Weekend Recap

It may be September, but it sure doesn't feel like it in VB.  Yet as anxious as we are for fall & all the festiveness that comes with it, another weekend of warm weather was welcomed.  We took advantage and pretty much stayed outside.  The entire time.
 
 
You know the saying ... "absence makes the heart grow fonder."  A week back at work, and I seriously could not WAIT for an entire weekend to do nothing but be with this girl. 

 
 
 
She is lucky I did not just eat her right up.  Instead, we opted for lunch & a girls date at the farmers market with my mom & sister.  Beautiful weather, local food, & my favorite girls made for a pretty perfect Saturday.

 


On Sunday, we woke up extra early to get packed & ready for a day at the beach.  It was a big first for Waverly Maye, her first official boat ride. 


Our friends were sweet enough to let us tag along on their boat.  We used to have one of our own, but sold it to have enough of a down payment for our house.  Gotta do what you gotta do!  It was totally worth it & we hope to find a replacement ... one day.

So although Waverly Maye should be a seasoned pro after many days on the water when she was in my belly (not much else to do when you are ten months pregnant & ready to pop), this was her first time in real life.  You know, actually wearing her asymmetrical swimsuit & matching black headband.

 
Of course our outdoor-loving, complete beach baby loved every minute.  The boat ride brought us straight to this little paradise, and I obviously considered selling that new house and building a tent right on this sand. 



 
Something tells me these two would have no problem with that plan.  I tell ya, this little lady is totally her father's daughter.


And she makes her momma melt.  How is it possible that I become more obsessed with her everyday?  I knew that I would love having a little girl, but had no idea how much.  She is just the best.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, 5 more days until we get to do it all over again! :)
XOXO

  1. Oh my goodness, you make me want to move to the beach. Sometimes I miss the sand and salt water so so much. Miss W is too cute in that suit too! I could just eat her up!

  2. So true, not sure how it's possible to become more and more obsessed with our little ones each day! Love the splash picture with her Daddy :)

    Glad you all had a great weekend, enjoy all the summer days because I have a feeling VA will get nailed with snow this Winter! And I'm ok with that, as long as we can hit the Bahamas for a quick getaway ;)

  8. That scoop back tee is redonk! And a day on a boat sounds amazing! We sold ours this summer, partly due to us not using it as much as we used to and partly in attempt to cut out some things we don't really "need." Whatever the reason, I do miss our days out on the lake!
