One more week..

..and my packing is a fail!

Ahoy friends!

I'm back home from a wonderful past 4 days. As I said in my last post, how I would spend my time before leaving would be visits to the beach, shopping and just hanging out. Thats about all I've done.. ya know, life is tough. We had beautiful weather on Topsail Beach Thursday and Friday, squeezed 11 people in my grandparents' camper and had an absolute ball. There were the crazies who felt the need to take a dip in the ocean at 11:30pm.. power to them!.. and just hung out on the beach all day and got FRIED! Hopefully some gorgeous, bronze skin awaits us.

Saturday was bliss seeing as how I spent it with my very best friends. Allyson and I hit up the movies and saw Letters to Juliet, which was AWESOME.. and made me so excited to go to Europe.. then Miss Amanda met us in Mayfaire and we did a little shopping around. I had a first experience and was able to knock something off of my to-do list, which is to be disclosed... err, just know that it was a good day, fo real :)

Now yesterday was one of the most amazing dates I have ever had. Patrick and I drove down to Southport to catch a ferry over to Bald Head Island. I'm pretty sure the little green space right beside the lighthouse is inching its way to the top of places I'd like to get married. It was GORGEOUS and we had fabulous weather, thank goodness. We took our bikes down there and if I had to guess, we rode about 12 or so miles (there aren't any cars on BHI, only bikes and golf carts, which is SO COOL, they have garages just big enough for a cart :) ) We took a long walk on the beach and had dinner at an awesome restaurant right by the marina. Nothing like the man you love, beautiful sunshine and a basket of fried seafood to make a girl happy!

So here I am, back in my temporary room. One more week until I roll outta here! Its crazy to think that the time is finally coming up.. after all the preparations, the stress, the money.. this time next Monday I'll be on my way to RDU! HOPEFULLY the dang volcano holds up.. its only adding to my anxiety. Thankfully Heathrow is departing some flights, so its looking alright so far. Plus, theres still a few things on my packing list, so the frantic shopping hasn't ended either. My room is a DISASTER filled with piles and piles of clothes. Funny how I still figure I never have enough! But one good thing came out of this nasty weather we're having today and thats doing away with my procrastination!

Well, I suppose I'll get off here and get some work done. My stinky laundry basket and empty suitcase is hollerin' at me!

Ciao peeps,
Courtney
