Squad is bridesmaids. Panama City Beach Edition!

June 15, 2017

To Jason & Jill Dill congratulations on twenty-five years of marriage!

Thank you for taking SQUAD to Panama City Beach & for giving me the greatest friend of all time! I love you Carlie Jo-Ann Dill! XOXO

So basically this was my favorite day/night of Squadcation because it was vowel renewal night & our first night at pier park!

We coordinated colors last minute and all had either blue or yellow dresses to wear to the wedding which was perfect! Myka and I ran to the Fresh Market for 24 of their finest red roses for Jill & tied the cutest anchor ribbon around it. But I’m getting ahead of myself…..we started our day enjoying our usual lazy behavior at the beach. We came up for lunch which was watermelon and salt!!! After lunch, it was time to get ready for the big vowel renewal surprise! Jason & Jill were out while we started getting ready! We planned out what we would do perfectly down to the exact moment. It all went smooth until we realized I “forgot” the camera in the condo so Jason and Jill had to go down by themselves. When they got down to the beach there was a minister waiting for Jason & Jill along with their close friends Alan & Coral.

We were Jill’s bridesmaids and it was a beautiful experience for SQUAD.

The flowers in our hair were a gift from my mom for SQUAD to wear on the beach and I have to say they were a hit in Panama City Beach. We made a statement at Pier Park and were then known as the girl group of “solid tens” with the flowers. I think the flowers gave SQUAD a great beach vibe and complemented our beach hair.

Jason & Jill are a great marriage to look at as a young person because they love each other with everything they have. I love to hear them talk to each other sweetly and hear their stories from when they were younger. They keep God in the center of their marriage which is exactly as it should be. I am so delighted to know that after 25 years of marriage they love each other more than when they started their lives together.

As for Pier Park in Panama City Beach, my favorite memories were made there. We loved to get a tropical drink from the tiki bar and to walk around sipping them slowly. The sheer amount of gentlemen who complimented SQUAD was enough to drag us back to pier park every night of vacation. This night was the best because it was the flowers and the fact that we were all together again. After one whole year of not being able to actually see each other and after a year of recognizing how significant our friendship actually is.

Now for the fun stuff!!!

Destination Squadcation

June 11, 2017

Squadcation

a trip taken by a good looking group of gals close enough to be sisters, known as a super fun time where memories are made that last forever.

This one is for you SQUAD.

PANAMA CITY BEACH

You were a swell trip that will most likely be the highlight of my summer. I can’t believe God gave me such wonderful friends! I am blessed. After being back for 2 weeks I’m saying why did we even come back. Days of soaking up the sun with my besties, reading stellar books, walking miles upon miles on the sandy beach, games of spike ball, cards at night, the Panama City pier, the flirts, the sun tan glow, the virgin pina coladas, the beach waves, the pictures, the snuggles, and the deep belly laughter that won’t be forgotten. As I said before a treasure.

Day 1 was an early morning where we hit the beach and literally laid out all day. We did hit some waves, take a walk, and snap a few pictures too. My favorite was the long walk down miles of sandy shore.

I read the best book during my travel so make sure you check out the review I write later this week.

NOW FOR THE BEST PART.

SOMEWHERE ON THE BEACH

 Hey y’all! I’m just checking in to let ya know I’ve been MIA because I have been on Squadcation in Panama City Beach. I have literally been living the life of real beach bum. We wake at 9am and hit the beach by 9:15am. We lay out, read, soak up sun, & enjoy each other’s company. I just finished the best book this week called Living Well Spending Less which I will be writing a review on later this week. If y’all wanna good update you can follow me on Instagram @1998miss I am featuring some darling beach looks & my SQUAD. I plan to get some major posts done as soon as I return home but you can count on a major delay as my MacBook is currently experiencing some serious issues. Anyways here’s a few pictures from this week to hold y’all down. Also THANKS FOR ALL THE LOVE ON INSTAGRAM WITH MY PCB BEACH LOOKS. Y’all make me feel so blessed.

HERE’S THOSE PICTURES I MENTIONED
