Thankful Thursday

A couple weeks ago Brian told me to find a babysitter for April 20th.  He said for date night he had a surprise.  Last Saturday he got home from work and within 30 minutes we were back out the door.  I figured there was a new restaurant he wanted to try.  As we got on the interstate and headed North I thought we were heading to St. Augustine for the evening.  As we passed the St. Augustine exit I was baffled.  Brian hates driving long distances on the weekend since his commute is 2 hours everyday to Jacksonville.  I couldn’t imagine that after he just got home from Jacksonville that 30 minutes later we would be headed back there?  He had me guessing in the car trying to figure out where we were headed. 

My amazing husband surprised me with VIP Carrie Underwood concert tickets!!!  We had an amazing night!  It was so nice to be in a VIP suite that had unlimited food and drinks and comfy chairs!  Hunter Hayes opened for Carrie and he was phenomenal.  It was the first concert we’ve ever been to together and the first concert I’ve been to in over 15 years.  I was so captivated by the concert that I didn’t get many pictures and the lights blasting from the stage really drown out the chance of a good photo.  I attached a photo I found online.

I am blessed with this incredible man…he is far too good to me.  <3>

Brian is such a kid at heart.  He was so excited to show me these when he got home from the store.  The kids had a blast despite the fact that it looked as though our home was flooded…inside and out.

Dear Brian, Next time you decide to buy Addison a Barbie toy please make sure it’s a toy and not a 160 piece mega block toy that took ME 90 minutes to complete.

She falls asleep like this all the time.  Amazing that she still manages to hold it upright.

NE Blast At False Point Near Hatteras Inlet

The Spring Hatteras Windsurfing is well underway and there have been many great sessions so far this year! However, with a busy work and family schedule this year, I have not been able to catch all the sessions as in the past. Still, I catch what I can get and today the gettin was good!

False Point down near Hatteras Inlet was the call which featured residual south well and a build wrap from the strong north swell locking in today. Surf ranged from waist to head high and sets were breaking nicely on the outside sandbars. We had a nice sized crew out and everyone caught some great waves! Check out the slide show! Looks like more to come tomorrow with bigger swell!

Yea, OBX-WIND is underway! We have a excellent group of celeb pros in town from Maui to participate/host the event, and share the Hatteras windsurfing stoke! Gonna be a great week for windsurfing!

A Beach cottage does a French plum galette recipe

Plums. I pretty much love them, a Plum Galette, well that just makes it even better.  I dream of plum picking (don’t even go there with that other thought you might be having on picking plums) on a beautiful English Summer’s day, with bees buzzing and the wonderful trees laden with fruit and the Garden [...]
