
How gorgeous is it? It's actually gotten colder since this morning because the wind picked up. 

This is more of a photo post because I'm headed to the beach to do some important reading.  Have a wonderful weekend in the sun!

Hi! I'm new to your blog. Where are you vacationing? I'm guess the East-Coast by the looks of the photos. I've never been to the eastern shorline, but really want to make a trip out there sometime. Take care & have fun!
