Greetings from my happy place!
Thursday night, I went to N.J. to pick up a vehicle to drive down to OBX.
Friday, I drove from N.J. to D.C., stopping to see my little muffin first.
I stayed with my friend Tina, and we went to Uncle Julio’s. I typically stay away from frozen margaritas because I can easily down a few of them and a gazillion calories in a very short time, but good lord do I make an exception for these.
Yesterday, I drove from D.C. to OBX. In total, the drive is about 550 miles and took more than 12 hours (YAY Memorial Day weekend traffic), but is totally worth it to come to my happy place.
I MEAN, THE HOUSE HAS A TIKI BAR.
After basically two days in the car, I had tons of pent-up energy, and I went out for a run soon after we got in.
Toto, I don’t think I’m in NYC any more.
So far, it’s been too chilly to get in the ocean, so we’ve been hanging around the pool. It’s supposed to get warmer later in the week, which will make it even more difficult to leave.
We have so many good cooks here, and today, someone made this “egg boat.” (It’s basically eggs, pancetta and a bunch of veggies baked into some bread, and it is a slice of heaven on a plate.)
Also making me smile:
Talking one of my friends here into her first half in Philly in September (and I’m going to do it, too!) and running with her this morning!
And, most importantly, my college best friend/freshman year roomie gave birth to her first child yesterday. She was pretty early, but both mom and baby are healthy, and I CANNOT wait to go up to Maine next month and see them. <3
What’s your happy place?
