Weekend Recap

Monday, May 18, 2015

This weekend went by so quickly! I skipped a Friday post because I spent the whole day rushing around and packing for this three month trip to North Carolina. Packing for three months is so hard! Everyone said I overpacked but i'd much rather be over prepared than under prepared when it comes to a trip this long. Saturday I left at 8am from LAX and arrived in Raleigh around 4pm. I was exhausted by the time I got there but so happy to finally see Daniel! The last time I got to see him was the first weekend of April so this trip was very over due. After the airport, he and I got some dinner at City Barbecue. I ordered my favorite guilty pleasure, fried pickles and some brisket, it was delicious!

We also went to Trader Joe's and picked up some groceries for the house. The Trader Joe's in Raleigh is the closest one to Fayetteville so I got everything I could think of until we got out there again. Saturday night I was so tired by the time we got home so I passed out pretty quickly. On Sunday Daniel took me to Krispy Kreme first thing in the morning. He knows the way to my heart. The donuts were just coming off the assembly line, they were so warm and so delicious. We ordered a whole box for the week. We also did some grocery shopping to pick up a few other things for the week. One of Daniel's friends invited us to a "water park" later in the day. Now, I used air quotes on that one because when I think of water parks I think of six flags and knots berry farm water parks with giant slides and water rides. This was cute, but in no way what I was expecting.

There was a man made lake, some pretend sand and some little baby slides. The weather was about 90 degrees though and the water was so refreshing and still lots of fun to swim in. We ordered some popsicles and relaxed there for a few hours. I'm trying hard to get my summer tan back! 

Daniel was really focused on his popsicle. We also played some corn hole, which I found out I am terrible at, and then eventually headed back home. It was a very good start to my summer trip and I am thankful to get this time with Daniel. He's back at work this week and were looking at finding a new apartment, but hopefully I'll have plenty of time to come up with some interesting blog posts for everyone. Happy Monday!
