Well, we’ve finally arrived back to New York, safe and sound, after a long 12 hour car ride through the night.
Thankfully, a fully charged cell phone battery got me through some of the monotony of the drive, yet my Google Reader is still a disaster and will probably take at least a full week just to catch up on. Sheesh.
As sad as I was to leave OBX, the beach, and the carefree lifestyle that is a vacation, this little guy definitely helped peak my spirits as soon as we entered through the door early this morning.
I sure did miss the little bugger! Luckily, it doesn’t look like he did too much damage with the margaritas. I’m sure I did worse.
So a few weeks ago, I was reading through Heather’s blog and happened to come across the recap of her recent Texas trip. I really liked her approach to the recap, so I thought I’d go ahead and attempt the same, just Outer Banks style!
