This is the beautiful house we stayed in while on the Outer Banks. I love how beach houses have names; isn’t it adorable?! There were some pretty funny ones around our neighborhood. I also love the beach house style–colorful exteriors with white trim. (I have to admit, though, I’m not a fan of the beach house interior. Most houses have just one too many seashell-related items, haha.)

We had such a wonderful vacation, and I was so glad to meet so many wonderful people in Chris’s family! (Most people there were his first cousins once removed, and he hasn’t seen them very much.) We spent a lot of time on the beach, either soaking up the sun or frolicking at sunset, searching for the perfect seashells. We loved lounging in the hot tub, riding bikes around the neighborhood, and eating the most delicious ice cream! We took a trip with his grandparents to the Wright Brothers National Memorial. (I have one of those national park passport books, but I had forgotten it, so I stamped a piece of paper to tape inside my book!) On our last day, we went on a wild house tour and got completely soaked since it was raining and we were sitting in an open air truck, booking it down the beach (yep–they drive on the beach in the wildlife preserve because they don’t have paved roads!). All in all, despite the extremely muggy conditions at times, I would go back! Now it’s back to school until our next adventure. 🙂

* So, I did actually have my toes painted before we left. I did it myself in an effort to save money, but the paint started peeling off of nearly every single toe, so I spent an evening taking it off. Whatever base coat I used did not adhere very well at all, so that was a huge fail!

  1. That sounds like a fun trip. I hate the seashell beach theme for decor also. I have never heard of the national park passport book and Im so going to look into it.

    • The national park passport is so cool! It’s a small but pretty thick book with information on all the parks/monuments/memorials, etc. and places to stamp when you visit those places. I got it last summer when I was in Hawaii, so I missed all of the places I visited as a kid, but that just means I have an excuse to visit them again!
