I’m so happy that everyone is enjoying hearing my cruise recaps! It’s so much fun to write about all the places we visited, it makes me want to go back so bad! We are enjoying getting back into our routines though. One thing that I missed desperately while cruising around the Mediterranean?
My Kombucha fix. I can’t put into words how excited I was to sip this little treat. I was a happy girl!
Another thing that I missed while we were gone?
My family!!! Don’t get me wrong, I love Bobby’s family like my own, and I couldn’t ask for better in-law, but I missed my mom, Nana, and my brothers almost as much as I missed my Kombucha (
sort of kidding)!
Bobby was away for work and the sun was shining, so on Thursday, I packed a bag and headed down to the shore for some family time! It was a perfect day!
I spent most of the afternoon with my mom and Nana lounging around Nana’s pool while I filled them in on all the details of our trip.
After a lazy afternoon in the sun, I knew I wanted to get in a workout before dinner. It was extremely hot and humid outside, so running was out of the question. I decided to tackle an Insanity workout.
So here’s the thing… my brother started doing Insanity a few months ago, and he loves it. The first time he did it, though… he threw up.
Have I been giving him a hard time about this little fact ever since my mom spilled this gem of a secret to me?
You bet I have.
He’s my brother. I haven’t let him live it down. So when he urged me to give the workout a try, I took it as a challenge. Start with the warm-up DVD? Nah. I wanted the full on Shaun T. experience.
Guys, Insanity is no joke.
Did I throw up? No…. but I almost did.
Anyway, after nearly killing myself with this workout (but convincing my brother that it was a piece of cake for me )and a much-needed shower, we decided to go to our favorite summertime restaurant…. Boondocks (the same place Bobby threw my surprise 30th birthday)!
It was a beautiful, hot night… perfect for eating some lobsters and drinking chilled wine on the water!
When we got home from dinner, the night continued when Nana broke open the Limoncello that I brought back from Italy…
I’ve told you before, and I’ll say it again… my Nana knows how to party. Around 1:30 a.m. we finally corked the Limoncello and put ourselves to bed. It was a perfect night!
As for today… I’m so excited because Bobby and I are celebrating our anniversary! Yes, it really was two weeks ago, and we had an amazing dinner in Barcelona to celebrate, but we decided it would be nice to celebrate it when we aren’t running on an hour of sleep.
We’ve got gifts to exchange, our wedding album to look at for the first time (!!!), a delicious dinner planned, and of course… our wedding cake to eat!
Enjoy your Saturday!
