Life's a Beach

It's too bad it can't always stay that way... or I guess if I lived in a beach chair by the pool with my own waitstaff, I wouldn't appreciate it.  But, it sure was glorious this weekend!  Matt and I got away for a much too short beach weekend at the Don CeSar in St. Pete Beach.  I spent much of my childhood on the very same beach, so it was funny to be staying in a hotel there... let alone the Don!  They know how to class it up.  I definitely recommend it for a nice get away.  We spent most of the weekend laying in very comfortable lounge chairs, ordering cocktails (virgin pina colada for me, of course) and lunch poolside, and relaxing.  Most of my family lives in St. Pete, and I actually didn't even see anyone except my cousin and his fiance who came to visit us for a bit.  There just wasn't enough time.  He has an awesome camera and is a fantastic photographer, so we were going to snap some maternity photos but the weather wasn't great and frankly, I looked like crap (I did not get myself picture ready because I refused to leave the beach/pool... Matt was with me on that one).  We were originally going to see them around sunset, but we didn't get to experience any sunsets while we were there due to some crazy fog.  Bummer.  Thankfully, we had good sun on Saturday until about 4 and on Sunday until about 2.

Sweet maternity suit... the tan legs are an illusion.

The life!


Chatting by the beach... the fog didn't scare us off!

Fake smile.  Matt looks hot though.  :)

Ha!  Check out that belly!  34w4d
Who cares that it's foggy... I just wanted to lay on my belly.  It wasn't as comfortable as I hoped, but I did it!

Crazy fog.

Our prime spot for Sunday... got a few hours before the fog rolled in.
We really enjoyed the time away, although it truly went by way too quickly.  Two days just wasn't enough!  I'm thankful that we were able to get away and enjoy some time just the two of us before our little pumpkin decides to arrive.  It won't be long now...
