My Life Being Renewed: Our Weekend Beach Trip!

Our Weekend Beach Trip!

September 19, 2016

Saturday morning we finally were on our way to Destin by 7:30! We stopped and picked up Chick Fil A for the hubby for breakfast and I had my banana + organic granola bar.

I used my DD free drink credit to get a iced coffee + shot of caramel

At the Destin Harbor

I had purchased a Groupon for the Destin Love Shack so we decided to give a try!

The Destin Love Shack reminded me of those cute local eateries in the Bahamas and Caribbean.

I forgot to take photos of our food but it was amazing!! I had the Caribbean Chicken and the hubby had the grass fed steak kabobs- both were amazing! We had a mango tango smoothie to go which was really yummy.

   We hadn't been to the Surf Hut since last year, so we figured it was due time for a visit.

 We went to Surf Hut for Dinner and made it just in time for Happy Hour! We immediately ordered two of the $3 Margaritas.

 The margaritas were pretty strong, so we only had one each.

  We ordered the most expensive (& the largest) Captains Platter that came with a cup of Gumbo- we couldn't finish it all so we packed it up for the hotel for some late night snacking :)

 Sunday, for lunch we decided to go to our favorite spot- Osaka Japanese Steakhouse!

 We both had the Bay Crab Roll, tempura style with eel sauce and fish eggs on top- so good!!

 We picked up some oysters on the half shell & shrimp for the hubby to grill later this week.

We had the best time on our weekend beach trip! We went shopping at Destin Commons, Silver Sands Premium Outlets and I was even able to return a swimsuit top from Old Navy and redeem my $30 Gap coupon. I also redeemed a $20 voucher from Charming Charlie's that I purchased online and bought two gorgeous handbags.

I picked up a cute basket for our coffee kcups + two more boxes of the Seattle's Best kcups from Home goods with my $20 voucher that I earned. We also went to Ross and found an audio cable for the hubby's phone so that he could play music from Sound cloud.

We visited both Miramar beach on Saturday and then Grayton beach on Sunday. It was an awesome weekend filled with lots of good food, shopping, catching up on some reading and enjoying the beach- the perfect beach trip in my book! I'm thinking maybe another beach trip in the next 4-6 weeks sounds good!

  3. This sounds like so much fun! Believe it or not, I've never been to a Florida beach! I think I need to get myself there asap!

    1. Laura, you should definitely go to Destin or Santa Rosa or Rosemary Beach asap! There is so much to do - shopping, boating, parasailing. You could easily stay for a week and have so much fun!
