oh, oh - we're half way there

The houses in the Outer Banks are crazy big. So fun to run around and see all the different ones that the Peeps were staying at. We took a picture in this house with the big sale boat in the window. You could see it from the street - it was great!

Some other highlights include:

- theme song of the trip (it doesn't get much cheesier and good than this people):
Summer Love ~ Justin Timberlake
"tell me how they got that pretty little face on
that pretty little frame ... girl"
"let me buy you drinks, better yet rings"
"I can't wait to fall in love with you,
you can't wait to fall in love with me -
this just can't be summer love, you'll see"

- Lighthouse trip (you saw the pictures here)
- church with 800 plus people
- "secret, secret, I got a secret" (thank you styx)
- Livin on a prayer - Bon Jovi ... three times (I could sing this song all day long)
- Karaoke
- dance parties ... lots of JT

Me bustin a move in the karaoke bar.

- wide open spaces - the beach and houses are far removed from town, which is small anyway ... but it was nice to be out of the city.
- making memories with old and new friends.
- getting sunburned (oh wait - NOT a highlight)

Victoria, April & Bethany - we hit up all the parties together (hahaha)
I am so burnt ... it hurts just looking at the picture.
- what on earth is a Brew Thru? We saw tons of them! I was so confused.
- a sales girl at a surf shop commented on the fact that I was one of the only people she has heard pronounce the brand name RVCA correctly ... April informed her that I grew up in CA and it all made sense to her.
- the KFC/Taco Bell fast food place only had KFC! Ever since leaving the west I have come across many places that just don't have things at the moment - how strange is that.
- speaking of fast food - I started a new book at the beach ~ Fast Food Nation. Once again, it is incredibly interesting! More about economics than the food. Bet you didn't even realize how Fast Food changed America did you? - don't worry I will tell you all about it in future posts.

Last but not least on the list of highlights:

- being pulled over outside of DC by a Virginia State Trooper for speeding ... he thought that April and I were kids in the back ... until he saw our white trash Miller Lite portable cooler. Yeah - it had cut up veggies in it - not beer. And if that officer only knew what April and I were talking about back there! Ahhh, good times.

Sounds like a fun time...the brew thru is the wierest thing ever. I made Lauren drive in last summer just to check it out, and I got a coke. Too funny.

By the way, these pics only confirm my theory about the peeps...all attractive!

Good to see what you are up to again. Have been out of the loop for awhile...well I don't know, maybe that is presumptious to think I was in anyones "loop" regardless,...drive safe and take care.
