Vacation Wrap Up

I have been pre-occupied with a lot of good stuff on the home front this past week that I never got a chance to really talk about our vacation and post more pics. I also had a hard time putting the pics into a fun mosaic sort of fashion I have seen on other blogs. I couldn't move on with other posts until I wrapped this up so finally here are just a few other pics and a review of our vacation.

It was incredible!! Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort was beautiful. The food, the condo we stayed in, the weather, all simply exceeded our expectations. Tristan was the perfect travel companion. One morning while in the middle of us in the big bed, and half asleep, Tristan extended his arms out to both of us and pulled our heads into his shoulders. Our hearts melted. He also went into the ocean water for the first time as well as took a shower with Daddy for the first time ever. So, we had some special moments.

I also remained extremely motivated while on our trip. One morning I went jogging on the beach, another time I jogged from the beachside of the resort all the way to the bayside. I even woke up one morning at 6am to jog before Terry had to leave for golf at 7am!! While I had a few indulgent meals, I didn't go crazy just because I was on vacation. So, the healthy feeling stayed with me and made our trip even more awesome! I cannot wait to go back to Sandestin sometime in the future!

These were the best oysters I ever had in my life. Chargrilled and then drizzled with seasoned butter and romano cheese.

Beach Fun the Right Way. We would go to the pool during the day when it was stifling hot and then go to the beach about 4:30 when it was more comfortable.

Look at that beach-kissed face

Wow, that place looks amazing! So glad you had a good time.

You know, I didn't go completely crazy on my vacation either (foodwise), but I didn't really count points either. I went back to weight watchers yesterday and I had only gained half a pound. Woo hoo! It was so much better than I was expecting.
