I never thought we’d actually make it… but we are here! Our most looked forward to week of every year. Each June we take a beach trip for summer vacation and I can’t believe I don’t have to do anything but lay in the sand for the next 7 days.
We decided to go to Newport Beach this year since the flight is so short and it’s less chaotic with everything we have going on right now. We got to escape Phoenix’s 110 degree weather, so we all were freezing tonight and it feels so good.
I thought that I started the trip off with a broken leg. We walked down to the pier right when we got here, and I was watching the surfers totally mesmerized because in my next life I am going to be a California surfer chick, and I ran full speed into this huge wooden bench. I hit it so hard right below my knee cap, that immediately it sent shock waves up and down my leg and started swelling. I couldn’t walk… I couldn’t sit because I was in so much pain… I was just like well, of course this happens the very second we get here!
We were icing it back at the beach house and it was just so swollen and I could hardly move. This lasted for a couple of hours and Mike was convinced it was broken and I was convinced that my life is sabotaged. 🙂
Then literally out of the blue, the pain went completely away… and we got up and went to the beach! You can see the swelling in the bottom picture on the leg thats closest to Mike… it goes all the way down my shin…Anyways, all is well and now I’m eating a tub of Red Vines and actually had time to write a little blog post! Vacation is AMAZING! I keep feeling nervous that I have something I need to be doing or checking or following up on, but I don’t. What a gift!
PS: a lot of you on Instagram asked me about my suit, here it is. And also here are some other really similar ones that I am loving!
If any of you have great Newport suggestions for food, or special things to see, let me know in the comments PLEASE! xoxoxo
