Beachy Keen

In exactly ONE WEEK I'll be standing on the pier (with my red, white and blue lei on) in the Naval Base waiting for the USS Enterprise to dock and release 5,000 sailors and marines -- one of which is my big brother!

We are going to leave Blacksburg on Wednesday to hit up the Short Pump area to get some shopping done, spend the night, and then head to the Va Beach area on Thursday morning so we can go to the beach!

We used to live in Virginia Beach and pretty much the only thing I miss about it is being so close to the water. I absolutely LOVE the ocean. I think that I (along with many other people) could spend all day every day on the beach if I could!

Since Blacksburg isn't near the beach, I have brought the beach to Blacksburg. My bathroom is coral color and decked out in beach things. Now, my room will join. It started out as a light blue (actually pretty beachy to start with) but I am going to repaint it Gold Buttercup this weekend!
Then, I'm going to start looking for more beach decor to add to the room, keeping it fun to look at but still simple. I will update with some pictures later :)

Have y'all seen any cute beach theme decor anywhere? I'm going to try and find some pieces in Short Pump! I can't wait!!

Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach--waiting for a gift from the sea.
