It's finally here! Vacation. That feeling that you get when 5pm finally gets here and you're officially on vacation. No responsibilities, no worries, nothing for the next 9 days. It's been a long time since Wesley and I have taken time off and gone away just for fun. There's almost always some kind of business involved. Now, we're very fortunate for these business trips because we've gotten to do and see some pretty cool stuff - like meeting Mila, Emma and Katie Stauffer at Toy Fest. Yes, that is probably the highlight of 2018 for me so far. LOLOLOLOL. But, it will be so nice to get away, forget about work, forget about school (most days) and just relax. That's something I'm working on. I get bored easily and I really cannot stand to be bored, so we will see. We've got our beach chairs, we've got our tent, we've got our towels, we've got our bathing suits. Somehow I still feel like I'm forgetting everything. Packing for me is a huge process. I'm so nervous I'm going to forget something and then the morning of, a switch flips and I suddenly have this 'I'll just buy it there' mentality.
We're headed to North Topsail. We've never been there before and we've only been to the North Carolina coast once, so we are all excited to check it out. We've got a fishing charter booked and other than that, we have no plans. That's very unlike us. I'm a planner. Hardcore. I like itineraries and reservations, but this time we're going to freestyle- if you will.
Booking a house that fits all of our needs was no easy task. Some of the family burns easily, so a covered porch with a view was important. Some of us just want to get a tan without a bunch of strangers around. None of us wanted a loud, crowded beach. We needed at least three bedrooms, four beds, two bathrooms, a stocked kitchen, the list goes on. Did I mention how hard it is to find a house that seems to have comfy furniture. I'm not a fan of wicker, but I can get on board with the beach vibe. I cannot however get on board with thinking that is comfy to lounge on for an entire week. Well ladies, I found the "perfect" house. So, say a prayer that this house is as perfect as the pictures and reviews. ALWAYS read the reviews. Stay tuned for lots of vacation pictures on our Facebook and Instagram!
