Headed to the beach!

I’m headed to the beach today and I couldn’t be more excited!  I have only put a bathing suit on one time this year (for about an hour).  So I could really use a tan.  Crossing my fingers that the weather cooperates.  I will be spending the week with 30 of my closest relatives.  You might remember what happened last year :)  I’m looking forward to relaxing with the family and hopefully soaking up some sunshine!

First pedicure in 88 years!

My 88 year old great aunt got her first pedicure at the beach this week. It was an exciting and entertaining event! I think she liked the massage chair better than the pedicure… Here’s how it went:

Getting in the chair…

“What do all these buttons do? I didn’t know I was getting a massage too!”

Success!

Beach Bound

Countdown to spending a whole week at the beach: 4 days!!!  And I cannot wait.  I used to think that living far away from the beach was a good thing because it made beach vacations more special.  Not anymore.  Now I’m convinced I would be perfectly fine living near the beach.  I would never take it for granted.  Maybe one day I’ll make this dream a reality.

Of course I would have these Graham & Green chairs in my breakfast room:

 

 

Or else I would have some bistro chairs like the ones in this dining area designed by Ashley Whitaker:

 

 

I love the pendants in the kitchen below…

 

 

But we all know I can’t resist my beloved Hicks pendants:

 

 

 

I would put these adorable Vineyard Striped Rugs from Ballard Designs in the hallways on hardwood floors…

 

A beach house isn’t complete without an outdoor shower.  How awesome is this one?

 

 

I love this driftwood lamp for a beach house — not sure where its from though.

 

 

 

 

Orkney chairs are very beachy in my opinion, of course my dream beach house has at least one…

 

 

 

 

I would probably go with this AMAZING Lotus wallpaper by Galbraith & Paul in one of the bathrooms… Seriously, this wallpaper is like my new favorite thing EVER.
