Who doesn’t love bugs and new wheels?!

We snuck away for an impromptu trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, specifically Duck, NC, for a few days. Despite living in Virginia for almost 10 years now (I HATE to admit that), and hearing wonderful things about the beaches of NC, I’ve never been. A few weeks ago Nate (the husband is named!) found out he would need to go down there for a work meeting, and we decided to make a weekend of it.

I have to edit almost 250 pictures taken in 3 days, hopefully I got some good enough to show off. We climbed a lighthouse, found crabs on the dunes, saw wild horses, rode bikes, and all around had a fantastic weekend. We were even joined by a close friend of ours for part of the trip. I have to say, I think vacationing with friends should be done more frequently (I’m looking at a couple of people specifically – you know who you are!). I’m sunburned, exhausted, and was attacked by mosquitos and biting flies, but had a ton of fun, and can’t wait to do it again.

We brought Lucy with us as I’m pretty sure she loves nothing more in life than the ocean, so I couldn’t, in good conscience, leave her behind.

And the evening before we left, my new bike arrived.
I haven’t had a chance to ride it yet, and I can’t wait!

What did you all do this weekend?
