Currently in Beaufort

The other day I stumbled across an Instagram caption that talked about how their days had recently been filled with things that didn’t really matter to other people but mattered to them and I thought YES, that’s exactly how our life has been recently.  We haven’t been taking any big trips, we haven’t been eating at any fancy restaurants, but our days have been filled with little moments, doing things that matter to us.  Doesn’t make for exciting posts but does make for a full life!

renting a boat from mcas beaufort
Doing:  Last weekend, we rented a boat from base and spent the entire weekend out on the water.  It was perfect!  Sunshine and being near the water are crucial to my sanity πŸ˜‰

Reading:  Recently finished The Girl on the Train (super late to that one!) and Every Fifteen Minutes by Lisa Scottoline and just started Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes.

Eating:  We spent the end of May and most of June completing the Whole30 (100%, did it!  So proud!) but since then it has been a breakfast sandwiches from the farmer’s market and waffles cones of chocolate raspberry truffle.  Balance, right? πŸ˜‰

Drinking:  Honey Lavender iced coffees from a new little coffee shop in Port Royal, Pluff Mudd.

Listening: To this and this and this on repeat!

Writing: In my new planner which FINALLY started this week!

Socializing:  This month’s squadron coffee was a fun one.  The ladies planned a two hour sunset boat tour on the Prince of Tides.  We loaded up the boat with wine and snacks and had the absolute perfect weather for the evening.  I brought these cheesecake stuffed strawberries (but chocolate cheesecake and dipped in dark chocolate) and they were a hit.

Watching:  The season finale of The Office, again.  Rob and I started The Office over from episode one when we moved to Beaufort.  It has been so fun to watch an episode or two every couple of nights and rewatching some of our favorite moments.  Turns out, knowing what is going to be happen doesn’t make the finale any less emotional – I cried like a baby…again.  (If you really want a good cry, check out the cast read the final episode for the first time…it’s too much for my heart to handle!)

Prioritizing: Real life > Facebook.  Deleting FB from my phone has been (as always for me!) the best decision.  (Still love instagram though!)

Celebrating:  The last hurrah of the Spaghetti Club.  One of the restaurants in our neighborhood closed down (and is being replaced by an awesome Indian restaurant in a few weeks) so of course we had to eat, drink, and dance there one last time.  They had an awesome band and a buffet/open bar for the final celebration and being able to walk just a few steps home made the night even more fun.

Looking forward to: July!  I’m excited to spend the holiday weekend with good friends, good food, fireworks, baseball, and brunch.  We also have some fun things on the calendar for July so I’m excited to soak up South Carolina summer!

  • I so agree! My husband and I haven't done much lately but hike and hang out, and I love it! We're watching The Office too and although I know what happens at the end I still get emotional!

  • We also have had some boring to others and fun to us times. Like how exciting is blogging about working all week and having class on Saturdays?
