NC Girls Trip Days 1 and 2

I am home from our trip. Here's some of the fun we had...

On the way to NC we passed by Pilot Mountain. This area is full of Mayberry stuff...even an Aunt Bea's Restaurant. This cop car was too cute.

This is my dream home. It is on the way to NC too. This picture does not do it justice. Behind the house is a huge pond with a white dock and gazebo on the water. Gorgeous!
The first night we ate at Golden Corral. BIL's dad and sis were in town too. I was surprised that his dad watched Real Housewives...I loved talking with him! We stayed at the Marriott that night since they already had a full house.

On Day #2 we picked up Lil Sis and drove to Myrtle Beach, SC. First stop...a candy store! Oh the barrels of yumminess!

We had lots of fun in the shops at Barefoot Landing...check out the beak on Lil Sis!

Can't you just see mom driving a blue 57 Chevy! LOL! I took a new profile pic in this store...I'll get it up later!



The Christmas Mouse is a very festive store full of great trees! I loved this blue and white...lots of little dishes...thought of you Dana!

Mom was impressed by the imitation Sham Wow guy...we each came home with one. I told mom that Kristina would be so proud...she said, "Who?" I just reply "Internet." LOL!

We dared to enter the Maze of Mirrors...Mom totally cheated by using her imitation Sham Wows to find the mirrors! Next we were off to...

ride a mechanical bull?!

So funny to watch Manga Dork and Lil Sis fall off!
We ended the day at Broadway at the Beach riding the rides and then Lil Sis and Manga Dork took a dip in the pool...

Feels good to be back home and online...I took a small "blogcation." Can't wait to check in with everyone!

I think that might be my dream house too. It needs a pool though.
That was such a neat trip. I didn't know they had a Mayberry type town.

I always wanted to live in Mayberry!

Where is Manga Dork in these photos? And who is that pretty girl in the blue shirt at the candy shop?

I hardly recognize her!
