Happy Memorial Day/lackluster return from the beach

Hey everyone! I just got back last night from the beach with Phil (my parents decided to stay another week). This is why I haven't posted for awhile and I've been trying to catch up on reading all your blogs!

We went to Kure Beach (right next to Carolina Beach) in North Carolina and had a great time! I wasn't sure how good it was going to be, looking back on my last blog post, but it turned out alright. So part 1 of that last post went well, but part 2 is still undecided. I might as well say that I have to find a board patient (again) so I can get my DH license and it is not happening people. I have 11 days until my exam, have one possible candidate but unsure if will work out because of their job. Gotta stay positive on this beautiful day though! Here's a couple pics from my trip:
Litte Richard's BBQ in Yadkinville, NC - soooo goooood!


Pretty peacock from the "zoo" Phil and I went to

Mossy rocks on the beach

I learned as I was riding home yesterday that my bestest friend won Bigger Liar in the WV Liar's Contest at the Vandalia Gathering! I wish I could have been there! This is the first time since he's been competing in this contest that I haven't been there. Here's a pic of a previous year for ya, Golden Shovels and all!

May 2009

So I am back from the beach and there is hardly any food in the house! I should really go to the store but I really don't feel like doing anything at all... vacations are hard work ya know! So last night for dinner I had remnants of Hot Fries and Snack Mix from the road trip and a WW Ice Cream bar in my parent's freezer. Nutritious right? Today I've had a hamburger bun with ketchup, cheese, and turkey pepperoni for my makeshift pizza. Tonight I'm going to have to do much better and most likely get out of the house! Ha!

Have a happy Memorial Day everyone and I hope you get out there and do something, unlike me!

I live in NC! I wanted to go to the beach but for some reason my office is open on Memorial Day. Good luck on getting your board patient.

That picture of the sunrise looks awesome! And you know what? That moss close-up looks pretty cool too. I had a wonderful weekend myself (and can't believe the week itself is practically over) and have been enjoying this great weather we've been having. Though it's already super hot and humid so I might need to run away once August gets here.
