Beach Blogging-Odds & Ends

PSA: non-DPT related post, but equally as exciting.

I BAKED MY FIRST CAKE PEOPLE! And it. Was. Amazing.  It was my best friend Ally’s birthday last Monday, and per her request we baked a double chocolate cake.  We used Lindsay of Life, Love, and Sugar’s Best Chocolate Cake recipe via Pinterest.  It’s certainly not diet-friendly, but everything’s okay in moderation, right?!  Probably the best part about this cake was that we frosted it while it was still a little warm in the middle so it became molten when we cut into it- YUM.  Highly recommended recipe!!

I’m currently blogging from beautiful Southport, North Carolina 🙂 Ally (Birthday gal mentioned above) was generous enough to invite me and two of our other close college friends down for the week to stay in her family’s vacation home.  Our trip has been filled with delicious food, good reads, warm weather, and great company.   I just finished reading Jojo Moyes’ (author of Me Before You) One Plus One.  It was such a great beach read!  I was so determined to finish it today at the beach that Ally & Becca noted it was the longest period of time I’ve ever gone without talking (gasp).

Donuts by the ocean??

On Wednesday we drove to Wilmington, NC for the day.  Becca was thrilled to visit the site of One Tree Hill.  We shopped around for a few hours and ate a huge lunch at Fork N Cork on Market Street.  If you’re ever in the Wilmington area definitely get a sandwich there; we were all stuffed from eating so much because it was so good we couldn’t stop!  We finished our Wilmington adventure with waffle cones from Kilwins-my favorite!

Friday night we drove back into Wilmington for some drinks.  We decided on the Liquid Room on Market Street-it’s a pub on the ground floor and a club upstairs!

Saturday was a beach day and sadly we are leaving to head back up north tomorrow.  Thanks Ally for the great vacation with even greater friends! Now we all (hesitantly) start creeping into post-grad life.


Keep On Dreaming,
