Our Anniversary trip to Destin, FL was unlike any other beach trip either of us have experienced! We both frequented this beach in high school and college, so you could say we have both done our share of partying in Destin!
Well this trip...
... instead of sipping on a yummy Irish Wake at McGuires, I had the yummy Water :)
... instead of hitting up the bar scene and having a few cocktails, we went bowling and putt putting!
... instead of staying up until the wee hours of the morning, we were in bed by midnight almost every night (except one where we stayed up til 1:00 watching Baby Mama)
... instead of pounding beers on the beautiful sandy beaches, I killed some Dr Pepper and read some of the best gossip magazines around!
The trip was a success! No rain, only beautiful, perfect weather! We had an absolute blast! We got up every morning and had breakfast then hit the beach! We would stay on the beach watching all the kiddies play (we were at a hotel that seemed to be more for families than spring breakers) for hours then head to the room to shower and go out for some yummy food!
I had some of the BEST fried shrimp I have ever had in my life at AJ's. Now let me tell you that I have spent many a nights at AJ's doing things other than eating! After hours, AJ's turns into one of the most popular bars in Destin. It's an open area bar that overlooks the ocean. It's so cool. They have the coolest bands and karaoke. But this trip, we opted not to stick around to see how wild and crazy it got. Those days for us are over (or at least few and far between)! I was honestly scared that Hubs might get bored. He is used to so much excitement at the beach when we would go with groups. But we both thoroughly enjoyed being alone and being relaxed and not having anything we HAD to do! WE talked about Beanie and tried to come up with some girl names (we are settled on boy names but we are struggling with girl names)! It was just such a nice trip.
I am sorry to say I don't have tons of pics. It's tough to take them when it's just the two of you! But we got a few! So I present you with our 1st Anniversary pics :)
PS-I haven't shown you lovely ladies a belly pic yet because there's not much to show. Right now, I just look like I have put on a few pounds :) I promise to post some in the next couple of weeks! I want to look pregnant when I post them, not just like I've gained some poundage in the midsection :) I will tell you though that my pants are getting tighter so that means I (and Beanie) are growing! YAY!
Also I want to point out that the shirts I am wearing in these pics aren't maternity shirts. They are just shirts from last season that happen to be great for the beach and lots of eating (i.e. bloating!). :) I have bought ZERO maternity clothes but it's coming, really soon! :)
One of the HUGE fish at the Bass Pro Shops aquarium! He loved me! He kept trying to kiss me!
Hubs coming back from the ocean!
Me and my best golf pose :) i really look pregnant here. I swear I am not showing yet!
Putt Putt! This is my serious/focused face!
Me, making sure I didn't look pregnant (although I know I am, I am not showing and I didn't want to look like this shirt was a pregnancy shirt) Weird, yes I know!
Our first night out! :) Heading to McGuires YUM!
