Vacation in Top Sail, North Carolina

   Last Monday night we made the trek down to Top Sail, North Carolina to spend the rest of the week with family at their lovely house on the beach. We cooked, we bathed, we biked, we ate to our hearts desire, and I had probably a few too many G&Ts (gin and tonics for you who don't abbreviate on the daily). It was just what I needed after the past few crazy months!  There is nothing like falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing on the beach!  Here are some instagram picts I took throughout the week.  I wish I could have snapped more but isn't that always the case?  Best just to live in the moment!

Looking out to the beach from Erich's house.

  This family is serious about smoking food!  They are always talking about what they can smoke next.  On this trip his dad made smoked burgers stuffed with pimento cheese that his mom prepared.  Erich smoked fresh coconut for one of our pizzas on Wednesday night, and there was talk of smoking crabs, but we decided it was too inhumane for the little guys.   


A trio of mousses in one scoop!

 Aug dog came to the beach! Love this guy!

 Sunrise view from our room the day we left. Beautiful!

Gah going to work tomorrow is not going to be easy.  Talk about a serious case of the Mondays!
