OBX (Outer Banks) or BUST!

Well, it's that time of year when our closest friends and their families (THIRTEEN OF US)voluntarily drive 6 hours to North Carolina for a week of nothing but relaxing and having more fun than all the days of the previous year put together! And we do it in a GIGANTIC house! Seriously! We start the countdown the day we leave the previous year! And now it is 2 days away!

Friday is our church's monthly FAMILY production called FX. My 3 BFFs are major components to the event and 3 of the 7 kids heading to the OBX will be worshipping on the worship team. And SWATCOP is one of the actors...maybe I will sneak a video in if I can get one without him knowing! How bad do you want it? Then at 2am Saturday morning we will be packing up 7 kids and some tired parents into the car for a middle of the night drive to the Outer Banks!

Remember THIS?

Get the rest of the story HERE!

Yep, that's why we go! I can't tell you how therapeutic it is for all of us to spend time decompressing and letting go...nothing to worry about, no work, no school, no NOTHING! Just 7 days of nothing but FUN!

I am so thankful for our family of friends...we truly are like family. I am truly BLESSED!

AND AND AND....ladies, the MEN COOK the entire week! How many of you can go on vacation and NOT COOK ONCE?!! ME! ME! ME!

Yes, SWATCOP will be there! Tell me how badly you want to see the incriminating photos and maybe you will get a sneak peek! He's a riot!

Sorry for my distance this week...I have missed you all...but I am busy getting ready! I am hoping for good WiFi this year so I can keep you updated on all of our festivities...please say a prayer for our safety! Excited to soon be posting from North Carolina!! :)
