Fridays are always fun. Emery doesn’t have daycare and I try to wrap up my work projects as early as possible so we can find an adventure for the day. On this particular day, our to-do list included shopping in Rosemary Beach. How fun! Since I had to stop in to drop off a printing project, I figured we would browse the Merchants of Rosemary Beach and shop for a new bathing suit for Emery.
This girl was a little grumpy when I woke her up from a nap, but a lunch date at Cowgirl Kitchen (and their Mac n Cheese) made it all better.
I love getting the Nachos with extra fresh jalapeño, but today I ate every bite of the Drunken Shrimp Tacos. They are so good I could eat them twice.
With full bellies, we strolled next door to Gigi’s Fabulous Kids’ Fashion & Toys. This store just puts a smile on your face. Bright-colored toys and games overflow onto Main Street and adorable clothes, toys and accessories fill the store. This is Emery’s “Mommy, can we please go in here?” dance.
Emery loved the model train that makes its way around a track on the ceiling. She took time to look at every item in the store – even the boys section – and carefully picked out her favorite swimsuit. Eenie meanie miney mo!
Of course, all the toys in the store are like a dream come true for a kid. Gigi’s even has retro games I remember like a See & Say, View Master and Slinky. I told her to narrow it down to just one favorite.
How could I say no? After Gigi’s, we wandered down to Eastern Green with Emery running her heart out. I love the way everyone just parks their bicycles on the green before running down to the beach (located just beyond the dune here).
As usual, it was a beautiful 30A day. The white sand is magic!
I love this view of the town from the boardwalk with The Pensione Inn (the red building) on the left and The Pearl on the right.
We decided we better finish our errands and hightail it home so we could enjoy an afternoon in the sun. I couldn’t resist peeking into Willow Boutique as we strolled back to the car. The bright prints they have in stock right now are so fun and I love anything Mara Hoffman.
After one super quick stop at Fitz & Emme (where Emery played tea party while I browsed the clothes), we headed home for fun in the sun.
That’s one happy customer and one happy mama!
