My Weekend WrapUp - YUMMommy

My Weekend WrapUp

This weekend has been a great one.  It's my last weekend home with my family since Moo and I move into our new place this upcoming Friday.  I'm a little sad to be going and am thinking about postponing the move for another week or two.  Although, I am very eager to be in my own space and have some peace and quiet, I have gotten used to being surrounded my family. Thankfully, I'll only be an hour and a few minutes away.

Anyways, this weekend I got a chance to have some bonding time with my younger brother at Myrtle Beach!!  It was a blast.  Friday night we got the party started with a nice dinner of barbeque ribs, yellow rice and green beans cooked by my brother of course.  Yes, his three older sisters have trained him well and he is indeed a wonderful cook thanks to us.  He's going to make some lucky young lady a very fine husband one day.

Saturday, we lounged around for a little bit before finally  deciding to hit up the beach.  It's been a while since I've been to actual beach front, but seeing all the sites-the water parks, Ripley's Believe It or Not and the hotels-caused a flood of old memories.  This was a memorable trip because it was Moo's first time at the beach!!!!!  I was super excited. I was worried a little bit that she might not like the water.  And with the temperature well above 93 degrees, I worried that the heat would cause her excema to flare up.

But I worried for nothing because she enjoyed herself to the fullest.  She loved the water!!  It was a bit cold at first for her but as we walked with our feet in the waves, she began to giggle and kick up her little feet. I will forever remember the cute little smiles that she kept beaming up at me as played in the sand and dug up seashells.  We didn't find any whole or really nice ones to put in her scrapbook. 

Her favorite part by far was the washing off at the shower. She loves water and didn't want to leave.  She actually threw a huge fit.  And we probably would have stayed if I didn't have to get her a new outfit because she got sand all over the one she wore.  So, it was off to KMart where I got a super cute outfit for under $5.00.  Then it was off to lunch at McDonald's her favorite place to eat.

I was totally tired and worn out by the time we got back to the apartment. So, to bed we headed. And this morning we slept in until 9 and then eat breakfast and enjoyed afternoon of WeTV. I love my Bridezilla and My Fair Wedding!!  And now I'm back home packing getting ready for my move, feeling slightly refreshed.

Hope you all had a blessed weekend as well.


  1. That sounds like a great weekend! That is also so special that your daughter got to have her first beach experience so young. Since I am from the Midwest, I don't think I saw the ocean for the first time until I was about 14! Crazy, I know! Even though she's very young, moments like this will always stick with her! :)

  2. @Andrea- It was a great weekend. I'm glad that she got to experience her 1st beach trip early too. In college, I met people from the Midwest who had never seen the ocean before either. It's funny how we take simple things like being able to go to the beach for granted.

  3. Hello YUMMama!!! I got the link to your blog from Mommy Glow! This blog is amazing! Sounds like you had a really good weekend. Let me tell ya, the earlier you can expose the little ones to the beach and water, the better. For our first trip to the beach (last year), I did NOT prepare my son well. And he did NOT enjoy it. But this year, it's been better. Same thing goes for the pool. LOL.

    Great post!

  4. @SweetAl-Thanks for visiting!! I'm really glad that you like my blog. And I learned the hard way about pool exposure when I took Moo to her first pool party in May. She did not enjoying the splashing at all and refused to get in.

  5. Hello YUMMama, I my back but off to Scotland. I still have to sit and write about my holiday in Italy but that will come. Thanks for stopping by :)!

  6. @MsBabyPlan-Scotland huh? Never been but it's on my list of places to travel to. A holiday in Italy is on my list too.
