A Super Saturday

This morning we slept in until almost 10 AM...which I hardly ever do.  Today's weather was amazing.  We  decided to take a drive down to Nags Head, North Carolina (something we have been discussing for weeks).  After a quick stop at Wawa for gas and some snacks...we were on our way.

Our first stop was lunch at Mulligans.  Chris and I ate there back when we were dating and really enjoyed it.  So we drove until we hit it and then stopped for lunch. 

Then we headed to a spot where we could walk on the beach.


Then we stopped at a place called Ben Franklin.  I worked at a place called Ben Franklin which was an arts and crafts store...which is what we thought it was when we stopped.  This Ben Franklin was a touristy t-shirt and souvenir shop.  I thought it was filled with a lot of junk until I came across this piece of art and just had to have it.  My husband and I decided we will use it to decorate a bathroom when we move this summer.  I love it.  I love all of the bright colors and the alphabet theme.  Best of all...it was $19.99.
Madison has been asking for a few weeks to go to Rita's Ice.  So we found one and stopped.  She had a blue raspberry ice.

Our last stop before heading home was a huge gift shopped called the Cotton Gin.  Seriously the place kept going and going.  Maddie ended up with a super cute pair of flip flops that were marked down to $18.00 and I ended up finding the wallet to match the Vera Bradley bag I got for Christmas.  My mom and I had looked everywhere for it and hadn't been able to find it.  I was so happy to find it at this store.
