If You Need Me…

Try the beach!

The family and I packed up and drove to Destin, Florida, over the weekend for our annual beach trip.  We’re relaxing, soaking in the sun, and spending some much-needed quality time together. 

Even though I’m on vacation, I have some fun stuff planned for the blog this week…a little Show-and-Tell tomorrow, some fashion on Wednesday,more of a home tour you’ve been asking about for a LONG time on Thursday, and my Friday Favorites!  You don’t want to miss it!

If you’re a frequent Destin traveler, PLEASE share with me your favorite places to eat!!  We have our favorites, but we’d love to try something new.  Thank you in advance!  Happy Monday!  XOXO

    So we just vacationed near Destin last month in the cutest little beach town ever that would be so worth your drive! Seaside is about 20-ish minutes from Destin…you have to go!! 🙂 Our favorite places to eat were Great Southern (amazing!!), Bud and Alley's Taco Bar and all the cute airstream food trucks. I promise it's totally worth driving over to Seaside. 😉

    Love Destin!! I always enjoy Harry T's, Harbor Docks, The Crab Trap, the Red Bar (30a), Hammerheads and Acme Oyster House (both in Baytowne). Rosemary Beach is on 30a, and your children would really enjoy it. Thursday night is movie night on the green, and they have an old fashioned candy store, The Sugar Shak, which is so fun for both kids and adults! Hope you have a wonderful trip and wear plenty of sunscreen! 🙂

    We just returned from WaterColor a few weeks ago. We love to eat at Wine World and Great Southern Cafe in Seaside. We also drove to Destin for the day to do the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise and had dinner at Harry Ts. We thought it was great. Enjoy your vacation!

    Lillie's Q…call early in the morning to reserve the banana pudding (they only make 12 a day and run out quick). Donut Hole – I think that's the name of it…they have all sorts of food.

    Go to Boshamps and have the Snapper Destin. It was featured in Southern Living and for a very good reason. It's my favorite meal anywhere!!! Have fun!
