In My Mind I've Gone to Carolina...

Friday, July 12, 2013

By the time you read this I'll be on vacation with my brother! (Um, can I get an Amen?)



Flying is never really a super fun experience,but it's necessary in order to get to North Carolina from Texas.

All complaints aside, even I enjoyed the pictures of Houston, Texas as we took off. They're a little blurry, but seeing as I was probably endangering the whole flight by whipping my phone out, these are as good as it's gonna get.


Right now, I'm probably sitting in my Grandparent's HUGE kitchen munching on homemade cookies, sipping on homemade lemonade and getting ready for a spontaneous dip in their pool. (If it's spontaneous than I suppose I couldn't really be 'getting ready', but you get the point!)

Yes, that's me (chubby cheeks and all) with my Grandfather!


If you read this a little later in the week, I may be on the sandy shores of North Carolina. (If visiting the Atlantic isn't on your bucket list, please reevaluate.)


I might even be jet-skiing on my Grandparent's lake. 

Quick word of advice regarding jet-skiing- 3 people on a jet-ski is probably not the wisest choice. 

Unless of course you don't mind the surplus of weight constantly flipping you and forcing you to swim hurriedly after the abandoned jet ski in a big lake. Yeppppp.


Anyways, enough of the perils of jet-skiing. Let's have some real talk.

For a least a solid week, there's a chance I will have no internet/phone service at all.

I know. Scary stuff, but I'm not going to let it worry me. I'm going to enjoy the time I have. 




Hopefully, I'll have time to kick back, relax, update everyone on what's going on, post my billions of new recipes me and my Grandma are going to make, and read your blogs, but if something happens and I can't, I haven't forgotten you!

I ought to be back by next Tuesday, so I hope you can hold your horses until then!

Okay, last but not least, I have one more piece of business before I finish up this post and go enjoy vacation! Google reader is no longer in existence, so I'm now on Bloglovin!

I'm loving all the new blogs I've found through Bloglovin and my other blog friend. This Pinterest quote is the only quote I could find that adequately describes how I feel! I can't wait to hear about all you've done during my brief absence!

  13. I think unplugging from email/the internet / social media when on holidays is sometimes a really good thing and can help you reconnect with yourself and just really relax :)

    Enjoy those very delicious cookies and your vacation, or holiday as we prefer to call it here in Australia ;)

  14. Have a great time Katherine!

    I've never been to North Carolina, but I've always heard it's beautiful! I don't mind flying, but my husband is NOT a good flyer. It's always quite a chore for him when we fly. This summer we're driving somewhere for vacation, so doesn't have to worry about it.

  20. Have a great trip! I also hate flying, but just try to look at the brighter side once the plane lands. It's the lack of fresh air that really gets to me. PS: Really digging the picture of you and your grandpa. :)
