We have been having a wonderful time at the beach. Each day was nicer than the next. This is the first time I was not itching to go home, as I’m truly a homebody by nature. I would stay another 7 days if I could. The sun is amazing, as well as the emerald waters and white sandy beaches. The southern hospitality has been amazing as well.
When we took walks on the beach we found amazing sand sculptures… This one was particularly cool….
We ended up going to the outlets three times, and each time we found amazing deals. Of course, if you all remember I have a purse obsession, and having an outlet with Dooney & Bourke, Kate Spade, Coach and Michael Kors is a big draw….60% off didn’t hurt either. Of course I wasn’t the only one that found deals. I believe there were several purchases at Saucony and Vera Bradley.
I’ve noticed a big change in how I feel this week. Right before we left for vacation, I had numerous tests to find out why I was having pelvic pain. All tests for major ailments were negative. After much research, I decided to go back to my primary care physician and get more blood work. (I’m not happy with my endocrinologist, but that’s another post). I told her what blood work I felt I needed for my thyroid (based on my research). She obliged, as she always does, and test results for my thyroid came back with further deficiencies. She raised my dose of medicine slightly, and I’ve been feeling much better since. No more pelvic pain. I’ve been also taking a bit of Vitamin D and laying in the sun which really has been most therapeutic.
I’m hoping that by feeling better it will give me more energy to finally, finally lose these extra pounds that are dragging me down. 30 to be exact.
Anyway, we are leaving this incredible place to go home tomorrow. I hope the sun will follow us.
And when I return, I’ll be back to more frequent blogging. I know there is another financial challenge in the works…Right Angela??
