Favorite Things Friday & Beaches on the Brain

I have beaches on the brain this week...you may have noticed from my new header...

I change that every so often; sorry if it threw you off.

My parents are celebrating their 27th wedding anniversary this month.  They are so old! I'm just kidding Mom and Dad.

I am so glad you have a marriage I can look to for an example. Thanks for that by the way :)

Also, as you celebrate by taking a much deserved vacation, I hope you see lots of these:


And these:

And do some of this:

And this:

And pick up some of these:
And if it rains, I hope you won't let it make you sad, and do some of this:


And see this:

And some of these:

And for Dad, some golfing.

And for Mom, some shopping.

And Mom, don't worry about me, I'll be okay if I don't talk to you everyday...I guess. :)



Hawaii is one of my favorite places...what are some of yours?

Also, go check out my guest post on Aly & Ash today where I list some of my favorite things!

Thanks for sharing your favorite things with us this week!

I've got beaches on the brain too!!! :) We're headed to Pensacola in a few weeks, and staying on the beach- woot! Then, my hubby & I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary in Kauia in the fall!! So far, my fave tropical place has been Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Stayed at a resort, and had such an amazingly awesome time. Those pictures you posted pretty much are what it looked like there. :)

Thanks for hosting!

Jessica, please congratulate your parents from us! How wonderful to be celebrating 27 years! Our parents are up to 40!

Funny you should mention Hawaii-I just posted a picture on my blog of my son looking at Waikiki beach from our hotel room from our holiday there last year! We LOVE Hawaii!

Thanks for having us again for Friday favourites too!

Best wishes,
Natasha, Stacey and Holly.
