Memorial Weekend Recap

I’m just getting back into the swing of things since this weekend!  I took a couple days off before and after to get some time in with Daniel and the girls, since I was gone Friday-Sunday.  It was a great break with some friends, but I was happy to see my little family on Sunday!

Topsail Beach was so nice!  I had not been before and it did not disappoint.  All the girls came into town on Friday, so we settled and chatted before getting ready for dinner.  The taxi company really came through for us by showing up with a bus! Amazing!  Dinner was delicious and then we headed across the street to a small bar where they were hosting Karaoke.  So.Much.Fun.  12 girls rolling into the bar and immediately took over the “stage” and microphones.  Everyone in the bar probably wanted to kill us, but we didn’t care.  We were those girls.

Saturday we all woke up and pretty much immediately got ready for the beach.  Packing drinks, snacks, and lunches so we wouldn’t have to go back to the house.  I was dumb and put ZERO sunscreen on.  After the first 90 minutes, I was told I was pretty red, so I did put suntan lotion on from then on out.  Didn’t matter.  I was burnt to a crisp.  And I got lectured by two of my girlfriends.  Honesty at its finest!  I think I finally learned my lesson, and will be wearing sunscreen from now on.  {even though it might only be 8, it’s a step up people!}  Saturday night was a very low key night as we hung inside and made dinner.

Sunday I headed back to RVA and then drove out to my parents River House.  I was so happy to see Daniel and the girls.  Hayden was not happy to see me, so that upset me a little.  I think it was her payback to me for leaving her.  After about 30 minutes, she finally wanted to see me.  Hadleigh was sweet, giving me hugs and kisses.  Once we headed back to our house, we really just hung out and ran a bunch of errands.  Then Last night my sister and nephews came back into town for a short visit to surprise my parents.  We all went to dinner - the kids were ridiculously excited to see eachother!
