Under the Spring Break Sun

The last day of spring break is always bittersweet.  Bitter because it's over, and sweet because of all the fond memories made in it.

When I think spring break, I think tan, warm, and fun!

And for that very reason:

What's any warmth without a beach? One of my favorite things is getting some R&R on the shore, listening to the roaring waves, with the wind breezing in my face, while sipping an ice cold drink.  I miss that salt water scent that soaked up almost everything I took with me.  I loved the sand on this particular beach- it was more like tiny pebbles.

Speaking of beaches, here are some of my favorite quotes about them:

“Sponges grow in the ocean. That just 'gets' me. I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be if that didn't happen.” -Stephen Wright

“I dropped a tear in the ocean, and whenever they find it I'll stop loving you, only then.” -Anonymous

“The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears, or the sea.” -Isaac Denesin

After walking on these for a few days, my feet were softer than baby's feet!
First time I try Ting, a popular caribbean grapefruit soda- SO YUMMY!

Now that I'm back:  Shocked to find sand in my hair being beach free for 3 days!  And that big smile that was brought to my face when I reminisced (sort of) after discovering about a handful of sand in the emptied suitcases.

One of the many things I've been addicted to is tanning.  But, due to health precautions- I've forced myself to quit the booth- *tear*.  So I took advantage of the week off and got the most sun I can possibly absorb, for I function best when I'm in the deepest shade of caramel :)

The wrappies I had on the whole time
After I took them off, I was EXTATIC to see that I turned 8 (maybe even 10!) shades darker!

Now that I'm back: I realized/remembered that suntanning has a complement- peeling... UGH!

To me, having fun can be anything from riding rollercoasters, to eating McNuggets, to painting my nails.  So I had boat loads of fun indulging in delicious French bakeries filled with everything vintage.  My.Favorite.

I would buy this charming chandelier in a heartbeat if I ever found it retail.  So rustic!
An old cash register is always fun to play with... or in my case, look at.
OmNomNomNom!  Haribo in 12 different flavors + a retro stand = irresistable!

Now that I'm back:  A super necessary detox waiting for me... if I feel like it... maybe next week...
