I Made It...

... to the beach!

Thankfully I was able to fit [mostly] everything in my Vera Bradley bag, thanks to this ingenious car bar that I bought to transport clothes to and from school. It's so handy... you don't have to deal with folding and unfolding and making stuff fit in a suitcase. Just take clothes out of the car and right into your closet!

This was only a small portion of the hanging clothes I brought... 
you don't even want to see how many I ended up bringing!

Best $15 I ever spent... you can get one here. Totally worth it. 

Anyways, we got the keys to the house around 4 and I spent the next couple of hours unpacking...

Love the room - it's very sunny!

... and getting everything organized and in its proper place. I even remembered to pack my Lily wine glass, which will be making an appearance later in the week (along with a fun drink recipe!)


The rest of the afternoon was spent biking, enjoying my family, and doing some damage at the grocery store..


Um, talk about junk food! This photo contains all of my weaknesses... Diet Coke.. chocolate covered raisins... Reese's Puffs... TOASTER STRUDELS!!

I am usually a very healthy eater, but on vacation I think it's more than okay to splurge. When I'm at the beach, I want to enjoy what I eat and not think too much about calories or what's "healthy" or "unhealthy". If I want a burger and sweet potato fries, by golly, I'm going to get a burger and sweet potato fries. And maybe even a peanut butter ice cream sundae.

Okay, this was definitely supposed to be a short post, but I have ONE more thing to share with you guys.

My new phone cover came in!



The case was a little thinner than I was expecting, but overall I'm very pleased with it! The colors are vibrant and I love the monogramming. Even though it's not very thick, it's still sturdy and will help protect my little phone (because my phones have always had a "jumping" habit... they always seem to just jump out of my hands... onto hard floors).

If you're thinking of getting a cover.. you should definitely order from Abigail Lee! There's plenty of color combinations and patterns to choose from.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend! :)

Love,
Cait
