WHAT I BOUGHT
FOR THE HOME
Acacia Serving Tray

WHERE I WENT
Beaufort, SC – Joshua and I visited the charming riverside town for a media trip. We stayed at the incredible 607 Bay Inn that hasn’t yet opened but will be soon! It is the perfect spot for walking to restaurants, shops, and activities. Which are all things we did! I will be putting together a travel guide to share with y’all later this week that will include everything! So stay tuned for that.
Hilton Head, SC – Joshua and I were suppose to spend last week in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for six days. It was to be our big trip for 2020 and longest trip since our honeymoon. To say I was looking forward to it would be the largest understatement ever. Jackson Hole has been at the top of my travel bucket list for quite some time. However, due to Covid-19 we thought it was best to cancel the trip. We were majorly bummed and decided we needed to plan something else – on a much smaller scale and much closer to home. So we settled on Hilton Head, SC – a place I had never been and Joshua hadn’t visited since middle school. We had so much fun exploring the island via foot and bike and soaking up all of the rays on the beach. It is the perfect spot for a low-key, relaxing beach trip.
The Gentleman – so quirky, so unique, so good! Joshua and I both loved this movie! It reminded us both of Knives Out which we also really loved. Matthew McConaughey is of course amazing – no surprise there. I also loved the character played by Charlie Hunnam and thought he was incredible.
Just Mercy – Oh my goodness is Jamie Foxx amazing! He always blows me away but in this movie he took it to a whole different level for me. This is a must watch movie for so many different reasons. Definitely add it to your watch list if you haven’t already. You’ll be left thinking what can you do to help – very inspiring, motivating, and also heartbreaking.
Entourage – I HAD to watch this after we finished the series! The movie didn’t receive great reviews (okay, really horrible ones) but I still wanted to watch. And honestly I am so glad we did. In my opinion, if you loved the series you should love the movie. Just seems like an extended episode and really pulls everything together at the end.

WHERE WE ATE
SOO many spots in Beaufort & Hilton Head – will share them all in a travel guide soon!

WHAT I WATCHED
We finished watching Entourage somehow made it through all of seasons! Both loved it. Joshua was kind of over it towards the final season but I was very committed. Needed to know what happened with the guys! I have also been watching Council of Dads – so good! A really great wholesome show. Reminds me a lot of Parenthood and Brothers & Sisters. Would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a new show to watch!
Still doing FWTFL but definitely took all of vacation off! No fat/protein days or intermittent fasting. Excited to get back to it this week though! Workouts also took a pause during vacation although we did kayak for two hours one day, biked 2 hours one day, and an hour another day. Plus lots of walking! But again, looking forward to getting back to it this week. I have really enjoyed working out at home and am actually contemplating cancelling my gym membership for later in the year.
