Spring, where did you go?

Hi there, Shopaholic pals! Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

Saturday was the first "official" day of Spring, but honestly you wouldn't know it here! We were all set for a beach day - new chairs, new Lilly beach towel and bathing suit, and a new 55 calorie beer. The forecast was a high of 71-73 degrees. It should have been perfection......but alas, it was not to be.

The day was mostly cloudy, with a few peeks of sun here and there. The wind was blowing, about 15-20 MPH. The temperature couldn't have reached anywhere close to 70. We were in total denial for over an hour, DH and I both refusing to give up on our first full beach day and the promise of a tan line. After I put a towel over my legs, and then a second one over my shoulders, we knew it was a lost cause. Time to come inside.

Shopaholic's lesson of the day - when you see a Spring Breaker walking down the beach in a bikini topped by a North Face jacket, pack it up! You're probably not getting a sun tan anyway!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and be sure to check in first thing Monday morning. Details of a ONE DAY ONLY sale, just for Shopaholic readers! :-)

  2. I would have loved to have gone to the beach too... When I lived in Va Beach, I did the same thing every Spring...run down to the beach on the first nice sunny day with hopes of laying out and catching an early tan. It'll be warm enough soon!!!
