Vacation on my mind

My hubby and I are just days away from our vacation.
 We are getting ready to celebrate our first wedding anniversary.
I can't believe it y'all
I've definitely got relaxation on my mind and this work week is naturally starting off really slow. 
This will be me 3 days from now....

  I cannot wait to be on the beach getting that perfectly bronzed skin with a fruity beverage in my hand
So maybe I strategically planned our wedding around "spring break" so I always have an excuse to go on vacation or get off work.
It is absolutely the perfect time
Everything is blooming
The weather is (usually) about 70-80 which is perfect in my opinion 
Brad and I decided to go back to Gulf Shores this year. It is just an 8 hour drive from where we live and it really has everything we need for a nice little getaway. 
Clean beaches, nice restaurants, great weather, good shopping and that quality husband/wifey time
 Y'all. I can't stand it. 
Mentally...I'm already packed and I know you are all just dying to know what exactly I'll be packing. 
(Come on...you know you are...)
Needless to say, I am ready to be on the beach!
I try to pack as lightly as possible going anywhere but we all know that never works and I end up packing WAY more than I will ever need. But hey - you never know what the weather will be like or what outfit you will be in the mood to wear. That's right I said it - I have to be in a certain "mood" to wear a certain outfit. Some days you feel great, others you feel like a busted can of biscuits so packing a variety of things matters.
Beach Vacation

  While the weather forecast doesn't appear like it is going to be as warm as we would like, you never know.
Bathing suits, cover ups and floppy hats are a beach vacay must
A fresh pedicure is a necessity
A camera to capture those little moments
I am seriously considering reading 50 Shades of Grey again this summer 
Vaseline on the lips is my go to so these babies stay silky smooth
Oversized sunnies are an outfit staple
Wedges and dresses are pretty much all you see me in this time of year (unless I'm at work)

Oh and of course the top layer of our wedding cake will be making the trip with us so we can eat it in celebration of our anniversary 
This might not be everything I need but you can check out my more detailed list on Amanda's blog soon.

and if I forget to pack anything.... there is always shopping!
