A day at the Beach

Today Sweetness and I went over to my Dad's house for a nice get together. They live right ON THE OCEAN!!! It really is such a beautiful home, I thought I would take an opportunity to show it to ya'll. Warning: lots of pics in this post!
We were greeted by Jack when we walked in the door......
followed closely by sweet
and last but not least, Little Bit. (She was a rescued Hurricane Katrina dog).
After all the excitement of welcoming us in, they were then just relaxing and chillin with us in the kitchen.
This is my Dad and his wife Sue.
and then their friends Rich and Jen arrived......
Corrin was still chilaxin on the cool floor.....
And here is the awesome spread they had prepared for everyone to nibble on!
So let's take the tour I promised you of their beautiful beach house..... Shall we?
I took several pics of the beautiful "beachy" touches that Sue has put all through the house. Hope you enjoy...

The beautiful mirror in the bathroom.
Literally, the beach is THAT way, out the door!!!
This is their living room, there is a sun room just outside that big window.
This is inside the sun room looking out to their backyard! (the dunes)
cute little table and chairs in the sun room
furniture out in the sun room, beautiful beachy turquoise colors....
My favorite pic from the day, standing on their deck, looking out into their "backyard"- The Atlantic Ocean!!!
My dad built this bar right into the patio, as he says "this bar is always open!"
I loved this too; painted right on a seashell.

After all the excitement for the day, Corrin was beat, but still looking so sweet!
After we left my Dad's, we went to Target, and I was able to pick up this book below. In my People magazine this week, this book was listed as the top Pick, as it has a sequel that just came out also. It has been such a long time since I have been able to curl up with a really good book! And that is exactly what I plan on doing this evening......lounging with sweetness and this (hopefully good) book!
Has anyone out there read this book already? Tell me how it was!!!
No IVF news today, looking forward to Friday- our "Baseline Day"- full of Ultrasounds, bloodwork, consent forms and TONS of hope! Please keep praying- we need it!!
Ending with a Scripture-
Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old."
-Psalm 25:4-6


  1. Sometimes I still can't believe we lived there... well, not there... since we certainly did not have the Atlantic Ocean as our yard!! What a beautiful place they have!

    Hope you enjoyed your book and each other. And certainly hope you're feeling well!

  2. Hey Baby,

    Sue and I want to thank you for the great pictures and the kind words. Sue and feel we are indeed blessed to have such a stress reducing slice of heaven.

    May be this time next year, "Gand Pa" Jerry will be playing in the sand/surf with Action Jackson and Jacob (or their sisters)...:)

    You and Sean are welcome to our home anytime...

    Thanks again..
