In case you haven't heard, it's been raining nearly non-stop in Tampa lately. Neighborhoods have flooded and people have been photographed floating along main streets in rafts and kayaks and I think I even saw a video of a man catching a catfish on a sidewalk. Life has been full of lots of rain... So as you can imagine, living in a city right outside of Tampa means that I've been subjected to weather that you would expect from Oregon or Washington, not the "Sunshine State". After almost two weeks FULL of rain, the sun finally decided to show up on my husband's day off! We couldn't even believe it and immediately decided to head to head to the beach and soak up some rays!
As always, we decided to stop off and grab some of our essentials to make sure we stay hydrated. We stopped at Albertsons when we noticed they are having an epic anniversary sale and saved big money! Can you believe that Albertsons has been around for 76 years?! Whether you are restocking your pantry or filling your fridge with party essentials, all of the awesome deals going on at my store had me overfilling our cart with goodness!
With all of my favorite sodas, teas, and even water on sale, I couldn't pass up any of it! We were able to buy Diet Mountain Dew for me and Pepsi made with real sugar and two packs of Mountain Dew Throwback for my hubby for $10. Let me say this a little clearer, we bought 4 - 12 packs of our absolute favorite types of soda for only $10! I felt like I won the lottery while I loaded the soda into the cart.
After we stocked up on all of our carbonated essentials, I noticed that my favorite tea was on sale as well! SCORE!
Then hubby pointed out that the Gatorade was on sale as well, so of course we grabbed a few packages of his favorite flavor. So as you can imagine, we nearly squealed with delight when we noticed that Aquafina was on sale too! We love finding a good bargain, especially on our way to the beach!
After completely making sure that our hydration needs were met, it was time to head to the beach and boy was it a glorious time!
We fished for hours, we chit-chatted about our future, we played games, we read books, we giggled, we instagrammed, and we snapchatted. I had a delicious Diet Mixed Berry Green Tea, he had a Gatorade, and we soaked up the sun with huge smiles on our faces.
He even got a little creative with his Pepsi, unintentionally, while we were reeling in a big ol'
fish (side note: we thought we had a big fish until we realized our line was just stuck). Since he reel our "big fish"in while I went to grab the camera to document our capture, he quickly placed his Pepsi on the closest thing next to him. Since the fish didn't actually exist and I had the camera in hand ready to shoot, I started snapping shots of the Pepsi instead and thought they turned out pretty nifty! Who would've thought? He's a master with photo props!
All in all, from getting great deals on all of our favorite beverages to having a good laugh about our "big fish", it was the best day we've had in a long time. It's the little things, and on the beach, with your love, the little things are always the best!
I'm so happy to share that it's sunny in Tampa again today and we are packing up our cooler to head back out to the beach shortly! Although we've heard rumors that the rain may return later this week, we are overjoyed to finally have the chance to run around and catch some rays with our favorite drinks in hand! Maybe we'll even be able to squeeze in a few more beach days before school starts!
What's your favorite thing to do when it's raining outside? Do you love to throw a party, build a blanket fort, or maybe spend the entire day watching movies? Are you a beach go-er when the sun is shining or are you more likely to spend time under a tree reading a book? I'd love to hear how you spent your week, rain or shine in the comments below!
