Cheers to the weekend! We thought we’d kick off this beautiful, sunny day on the water! What better way to spend a Saturday? Load up the cooler, grab your bestie and hop on the boat. Time to cruise away to an island for awhile!

All aboard. We took the boat to one of our favorite locations, Masonboro Island. This is where many people come and spend the day with friends and family while enjoying the beachy views.

St. Patty’s Day Peppermint Treat

February 10, 2017 — by Chelsey Bishoff

IMG_4810-960x640.jpg

Mmm salty sweet goodness. Need a quick snack to bring over to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your friends? Here, we have just the treat! This is one of our all time favs and is sure to bring in the party spirit.

What you will need:

1.) White chocolate morsels

2.) Pretzels

3.) Peanut M&M’s (can be substituted with regular)

4.) Popcorn

5.) Chex cereal

6.) Some green sprinkles, green food dye and peppermint extract

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Start by putting the full bag of white chocolate chips in a pan over medium heat. Add some oil to keep it from sticking to the bottom and to keep it smooth. Begin to add in the green food dye. Then, add the peppermint extract. Use this very carefully. (It is very strong) We added only about 2 drops.

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Continue to stir until totally smooth. Then start to add your ingredients one by one.

Beach Yoga Flow

IMG_4157-960x640.jpg

Relax and free your mind. Getting started with a new year and new priorities can be a lot to load on your plate and can take a toll on your body and mind. It’s important to set goals, but dont forget to take care of yourself along the way. Did you know most of the stress we endure is brought on by ourselves? We decided to un-fog our mind and let free for a bit during an evening beach yoga session.

Stretch + release.Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Pay close attention to the air flowing into your lungs and be intentional with your breaths.

Stay focused. Take in the good + release the bad energy.

Take moments just to be still and give yourself time take it all in. Feel the breeze, smell the salt.

At the end of the day, go over what you are grateful for. Make a mental list of all the good thats to come your way and how you will achieve just that. Taking time for yourself is so important, yet we often forget to take a minute and just breathe. We encourage you to get moving this week and stay active, or just take a moment to enjoy the life all around you. Namaste.
