Home Away From Home



Getting to enjoy my morning coffee here is the best thing in the world


Dropping my phone down those stairs wasnt the best thing to have happen at 8 am though. I thought I was going to have a heart attack until I picked it up to find not a crack anywhere! My $5 Walmart case wins again!

Getting to make breakfast for this cutiepie started my day off the right way


And the fact that she has a sweet tooth like I do is fantastic! Who else would eat a chocolate chip waffle with peanut butter, chocolate syrup and maple syrup first thing in the morning??

We finally headed down to the beach around 2 on Saturday and the weather was perfect! I honestly could not have planned a better day for the beach.



Laying on the beach is one of my favorite things to do. The people watching is the best and you get to work on your tan!
I mean hello... I'm sure people were people watching me too, I was shamelessly taking selfies and also witnessed an old man doing the same thing. I imagine he was taking beach selfies to use on his online dating profile.


I also spent about 20 minuets trying to pee in the ocean.


Yes I just admitted that.

And NO I couldn't do it. I just can't bring myself to pee anywhere but a bathroom. Not in the woods, not in the ocean, not in a lake. Sorry I'm not sorry I'm a city girl and always will be.

After the beach the sister and I made the worst decision ever and went to the grocery store for beer and other essentials. Why was this the worst decision ever? Everyone gets down to the beach on Saturday which means everyone goes to the grocery store on Saturday evening. I honestly have never seen a line so long for the 15 items or less checkout. It was like we were at Disney World. We made it out with beer, peanut m&m's, wine, diet coke, and bagels. Like I said the essentials, but nothing to eat for dinner which resulted in me having to order take out from the best restaurant on the island, Sharky's, which has the best view ever.

And the white pizza is amazing. Paired with a beer and ketchup and you've got a perfect meal (yes I'm weird and put ketchup on pizza, get over it, and yeah I took this after I had already eaten my first piece. I couldn't document the fact that I had 2 pieces of pizza for dinner!)


After dinner I met a furry friend in the back yard and enjoyed another beer on the inlet, perfection,




This morning I spent time with my mom who is the cutest thing ever


Made my sister take a picture of me so "all of pictures from the beach aren't selfies"



Then around lunch it was time to head home.

My weekend with my family was amazing, I wish I could've spent the entire 2 weeks that they were down there with them but you know, some of us have to work for a living haha. There were lots of conversations about God, family, and the good old days. Any time I spend time with my family I'm reminded how lucky I am to share a name with such amazing women.  I'll admit it was really hard to leave but at least my drive home was beautiful



See ya next summer Ocean Isle
