Weekend Review: Beach Weekend

    This past weekend we had some friends from college in from out of town. All three of the guys were in the same program at school and lived together through out college. It was great to hear the guys retell stories of their younger days and the shenanigans they got into.
    Living in the town we went to college in always has its ups and downs. Sometimes we forget how nice it is to have the beach at our doorsteps because we have been here so long. On the flip side when friends come into town we can visit all the old college haunts that we never go to anymore!
   On Friday night we went out to dinner at the guy's favorite restaurant Bodobos. It is a Mongolian Grill where you can create your own bowl of stir fry with limitless combinations of sauces. They went here so much in college that the wait staff always their drink and soup orders. The owner still recognizes Joe when he comes in.  This is also the restaurant that Joe and I first met at after helping with UNCW move-in my Sophomore year. Something he is not proud of now but it makes for a good story!

    On Saturday, we spent time out on the boat and at the beach. The island was not crowded at all. It was almost like having our own private sanctuary. 

That night we headed to another one of the college haunts, Big Daddy's. To make a long story short, the guys stumbled upon this restaurant when they were out at Kure Beach one day and decided to keep coming back. This was my first time joining them for dinner. To be honest, the memories and company was much better than the food. However, it was made up for by hearing many more stories and catching up with friends.

     Unfortunately, everyone had to head home early Sunday morning. So Sunday was spent hanging out with Charlie and catching up on housework while watching Breaking Bad. I can't believe it's in the final episodes! It is so crazy to watch the characters change over the seasons.  I am also really enjoying the flash forwards at the beginning of the show. Anyone else watch last nights episode? I already am looking forward to next week.
