Spending Time Doing What I LOVE!

Scrapping and Eating...

Just last weekend Kristin and I took 4 Scrappy Sisters on the road to Nags Head, North Carolina. We vendored and scrapped the weekend away with Scrapbook Escape Weekend Retreat, which is organized and hosted by Mary Full. She does a fantastic job. We will be the featured vendor at her next crop retreat in Virginia Beach the weekend of January 25 - 27. If you're interested in joining us please post me a note and I'll get you in contact with Mary.

Well seeing that I'd never been to Nags Head before that weekend, I was insistent that we visit restaurants local to the area. There was this one - not exclusive to Nags Head - but was an absolute must visit, if not for any other reason but it's name. "Dirty Dick's" - yep you read correctly - Dirty Dick's Crab House. Neither one of us really knew what to expect but when we arrived to a full parking lot we knew we'd made the right choice. The seafood was the absolute best I've ever eaten. I had crab cakes and - oh my gosh - they were at least an inch and a half thick with no visible breading just lumps of crab meat. Unbelievable! And don't even get me started on the hush puppies (homemade with real corn inside - ahhhh!!). Okay, I'm going a little over board I know, but when it comes to good food I just can't help myself!

Well, once we finished gorging ourselves, we made a quick pit stop at the Dirty Dick's souvenir shop. I just couldn't leave with out getting a little something for my man...check this out:

...come on ya just gotta laugh!

Chat again later!
