Hot as Hell – not just in hot yoga this morning where I thought I might actually pass out, but also in Atlanta – anywhere in Atlanta. The humidity is such that you sweat as soon as you leave the house and the temperature is 94 degrees Fahrenheit. I need no reminder that I live in the deep South. We’re off to a pool party soon so I think some very icy white wine may be in order – it is Friday after all!
This place is amazing. It’s one of those vacations where everything falls in to place, almost.
The kids have been jumping the surf at 8am each morning, and MM and I have managed to get a couple of beach runs in to burn off the calories from the excesses of each evening. Yes, we’ve even managed to light the charcoal grill:) Nothing better than burgers with Prosecco!
My afternoon margaritas have been cunningly disguised in my coffee cup.
The house, fortunately, is perfect – basic, but right on the beach. It’s amazing how easy the day becomes when you don’t have to pack bags and food for a day at the beach. Not to mention we can all chill out away from the sun when we feel like it. The only thing we’re missing are the dogs – they don’t deal well with the heat – I hope they are behaving for the house sitter!
I’ve been relishing living in bikinis, shorts and t-shirts. I packed light, and living with a capsule wardrobe is fabulously freeing. No decisions to make except choosing which shorts are clean.
Shorts – JCrew selvedge shorts (old – similar here) // t-shirt – Target // hat – Target
Of course we can never go away without drama. Poor Poppy managed to get half the deck in her foot on Sunday evening. I tried removing the splinter but she was obviously in pain. Monday morning we headed to Urgent Care. The poor wee thing had to have a huge needle in her foot for anesthetic then the Dr. had to use a scalpel to remove it – it was embedded in her foot so deeply! I held on to her for dear life – I never want to hear screams of pain like that again. I was in tears and shaking – and I wasn’t even going through the pain!! She was an absolute star and once it was all over all she was concerned about was the color of her bandage. I think she is feeling quite the hero now.
