The Day of Three Iced Vanilla Lattes

I didn't have the most pleasant wake up call. My dad and brother had to wake up at 6 o'clock this morning to make it to the baseball diamonds by 7. This, in turn, woke me up as well. I fell back asleep...only to hit my alarm when it went off at 8. I ended up waking up sometime around 8:30, thus missing the only suitable time to rent and ride bikes with my friend. Bummer!

Then, when I went to use my Macbook, the programs would open for a second and would close immediately and I couldn't shut down my computer. It took an hour long phone call with somebody from Apple (Sandeep, you are my homeboy for life now), it started working again, but I still have to take it to the Apple Store. Womp womp.

I am not exaggerating (okay, perhaps just a tad) when I say that it was approximately 8,000 degrees outside today. The sun was beating down on the beach and there was virtually no breeze at all. My friend and I lasted out in the sun for about 3 hours before we threw in the towel (literally) and decided to turn in back to our rooms until dinner time. That's when I got my first latte and had a wonderful conversation with a nice fellow coffee addict about my J. Crew earrings and Kate Spade in general. I read with my latte on the balcony of my room and just enjoyed the comfort of the shade and relaxing sound of the waves rushing onto the sand.

I am not pleased with my sunburn covering a majority of the right side of my body. And yes, I did slightly dress up for a latte run. It's my thing.

Completely staged pictures are by my lovely mother, who took approximately 20 pictures only for 2 to come out decent. Good job, mom. You tried.

After my family freshened up, we headed out to dinner with three other families to a seafood restaurant. It was only a block or so from our hotel and everybody was raving about it.

Since I don't like seafood, I opted to get grilled chicken with some mashed potatoes (my weakness) and some steamed broccoli so I could seem somewhat healthy.

My mom and I walked around after dinner, popping into some stores to check out what they had (and return my cracked Kate Spade tumbler, boo!). I ended up picking up a print of a map for my dorm next year and got another iced latte because one just isn't enough.

After going on a manhunt for a boy on the team, I made my mom buy me another latte as I couldn't go into the same coffee shop with the same two employees three times in less than 5 hours. I'd seem like a complete nut!

And since I'm a huge narcissist, here are some photos of myself (and my eyebrows, they are two separate entities).

Sunday is our last full day here (and the last day of the tournament, of which I have not attended a single game of) and I'm both sad and relieved. I love being on the beach and having no responsibilities for a while, but I've been getting so anxious to do work and start preparing for school! I also miss my puppy and cuddling with him. I guess I'm going to have to get used to that again.
