I'm Baaaack

Hello beautiful bloggers!  Okay - so I've technically been back from vacation since Saturday - but I swear I haven't had an opportunity to hop on here and say hello until now.

Vacation was amazing as expected.  Destin is one of my favorite places to visit.  The beaches are beautiful and thankfully there was not a drop of oil in sight.  Could a girl ask for more??

But I do have one complaint - can someone please tell me why it is that in order to go on vacation you have to work double time the week before and after?  I mean - is it really a break when you have to spend two full weeks working non-stop just to be able to get away for a week? 

This week is beyond crazy for me because I am taking a half day on Thursday and all day Friday off to attend one of my besties wedding on Friday evening.  Hubby won't be joining me at this wedding - I'm a bride's maid and will be super busy AND a close family friend of his is getting married on Saturday.  So he is going to Winston Friday to help them get set-up.  I will get up early Saturday morning and make the four hour drive from Wilmington to Winston and join him at the wedding Saturday evening.

Oye - just typing that makes me tired!

So two and a half days of work left for me then I'm off for another long weekend.  Until then I will just dream of my beautiful beach vacation in Destin - how I wish I could on my spot on the beach right now.....

And just reading that you're driving from Wilmington to Winston makes me cringe... That's not going to be a fun drive. But, wave at Kernersville for me please! I soooooo miss living there!
