At the end of March, Paul and I headed to Destin, FL for a baby moon. It’s not a necessity while you’re pregnant, but it was so incredibly worth it! We were a little bummed because the forecast was predicted to be a little bit chilly, but man the weather was BEAUTIFUL during the day! At night, you needed to be bundled up for sure!!
We got to Destin, and immediately just took in the view from our hotel room. Destin is one of our favorite places, and it just made me happy looking off our balcony to this!
Friday night, we got there around 6, so we changed and headed to dinner. We ate at ACME and it was delicious! Then we spent the evening walking around Baytown. The whole time, we just kept talking about how awesome it will be when Aubrey gets older and we take trips to Destin, and she can play at all the fun little places they have for kids.
On Saturday, we headed to breakfast at “The Donut Hole”. If you’ve never been, you need to go. Right now! Take me with you! Everything is homemade, but the donuts are just melt in your mouth amazing. I want to go back… it’s just a 7 hour drive for a donut! Totally realistic!
Then we headed to the outlets, and did some damage in an about an hour. So we left! It was fun though! We got great deals at the Nike Outlet, and then updated Paul’s Sperry’s to a nicer pair. His were looking pretty pathetic. Afterwards, we headed to the beach, and it ended up being a gorgeous day! The weather said it was about 60 degrees, but in the sun it felt like 70. It was beautiful, and we even got some drinks on the beach… Virgin Strawberry Daquiri for me. I can pretend 🙂
I was daring enough to sun the bump this weekend too…
Saturday night, we headed to play put put golf, and we were pretty competitive. I was winning, until Paul pulled ahead! He ended up beating me by 7, but we both came in under par. Quite the accomplishment for a put put golf course!
After golf, we found a little local restaurant where we ate, and when we headed back to the hotel, Paul wanted to fish. So we headed to the beach, and it was FREEZING! I was shivering so bad, it was making my back hurt! So after about 10 minutes, I decided I was going back to the room. Well as soon as I told him, he caught a fish! He started reeling it in, and he could not have been more excited. One of my favorite parts about Paul is his excitement. When something makes him happy, you know it! He gets this HUGE smile, and he gets giddy like a little kid at Christmas. Then he continues to talk about whatever it was that excited him for a day or two with such animation. It’s adorable. So imagine his excitement when he caught this sucker…
Our weekend could not have been better. It was one of those weekends that just reminds you of all the things that made you fall in love in the first place. It was a perfect getaway from our busy life lately, and a perfect last weekend away before we are a family of 3!
