White Christmas Bedroom

  Helllooooo, a few quick snaps of the bedroom today, after convincing myself and pleasing my husband muchly that we would not have any more white, ruffles, Christmas decs, quilts (vintage or otherwise) or fairy lights for him to contend with while climbing into bed I decided stuff that idea and went in for the kill.

Christmas Decorating Beach Cottage Style

  Morning campers, warning : this post is very white.  When I uploaded the pics of this I thought gosh there sure looks a lot of white there, it doesn’t feel like that day in day out because, I guess, there are three kiddos and one doggie and two people who try to keep it [...]

Winter Hatteras Wavesailing!

Well, not for me, but the wave crew down south of Mirlo Beach have been enjoying excellent winter time opportunities to catch some action!  Last week we experienced a few days of strong NE wind and while the road access at Mirlo remained questionable with new overwash, those located south down in Avon had no problems making it to the south side to catch it at False Pt near Hatteras Inlet.

Great shot captured by Wind-NC’s Andy McKinney with the Go-Pro featuring both the peak break and Keith McCulloch a little further down the line.

Damn, wish I could have been there!

Poor Little Guy

Enzo has had a cough for a couple weeks now.  It started as a dry cough so I didn’t feel a need to rush him to the Dr.  In the last few days though it’s turned into a phlegm cough.  I started running the humidifier in their room in hopes that it would help but he would wake up so congested.  He then started having nasal drainage along with being super clingy and a sudden lack of appetite.  I called the Dr. yesterday but they were booked solid.  I had hoped to take him to the Dr. over my lunch hour.  I left a message for the nurse and she said that we’d be 1st on the list if any cancellations arose.  Luckily they squeezed us in at the end of the day.  Found out he not only has a sinus infection but also an ear infection.  Now he’s on antibiotic for 10 days so at least he won’t be sick for Christmas…but Addison and I are now coming down with cold symptoms.

Easy Christmas Trifle Holiday Dessert

Boom shakka shakka. Beach Cottage trifle bokeh. If you are a foodie, gasp at shop-bought cake, do not like packet jelly (and I don’t blame you) and prefer not to add any further jiggle to your upper arms, step away from the computer right now. If you however, are a busy mum, need a Christmas [...]
