Beach Day #1 – A Success!

Hey everyone, hope ya’ll are having a great Monday! πŸ˜€

We’ve definitely been busy relaxin’ it up around here, beach day #1 a full success…!

Starting with this morning and a fabulousΒ YogaDownload Yoga w/ Weights sessions with mini-Fanatic.

Invigorating and worked those muscles to the core!

The beach was also pretty awesome-tastic today

Sunny and hot, sounds pretty good to me πŸ˜›

Fanatic Dad definitely won super-Dad points for bringing us ladies some ice cold bud lights to enjoy by the shore mid-day too – ummm yes please!

No complaints here πŸ˜‰

After a full day of relaxation and soaking up the rays, it was time for another delicious beach dinner.

On the menu tonight:

  • BBQ garlic chicken
  • Farmer’s market corn
  • Plaintains
  • Wanna-be tabbouleh, take 2

No one in the Fanatic Fam had triedΒ plaintains before, and since ya’ll know how much I adore them, you know what that meant!

It was time to break them into this lovely treat πŸ˜€

Sprinkled w/ some cinnamon & sea salt, then “fried” up in 1 tblsp coconut oil

The verdict?

Fanatic Family loved them!!!!

Even if Dad did call them “delicious fried bananas” πŸ˜‰

The BBQ chicken recipe is one that I learned while visiting the Jersey Shore many years ago, and one that I still make often.

A simple mix ofΒ Sweet Baby Ray’s sauce + 3 large cloves chopped garlic, marinated for about 4 hours and baked at 375F for 30 minutes.

Moist, flavorful and perfect!

There was also some fresh farmer’s market corn which we picked up on our way in yesterday.

And the return of the leftoverΒ wanna-be tabbouleh – I made enough for an army apparently!

This stuff just gets better and better I tell ya!

All served up…

Perfect way to end such a nice day!!!

And now we are enjoying some time on the deck and a lil’ Bachelorette action too – so. much. drama. tonight, ready for it!

Have a wonderful night ya’ll and see ya soon πŸ™‚

    Hot mama at the beach!! Glad you had such a wonderful day!

  3. I’d call that a success, too – especially with a can of beer you are holding there! And you are seriously rockin’ that bikini girl – you look amazing! Love your suit, too. I hope you are enjoying your beach time (heck yeah!) and mmmm Sweet Baby Ray’s! That is my fave BBQ sauce. πŸ™‚ Enjoy the rest of your week girl!

  4. I’m so jealous that you are at the beach – I just got back from 10 days at Myrtle Beach with my daughter (who is almost 5 & LOVED the beach), my parents, & brother. My husband also couldn’t make it…at all. 😦 He just started a new job, plus he hates MB. He would much rather go to Nags Head. And speaking of…totally jealous of your farmers market finds! Next year, we are contemplating a beach trip with just the three of us & that will be on my to do list to do on the way down! πŸ™‚ Where do you stay? The hubby’s boss told him that Emerald Isle is really nice & quiet & so we are thinking about doing that, but def a NC beach & not MB. πŸ™‚

  5. Glad you’re having so much fun at the beach!! Love that bathing suit on you, by the way. Blondes look awesome in pink, don’t we? Hope you’re enjoying the rest of your trip!

  6. I’m with everybody else, you be rockin’ that bikini body girl! Hottie with a body! haha. Glad you are having a blast!
