Hi from the Outer Banks!! Mazen and I are having ourselves a nice little end of summer vacay. For months I’ve been worried about being chased out by hurricanes but we somehow got incredibly lucky with an epic forecast. Sunshine and temps in the 80s all week! We are here with someone I’ve been seeing 😉 I’ve been eating lots of kettle chips, as usual, and as much seafood as one girl can in a week.
Arrival day dinner was boiled shrimp, green beans, corn, and clams.
Quiet coffee morning that didn’t last long until the bean was awake!
Big pre-beach breakfast!
There are tons of kids here and Mazen has made lots of friends. He is so extroverted! It used to take me 6 whole days to get the courage to talk to another girl on the beach, but he just walks up to someone and says “Hi, I’m Mazen. Want to play?!”
Isn’t he handsome?
Mommy’s mustache is made from:
Wouldn’t be a beach week without crabs!
The bowl of lemon water for cleaning fingers was genius! Melted butter (filled with Old Bay dipping already), and steamed kale on the side.
M loved playing with the crabs but I could only get him to have one taste.
I’ve been eating Breyers ice cream for desserts!!
Smoothie breakfast: spinach // blueberries // banana // peanut butter // Vega. I brought the Vitamix for the perfect blend. Cville Cluster Granola from Great Harvest on top!
We’ve been building castles and splashing in the surf. It’s been too rough to go much beyond the front row of waves, but hopefully it’ll calm down a bit soon!
Tomato and turkey melt for lunch with chips (beach staple!), and a yummy red plum.
This boy loves the beach!
