A Weekend in Mexico....Beach!

Hello friends and happy Friday to you! I don't know about you, but I am I am oh so ready for the weekend. It's been a long week considering it was actually a short week at work. I think it has something to do with my being out of town last weekend. It always takes a few days to get caught up on life and rest after being gone...even if it was fun! I'm here today to share the events of last weekend with you. If you are my friend on Facebook, then you already know I was at the beach last weekend....Mexico Beach, Florida to be precise.

My friend, Jeana asked my sister and I if we wanted to go with her for a Girl's Weekend and of course, we said yes! I had never been to this beach before. It was a nice little town and very laid back. Not busy at all considering it was a holiday weekend. That's the adorable little townhouse we stayed in above. Love the favorite color! Here's the view from the balcony.

This was one of the bedrooms.

Love this setee!

This was the other room and the one my sister, Nancy and I stayed in. favorite color along with accents of coral. Couldn't have been any more perfect! And I absolutely loved the bedding and the bicycle art on the wall!

We had a lovely weekend of walking on the beach, soaking up some sun, eating lots of great food, watching the movie War Room (I loved it!), and late night talking and catching up on life! Such a fun weekend! Here's the sunrise Sunday morning.

I enjoyed my early morning walk on the beach with Nancy. This wasn't eh best beach for shelling, but I did see a few. I loved this one with the holes worn in it. It is the only one I brought home.

I saw lots of these tiny shells that reminded me of a butterfly. See at the bottom of the photo.

Pretty sea grass swaying in the breeze.

Here are some more photos of the townhouse. The kitchen was so cute with it's upper white and lower grey cabinets.

I love the open shelving above the counter. 

The shell like chandelier was very pretty.

This little area in the dining room was super cute!

The downstairs half bath was really pretty.

Love the mirrored frame surrounding the mirror.

I absolutely loved this coffee table!!

The entry was very welcoming.

As was the back patio area.

I had to take sunset photos on Sunday evening. It was such a wonderful evening. So perfect for photographing.

The photos I took of the cross and sunset were my favorites.

Such a wonderful, long weekend. We had such a good time together. Silly at the photo of my sister with the "man" she met. 


I truly enjoyed myself! It was a much needed weekend away. Thanks again Jeana for the invitation! 

I hope you are all doing well. Thank you so much for the sweet comments you have left on my last couple of posts. They are truly appreciated. And, just a little update on Miranda's move to Prague. She is doing very well and absolutely loves it. She has a flat now and a job and the Visa process is going smoothly so far. She has met a nice guy and is enjoying his company. Her heart is full and so is mine. She is loving life and living it to the fullest! Here's a recent photo of her. 
Prague looks beautiful on her.....

If you would like to read about her adventure, you can follow her blog. Here is her most recent post.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Until next time.....
