Wednesday Hodgepodge

Happy Wednesday!

Today I am joining in Wednesday Hodgepodge with Joyce and the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop with Pennie.

1. Do you like the beach? I absolutely love the beach!! Any beach!!! anywhere!! When I traveled for work I was lucky to be near beaches and was able to visit a beach at least every night. Now that I am in nursing school I don't see many beaches but I plan to visit some in the future! My favorite will always be Stone Harbor, NJ. We have traveled there almost every year since I was a baby! This picture is from Stone Harbor last year; I went parasailing with my niece Kyleigh.

How far do you have to drive to get to the nearest beach? Stone Harbor is about 8 hours from my home but so very worth the drive!

Your least favorite thing about the beach? The only least favorite thing about the beach is when biting flies are present. They are only there certain times of the year when the trade winds are blowing a certain way but they are awful!! I HATE bug spray at the beach!

Last beach trip you took? I guess my nursing trip to Nicaragua counts for a beach trip. We could not swim in the water but we did take a boat trip around Lake Nicaragua. It was pretty amazing to say the least!

2. Are you known for making waves or are you more of a 'go along to get along' kind of person? Explain. I like to believe I am a "go along with" kind of person every though I have some tendencies toward OCD and controlling behaviors. I am definitely working on these things as I do not want to be THAT person!

3. A favorite song that in some way references the beach? Toes in the water by Zac Brown Band is my very favorite tune for the beach!!

A favorite book and/or movie with a beach-y setting? I think I love any book written by Kristen Hannah. She has written at least 16 books and almost all have a beach theme1 I love her books!

4.Tuesday is National Simplicity Day...what's a simple pleasure you've enjoyed this week? I have enjoyed sitting in my hammock chair on my porch! It is sooo relaxing and I love every second spent swinging! What's something you could eliminate from your life to make things simpler? I honestly think my life at this poit is as simple as it can be. I have made sure of this because school takes up so much time!

5. What's something you love to do? Do you do it often? Why or why not? I love to read for fun and this summer (one school break) has allowed me to do this a lot! I have read so many books already! I am so happy about that!

6. Insert your own random thought here...I will leave you with the picture of my very favorite beach ever! This is Aruba!! Ahhhhh...

Thanks for hosting this Annie and I hope everyone has a fantastic week!
