Labor Day Relaxin’

Is it just me or do 3 day weekends seem soooo much longer than the typical 2 day weekends? I vote for every weekend to be 3 days. We’ll see how well that goes over with the boss man…

Our Labor Day weekend started off with a visit from Chelsea! She came into town Friday evening so we all headed downtown for a few drinks at Cape Fear Wine & Beer (AKA the boys’ favorite downtown bar and our typical weekend hangout spot). Then we got to enjoy a beautiful day at the beach on Saturday. The water has cooled down a bit, but it was gorgeous. The water closest to the beach was an aqua blue color and reminded me of how lovely a tropical vaca would be sometime in the near future. Winking smile

We also spotted this guy… A parasailer with an attached motor and no boat? Has anyone ever seen one of these before? It looked like a ton of fun but I’d be nervous to try it!

It was great to catch up with Chelsea. From the sound of it, nursing school is keeping her one busy little bee!

On Sunday, Shelby and I headed up to Raleigh to visit Sage, Ryan’s sister-in-law. Ryan’s brother Justin (who happens to be Sage’s husband) came down to Wilmington to keep Ryan company while Shel and I were gone.


When Sage offered me a guest pass to Skin Sense Spa in Raleigh a couple weeks ago, I immediately said YES! Since the guest pass can only be used Monday through Friday, I lucked out by having Labor Day off work and getting to share a spa day with Sage instead. In addition to enjoying the spa’s sauna, I got a Vitamin C facial while Sage got a hot stone massage. Needless to say, we didn’t want to leave that place… So relaxing!

And now it’s already Wednesday! Long weekends make for short work weeks, which are A-OK in my book! Smile
