Ryan and I had a fabulous weekend sans kids.

We went to Boiling Spring Lakes to visit some fabulous friends.

We had a great time. We ate good food, drank good drinks, and just relaxed.

I know lots of you enjoy hearing about the food we eat (my Nana included) so here you go...

Friday night we had dinner at Fishy Fishy Cafe. For an appetizer, we had the Coconut Macadamia Shrimp with a spicy orange marmalade for dipping.
Ryan got a local sesame crusted yellowfin tuna served over mixed greens
and saffron rice with a sweet thai chili sauce. The chili sauce was nothing short of amazing!
I had shrimp and grits. It was sautéed shrimp, peppers & okra in a tasso ham sauce over stone ground yellow grits. Again, it was amazing!
The restaurant had a beautiful view. If you are ever in Southport, I highly recommend this place.

Saturday night we had dinner at The Dead End Saloon. We had mussels in garlic cream sauce with french bread and Old Bay chicken wings as appetizers. For my entree, I had a blackened mahi caesar salad that was delicious. Ryan had a Greek salad complete with tomato, onion, green peppers, black olives, cucumbers and pepperoncinis, topped with feta cheese, oregano and feta dressing. He enjoyed it.

Our friends are fabulous and so is the place they live. We had a short drive to the beach and laid out by the pier. Here is a list of awesomeness we saw in the short time we were there. We hated to leave because there was so much going on...
- We had the musical stylings of an air guitarist right in front of us for a good 30 minutes. He was complete with headphones and a cooler of beer.
- We watched people do backflips off of the pier. Not safe but fun to watch.
- We had mullets... the hair not the fish.
- We had cut-off sweatshirts that had been turned into muscle shirts. Classy.
- We had a skydiver parachute right behind our chairs.
- We had a DJ.
- We had a lady the size of Texas chugging vodka like it was water.

I left like I was in Cancun on spring break. It was so much fun. When we left at 5pm the beach was still crowded.

Thank you Brian and Kellie was a fabulous weekend. We will be back veryvery soon. ;-)
