Bad Beach Weather = Shopping + Eating!

Yesterday was tons o’ fun with the family. I haven’t seen my whole family in about 2 months, pretty much since I moved. It was nice to get together down the shore this weekend and catch up with everyone. We had plan do to this lighthouse tour all day Saturday, but because of Hurricane Bill, the tour got cancelled and we had to change our plans up a bit.

Due to inclement weather, we hit up the Tanger Outlets in Rehoboth. What else is there do to at the beach when the weather sucks but shop and eat? I got a few things, nothing major. My family loves to shop. It is total bonding time for all!

After a few hours at the outlets, we headed out to dinner. We hit up a new Italian restaurant in Fenwick  Island, called Mio Fratello. It just opened a few weeks ago. It was pretty good, but you could tell they are just starting out. Here is the whole gang at dinner. My dad, me, boyf, my brother, mom and uncle. Beach 101

I enjoyed two nice glasses of Pinot Nior at dinner.

I love going to dinner with my mom because she ALWAYS splits meals with me. I can never decide what I want, and I always have my eye on two or three things on the menu. My mom and I pretty much like the same stuff, so we always get a few things and share. Last night we started out with the crab cakes. They were really good.

We also ordered the Lobster ravioli. They brought us out the appetizer sized one when we ordered the dinner! Man down. So we had to order another round. This was AWESOME. It was made with with champagne sauce and red pepper topping. YUM!

During our shopping time, I enjoyed a new Luna Cookie which I just got in the mail the other day. It is a new flavor that just came out, Berry Pomegranate. It was awesome. I love the combination of blueberries and pomegranate. The icing on top was great too!

I also enjoyed Dairy Queen not once, but TWICE this weekend. I had a twist cone dipped in chocolate last night and on the drive home today, I CRAVED another. So we stopped. It was amazing. I am not usually an ice cream person, but I am on a total ice cream kick right now. Got to find something a little healthier, but this was real good.

On the way home boyf and I also stopped at a farmers market in Delaware. We got all this for $13.00!! Can you believe it? 2 MASSIVE watermelon, a HUGE cantaloupe, 3 cucumbers, 4 squash, 3 zucchini, 4 corn on the cobs and a honeydew melon! I have big plans for these purchases! Stay tuned!
