KT's Refinishing School Spring Break: A Modern Day Wife's Journey

First up in our Spring Break line-up is Lauren from A Modern Day Wife's Journey.

Lauren has quickly become a great blog friend and is always inspiring me with her gorgeous home decor deals and her posts often remind me to be grateful for the little things and for everything I've been given in this life! She and her husband live in sunny Florida with their adorable dog Scooby.  Lauren, take it away...

Hi everyone! It's Lauren here from A Modern Day Wife's Journey guest blogging today for KT's spring break special! This is my first guest blog post so I hope you find it entertaining and fun :-) Thanks KT for having me share a little today with your readers.
I decided to blog today about my favorite things about spring/summer..hope you enjoy!
A few of my favorite things...
I am a huge beach girl being from Florida so of course one of my favorite things about the spring/summertime is being about to go to the beach and have a few tropical beverages and curl up with a good book! My husband and I go to the beach at least two times a year for a little getaway and we love being so close to our beaches here!
of course I love shopping for beach gear such a cute bathing suits from Victoria's Secret and of course stocking up no flip flops and many cover ups and sundresses. I also have a TON of cute beach bags which always come in handy and of course my SPF usually in 30 or higher always!

I can't leave out all the delicious food of the summer now can I??? We love to BBQ, eat watermelon, treat myself to ice cream and then of course a fruity cocktail or sweet tea!
did I just make you hungry/thirsty? ;-)
Also of course I love spending time with my husband, family & friends..I figured I would end my post with some of my favorite pictures of us at the beach on vacations since we always have a blast!
This picture was from our FIRST beach trip together in 2006..we look so young!
This was from a beach weekend we went on our first year as newlyweds we had a great time!
This picture was from 2008 when we went to the beach for the 4th of July with my family and extended was such a blast!
My family has always been a huge fan of taking beach trips! Here is my sister, dad, me and my mom :-)
These pictures were from our 2009 beach weekend with my family we had such wonderful weather!
We love going to the beach..obviously ;-)
 Picture from our 3rd anniversary beach weekend last summer..can't wait to go back in May!
Thanks for reading my post and have a wonderful day!

Aren't those pictures great?  Makes me want to sit on a beach and sip on a strawberry daiquiri with some sand between my toes right now!  

Thanks again Lauren for sharing some of your favorite things and getting us in the mood for Summer. 
Come back tomorrow for more Spring Break goodness!
