Grown-up & Girl Bonding Time

Yesterday, Linds and I had a morning and early afternoon to do absolutely whatever we wanted. Our husbands gifted us some “grown-up girl bonding time.” (I’m so bummed I have no pix of the two of us!) We did not delay! We headed out at 8am for breakfast and then went over to Historic Beaufort. We perused shops, bought some goodies for the kiddos, splurged on a few little trinkets, a dress and a side table. (I’m stinking excited about the table, but I have a little buyer’s remorse, too.) It was so good to have an adult conversation and just mosey around at our leisure. The only potty breaks we had to take was for ourselves. We were going to take the whole day for ourselves, but then, we thought about the guys packing up the kids and cleaning the house to leave by 5pm. My first thought was not selfless, it was ” something will definitely be forgotten.” Then, came the guilt. “It’s not really fair for us to leave them with that huge task.” Then came the regret, “it’s our last day at the beach and we really didn’t have much family time.” So, we went back early to help clean and pack and then we got everyone into their bathing suits and headed back to the ocean for one last hurrah! It was so worth it. Then, last night we introduced Marcus and Lindsey to our favorite restaurant of all time (well, mine, at least): The Chef and the Farmer. As I like to say, don’t go there because you’re hungry. Go to experience food....
