Visiting Myrtle Beach, SC with The Kids + Being Featured

             Happy new week everyone! If you are new to this blog, welcome!  I'm back from my little vacation. Time goes so fast when you are having fun, but I came back to some wonderful news. Chicfromhair2toe.com was featured as one of the 100 best beauty and fashion blogs by healthymomsmagazine.net. As moms, we don't really have time to take care of ourselves physical and mentally. Between cooking, helping with homework, doing laundry, and working outside the home, sometimes the only exercise we get is scrubbing the bathtub and vacuuming the carpet.  But we still do the best we can to find time to get our hair done and taking good care of  our skin, while trying to stay sane and keep our identity by looking chic from hair 2 toe. I thank Cascia and her wonderful team for acknowledging us. We appreciate you!

              Nobody  loves a road trip  more than I do, as long as I  am not the one doing the driving. It took us about six hours  to drive to South  Carolina  last Thursday. Although  we celebrated  my birthday  while we were there, the whole  trip was about the kids. We wanted them visit a different state and see the ocean.  The closest beach to us is in Savannah, GA, but my husband and I visited Myrtle Beach 3 years ago for our wedding anniversary and we fell in love with it. We just knew that the kids would love it.  We made the trip fun by listening  to music and singing  along, cracking  jokes, and playing games. We only  stopped  once to put gas in the car and rest for a little while. When we got to the hotel, we took our luggage  to our room, then we headed back out to get something  to eat. The kids  spent most of the time either on the beach or in the the pools and the hot tub. I  always  tell people  that I love the ocean  from a distance. So, one day was the most that I could  spend on the beach. While  we were  in Myrtle  Beach , we visited  the state park, Broadway  at the beach,  which is the home of Wonder Works and Ripley's Aquarium. Broadway at the beach is like a big mall on the water. They even have a Victoria's Secret store! Hubby took me there to shop for my birthday. We also visited the boardwalk, where they have lots of games  for children, and one of the water parks on the other side of town.

          Myrtle Beach is a very busy place during the summer. Most of the hotels and motels in our area were booked while we were there. But I saved some money by booking my trip early and using ebates to get cash back. There are 100s of things to do there. We only used our room to sleep, take a shower, and change our clothes. Every day, we were either out to enjoy the water, visit the area, or eat. The food is expensive, as you would expect from any busy place, but it was good. Thanks to Damon's Grill, I had a full course dinner because it was my birthday on the 25th.
