Andy and I went with my parents to Topsail Island this weekend. It's a small, quiet island off of I-40 that's only about 3 hours away. There's no McDonald's there if that gives you any idea of how small it is! We just hung out, checked out the local restaurants (Max's has some great pizza according to my husband), and took a boat cruise on "The Belle of Topsail". It's a fun little boat ran by the captain and his wife. It was nice to pay for some touristy activity and feel like it was worth your money and that you didn't get ripped off. We were out at sunset and it was so beautiful!
Monday came too quickly and Wednesday is now almost over! I have had a busy real estate week and am hoping to get an accepted offer on a listing of mine before the week is over!
Andy has been busy at work as well and seems to be pleased with the way things are going. It's so neat to see how the Lord places certain people/organizations in his life.
We got to have a nice "mid-week date" (as we like to call it) last night. He took me to the Village Grille, a local favorite. Looks like we'll finally be around this weekend and I am so looking forward to it!
The latest news is that we are getting work done on the kitchen at Andy's office. We have been able to find a couple of skillful retired men that have the time to do things we just can't get to! We put in new countertops there and one of these guys is painting the cabinets, putting on new hardware, tearing down the nice brown paneling, and painting! It's an old building that could be really cool with some tlc so that's what we are attempting.
I didn't get to walk Mae Belle this morning so by dinner she was just awful! I decided to take her to the dog park to get some of her energy out. A very pregnant lady came in with her dog and Mae Belle jumped on her right away, getting her white pants muddy (why you wear white pants to the dog park, I don't know)! Then the lady sat down on the bench and Mae Belle jumped on the bench as was climbing all over her! I felt like I had a glimpse of what it must be like when your child is acting out in public and won't listen to you. It's so embarrassing! I think she is good practice in many ways.
That's is for now! Not much exciting going on. I'll try to figure out how to post some photos soon. I know that's alot more interesting!
