Friday Favorites: Vacation 7.26.13

We are at the Lake right now for a week-long vacation with some friends visiting from Colorado. And this week I am a little less happy that it is Friday than a normal week because it means vacation is almost over and that my friends are leaving tomorrow. . . but enough bad thoughts. . .the sun is shining and we are on vacation! So this week, a few of my favorite vacation Lake things. . .

Doughnuts. . . The Bloomer Bakery has the best doughnuts. My  personal favorite – a sprinkled long john.



*fun fact – the Bloomer Bakery made our wedding cakes. <β€”yes cakes! we had a small 2 tiered cake, and then had single round cakes on each of the tables at the reception, each in a different flavor. It. was. the. best.


Water skiing. Especially in the middle of the week where there is little to no boat traffic = no big boat waves.


Baby sunglasses. so. adorable.


Margaritas. There is something about summer and being on vacation that makes a margarita taste amazing!


Working on my summer running tan lines. . .




And seeing our kids being friends. love.


What’s your favorite thing about being on vacation??

  2. Sounds like you’re having a fabulous vacation! Love those runner tan lines!! My favorite point of vacation is when we get to the point, usually a few days in, that we’re completely relaxed and not thinking or worrying about work. Pure bliss!

  5. Sleeping in! And taking naps! And getting to stay up late! Haha, I love vacations, even if we don’t go anywhere…just knowing that I can stay up and not do anything the next day is an awesome feeling! Enjoy the rest of your trip love and eat another sprinkle donut for me πŸ˜‰

  6. My favorite thing about vacation is being able to sleep in and spend time with my husband. So good to get away from the normal routine of work! I also enjoy trying to count things like treading water in the pool as a workout!

  9. Being on vacation is not always easy for me. I struggle to relax and leave my routine behind. That said, as a teacher… I struggle to leave the summer behind, too. Whenever I’m in a routine I don’t know what to do with myself when it gets disrupted.
    Those donuts look YUMMY! πŸ™‚ I love a good custard filled donut. Preferably with lots of custard and some chocolate somewhere on the donut!
