Yeah, I'm at the Beach.

Hence not having anything relevant to say ...

Hence the bullet points ...

* Did I mention I cut bangs? Nothing like being original. I mean, no one's getting bangs cut right now, right? Actually, I look the same.
* I did attempt to run on the beach this morning, but had to default to the bike path on the road, while dodging seagulls and pelicans (all trying to peck my eyeballs out like they did in Hitchcock's "The Birds").

* In addition, I did run after eating an entire box of Milk Duds and burger and fries. Totally appropriate.

* All day, the two songs I couldn't get out of my head were: "Hotel California" and "If You Like Pina Coladas." Weird. Which then made me think of the whole backward-masking thing. Remember that? Isn't "Hotel California" evil or something?

* Standing outside, looking at the beach, and the wide expanse of sky, made me realize how small I really am (in reference to God, not in general).

* My feet lived up to their task today as "the prop." As you can see, they are screaming for some type of compensation.
* Random unflattering picture of guy in background with his dog (really it's my friend, Tiffany's husband, Rhett). He's fasting and he's not usually mysterious, but he can't talk about it.
* Beau's neck

* I ate one of the best steaks ever last night made by Tiffany's dad ... ingredients: steaks, olive oil, salt & pepper. He says, "The secret's in the heat." Two words: cast-iron skillet.

* After cooking with his Le Creuset pots, I surely want one. Maybe two.

* Four-hour drive today back home. Boo.

I would love to have Le Creuset pots!! Someone told me you can sometimes find them at Tuesday morning....don't know if it's true but it's worth a look, if you have one!

And here I sit in Idaho with a gorgeous day ahead of me...jealous, so so jealous!

Ouch! Beau looks like he is in some serious pain.

H-Mama said...

DK burned the tops of his feet so bad once that he couldn't lace his shoes... they were SO swollen. I'm sure he feels your pain.

Love coated cast iron! I don't advise the old uncoated... it can turn teeth a nice orange... just sayin'. ;)

Cute cut by the way!

You know, at first, I was jealous of you being at the beach...and then I saw the sunburns. LOL!!! No, I think I'd take the sunburns in exchange for working in the office all week. BOO! ;)

"Rachel" said...

Poor Beau! That neck looks painful! Of course now he can say he's a REAL redneck, yuk yuk yuk. :) I'm still wanting to know where you guys went. We had steaks last night too; my hubby grilled them at the grill on the beach.

Good Lord! Would sunscreen have messed up the shoot or something?

Lindsay said...

That sunburn makes me cringe.

Enjoy the beach! :)

Lily said...

Sunblock is your friend. Really.

Enjoy the beach!! :-)

The Hat Chick said...

PLEASE tell me that is makeup and not actual sunburn on your feet and Beau's neck....and your complexion is flawless....it hate you (not really)

Jeanette said...

I wanna go....(insert whine here!)

PLEASE! I need to get away from this crazy place I live...allergy season is killing me (achoo, sniff)

TCKK said...

Wow! That is some bad sunburn!!!!

Debra said...

Oh my goodness I can't believe how red your husband's neck is. Girrrl, I know that hurts! Your foot looked pretty red too. Ouch!

I'll never forget that movie, The Birds....can't believe my parents let me watch it when I was so young. I could have had nightmares people, what were you thinkin'?

Hope you've enjoyed your time at the beach....I'm sure you prob aren't ready to go home...I know I wouldn't be. So glad you didn't get your eyes pecked out by the birds...that wouldn't look so good with your new cut bangs! LOL

Rachelle said...

OUCH! Sunburn! I fry in the sun as well...

jennifer said...

Any comment I may have made has been totally forgotten because of that neck! SPF 30!! 50!! Do they make 100?!!

I suddenly feel the need to tell Jeff Foxworthy jokes.
