And I’m back. Monday after vacation is right up there with a Monday after the holidays – it just seems wrong. But I’ve had six days off work so here we go…
We had the best week. J and I left Friday morning and took some back roads to North Carolina, where we stayed the night. Our hotel was next to an Outback, so we celebrated by drinking a million beers while waiting for my family. Saturday we woke up early and headed to Hilton Head.
Nine people in a beach house makes for a great time. The weather was excruciatingly hot (as it was everywhere!) but there was a nice breeze on the beach. The guys went fishing and played golf, while the ladies spent some time in the waves. We ate lots of seafood and pizza and dessert. I ate two bagels and white bread (#YOLO). My niece learned about solar power, Michelle Obama, and a few new words (sorry, sis).
I couldn’t get my laptop to connect to wireless the entire week which was a blessing in disguise. I didn’t read blogs and didn’t respond to comments. I expected to come back with lots of ideas, but in reality, I came back with 339 emails and 5 extra pounds and no clue where to go next. Instead, I read The Girls and A Window Opens. LOVED both. I didn’t check my work email once, so please say a prayer for me this morning! 😉
It’s hard leaving my family after a week together, but I can’t wait until next time! Luckily my sister and her husband just moved to Hilton Head so I see many visits in our future. 🙂
I came back to all of my NSale items which made the transition a little easier. We spent Sunday doing laundry and relaxing, and, as if I haven’t gained enough weight lately, I made zucchini bread and black bean dip. Fingers crossed for an easy week!
How was your week? Weekend? Let’s do this.
