Happy Monday and Memorial Day! We are so thankful for all of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. We hope everyone has a chance to reflect on the meaning of today and enjoy time surrounded by family and friends.
Rach and I are enjoying one of our favorite times of the year - when the entire family gets together and spends a week away on vacation. It's a time to catch up, rest, laugh like crazy and connect, not to mention it's always at a surprise location.
Our calendars are all crazy, we're spread out across the country and we don't always see each other for holidays. So each year we all find a week, save up, and take a trip together. Each Christmas morning mom and dad give us a postcard to reveal that year's location. This year - GRAND CAYMANS!
I haven't been on a beach trip in two years and it got me thinking, what are some must-haves for the beach? After getting some things together (I'm an early packer), I compiled a list of must haves that I think everyone should have before they leave for the beach.
1. Mosquito Repellent Bracelets
If you are anything like me, then you can't stand the smell of bug spray. It's a necessary evil though, so when I saw that there were cute little bracelets I thought it was a much better option!
2. Texturizing Spray
Texturizing spray is awesome for when you are at the beach! Your hair naturally wants to have a wave because of the sea salt and this is that extra boost for those waves! Enjoy not having to do your hair!
You always need a koozie, even if you are just drinking water! It will keep your drinks cold and you refreshed. Wouldn’t it be fun though get some fun custom made ones for the entire family?
4. Ziplock Bags
I know what you are thinking, boring! But these will save you so much trouble. We always put our phones, food, jewelry, etc in little ziplock bags to keep them safe from water and sand. You will be amazed at what a difference maker something so simple is!
5. Beach Coverup
You knew I had to throw something fashionable in there! But seriously, putting dry shorts over a wet body is the most uncomfortable thing EVER! Why not get something easy to throw over your swimsuit? I love oversized shirts for coverups or little rompers.
What are your beach must haves? Comment below and let me know!
Enjoy your Memorial Day and take a moment to remember those who have given their lives to protect our country.
