Vacation in Atlantic Beach, FL

How are you? We had a fantastic week. Based on a recommendation from Gina, Josh and I went on a vacation to Atlantic Beach, Florida. Our parents were nice enough to watch Kaylin for us, so we could enjoy a true adult getaway. I had MAJOR anxiety about leaving Kaylin, but I knew she was in good hands. 

We drove down on Monday and returned on Thursday. We stayed at the One Ocean resort. The resort was perfect for us. We could walk to dinner, the store, and the gym (we worked out at an LA Fitness). They also had a great pool area and access to the beach. One of the coolest features of the resort were the free drinks and snacks in the rooms!!

Here are a few pictures from our trip. Delicious spicy shrimp from North Beach Fish Camp:

Weekends Lately (Salad Recipe)

We've had some amazing weekends lately. Lots of swimming, running, playing, and eating.

 We've been having a weekly BBQ at Josh's parents house. I've been in charge of the salad and have tried to make an interesting blend each time. This week I used romaine, cauliflower, walnuts, dried cranberries, avocado, and roasted chickpeas (drain/rinse/dry chickpeas, in a large bowl mix chickpeas with a little olive oil, garlic salt & chili powder, roast at 400 degrees for 30 minutes):

Tell me about your weekend!
