Friday Daydreamin': I Need a Beach!!!

Happy Friday!!  We are back ~ our little Friday fun ~ Whose ready to daydream about a place you'd rather be at??

ME! ME! ME!!

All this cold weather has me daydreamin about a much warmer climate.  Now I know, many of you "northern folks" are shaking your heard at my little complaints about cold weather...thinking we Texans don't KNOW cold!  And you're right - but it is all comparable - 40 degrees to me is 10 degrees to you - it's all relative....and all COLD!!!

So who needs a beach?  This gal!!
And as this is the first installment of Friday Daydreamin' in 2012,  I thought it would be fun to feature our button picture from our trip to the beach this summer!!

As a Central Texas Family, we are 3+ hours from a beach.....and not a very pretty one at that.  Let's just say, Texas beaches have nothing to brag about.  We have been wanting to plan a trip to Florida for years and this past summer we did it.  We rented a house and laid (literally) on the beach all week.  No phones, no computers, just the kids, my hubby, and an ice chest full.  It was heaven.  And I can't wait to go back.

New to Friday Daydreamin'?  
This is a weekly meme to daydream about places you'd rather be.  Post a picture from a past vacation, a spot that's on your bucket list, your favorite local park, or the best piece of pie in your city.  The point of the fun is a simple post on Fridays about something that makes you happy - vacation, times with family, relaxation, solitude, a full belly - we want to know.

Simply post a picture on your blog and link it up with us!  Then grab a cup of coffee and be ready to daydream as you visit all the great posts - e sure to give some comment love!!

Can't wait to see what y'all are daydreamin' about today!

We are going to have a little fun next week!  We are partnering with Darling Memories and creating a movie of all the fun 2011 vacation pictures from my readers to highlight on the blog!!  If you have a few fun pictures that you would like to contribute, please email them to
by Sunday, Jan 15.  Be sure to come back early next week to check out the fun!!

I can ALWAYS dream of the beach!

The beach can be so wonderfully fun- especially now that my kids don't seem to freak out about having to wash off in the cold showers at the edge of the beach- used to be total drama

I absolutely love that picture! The kids are having so much fun!

An ice chest full of what??? ;-)

I totally empathize with you and the 40 degree temps living in sunny San Diego. I've always adored your button beach picture. One can never have too much time at the beach.

I miss the beach too. I wish my hometown was closer. We have the best beaches in Oregon!

Jessica said...

That is a great photo! I'm glad you featured it today!

Gorgeous Photo! I've just finished an 11 day beach holiday in Thailand, so I know what it's like to dreaming about being on a gorgeous white sandy beach!
