The Coach and I had a fabulous time at the beach this weekend! Destin is a beautiful, beautiful place! We arrived at the hotel at about 11 on Friday night and it was still kind of rainy so we just settled into the room (with our respective bottles of beer and glasses of wine) and checked out the view from the balcony. The Coach is a priority club rewards member so there is always little notes, coupons and certificates when we check into a hotel so I barely noticed the note on the bed when we got in our room. When I finally did pick it up it was a note from The Coach's parents saying that breakfast in bed and mimosas for Saturday morning had been taken care of! So sweet! What a thoughtful thing to do! So when we woke up on Saturday we ordered our breakfast and mimosas and enjoyed every last drop of the champagne. After breakfast we went for a long walk on the beach...the sand was so white! Just gorgeous. And, for the record, not a hint of oil anywhere...
After our walk we got ready and went to lunch at a fantastic pub, I had the shrimp po'boy and it was by far the best sandwich I've ever eaten! After lunch we did some shopping at the outlets and then went back to the hotel to relax. Before dinner we took another stroll on the beach and got some great pictures of the sun setting over the Gulf of Mexico. It was so pretty and serene! Then we went to dinner at The Back Porch. The seafood was outstanding and the drinks were even better :)
We had planned on going to a dueling piano bar after dinner but, unfortunately, the bar was closed for renovations. We were so stuffed from the great seafood that we settled on getting a few drinks in the hotel bar before hitting up the hot tub and pool. It was a fun night!
This morning we took one last walk on the beach and then had a fantastic breakfast at Another Broken Egg. Seriously, if you are ever in a city that has Another Broken Egg you have to go. The food was out of this world!
On the drive home The Coach and I had a long talk about our future with infertility and we also discussed adoption. But that's another post for another day. The overall gist, though, is that we are both tired of infertility and fertility treatments consuming our lives and adoption isn't an option for us. So, where exactly we stand, I don't know...
