Ready for my {long-awaited} weekend with the girls!

HOLLAA! HOLLAA! With Labor Day weekend approaching, I can't help but feel anxious and excited about spending 3 days at the beach with a few of my most fav ladies!

Labor Day was always one of those holidays that I never really knew what it was all about {kind of like St. Patty's}. So why do we have a Labor Day? 

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. {source} As a hard working American, myself, I appreciate the tribute AND the extra day off.

Traditionally, Labor Day is celebrated by most Americans as the symbolic end of the summer. In high society, Labor Day is (or was) considered the last day of the year when it is fashionable for women to wear white. {source}  But, we'll have to see about that... ;)

Each year, I plan a beach trip and it usually falls on this particular weekend. Why? Well, because we always have Monday off- duh.  This year, we are headed eastbound and down to Sunny Pensacola, Florida!
With a strip of kitschy motels, surf shops and dive bars, I'm sure we'll find some kind of trouble to get into. Maybe we'll even get matching airbrush shirts (you know you had one)!  

My focus, however, will be on chillaxation and good times with the girls.

There are only a handful of things I need to make this happen:

First and Foremost- DRANKS!
...if you like Pina coladas....

And the essentials:

 the perfect bikini

the biggest shades I can find ;)

 a hat

some good reads

and a cute bag to tote it all in

{the gals}

And eventually, I'll need food at some point. But, really, I need to prioritize.  In the end, this is all that matters:

Wishing you all the bestest, safest and laziest Labor Day!
