Back from Our Little Jaunt

to one of my favorite destinations in the whole U S of A -- Charleston, SC.

VC loves the beach. As soon as he saw the ocean on the horizon, he said, "My stomach did a little hop when it saw the ocean."

When he wasn't testing out his new skimboard, he was floating around on an inner tube (despite the 60 degree water temp). I played the role of Landlubber.

***********warning: hot-n-sexy beach pic to follow**************

as you can see, I put the "white" in "white" and sure- most of the chicks were wearing tiny string bikinis, but why would you want to do that when you have your LL Bean thermal zip up, denim capris and old lady sun hat? I was fairly easy to spot amongst the sea of scantily clad babes, which was my goal ;-)

I won't bore you with our downtown architecture and touristy pics, other than this one that was taken at The Battery because cannon balls are cool :D

Every trip to Charleston, we make a point of dining one night at our favorite Pizzeria: Andolini's. The 19" pizzas are huge and the boys look forward to it, as well as our yearly pizza slice pic:

To give you an idea of the scale, as well as the "ambiance":

As you can see, I was wearing my "beach attire."

What about you? Do anything special over the holiday weekend?

8 Things Meme and C.O.W.

I hope all you moms had a delightful Mother's Day. I spent the weekend camping with the boys. More to come on that later. It was technically not "camping," since we stayed in a cabin, but it's close enough for me to consider it camping and I think you'll agree when you see the photos. In the meantime, the cabin, as rustic as it was, had WiFi!!! So, I completed this meme that my bloggy friend Janna Bee tagged me for last week:

8 Things I'm Looking Forward To:
Returning to civilization
Grilled Peanut Butter Cup sandwiches (just had one and all I can say now is "meh")
My next "class" so I can use the brand new zils MB helped me to assemble (he sews better than me)
Going to Charleston over the summer and eating pizza at Andolini's
Not having to shave my legs
Coming up with something else to look forward to - this list is sad :-(
Honda finally diagnosing the problem with my rear brakes so I can drive w/o turning the radio up
Trying this new anti-frizz stuff from Living Proof on my hair- has anyone tried it?

8 Things I Did Today:
Ate a Pop Tart (not the fiber ones)
Took Shower in creepy cabin shower
Saw a catfish on a hook
Entered blog contests that I have minimal chance of winning.
Went on a see-saw
Followed back a ton of people on Twitter - who honestly didn't seem all that interesting.
Went on a swing
Took a bike ride

8 Things I Wish I Could Do
tell a certain somebody where they can go
Be competent enough to belly dance with the group in public one day!
Visit NYC
Be my own boss
Live in a city
Get my nose or belly button pierced
Break my addiction to carbs
Realize it is not my responsibility to keep everybody happy

8 Shows I Watch:
The Office
30 Rock
48 Hours
Celebrity Apprentice
DWTS occasionally

Tag 8 People
Since I did plenty of tagging last week, I'm not going to tag anyone with this meme, but if you do decide to participate, please let me know so I can visit your blog.

And now, for the Comment of the Week (C.O.W.):
The C.O.W. goes to Tammy Howard for her comment on this post:
She said, "My hubs would kill me, too - or - worse yet - stop following me! And if he stops reading my blog, how will he know what's on my mind?"- love their method of communication!

Keep those comments comin' if you would like to be eligible for next week's C.O.W.
