I have had such a fabulous month. It was nice to get away for almost 2 weeks to relax. I couldn't tell you the last time that I have done that. I think, however, vacations are not for me, because I feel like a one legged man in a but kicking contest trying to catch up on everything. :)
Let's get to the fun stuff first and then I'll tell you about my fun. How does that sound?!
Since I was away a lot this past month, almost a month to be exact, I decided to do 4 winners.
The winners of a free image from the Sassy Cheryl's Stamps shop are. . . .
KRIS, CYNTHIA, DIANNE & KETI
For my 1st mini vacation, I went to Mississippi to spend about a week with some of my sassy gals from the PCP (Paper Craft Planet) group, but I can't really post much of that, since Shirley stole my thunder. We had an absolute blast, and much to everyones surprise, Judy and I did not kill each other. Siri, however became Ann (another DT members) good friend, but she was a little nasty to me! Siri, not Ann. I'll save that story for another day. You really had to be there, but it was truly a 'belly laughing moment'…..until it hurt.
My 2nd mini vacation was to OBX (Outer Banks) for my birthday on Saturday. Yes, I am now 46 and proud of it. :)
I have a friend that has a vacation home there and it only cost us about $45 each for the entire weekend. Food, gas and all. What a deal. I was in heaven. I haven't been on any type of vacation for a very long time, so it was well deserved and much needed. Here are just a few of the MANY photos. . .
View from the deck. Yep. . . .many cups of coffee were had there in the morning.
First view of the beach. That's Bella at the bottom of the photo with her red bandanna on trying to figure out the ocean. Well, she had an itch at that moment, but the scene before was priceless.
Sunrise, our first morning. Love it!
Sunset. . .missed the highlight, but it's still gorgeous!!!
These next few photos are from Jockey's Ridge. Lord, did I learn quickly how out of shape I was. Puff, puff!
It was worth the trip.. . ..
Sand dunes forever. . .
it goes on and on….
and on! It was worth the CLIMB up. Beautiful!
Corolla lighthouse. . . .
Nope, I didn't go up. Afraid of heights and so I admired it from below. Just as gorgeous with my feet firmly planted on the
Walk around the area around the lighthouse.
Love that bridge. Simply beautiful in person
And this gives you an 'overall' view of the area. Gorgeous. It was so quiet and relaxing on Sunday. Just loved it.
Hope I didnt overwhelm you. It really was breathtaking! So much fun to get away. I really enjoyed myself and had a fabulous time. Time with friends is really the best thing ever! Thank you to Kaylee and Lynette for going along with me. I really had to drag you along, I know. LOL I'm sure you won't want to go next year.
So, that's mine. . . .where is yours? We all want to see. Show us please, if you will. We are all along for the ride!
You'll have until 9 PM EST, Wednesday, November 6th to get those entries in. You'll be entered to win a free image from the Sassy Cheryl's Shop just for playing along. One winner for each week. So, get busy, we cannot wait to see.
So. . .until next time. . .. .
