vacation part 2

5 things i have learned while on vacation:

1. no matter how much i try to tan..including getting spray tanned before vacation (which is a whole other hilarious story)...my husband..will ALWAYS be darker..and he stays in the shade most of the time. life isn't fair.
2. i got a little wild on vacation and drank a diet coke. crazy i know! even crazier..it was after 6pm. yeah..i regretted it. wide awake in bed for hours. kids..rebellion is not the answer.
3. North Carolina is a fantastically diverse and beautiful state. i highly recommend it.
4. Excessive sweat causes you to shower..every day. it is. DREADFUL. no one should shower everyday. no one.
5. my husband looked at me last night and said..."we have hardly anything in common". moral of the story..when opposites attract, it is a real. good. thing. i love that man.

ridiculous. no?
look at his skin and mine...what???
such adventurers
waterfalls are glorious
I may have pretended i was on a call to catch this shot of the town sheriff.
my husband bought me this hat. so fun!
i conquered this mountain. but i didn't find any Mohicans. sadly

I know what you are thinking...man..this girl takes a lot of vacations. That is partly true. However, This is the first one in a while..that i wasn't also working...ok i didn't work in madrid..but jet lag, combined with the hustle and bustle of a big city..made it not feel like vacation as much.
But this..this has definitely felt like vacation. Plus..it is my very first lake vacation.
We are at Lake Lure with my husband's family. it is awesome. surrounded by mountains. and near a beautiful lake has made this an incredibly relaxing time, not to mention it is where Dirty Dancing was partially filmed..AND Last of the Mohicans!  i'm exhausted from all the nothing i'm done. ha. i'm actually realizing how hard it is to just do nothing. but..don't worry..i'm getting very used to it. i haven't worn makeup, fixed my hair, or pretty much looked in the mirror for 3 days. it is awesome.
only 2 more days of this....

aint we cute?
