Girl Time and Weekend Recap

Happy Monday. I hope your week is off to a great start. As I mentioned, last week I was in Destin, Florida visiting my cousin, Brooke, and her family. Brooke and I have been close since we were young, but we don’t get to see each other as often as we’d like because we now live miles apart. This year we decided it would be fun if I visited for her b-day, so I flew out on Tuesday and stayed through Saturday.

Walking on the Beach

I had a great time celebrating Brooke’s birthday, seeing their new house and snuggling baby June (their daughter). I posted a few pictures on Insta while I was away, but figured I’d do a little recap of my trip and this past weekend today.

I arrived in Florida on Tuesday. The weather was beautiful and we ended up grilling out for dinner. I must say, grilling out in November is something I could definitely get used to. :)

Bean Burgers and Grilled Sweet Potato Slices

We had black bean burgers, roasted zucchini and squash and grilled sweet potato slices. Jon (Brooke’s husband) grilled the potatoes with a little olive oil, apple cider vinegar and brown sugar. They were delish!

Wednesday was Brooke’s birthday and the weather was really nice so we headed to Fort Walton Beach. It was too chilly to get in the water, but we had fun walking along the beautiful beach — the sand is white and the water is completely clear. I want to go back when it’s warm and go swimming!

We even met a fisherman friend and saw a stingray while walking.
