Catching Up

First off don’t forget about My First Giveaway you still have 2 days to enter!

Sorry I disappeared yesterday, I’ve been trying to enjoy vacation now that I’ve only got 4 days left.  This week is just flying by!  It’s been a lot of fun though and we’ve pretty much done everything we wanted to do while here except for one more thing that we’re planning on doing tomorrow night.  Other then that it’s going to be a lot more relaxing on the beach, by the pool, and some bike riding thrown in.

After posting the other day we had dinner of spaghetti and meatballs.  It was a cold rainy afternoon so it worked out perfectly.


I also had a side salad of romaine and cucs.


With some of that light balsamic that’s peaking over the bowl.

Later on Geoffrey came out to play.  I had no idea hermit crabs were nocturnal but they definitely are once the sun goes down they come out to play.  For the past 2 nights we’ll go to bed and hear Geoffrey moving around, in the morning we’ll see that rearranged all his things in his cage.





Later on while watching TV Andrew, my parents, and I all split a 100 calorie bag of popcorn.


The next morning we woke up and I had a smoothie that contained skim milk, pom juice, high fiber cereal, raspberries, blueberries, banana, and pb.


After breakfast Andrew and I went on a quick 6 mile bike ride to the neighboring town of Duck, NC.


It was a windy day but bike riding was a good option for something to do outside.


Once we got back we ate a quick lunch.  I had a random mix of things I found in the fridge.

I had  1/2 an Arnold Sandwich thin with a string cheese to make a piece of super cheesy bread.


I also had left over rice from the other night.


And for some crunch I had 1/2 a green pepper.


All together:


Later on we did a little more shopping (I actually bought nothing!)  But Andrew did buy some local made fudge and I of course helped him eat some of it.


Absolutely delicious!

For dinner last night we had some home made burgers.


On the side I had some Food Should Taste Good Tortilla chips.


We also had some corn we picked up from a local stand.


I of course had another apple cider on the side.


We went to bed pretty early last night and I was excited to wake up and see the sun shining bright.  It was still a little windy but it was a good day to lay out in the sun and go in the hot tub.  I had some cereal and yogurt for breakfast.

We spent the morning out in the sun before we decided to take a short drive to Manteo for lunch and to walk around.

We ate lunch at a 50’s style diner, it was so cute.





There wasn’t many choices unless I wanted something fried or another burger, so I played it safe with a grilled chicken sandwich.


Then we walked around the very scenic town of Manteo.




I’m a rebel and climbed to the top even though it was blocked off.

We came back to the house and the wind had died down enough to swim and I stayed in the pool for an hour or so before we had to get ready to go to dinner.  We went to a restaurant we really enjoyed last year and decided to visit again.


I decided to get the St. Lucia Chicken because I had that last year and loved it, and even though I had a chicken for lunch I decided to have it again because it was something really really good.


After ordering some really delicious bread came out.


And not long after our dinners came out.


I ate one piece of chicken, most of the beans and about 1/2 the rice.  I brought the one piece of chicken home to eat for lunch tomorrow or Friday. 

Well that’s everything up till now!  I’m going to try to update tomorrow so I don’t have to do a marathon post like this again!  Hope you are all having a fabulous week, see you tomorrow!

    love the pictures- so cool to have a crab! And ‘Duck’ is an awesome name for a town 😀

    the 50’s diner looks a lot of fun (as does PB fudge!)

  • 13. Tina  |  May 21, 2009 at 12:21 pm

    That PB fudge looks amazing! Or sounds amazing.. 🙂 There’s a market going on in town right now with stands selling things from all parts of the world – a stand with Italian bakegoods and nougat for example and there’s one with a bunch of different fudge! I just saw it today and was so excited. There were so many flavors, I didn’t see any PB flavor but I only went around on one side of the stand before deciding not to get any and I left. The fudge didn’t look all that fresh though which was a shame. I remember when I was in the US a few summers ago with my grandfather and he stopped at this fudge place and bought the best fudge I’ve ever tasted, so moist and fresh!

  • 14. Erin  |  May 21, 2009 at 12:37 pm

    Fudge, beer, corn, jerk chicken…

    I cannot process ALL these delicious foods! How flipping fun. 🙂

  • 15. Gina  |  May 21, 2009 at 12:43 pm

    I am so glad I looked at your blog today because I’ve always wondered about adding pb with fruit in smoothies. I assume it’s good? I have always wanted to try it but I always assume it won’t taste good, I’m going to try it now!!

  • 16. Sarah  |  May 21, 2009 at 1:54 pm
