the Friday five — link up #22

Friday, May 31, 2013

Happy Friday y'all! Did you know that my favorite number is 22? Well, it is, and this might be one of my most favorite Friday five posts, yet. Why? Cause I'm blogging from the beach, y'all!! So today I'm going to tell you my five favorite things about the beach.

the Sowell life

the Sowell life's Friday five...

1) {The Sun} I'm no longer the white pasty girl anymore. I've officially got a pretty decent tan, y'all. Of course, I have a long ways to go until I get the desired color I would like to have, but enjoying getting it a little bit at a time.

2) {The Relaxation} Yep, we've been getting some great relaxing time, but we've still been getting up early every morning. We've also been going to bed pretty early, too. 

3) {The Food} If you're interested in eating at chain restaurants, the beach is not for you. You'll have to get off of Beach Blvd to find a Micky D's or Chick-Fil-A, but who comes to be the beach for that kinda food anyway? 

4) {The Sound of the Waves} We've had some rough seas here lately, but it's makes for some really big waves. And when they come crashing in... it's music to my ears.

5) {People Watching} Don't judge cause y'all know you do it too! But seriously, it's so much fun to watch the little kids playing or getting in the ocean for the first time. And then you have those awkward people who aren't sure how to lay out, or even apply spray sunscreen. We've gotten quite a few good laughs in this week! 

Now, who's ready to link up?!! Thanks for stopping by, linking up, sharing the link up on your blog and on twitter! I appreciate y'all spreading the word more than you'll ever know!!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Be sure to check out the Foodie Friday on the AlabamaWomenBloggers website! I'm blogging a quick and simple, yet really yummy recipe for a summer dessert.


  1. I hate chain restaurants, finding new local places is one of my favorite things. Sounds like you guys have had a wonderful week. I've been loving all the pics on IG! Safe travels home.

  2. Try people-watching late at night at a Wal-Mart sometime...I don't know if it is more interesting or uncomfortable. :)

  3. Your IG pictures have been relaxing me all week! :)

  4. This just might be the best Friday 5!!!! I can't wait to hear all of your beach stories when you get back!

  5. I'm loving your vacation! So good seeing you two have such a great time! The food looks amazing!
