Memorial Weekend in NC

Well, that was quite a hiatus I took.

And it felt pretty good. I don't want to force myself to blog when I'm just not feelin' it. Life has been busy, and I've been enjoying it.

Memorial Day weekend was fantastic.

Our first stop was this beautiful vineyard in the-middle-of-nowhere North Carolina.


All guests were invited to the rehearsal dinner, and this was the beautiful spot.

We took plenty of pictures, drank some wine, and ate great BBQ. KC and I also scoped the tables for cute boys, naturally.


There was time for a quick golf scramble the day of the wedding, and I was lucky enough to have a real competitor on my team. It was no thanks to my poor shots that we won.


The wedding was held at an even more beautiful vineyard, much more expansive than the last. Rolling hills, acres of vines, and mountains in the distance.


I'm guessing this tent wasn't cheap to rent, which is why Sunday weddings are a great idea! Keep the tent from Saturday's extravagant celebration. I want someday, I want!


The wine. The wine.


And the very adorable and happy couple.


After a very late night of celebrating, KC and I drove east to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Five and a half hours east! More hours than I had just slept.

It was worth it when we arrived here.


Oceanfront is where it's at!


However, I almost preferred the house last year. While not as large, it was a private beach with much prettier sand dunes, in my opinion. But hey, I'm certainly not complaining!


I spent most of the time with my Katies. :)


And you know I ate plenty of food, as well.

Crab legs at the seafood buffet


And more North Carolina BBQ


It was a wonderful weekend, complete with a very nice tan.

I have never been to NC, but hopefully I'll be heading there soon (for school). It probably won't be as fun as your trip though :)
