#WIWTW: Week 3

I can’t believe it’s already week 3 of my #WIWTW series! I’m having so much fun with these posts – thank you all for the kind comments + wonderful feedback! 🙂

WIWTW Week 2
Looks from week 2!

Alright, time to bring it back to the beginning of last week! It was an interesting one for sure – we had temps ranging from the 40’s to the 80’s… and there were a couple of mornings I was running late. Let me know if you can tell which ones, LOL. Hope you enjoy! –>

Skaket Beach | Cape Cod 2015

I love nothing more than spending time with my family. I enjoy doing anything with them, but taking our annual summer vacation is my very favorite. This summer, we abandoned our beloved Jersey Shore for a week in Cape Cod.

While nothing will ever compare to the nostalgic Jersey beach towns, we thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Cape! Each place we visited was as adorable as the one before; but there was one location in particular that I could not get over — Skaket Beach.

We visited this bay beach three times during the week – twice during the day, and once at sunset. The water was warm, the views were incredible, and once the tide rolled out – you could walk for  what felt like miles (which we did).  I brought my phone along to snap some photos — I had one too many to Insta, so I I figured I’d share them here…

Enjoy!

Memorial Day Weekend!

Over Memorial Day weekend my boyfriend and I took a trip to Cape Cod to spend some time with friends. I cannot tell you how relaxing, stress-free, and fun of a weekend it was! I wish I did a better job documenting everything, but I’ll share what I do have 🙂

Enjoy!

Still on my eating-well kick, I picked up some health-concious snacks at the gas station while we filled up…

Luckily, we didn’t hit any super crazy traffic, but it was still a long ride. Mike asked me an interesting question and I HAD to get it on camera…

Only fair to share a shot of the guys too 😉

Mike, Evan, Danny, Zack, Greg & Mike

We had another yummy dinner that night- steak tips, creamed spinach, and mac & cheese made from the Boston Market recipe (I think ours turned out better!)

Shenanigans ensued all evening, I wish I could share pictures from our charades game, but this is a group of employed professionals 😉 we’ll keep those memories personal!

The next day we just hung out & enjoyed the day. We took so many pictures, here are a few of my faves 🙂

Of course dinner was delish- more steak tips, grilled chicken, kielbasa, lobster, mac & cheese, spinach. SO yummm!

I was craving ice cream all day, and we ended up taking a trip after dinner 🙂 I splurged for a fancy cone with 2 scoops of Oreo Crunch! …What diet..?

Can you tell how excited I was?! lol

We got back that night, and Antonella decided to put her hair extensions on Zack. He looked so funny! All weekend he would randomly sing as if he were a priest, I got a quick video of him singing with his long hair, it’s hysterical!

The next morning we had breakfast together, we took a little ride into town and picked up some sweats. I am in love with my new teal and yellow zip up hoodie!

We all had lunch at this amazing little seafood spot. I wish I took pictures! Lobster rolls and fried clam strips for all. So good!

We started heading back home in the early evening, we hit some traffic but nothing too crazy! Take a peek into our drive home; can’t you tell Mike loves it when I put a camera in his face? LOL 😉

Memorial Day weekend was amazing! Good company, good food, good fun. It was so nice to just relax. I think 3 day weekends should be mandatory once a month! 😉

How did you spend your Memorial Day Weekend? Did you get away or do anything fun?
