I’m home! I’m nursing a wicked sunburn on my shoulders, my legs are all dry and crackly from excessive use of sunscreen (too much information?), I’m exhausted from a long car ride back and am, of course, already back to work, but I had a great time in the Outer Banks and got some much-needed reading done.
If you followed along on Twitter this weekend, I went to a Daredevils game and caught me a stuffed lobster — which became, somehow, my ticket to a seafood gift card. I had to return the lobster, which I thought was my “prize,” but I got to redeem it for crab legs and shrimp for a family feast on Saturday. I’m a little bummed I don’t have that lobster, though. Cute, right? And that seafood tasted mighty good, I’ll add. Especially since it was free. Free food tastes better than food you pay for, and I’m fairly certain that’s a scientific fact.
I haven’t had a chance to upload any of my photos and hate to post this without them, but I don’t think I have a choice! Ending my radio silence is important to me. So here’s what you can expect this week: a review of the two books I read on vacation, Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson and The Lies We Told by Diane Chamberlain, plus a fresh post with tons of random photos of food and me in various states of beach-induced ridiculousness.
When I can get some caffeine in my bloodstream, I’ll be tackling my Google Reader, responding to emails and basically rejoining Internet land. It’s slow-going, friends, but I’m on it.
