Big Announcement and Giveaway Winner!

I can’t believe tomorrow is my last day already, we have to leave the house early Sunday morning.   I’m nowhere near ready to leave!  This place is so amazingly relaxing.  The only good thing is next week because of Memorial Day and my Friday’s off I only have a short 3 day work week ahead of me.  Should make it a little more painless.

Yesterday was a really great day we woke up hung out by the pool a little later my dad made some delicious blueberry pancakes.

Since we had a late breakfast I wound up snacking on an unpictured orange later in the day and never ate a real lunch. 

We hung out by the pool for most of the day.

Yes I bought goggles to wear in the pool.  I’m a nerd like that.DSCF4419

I can’t tell you how many pictures I have of me walking, I never know about them until I upload my pictures.

Later on Andrew and I went for a bike ride down to one of the beaches.

Afterwards we came back and had dinner.  I had some leftovers.

I had the chicken leftover from the night before.

After dinner Andrew and I took a trip to Jockey Ridge State Park.  It is the largest natural sand dune on the East Coast.  Climbing up those dunes is tough but it is the most amazing view, on one side you have the ocean and on the other you have the sound.  It’s absolutely breathtaking.  And it will now forever be a very special place to me.

People looks like ants from the top.

As we were walking along Andrew stopped hugged me and got down on one knee, he pulled out the most beautiful ring in the world, and I started crying instantly.  I knew it was coming but he had tricked me into thinking it wouldn’t be for a little while.  I had always said I didn’t want a lot of people around when he proposed especially strangers, and as we were walking up the dunes he kept pointing to areas where there weren’t a lot of people, and he continuously was scoping out the area around us.  I had a feeling it was coming but wasn’t sure.  I never thought I’d be one to cry I though I would be far too excited, boy was I wrong.  We left the park just as it was closing and decided to celebrate with some ice cream.

  I wanted to post so badly last night but needed to call family and friends first, I’m sure you all understand.

I would post today’s eats but it’s getting late and I’m exhausted, plus they were pretty boring.  I have a ton of leftovers from our dinner out tonight but will post them when I get around to eating them.

I used to spend summer vacation there growing up. Most of my relatives are on the East Coast. When we were younger and would tell our friends we went to the Outer Banks (I’m from Chicago) they would say “Where?”

Awesome place to visit and great place to vacation!!

 

Thanks to everyone who entered I loved reading your favorite vacation spots, I hope to travel to some of those one day!

Jenn send me an email  365healthyeats@gmail.com with your mailing info and I’ll get these out to you as soon as I get home!  Congrats!

I’m not sure I’m going to be posting tomorrow since it’s our last day so I might not be around until Monday since we’ll be in the car all day Sunday.  I hope you all have a fantastic holiday weekend!
