Celebrated 3 years: Beach Style

Well ladies it wouldn't be an understatement to say this past weekends was one of the best weekends in a really really LONG time!!

I laughed till I cried and I cried till I laughed all in the same weekend!

Friday: Brian didn't get off till after 5:30 so we got a late start, debated if we wanted to eat by the house and head out or wait.. We really wanted to see the sun set and just be by the water so we headed on down to Galveston and went straight to:
Well known for their amazing Hamburgers! Of course Brian got a huge plate of fried sea-food!

Us leaving The Spot

back track a minute:
on the way down Brian really wanted a fountain coke (if you know him, you know his situation, ha) so trucking down beltway 8 there is really no fast food.. So I did some thinking and remembered there was a Buc-ees off 521, right before 288, once again if you know him, you know Buc-ees is his FAV!!! So I hurried and exited to suprise him and go to Buc-Ees by Pearland.. We pulled up and I told him I had seen a new Buc-ees shirt I had been wanting.. So I trucked on in, he got his drink and I got my shirt oh and we got the new Flavor Reds Starbursts that Crystal and Brian had been telling me about.. And we were back on the road!

Every time we head down 45 we talk about this sign....
DeLany (with a cap L) is my future last name, now that's some skills.. driving and getting this pic :)

Friday after the spot: Were driving down the sea-wall headed to the high rise and stopped at a light in front of us a Maroon Durango SLAMS into the back of a stopped car, full of people including kids.. the guys quickly runs the light and takes a left on the side street.. Brian being the road rage person he is and just being caring I guess, speeds off to follow this guy, along with another truck (luckily the other truck went first then us) so we follow this guy through about 7 turns, call 911 and head back to the scene.. The guy who drove off was flying down these back roads, his radiator was hanging out the front and he was leaking fluid everywhere, he wasn't gonna make it long.. So we head back to the scene and give the police the info and the lady who got hit was so thankful for us, she was so sweet.. We decided we didn't need to get too involved so we gave what we knew and left... Talk about adrenaline racing!!!
Luckily everyone in the front car was ok :)

So we finally arrived at the high rise

Tad bit windy 25 floors up!

Brian in his new knarly surf shirt I got him, trying to keep his eyes open with the bright flash! haha!

Let the relaxation begin!

We love showing each other YouTube videos we've seen, ha! We did this for like an hour, no joke!

Night view!

Saturday Morning View:

After getting ready, no need to do the hair, too windy and humid!

Downstairs in the high rise, headed out for breakfast

Millers Landing for Breakfast, Erin over at Little Diva Diaries was NOT joking when she told me to go there for the BEST French Toast!

After breakfast we headed to the Strand for some shopping

I love the buildings down there!

My FAVORITE Surf Store, Jammin' The gold Plaque is the water line of Ike in the store

After like 5 years of wanting a pair of the original Reefs, I finally found a pair I liked! I did not want the plain black, brown, or baby pink ones they've always had!

I also purchased a Tervis Tumbler Mug and Cup for my mom and Brian's dad for Fathers Day, 2 magnets about marriage, and another Endless Summer Shirt, I think I have enough Endless Summer stuff...

This post is getting long so I'm just gonna run through the rest of the weekend...

Went to East Beach to see if the Sand Castles were still up from last weekend, they said they normally wash away within 2 days, that's a lot of work for that short time, ha!

Pizza on the Seawall

I went Poolside and let Brian go wade fish for 3 hours... Yes I'm the best Fiance in the world, haha!
Wedding mag, water, and ipod player = one content girl!

My view while laying out, love the Infinity pool

Thanks again Erin for the great recommendation, by far the best Guac I've ever had! Brian said " no matter what I'm coming to eat here every time I come to Galveston"

We ♥ Mexican Food!

Late night pool, well late night for us is like 10-11, ha!

After pool snack

and comedy central, good times!

Sunday morning Brian headed to Sea Wolf park to wade fish while I slept in and then cleaned up the condo, not that we made a mess just washed sheets and towels and whipped things down.. I asked Brian to be back around 10:30 for breakfast and this is what he came back to!

Before eating, after crying my eyes out...

3 yr..7 7 7 (when we started dating, our lucky # :))
If you know me, I don't cook.. so this took a lot of effort, haha!

Headed to the beach after breakfast, it was neat having our own little private area on the beach where only the high rise residents were..

He skim boarded

I attempted to skim board..

We played with the disc thing again

We attempted to build sand castles........

we headed back up to the condo, finished cleaning, showered, packed up and headed to the Strand for lunch and some more walking around

A couple funny stories:

* Brian loves going to Pet stores, so we googled it on Saturday after the strand and tried heading to a few... First one was no where in site, closed down so headed to the second one we found on Google called Pet Heaven, sounds cute right? Not so much! Pull up, its a groomer who berries pets, we laughed SO hard but felt so bad at the same time, haha!!

*Sunday while attempting to build our sand castle, I'm just bee bopping a long going from wet sand to dry sand to etc.. bending down over and over, well guess I stretched out the clasp on my bathing suit top too much next thing I know, I bend down to get more sand and my top falls to the beach, I screamed and covered myself, Brian freaked, he thought I was hurt and he said put your top back on, I said how, I'll have to uncover myself, his hands were buried in the sand, he rushed over and helped me put my top back on, luckily there wasn't many people right around us but I'm sure people looked down from a ways down when I screamed, oops, oh well! haha! I'm not a good story teller, this was hilarious in person!!!

Thanks for all the well wishes and congrats :) I look forward to many many many more years with my loving fiance!

Looks like y'all had a great time! I love all the pictures! (If only i could get better about taking pictures) I got your post about the weight thing and It sucks for me for the fact that I'm not able to work out due to a heart condition I have but more so because I love all the "Bad" foods! I love to eat! haha I really think it comes down to your own self esteem AND DESIRE to make a change. I complain all the time but I just keep putting the "Dieting thing" off....... Might I add, you look so happy in your pictures! Glad you had a good time!
