COOP’S FIRST BEACH TRIP – PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL

Ahh, vacation is over.  That was fast.

At the very last minute, (I’m talking booked a condo at 5pm, packed, got ready, left the house at 8pm) we (Mac, Cooper, and myself) decided to go to Florida.  Destination: Panama City Beach.

We drove around 5 hours that night.  We stopped at around 5 exits before Birmingham, Alabama to find a hotel for the night, but no such luck!  We ended up driving 25 miles past Birmingham before we found a hotel.  There was some type of ball tournament in the area that had hotels BOOKED.  We finally laid our heads down around 2am in Alabaster, AL.

Next morning, we hopped up outta bed and headed straight for the Waffle House.  We don’t travel without at least one stop at the Waffle House.  Walmart was our next stop and then back on I-65 towards Florida.

We arrived around 2:30pm! WOOHOO!  At our home away from home. Thanks to Joe at Panhandle Getaways for giving us a good deal!

Our 4 nights and 5 days at the beach were pretty awesome!  The morning we were to head home, it was storming, but other than that the weather was perfect.

Cooper loved riding on the golf cart down the streets of PCB!

All of the food was amazing!  We ate at Harpoon Harry’s, Pineapple Willy’s, Another Broken Egg Café, Whataburger, Waffle House…. and lots of ham sandwiches!

Cooper squalled a lot of the way there and back, but nothing we couldn’t handle 😉  Our DVD player died 70 miles before we got to Panama, so that was one of the first purchases on our list.

All I Want For Christmas – New Mom Edition

All I Want For Christmas New Mom Edition

1. A nap.  One without interruptions and for as many hours as I need it to be.

2. A pair of skinny jeans that fit and look good.  Let’s be honest, I’m still wearing my maternity skinny jeans, among other maternity clothes.

3. A good concealer for dark under eye circles.  Makeup is not my “thing”, but I do throw a little on every day.  Someone tell me a darn good concealer that I can rub on and go!

4. An energy drink that actually gives you more energy.  Mello Yello is my go-to, but it’s not cutting it anymore.

5. For my baby Cooper to have the best first Christmas ever!  He has no clue what’s going on this year and I haven’t bought him the first toy, but that’s okay, it’s still going to be a good one.

Is this asking too much?!
