I get excited every year just before (okay, months before) the holiday season when the grocery store has this available.  This year is even better….I found it in sugar free!  It makes coffee oh so yummy.

Beach Fun

I can’t remember the last time I was at the beach for a whole week.  I think this is a tradition that we might have to start for every Labor Day weekend/week.  One of my favorite things ever is laying on the beach with some tunes on the iPod.

Being here with a little one (Benjamin Buda) is so much fun.  He is having a blast!

I hit this poor little guy with a bocce ball…







Willy’s First Beach Trip

Well, we don’t actually know if it was his first beach trip since he is a rescue.  But, it was our first beach trip with him.  He had so much fun watching all of the seagulls and kids running around.  He even went for a dip in the ocean.

Corolla Wild Horses

Yesterday morning we all headed out on a Corolla Wild Horse tour with Back Country Safari.  We piled into some open air trucks and we were off down the beach in search of the horses.  Click here to read the history on the wild horses.

There is 10,000 acres where the horses are allowed to roam now.  It is pretty neat to drive through all of the dunes and neighborhoods in north Corolla.  There are no roads, only sand.  Good thing we were in a big 4 wheel drive truck!

We saw about a dozen horses (there are only about 150).  We saw a couple of babies and a couple of very pregnant mamas-to-be.  Can you imagine staying in one of these houses and waking up to wild horses out your window.  Crazy. It was such a neat trip and a must if you visit the northern Outer Banks!

We have seen a lot of these sculptures on the beach this week.  People have used the leftover debris from Hurricane Irene to create art!





Happy Anniversary

Yesterday was Michael and I’s first anniversary.  It is hard to believe that it was a year ago when we were tying the knot in Vegas with 60 of our closest friends and family.  Such awesome memories…

Now, I am ready to go back to Vegas!  We were there for 12 days for our wedding/honeymoon…which is WAY TOO LONG to be in Vegas.  But, now I miss it and I am ready to go back.  Maybe next year 🙂

We are in the Outer Banks now for a week vacation.  What a great way to celebrate our first year of marriage.  Michael’s parents are also with us  – who share our same anniversary day of September 5th.  Michael grew up coming to the Outer Banks for summer family vacations.  I am so glad to be a part of the tradition now.  Here are a couple of photos from yesterday.  I even brought some of our left over Elvis sunglasses from the wedding with me!

I love you so much Michael Johnson and I can’t wait to see what the future hold us for!
