cheers to the weekend

Cheers to Friday my friends! While I was a deadbeat blogger and didn't schedule any guest posts, Rose was much more organized. Be sure to check out her series of guest bloggers (including moi) and their vacation essentials.

Last year, Mike very nicely gave me a pair of fancy sunglasses that by some miracle I haven't lost. But since I have been known to lose ten a few pairs to the ocean gods over the years I find myself being anxious about bringing them out on the water *champagne problems.* I just wish I would have brought a good old who-really-cares-if-they-get-lost-pair on this trip. That way when we go out on boats, paddle boards, etc. I don't have to feel like I'm either going blind or guarding my shades with my life. Here are five fun pairs under $20 that could do the job.

Lastly, I have been reading a lot this week and I just have to recommend that you all go and pick up The One and Only Ivan. It's a children's book but it's written in a way that is still appealing (and probably more meaningful) to adults....think Charlotte's Web. A beach read that doesn't leave you brain dead. No higher form of compliment from me.

Have a great weekend and be sure to drop by since I have no idea what day it is am in vacation mode and will probably continue posting throughout.
