North Carolina Day 3

Day 3 of our trip was Saturday. Jess didn't have to work so after I got up I went for a run. I really enjoyed all my runs while I was there even though I mostly just ran up and down the same road.


The sides of the roads all have these small irrigation ditches so people have creative markers by their driveways.

When I got back we made a big breakfast. Ivory visited with me for a bit, she's about 6 months old, isn't she cute?

Then we decided on going for a ride to the Crabtree Mall. I'm pretty sure we went to the mall so Jessica could take advantage of my Victoria Secrets card, but I could be wrong ;)

While we were there I noticed that there was an area where you could get a chair massage. My neck and shoulder had really been bothering me every since we went on that long bike ride. I decided to take advantage of it, because hey I'm on vacation!  $18 and 15 minutes later I felt like a new woman.

We ate lunch in the food court. I was good and got a 3 salad plate from an Italian place. Score for me!

After that we drove back home for a bit and then went over to Ariel's aunt's house. Ariel's brother was moving to Florida so his aunt had a little get together for them before he left. When we got to the house (which was really cute I'm kicking myself for not taking a picture), we hung out for a little bit and then took the golf cart and went out to "the creek" where the girls like to take the dogs to play. They said the creek was down a little bit but the dogs still loved it. They ran around and around through the woods and then through the creek having a great time.

I found a little tree to sit on after a bit. I just had to make sure and get out of the way when the dogs started to run at me!

I kept seeing these HUGE spider webs. I posted this picture on Instagram and people told me that it's not actually a spider that makes them but a "webworms". I looked them up and they are pretty disgusting.

How about a cute little mushroom instead?

Here's Ivory getting dried off a bit by Jess

After that we went back to the house for dinner of hamburgers, beans, coleslaw, potato salad and chips, and key lime pie. Good thing I had a salad for lunch ;)

Eventually we went back to the house, changed into our stretchy pants and watched a movie in Jessica's room. We watched Silver Linings Playbook, which was really good.

I tried to go to bed earlier so I could get up early the next day so we could go to the coast but I still ended up staying up late.Pin It

We have 'creeks' here too... sometimes called streams too.
Rivers are deeper and faster and bigger than a creek.
