I would be completely content if every summer weekend looked like this one! We had a totally spontaneous weekend and while I am usually much more of a planner, it worked out for the best!
Friday night we went to Harvest Grill for dinner with Kyleigh and Frank. Saturday morning, we woke up, had breakfast, worked out, and didn’t really have any plans. I started thinking about a conversation I had with my mom earlier in the week about how I was never going to look back at this time and wish that we had traveled less. The next thing I knew, we were throwing clothes in a bag and jumping in the car for a last minute trip to the beach. Let’s face it, the first officially day of summer calls of sunshine, salty air, and sandy toes!
On the drive down, we bought tickets to the Blue Wahoos baseball game. This was our first game of the season and I couldn’t wait to see the new changes. With a gorgeous stadium right on the bay, how could the games get any better?! NEW FOOD! This year, in addition to typical ballpark food, the Blue Wahoos stadium incorporated a bunch of local restaurant foods options. They now serve everything from oysters behind home plate to traditional McGuire’s Irish Wakes. So Pensacola and so wonderful! We had to split and try a little bit of everything.
Salad from So Chopped (inside of The Bodacious Olive)
Angelino from The Bodacious Brew
Sushi including the most interesting and delicious strawberry sushi roll!
Sunday morning we woke up early to check out the new Bikram studio in Pensacola. While I’ve heard great things about it (and tried other hot yoga classes), this was my first Bikram hot yoga class. 90 minutes, 26 poses, and totally invigorating! I don’t normally sweat much but needless to say I was dripping in sweat the entire class. I wish we had a studio in Meridian and definitely plan to check out another class when we are back in town.
From yoga, we grabbed iced coffees and bagel sandwiches before heading straight to the beach. It was a hot but gorgeous day and I was completely content just soaking up the sunshine all day long. We made a few quick trips to Target and The Fresh Market before making the drive back to Mississippi. I would be sad except we already have our hotel room booked in Pensacola for next weekend! Yup, I think every summer weekend should look like this 😉
