A Week in OBX! (Part 3)

We’ve come to the end of the road, dearest traveling partners. Today is the last post in our Outer Banks travel series with Seaside Vacations and I’m mourning the loss already. If you missed our other posts in the series and need to be caught up, you can read about our amazing Seaside Vacation’s beach...

OBX Part 2, The Clambake!

  Listen. I’m not one to tell people how they should read blogs, but let me warn you: you are going to want to sit down for this one. When you lay eyes on what I’m about to show you your knees will most certainly buckle and I can’t be held responsible for any crab-leg...

A Week in OBX (Part 1!)

I am SO excited to share part one of a three part series from our recent spring break in the Outer Banks of North Carolina with Seaside Vacations! While putting this post together I kept catching myself sighing with nostalgia over and over because it was SUCH a magical week. If you have a big...

    oh my — we LOVE obx and have vacationed there more times than i can count with family + friends!

    had i known of your trip ahead of time, i could have pointed you to a number of fabulous restaurants + shops. but one shop i know mama would have especially loved is a tiny little place in Pirate's Quay called "Cloud 9" — they sell most beads + jewelry created by local artists, but the owner, Jenny, is an absolute doll and delight. it's my tradition to visit the shop every year. i the past, i've always bought some beads + had her make a custom hemp necklace for me, but since im no longer in college (and thus grown well past my hemp-wearing days) i usually pick up a ready-made piece for myself.

    also, if you ever go back, do yourself a favor + head to the Collington Cafe. it's a touch off the beaten path, but the food there is truly DIVINE. i believe it's family-friendy, but you might want to do yourself a favor and treat the adults only as a little escape. 😉ReplyCancel

    First let me say how awesome this post was and seeing it makes me want to pack up and leave right away. A common problem in my family is picking a fun vacation spot to visit in the summer. It seems like every year as much as we try to steer clear of the typical “Florida trip” we always end up booking plane tickets down there. In your post you mention a place that I honestly have never heard of. I have been to the Carolina’s a countless amount of times, due to family, but I have never heard of these particular islands. From your pictures and your writing it seems like an awesome place, perfect for a family to just have fun and relax. Also when traveling with a large amount of people it is nice to have enough space for everyone and feel like your at home. I love the house that you have pictured in your blog because it looks like everyone was able to have their own space. Thank you for the great post, it was an eye opener and a place I will look into for the summer.ReplyCancel

A Visit to Hershey, PA

You. Guys. I know I’m an over-user of superlatives. I know. But really, I have been BEYOND excited to talk to you about the little getaway to Hershey, PA that we took a couple of weeks ago. This place is legitimately The Sweetest Place on Earth and we had an absolute blast spending time there...

A Visit to Washington DC

If you are stuck in a snow globe like Sam is today then maybe you could use a little e-getaway, and because I care about you, dear reader, I am here to give you one. A couple of weeks ago I got the chance to team up with our friends at the incredible Wyndham Vacation...

    sounds like you had a great visit


  • EvaNadineNovember 6, 2015 - 7:31 pm

    i work in DC and live in a MD suburb (we would like to lay claim to National Harbor and the LDS Temple, since technically they're on MD, not DC!) and girl, you are SO RIGHT about the chicken-n-waffles at Founding Farmers. they are seriously OFF THE CHAIN! i just had lunch, and you already have me craving them!
    the funny thing for those of us who live here (and moreso for folks like me who grew up here) is that visitors often see more sights in the city than we do! for example — ive never seen the capital wheel, and the last time i saw the lincoln memorial, i was probably willa mae's age!
    its a tragedy, isnt it?!

    so glad you enjoyed your trip here. 🙂ReplyCancel

    Looks like an awesome vacation! I totally took for granted when my parents took me to DC when I was a kid, I want to go back now!

    Man, oh man. I love DC. I don't think we went to National Harbor a single time though, and it looks like we missed out. Glad you had a fun time and that your parents got to go with you. So fun!ReplyCancel

Nemacolin Woodlands Resort

I am so thrilled to tell you all about a dreamy getaway my family took a couple of days before Thanksgiving. If you didn’t know, I live in State College, Pennsylvania and just a couple of hours away, not too far from Pittsburgh is a little town called Farmington, Pennsylvania that is nestled in the...
