Ocean (City) Bound

Bags are packed.


Beach gear is ready.


Coolers are stuffed to the brim with healthy goodness.


Some more creatively packed than others.


(Those are eggs, btw.)

Some tragedies have already occurred.


But it wasn’t anything that couldn’t be fixed with some repackaging!


(I had to eat some to make it fit in the container, of course!)

Now let’s just hope the brother remembers to water my plants, and, y’know, feed the dogs…


… and I’ll see YOU on Tuesday (much tanner, I hope!)

Thanks for all your awesome tips for staying healthy at the beach! You should be proud to know that I have packed not one, but two water containers (a reusable cup w/lid plus a standard ol’ bottle) and should hopefully come back to a successful weigh-in on Tuesday. Cross your fingers for me, and have a fantastic weekend!


  1. Have a great trip. I don’t know if I’ve been to Ocean City since beach week after high school! Did you go for that too? I’ve been to Bethany once as an adult, but not OC.

  2. Have fun! I really want to go to Ocean City one of these days. Can’t wait to read all about it!

  3. Woo woo! Have lots of fun and take lots of beach pictures so those of us no where near a beach can be jealous! 😉

  4. Have an awesome time! I have a feeling you’ll be a hit with your healthy snacks, they look so good!

  5. Have fun and good luck with maintaining your healthy eating habits this weekend! You can do it 🙂

  6. Have fun!

    And oooh, I’m going to have to try that Edamame hummus when I next go to TJ’s!

  7. enjoy our trip and the beach! Hope you will have a blast! And get a great tan 😉

  8. have fun!! so incredibly jealous

  9. Have fun!
    I’d love a weekend away at the beach. Unfortunately my other half hates the beach with a rare passion. Particularly in summer. (Clearly, I need beach inclined friends. Anyone wanna hit the NC beach with me? ha,ha).


  10. Have fun and please tan on my behalf as well, I’m looking a little pasty these days!
    PS. I just got back from TJ’s with pizza crust & chicken sausage. I’m totally copying the pizza you made the other day, it looked SO good!

  11. HAVE FUN! Cant wait to see pics! I haven’t been there since 1991 during a college road trip!!

  12. Kind of random, but WHERE did you get those coke bottles? I have one made of sea glass (plucked out of the sand on the beach in Rockaway, Queens) in my kitchen and I’d love to start a little collection, those are great!! Have fun at the beach 🙂

    • You know, at this point I can’t even really remember. I think they were leftovers from a company event that I planned, and I got to take home the extras. They’re cool though, right? Vintaggge. 🙂
