Beachy Keen


Welp, we’re back from our beach trip at Topsail Island.


I have to say, I was actually pleasantly surprised at the NC beach. It was pretty nice. The water (as you can see) threw in some pretty big waves the whole time and the tide was in I think due to that storm a little bit south of us. But regardless, it was still  a really good time.

We tried to go out to the beach Saturday afternoon when we got there but sadly it was pretty windy and there were storms in and out so we were there for a very short time before we headed back to the campground and just hung out and did some grilling and such.

But, Sunday we had some amazing weather and we were able to spend the whole day at the beach.

Got in some skim boarding….


(Okay, mostly Torrance, mine was more like falling on my face and getting sand burn).

And also some hole digging….


And lots of drink sipping and squinting from the sun because someone (hint – it wasn’t me) lost their really nice expensive sun glasses out in the waves.


I enjoyed some extra refreshing beach drinks of course….


And we even had some little kid toy-playing in the sand (imagine that, jumping a dirtbike).


Overall, it was super fun time and I’m sad to say I have a bit of a sunburn on my thigh. Apparently I missed a spot with the sunblock…. I don’t know, but it doesn’t feel good.



Oh, and if you havent already – don’t forget to head over to Pretty Random Things and check out my guest post from Saturday to see what’s in my purse!

Now, off to finish the not-as-fun part of returning from a trip – unpacking! Coolers to unload and rinse out, bags to unpack, and sand towels to wash and then we are off to watch Torrance’s little cousin’s baseball game, and enjoy a nice dinner with his mom before she leaves back to FL tomorrow.

Have a great Memorial Day and don’t forget to remember those who passed while serving our country.

  • How has your weekend been? Back to work tomorrow for you or no?
  • Any military in your family (past or present)?
    Oddly enough with the size of my family, no – but I have many friends who have served or are currently!

  1. Looks like you two had a great time, the last pic is super cute! Ha ha, up packing coolers and cleaning up is not fun. Ah you went camping jealous!

    A friend of mine is in the Army here in Canada, I don’t know anyone else who’s in the army.

    Enjoy the rest of your holiday Monday!

    BTW, I tried the premixed Jack Daniels Lemonade, I think you will like it. LOL

  3. How fun! I love that picture of y’all at the end – precious! I haven’t tried the Mike’s Harder, but I definitely will. I agree that JD Lynchburg Lemonade is awesome!

    My grandfather served as well as one of my cousins and uncles, and then my brother-in-law also served.

  4. Yo, sweet hole. As a nearly-pro hole digger myself, I say that with pride and sincerity.
