Happy Happy Friday, friends!!

And this past weekend, we headed to Hilton Head Island, SC .. just the two of us!

It was wonderful!

Okay, before I get started, a lot of you really .. REALLY .. love you some HHI!  I started sharing on INSTA STORY & before I knew it, y'all had flooded my DM's with ALL the recommendations .. AND WE THANK YOU!!!!

We arrived late Thursday night & crashed because who got to sleep in on Friday!?!  


The answer is us.

And any good parent takes advantage of that! 

We grabbed breakfast at a small local place called Southern Coney.  They had me at the "Best Pancakes Ever" sign … & I'm here to tell you, they didn't disappoint!!  Evidently I was enjoying those pancakes, too, because I took zero pictures.

No worries, we make up for them in the next 34 selfies you are about to see!
Later on, we had lunch at Truffles [a recommendation from a sweet follower] & it was amazing!
Best quiche & fried pimento cheese .. EVER!
We headed to Harbour Town after lunch …
Where we walked out on the pier …
Shopped at some of the neatest little shops.  We even just sat there, rocking in rocking chairs, watching boats in the marina! 

If that's not a perfect example of ten years of marriage, then I don't know what is.

After spending time in Harbour town, we went back to the resort to freshen up for dinner!
We stayed at THE SONESTA RESORT & we would stay there every time! The staff were amazing, it was clean & the food was delicious! 
And so were the desserts!
After dinner, we walked out on the beach just in time to watch the sunset.
Later that evening, we decided to go down to the hot tub … AND WHY NOT!?!
On Saturday morning, we sat by the pool & enjoyed brunch .. with live music which was totally cool!
We stayed poolside all day & we may or may not have taken naps out there.
Listen, I love my babies, but MAMA NEEDED THIS!!

Psssst … I found that hat at Dollar General for $5.  FIVE dollars!
We decided, after several of you recommended it, to try Hudson's on the Docks & gracious y'all … we LOVED it!!
The seafood was amazing …
But let's just talk about that peanut butter pie.
Oh my heart!
And the dinner view was just beautiful!
We got back to our resort late, but before we decided to call it a night, we went & found the ice cream bar.
And we enjoyed it by a fire!

After ice cream & dancing .. at a wedding we were NOT apart of … nor invited to … but no one said we couldn't stand near by & dance .. especially if it was at your resort, we walked down to the beach.
And attempted one last selfie before heading home.
Major fail.
But this may be my most favorite picture of the whole trip.

Just me & my hubby, reminding each other why we fell in love in the first place, laughing uncontrollably & dancing .. even though we are terrible at it.

Girls, date your man.  Go on the trip with him.  Those babies & YOU, will be just fine for a few days.  Honestly, I wish I wouldn't have waited so many years to leave my kiddos so I could just have one on one time with Dan.  Gosh, we had the best weekend together.

If Dan said "it doesn't matter to me what we do, I'm just so excited to have you to myself for a weekend" one time, he said it 39 times.  And for him to be so excited to just get that time with me & express that, meant the world to me!
