Beach Me

The beach trip with the family was ah-mazing. A whole week of togetherness, relaxation, fun and good times. And we didn’t even get tired of each other – I don’t think. 🙂

We stayed in a house in Miramar Beach (just east of Destin and before Sandestin). It’s in a neighborhood called Frangista Beach. We used to drive by it when Josh and I were little and we’d stare at the big houses and think “that must be where the rich people stay.” Ha. While we are certainly not, our foursome was a sixsome this trip and we needed more room! The “Happy Go Lucky” was perfect and I want to live there forever.


There were porches for sitting and catching up and drinking coffee and I miss the “Happy Go Lucky” house already.


Here is a photo overload for you – and all of my iPhone photos can be seen here:


My sweet parents – about to smooch.


We celebrated my birthday a little early while we were all together. Donut Hole doughnuts – way better than cake!



We had my birthday dinner in Baytowne Wharf at Acme Oyster House.


And topped it with a Fat Tuesday daiquiri.


Dewey Destin – so tiny and such a great hole in the wall dive seafood joint. We watched a mama dolphin and baby dolphin frolic after dinner.


Check out the rain wall moving in. So cool.



Our view when we stepped on the boardwalk to head down to the beach. I miss it!

Rinsing the sand off or doing the “Stanky Leg” – who knows.

I’ve been doing that for years – apparently.


My supermodel brother and sister-in-law.

Me and my main squeeze – and my birthday dress from my Mom and Dad! Mom had some help from her personal shopper, Ashley. 🙂

And then we had a thirsty Thursday. Things happened – like this.

We may not be right, but they’re my family and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.


Can’t wait for the next Wade beach vacay! Family is a blessing –and it’s even a bigger blessing when you actually enjoy being around them. Mine is the best. Truth.

  1. Oh, man, Jenn. Thanks so much for posting these photos!

    They’ve helped allow me to have a “virtual vacation,” which is something I’ve become far too familiar with. Well, maybe one of these days I’ll make it big and take a half-dozen vacations a year to make up for all the years I didn’t.

    And the beach and water looked beautiful — so clean and clear! And of course the brunette chick looked hotter than ever. Wowzer. How come you’re not on the front of some best-selling CD?!

  2. Thanks Jenn for a wonderful post. Pictures are great and you do have one of the best families, maybe because part of it’s mine. Keep your posts coming so enjoy reading!
