I'm Back!!!

Obviously by the number of posts I just caught up on, I am back from vacation. Many of you posted asking how it went, so I wanted to update on that. There were 17 of us staying in a huge, gorgeous beach house, just across from the water on beautiful Hilton Head. We had a great time, it is the first time my whole family has been together since I was a kid! The kids had a great time at the ocean. I brought home several whole sand dollars that I found, starfish, and an adorable mini conch shell. I will post a few pics when I upload them. I of course went shopping. I found a great surf shop about a mile from the house, and it seemed everything was on sale! So, I bought a cool beachy shell necklace, a t-shirt sporting the surf shops logo, and a pair of Rainbow flip flops for me, Reef flops for Jim and the girls. Can't believe how much I spent on flip-flops, or that there is another brand as pricey as Rainbows, but there is, and they are Reef's. I am madly in love with both brands at the moment! However, it's getting cool and I won't get to wear them too much, but they were on sale, so I had to buy them, right??? Well, maybe not, but I had to get a souvenier, right??? I would rather have new shoes than a keychain!!! The trip was wonderful, I had a blast with my family, and my kids did too. Thanks to all of you for asking. I will get some pics up ASAP! I missed you all and am glad to be back. However, I came home sick, still fighting that. I just got back from the gym, and caught up posting, now it's time to fix dinner. I will be stamping tonight, I hope, and posting again soon!

Glad you had a great time on your vacation. My brother's and I take our kids every year to the beach. I wouldn't trade it for the world. We always have such a great time!

Welcome back! Glad you had a great time. It's not a vacation unless you load up with goodies from the different places you visit! Looking forward to the pictures.

Welcome back! Glad to hear you had such a nice trip- you can't go wrong near the ocean! I love it! I also love your outlook on souveniers- shoes are way better than a keychain!
