Well, the warm and sunny weather was nice while it lasted. We’re already back to dreary and rainy. My plants can certainly use the water, though!

Even though this picture is from last year, the plant outside has some little baby cilantro leaves, just like this!   You know what that means... fish tacos and fresh guacamole are not too far behind!

Rich and I drove to Wilmington yesterday to meet with a potential wedding officiant — and what a successful trip it was! We immediately felt at-ease when we met him. All of the stress surrounding the wedding ceremony simply fell away. We couldn’t be happier.

While on Topsail Island in the evening, we were able to enjoy a walk on the beach before the clouds rolled in and the temperature dropped.

Richard found his first-ever shark tooth! He happily added it to the impressive and ever-growing collection at my parents’ beach house.

We got entirely caught up on sleep.

Sometimes you just need a really good sleep-in, wouldn’t you agree? You know, a morning with no alarm clock staring back at you. Plus, being on a mini-vacation, it’s always nice to not be woken up by cats licking you or using the carpet as a scratching post.

Seriously, though. I’m a firm believer that sleeping-in can do wonders.

Breakfast

We cooked up a delicious hearty breakfast before hitting the road to head back to Apex this morning. A maple almond Wolferman’s English muffin with butter, fried eggs with Old Bay seasoning, and Morningstar Farms veggie sausages. Yum!

Coffee

In other news, I’m currently enjoying the caffeinated beverage shown above.

This evening definitely calls for cozying up with some of those magazines that I mentioned in my last post (yep, still so far behind), pinning recipes, and doing some meal-planning for Richard’s Mum’s visit next month.

Whew, it’s crazy to think that April will be here before we know it!
