Happy Thursday, friends!
Here’s a little look at life lately with my little fam…
With a very open calendar these days, we’ve had way more time to do things together. This big guy and I have loved riding bikes together. He even indulges me with a selfie from time to time 🙂 .
We have LOVED being able to pop into “town” as often as we like. On this day, we needed a few things and were clearly really happy about being there.
Kensington and I have been working out together almost every single day which makes my mama heart SO HAPPY! We’ve never worked out together, so the entire experience has been new. My favorite part? All of the chit chatting we do from the moment we leave the house until the moment we get home. My second favorite part? We ride our bikes to the gym. I LOVE being able to bike around town.
I was sitting at the bar working and looked over at my super cute “work mate”. How sweet is my littlest love?!
The dogs have all settled in quite nicely 🙂 .
We found and LOVE Surfing Hydrangea Nursery for our outdoor flower needs. Andrew has already planted so many new shrubs, hydrangeas, he’s filled our flower boxes, added plants to our pots. It’s looking really fantastic!
We love “field trips” to the nursery!
We also love field trips to the beach. We’ve been stopping by and visiting different beaches any chance we get. Even if the weather is a little chilly, we can bring lunch/snacks/books/the frisbee/etc and just enjoy the ocean and being outside.
Just at the marina with my favorite guy.
I mostly work either at the kitchen counter or on the patio table.
We’ve been driving out to Madaket (on the west side of the island) for years to enjoy their market, beach and of course, Millie’s. We went to Millie’s Market the other day for an afternoon ice cream.
The birthday girl picked dinner at Cru for her special dinner. They were closed for a private event on June 9th, so we made reservations for June 8th where, of course, she wanted to eat…
…all the oysters. My family is a big fan of oysters! Cru has amazing food and the most fabulous location!
This is my new favorite picture. We were trying to take a selfie and Smith couldn’t get his hair “just right”. We could not stop laughing. That boy and his hair!
The Bake Shop for the win on Ashby’s birthday morning! They have a huge selection of gluten-free baked goods!
She’s always all smiles.
Well, I could cry. Seriously, cry. One of my very favorite islanders made Ashby’s birthday dinner SO SPECIAL at The Lobster Trap! From the minute we walked in until the minute we left, she had our table all fixed up, she had a special birthday sash and she had an ice cream cake for Miss Ashby. You guys, it was the sweetest.
We are so thankful for the small community of people we’ve met over the years that have taken us Texans in, loved on us and made us feel so welcome and special.
Ashby had the sweetest 11th birthday dinner all because one person decided to make it special JUST BECAUSE. I am forever grateful.
She’s not even the “dog person” in the family 😉 .
A sunny Saturday afternoon got us out to Nobadeer Beach where we were able to use our vehicle’s beach pass for the first time and drive out on the sand.
We spent all afternoon there enjoying the sunshine…and the convenience of driving right to our beach spot.
The Sox and Yankees played last weekend, so on Saturday night, we decided to head to one of our favorite outdoor spots to watch the game. We had the best time (per usual!) at Ventuno’s outdoor bar.
Before church on Sunday, this kid and I took a 7 mile round trip bike ride through the most beautiful farm land to and from Cisco Beach.
We sat on the dune and watched 20+ pretty amazing surfers as we chatted. I told Andrew it was probably my favorite thing I’ve done so far during our time here.
After we biked, we hit up Island Kitchen for breakfast before church and…
…then we headed out to Sconset Beach for the day. The water was too chilly for me, but these two were in it all day long!
Mades’ passed on the chilly water, but Ashby is brave and would dip in from time to time. It was the most gorgerous day!
My big and my little…and count…all three pups 😉 .
Monday night of laundry (see the pile?), Bravo TV and two sleeping pups.
That’s a little look at life lately.
I’ll see you tomorrow! xx
