Since I already shared most of my adventures and eats of my trip to Delavan, Wisconsin, I wanted to show ya one last thing. Dum da dum dummmm…..my beach bag! Since I am one of the nosiest people ever, I thought y0u might get a kick out of seeing what I lugged around with me while on vacation.
First things first, my straw beach bag which I totally stole from my momma a few vacations ago. I love this bag because you can toss it in the sand and you don’t have to worry about it getting messed up. Poor Ma, I steal all her bags. But anywho, back to the goods:
-Randoms: a super cute striped Turkish towel from the June Pop Sugar Must Have box, the book The Fault in Our Stars, baby wipes and babyganics sunscreen
-Hair and Body: Caramance face and body water(feels amazing to rehydrate your skin after being in the sun), Maui Babe “A Local Secret” after sun lotion, and Garnier Beach Chic(looking for a more natural version of this, any suggestions?)
-Mini Bag: spray hand sanitizer, You Smell wipes, and some Sun Bum for my face and lips.
For me, the combination of all of these things did the trick minus the fact that there is no snacks or water present. Total failure on my part, I always have snacks. Well that sums it up, whats in your beach bag?
How is it that we are coming up on August already? Slow down time, I don’t want you to go too fast but I am looking forward to this weekend. So excited to see Erin and Dan tie the knot, dying to see the Krugs, and can’t wait to shower baby Weberski with lots of love. How bout a post filled with all things marv? I’ve compiled some goodies.
The garden is outta control you guys and I have been having so much fun being the veggie fairy of the burbs. I especially love when peeps I give them to send me pics of what they make.
My unc made this veggie za which looks ahhmaze. Just an average frozen za topped with zucchini, eggplant, peppers, and rutabagas from yours truly. Im telling ya, the garden is just a beast.
Although I have been impatiently awaiting the arrival of my first ripe mater, I have been completely sidetracked with beets. Everything about em.
I made Alton Browns refrigerator beets over the weekend and saved the greens for my smoothies this week. Waste not, want not. I did switch up the recipe a bit by using apple cider vinegar instead of the wine vinegar and raw sugar instead up regular old white sugar. Judging by the amount of them left, I think they were a hit.

My oh freaking my this place rocked my body. Front to back, I was feeling it. I guess I didn’t have to show off all my super sweet front flips and cheerleading jumps but what fun would that be?
Besides for the awesome set up(indoor dodgeball!), I seriously could not get over just how clean it was in there. I generally feel like those types of places are notorious for being nasty and this place was spick and span. I was impressed. They even had a floating second floor with 360 views with big, comfy leather couches. Perfect for parents or nannies like me to take a break from jumping and watch the kiddos. The best part of all this is that my body was torched and I didn’t even realize it was happening because it was so much fun. You have to go!
Hope you had a fabulous weekend.
