Memorial Day Weekend

For those of you not familiar with what John's up to these days, he's crazy busy with his very own start up which is awesome......but......it means he didn't even know Monday was a holiday, soooo I went to Long Island with some friends. The original intent was to go fishing but my friend and I just ended up chilling out on the beach while the boys fished from the beach.
I haven't really experienced much of the beaches up here since my skin does not love the sun so much. We were on the North Shore which apparently is more rocky but I thought it was great. I've never seen so many shells all over the beach!
And of course, you can't be on the water in the NE without seeing sailboats.
The day turned out to be pretty great but it certainly did not start out that way. On my way to my friend's apartment I tripped on an uneven piece of sidewalk and sliced my toe open :( It was probably the most I have ever bled in my life! I know that sounds dramatic but seriously, I cut my big toe and there was so much blood in my flip flop that it started bubbling up in between all of my other toes. Probably way too much info, sorry! I considered stopping to take a picture but I was walking around lost trying to find my friend's apartment so it didn't quite make the list of priorities.
Anyway, I did get a picture of the sadness once we made it to the beach. This was my attempt to keep sand out of my open gash. Yes, I wrapped part of a trash bag around my toe :)

The rest of the weekend was pretty uneventful after that, ran a few errands, slept in late and saw the new Men in Black. Good weekend overall, now I can't believe June is here!

Weekend in Arkansas

I went down to Northwest Arkansas for a quick trip last weekend and it was so great to spend some time with friends and family and meet a new addition to the group :)
Sweet baby Wren was sooo precious!
I spent as much time hanging out with friends as possible and of course eating cheese dip :)
So many adorable babies!!!
My mom and sister even drove up on Saturday to see me which was awesome!
We all hung out at the Lake Fayetteville park on Saturday and I got to enjoy some greenery, definitely something I miss living in a gigantic concrete city :(
We even did a little swinging :)
It was a FANTASTIC trip, so laid back and so great to see everyone, if only it were a little longer!
