Emerald Isle, NC {Oh, and Hi!}

I blogged!

Amazing, right?

While this past week has been one of the most excruciatingly stressful weeks of our life, we got to escape to the most beautiful place ever for a few days. We came back home Thursday morning around 2:00AM, in hopes of settling on our house this past Friday, but as I am sitting here on my couch in my empty house, I honestly cannot believe the happenings of last week {I will need to write about this after we finish moving our crap back into our house).

My in-laws go to Emerald Isle every year, but life got in the way the last couple of years so this was the first time in 3 years we got a chance to go. It.was.beautiful.

The weather could not have been more beautiful, sunny and in the high 70's/low 80's all week. The girls had such a great time, it made the short trip and 6 hour drive totally worth it. God must have sensed how much we would need this vaca, because it was honestly heaven. If only we could hate stayed the rest of the week...

We were not expecting how much Quinn would love the ocean. I mean love. She seriously wanted nothing more than to sit and play in the water. And Harper didn't even once attempt to eat sand, so it was literally magic. 

Anth got to spend a ton of time with his dad, fishing in the ocean and on boats. It was pretty nice to see that and spend a week with Grandad and Nana. Or as Harper likes to call them Brenna and Nina. 

This guy. I seriously don't know where us girls would be without him. Somehow in this disaster we have both managed to laugh. While there were some tears, there was always laughter and always, always something to be thankful for. The girls have no clue what is going on, and I thank God for that. Although Quinn still talks about moving to a new house, we hope to take a little bit of a break before we list it again. 

We are going to enjoy life, with Daddy around all the time. We're going to continue to purge everything that we don't absolutely need and try to live simply for the rest of our time here. Who knows where we will end up, but this has taught us nothing except that we don't care. As long as we are together, it doesn't matter where we are. But damn, I just wish we didn't have to learn this the hard way. 

On a side note, if you are in Maryland, please send me an email as I can very much tell you who NOT to use for your real estate needs. Whose wife also happens to hate pit bulls. (that is a teaser for a future post).
