The kids and I are visiting my Mom and sister this summer and we just spent a few days enjoying the sun, surf and sand of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Myrtle Beach has been a family favorite holiday spot since my sister and I were kids ourselves. I was excited to continue this family tradition and take my kids this year. I was even more excited that this was Judah's first time at a sandy beach!

Cute Burlap Beach Bags from HomeGoods

To prepare for our beach trip we got these cute burlap beach bags from HomeGoods. At only $7.99 each, they were very budget friendly and we picked up two of them. Since they were so big and roomy, they were plenty big enough for our needs, even as a family of 5 who tends to overpack!

I'm loving the nautical theme that's everywhere this year. Check out my nautical red, white and blue table decor in case you missed it and you're loving the anchors too.

This beach bag is super cute with it's navy horizontal stripes, "ahoy" typography and red anchor stitched on both sides!

The big rope handles are very soft and add to the nautical feel of the whole bag. Definitely a keeper for years to come!

The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe

We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family more

The second bag we got was the one with a giant starfish embellishment. You can see how big the bags are in this photo of me carrying the starfish beach bag.

The starfish fabric is stitched onto the burlap bag with blue thread and shimmery sequins. I love these subtle little details. It has a more elegant feel than the other one. Both beach bags are very lightweight and because of the material, dry quickly if wet.

We carried 5 towels, my large DSLR camera, 2 floaties (a swim ring and small raft), a few hats, some flip flops, arm floaties and several buckets, shovels and various sand toys. We still had room left over!

Each bag even has a little pocket just inside the handles that's perfect for slipping your phone and/or keys into so they don't get lost in the bottom of the bag.

Be sure to check your local HomeGoods to snag yourself some beach bags like these before your next trip to the beach!
