Weekend Wrap-Up...Tuesday Edition

Happy Tuesday Ladies!
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!  I can tell you that it was SO nice to not have to set any alarms for this morning, and to have all the backpacks and lunchboxes put away for a while!
I had mentioned last week that Mark and I were heading out of town over the holiday weekend for a little R&R...kid free!  It has been a while since we have gone away for the weekend and been away from the kids, and the kids were just as excited that we were leaving as we were! 
It was so nice to have the alarms shut off Thursday night!  Mark took Friday off, and since we were only going about an hour away from home, we didn't need to get up super early!  We got up Friday morning, spent some time with the kiddos and then headed out around 10:30, I had called early that morning to see about early check in and they told me the room would be ready by noon.... AWESOME!  We hit up Dunkin Donuts and headed straight to the beach!
We arrived just before noon, we were going with one of Mark's co-workers, and she was there waiting on us!  We got up into our room, dropped our bags and headed to the pool!
It was so great to just spend the day poolside, relaxing with a cold drink in our hand!
This was our little beach, and it was perfect and very private...it was AWESOME!

Inside my Yeti was the most delicious tropical drink from Seagrams...they were so yummy!

After a few hours by the pool, we came back up to our condo and had a few snacks and a glass of wine....seriously it was just the perfect first day of our little getaway!

Our views were pure perfection!
Friday night Mark and I went to dinner and went to a little bar/restaurant at the resort, and had a yummy dessert and I had the best pineapple coconut mojito...probably the best drink I have ever had! 
All week long I was battling a headache, and Saturday morning I woke up feeling miserable, I had the worst tension headache coming from my neck, so before we even attempted to do anything for the day, I found a place that offered a mini neck/shoulder massage.
It did the trick, and I felt a million times better!
I got back shortly before lunch, and we packed up our cooler and headed out for an afternoon of beach and pool.
It was so peaceful sitting on the beach, watching the dolphins jump around...LOVED it so much!
I was pretty excited when I realized my Yeti also kept my Seagrams bottles cold!

We had the BEST time!
Saturday night we had dinner at one of the hotel restaurants, and it was super yummy...and I once again had to have that delicious mojito!
After dinner we walked around the property, walked out onto the pier and just enjoyed the beauty all around us!

It was all so pretty! 
We ended the night out on our balcony, another perfect day!
No secret Mark LOVES to cook, and each morning he made a delicious breakfast...I am so lucky to be his wife...he is just the BEST!

And as I was drinking my coffee, I saw this pretty little rainbow!
We spent Sunday at the pool all day long!  The weather was PERFECT all weekend!
Sunday night we were tired...even though we didn't do much all weekend, being out in that hot sun just wipes us out!  We ordered take out, ate in our room, and watch the NASCAR race...it really was the perfect way to end our weekend away!

The sunset from our balcony was gorgeous!
Monday morning we got up, cleaned up the room, got all our stuff together and were out the door by 10!  It was so nice to only have an hour drive home!
We had the absolute best time, but it was so nice to get home to our kids!  We love our kids and love being parents, but it is so important to give yourself a break, get away, focus on your marriage, and just enjoy each other! 
We absolutely LOVED the resort we stayed at, we loved it so much that we booked it again for Labor Day weekend...and the kids and my mom will be coming too...we can't wait!
Hope you guys have a great Tuesday!  Today I am planning on catching up on all the laundry and cleaning my kitchen!
