Welcome Back

We just got back from a trip to Southern Pines, NC and this is what I have to look forward to today.

I love this area where Sweet Hubby used to live and every time we go to visit I daydream about living there. But then I remember how spoiled we are by summers in Indiana and how living in a place where the average summer high temperature could cook eggs on a sidewalk and I think, well maybe we could find a quaint little town like that in the Midwest.

While there we got to visit with family, do a little antiquing, go out for dinner at our fave Italian restaurant,go to our nieces 5th birthday party, ride a camel, have ice cream at our favorite old fashioned ice cream parlor, fall in love with Shrimp and Grits and play on this super fun inflatable slide. Worth every penny it cost, mostly because my pennies didn't pay for it! I notice a lot of the fun we experienced was centered around food. That might explain why I will be spending a good portion of my week on the treadmill.

Hope you all had a happy week and I hope to catch up with you soon.

  1. It sounds like you had a wonderful time. That waterslide looks like a lot of fun. However, I'm sure it would groan if I approached it. haha

    Welcome back home.

  6. Sounds like you guys had a wonderful trip -- and the slide, wow! I'd better hide this post from the kids before they start begging for one. ;) Welcome back home!

  7. My husband is from a wonderful town in SE Virginia, and I love to visit but couldn't take the heat all summer. I'll take a Minnesota summewinter any day over a Virginia summer!

  9. I live in a quaint little town in Indiana now but am a "child of the south" (Virginia) and miss that lifestyle. But, I LOVE being near Chicago and within a few hours drive of Indianapolis. But, oh how hot it has been in our quaint little town for the past week. Love your blog!

  10. My Virginia is SW, in the southern end of the Shenandoah Valley. Lovely seasons none of which are harsh. Very little humidity. Except for the fact that Roanoke has no major airline, I'd go back! Our ideal living climate was La Jolla, CA but got really bored with year-round perfect weather after awhile!
