I am in the middle of buying  jackets, mittens and boots for the upcoming winter and packing our beach gear for vacation!!!

We are headed to the Outer Banks for a friend’s wedding….taking the kiddos out of school for the whole week….renting a house on the beach with my college girlfriends….can’t wait!!!

Sorry I can't help you with any tips, but I have heard it is beautiful!
Can't wait to hear about your adventures.
Enjoy every minute of it.

love your flower photos, wow! Re: OBX, my friend at serial swooper (link to her blog is on mine) went in August - you should scroll thru her stuff to see her post about it, looks like a beautiful spot - can't wait to hear about it, what a place for a wedding!

ooohh! I live right on the way to the Outer Banks. Are you driving? If so, the site you need to see is ME! :)

What part of the OBX are you staying?

And, WAY cool on your kiddos doing Nutcracker also! What parts did they get? Do they take dance? Not all productions are alike, but in ours there is a big party scene in the beginning where Clara gets the Nutcracker from Drosselmeyer. BB wants to be one of the Party Girls. The competition is tough and one of her best buddies is a better dancer so she'll get it before BB. That's the hard part for BB. :(

Oh, and they don't let us anywhere near the auditions either. I snapped those few pix in an empty studio before they began.
