Whew!! What a week!

We had an absolutely fabulous time!!! The weather was perfect -mid 70's all week, the house was beautiful and enormous! Greg summed it all up pretty well - we felt like kids again, we could come and go as we pleased, eat when we wanted, get up in the morning when we wanted, it was awesome! It was also so wonderful to have some precious alone time with my hubby! So here are some pictures to sum up the week:

The house we rented (thank goodness for "off-season"):

The view from the balcony of the house:

We took at least two walks on the beach everyday - collected a lot of seashells for the boys:

They had these huge Adirondack chairs all over and Greg decided to take a break in one:

Yes this is me getting a tattoo! I have wanted to get this one for awhile -it is in Hebrew from the Song of Solomon, and it says "I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine". While we at the tattoo shop, Greg decided to get the same thing on his inner arm. So we went back to the shop (Island Tattoo) on Wednesday and had a Tattoo Artist by the name of Dave Bein work on our tattoos. He was amazing, he is one of only 35 Tattoo Masters in the whole country! He drew the symbols freehand and was so precise, very funny and nice too! It only hurt a little at first, but then you get kinda used to it, just stings:

And this is the final results:

Finally a few pictures of us at the house (so glad we packed the tripod):

I was even able to get some scrapping in - the house had a great big dining room table, so I just left my scrap stuff out all week and worked on stuff here and there. That is it for now, hope you all had a great week! I will pick a winner for the RAK tomorrow! Have a great Monday!

OH almost forgot, MMM blog post is up, go check it out!
