Jersey Shore!

This past weekend Jeremy and I headed to the Jersey Shore! Some friends from West Point informed me of lodgings on various naval bases across the nation for vacations. We found a sweet little deal in Jersey, and I was needing some beach time. The South Carolina girl was needing some sand and sun! 

We began our trip on Friday night with a stop at Chickfila, of course! Chicken sandwiches to begin the vacation.  Our little hotel was the cutest thing - right smack in the middle of the naval base. We watched the Olympics and ran the next morning. During our run, the "Star Spangled Banner" began playing; we stopped mid-run to observe the national anthem. I couldn't have been more proud to be standing in that moment, though the immediate stop caused a few breathing problems. #militarylife

Our next stop Saturday morning was the Jersey Shore - specifically Sea Girt!

We were able to get a good picture, but we have even better tan lines.

For good measure... When you try to take that picture using the selfie timer, and this is what you get.

It wouldn't be a stop at the Jersey Shore without going to Jersey Mike's. Helloooo! Haven't seen this place in a while!  It just so happened there was a Whole Foods next door, so we took on a few cupcakes for balance.

We ended our little vacation by heading home to grill out and watch the Olympics. Our little quick 24-hr getaway was the best and just in time before school started back. These little trips greatly remind me of why Jeremy is my best friend and partner in marriage - We love to discover new places/adventure. We love to relax. We love to eat. We love to run. We love doing things together.

In case you were wondering, my beach read was Andi Dorfman's "It's Not Okay". In a word: Fantastic.
