Sea Island

 T and I took a much need vaca to Sea Island recently
We went with friends, but it was a great place to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary

Love the drive in
You immediately go in to vaca mode

As we kicked backed and sipped our cocktails, we watched their cute pup play
Can you tell she likes water?
and fetching?


Time for Round 2


I love watching her jump in
She was having a ball!

The house where we stayed has been in our friend's family for years
I love these old Georgia/Florida posters
In college, we always stayed on St. Simon's Island for the UGA/UF game
so many fun memories

The interior of the house is just beautiful
I couldn't help but snap a few photos

Love this guest bedroom

And I'd loooove to have this map

The beautiful living room
What a fantastic space!

And these tabby floors are great
and easy to clean (esp. after sandy, wet feet track through your house)

We enjoyed lots of laughs laying out by the pool Saturday
especially when the men got out the kid's pool toys

Since we were headed to the beach and I have an extreme sweet tooth, I brought some crab and whale cookies along.  I think I ate about 10 of these, which is not good when you're prancing around in a bathing suit all day.  Obviously, I was on vacation!

And, of course, we had lot a gossip mags to read poolside...
A beach necessity

Chick-fil-a lemonade/vodka cocktail, Star magazine, and a good view = amazing 

T had a rough day

That afternoon we headed to the beach club for a pre-dinner drink
The view is beautiful

And the weather was perfect

While T was grabbing our drink, I wandered around
and found this...

I wish this was my house
I can dream

I love this picture of our friends enjoying the day
It was one of the best afternoons

We couldn't have asked for a better trip to Sea Island
If you ever get the chance to visit, I'd highly recommend going
Plus, the Tibi outlet is there, so that worth the trip all by itself - T says I need to be banned from that place!!!

Hope everyone had a happy weekend!

I love Sea Island. I haven't been in years, but we always had so much fun playing Bingo and swimming at the Beach Club. Looks like a great weekend!

It looks like an amazing time. I am with you, I love the trashy magazines - gotta have them, especially when hanging at the pool :)
What a beautiful area!!

What a great way to spend the weekend! I have always wanted to go to Sea Island ... hmmmm, maybe 1st anniversary trip for us! And I may (accidentally) leave out of the conversation with my husband that there just happens to be a Tibi outlet there. "Oh, now what is this I see? Let's just pop in?" :)

Oh, Sea Island! One of my friend's family always rents a house there every year and I've been fortunate enough to have been invited to stay with them for a bit. It is seriously a lovely place. I absolutely adore it and St. Simons. I want to be there now!
