OBX in the Aztek

We took a last-minute break from real life and hit the Outer Banks a few weeks ago.  I’m not normally a spur-of-the-moment type person but the spirit moved me and my husband wasn’t about to say no to a camping trip in the Aztek (I’m not usually much of a camper) or the beach!  The weather was gorgeous and even the heat was tolerable.  The campground, Frisco Woods, was awesome as was the view from our campsite.  We were a bit wary of staying somewhere without a website or personal recommendation but it turned out to be much better than most of the alternatives in the area and we’re planning to go back again later this summer. I love it when things just come together!

This was my first trip to the Outer Banks as an adult and I really enjoyed it. I grew up going to the Jersey shore so I do miss having a boardwalk to explore but the warmer ocean temperature in North Carolina almost made up for that. Compared to Va Beach, our “local” beach, I’d take the Outer Banks anyday. We went there for a few days last summer and I was not impressed and have no desire to go back. Live and learn.

One of my friends on Facebook commented that spring break as an adult is depressing compared to spring break in college. I disagree! I enjoy my spring breaks so much more now; I appreciate the time off and take advantage of it! I feel that way about life in general though. I enjoy being 28 so much more than I enjoyed being 18. High school was fine. College was fine. Adult life involves more work, maybe, but it offers more opportunities as well. I definitely think that the years just keep getting better. Okay, enough seriousness. I sound like my mom.

My sister and I went to New Orleans for Easter and had an amazing time; the trip really couldn’t have been better. We’re back home now and the depression has set in for both of us. Well, not really. The weather is still gorgeous and I’m so glad that it feels like spring! I’m just not happy that I have to go to work on a daily basis. And wear real shoes. I miss my flip flops! I have a feeling that the next two months are going to drag on. On the bright side (literally), at least it’s light when I leave the house now.

I made my sister pose for a few pictures while we were in NOLA. We have totally different styles but had fun with it!
