Lake Lure, NC vacay!

We had such a great time on Lake Lure. We had visited a few years ago and loved it. This year we wanted a relaxing, non-flying trip so we decided to rent a lake house. Now renting a house still means I have to cook and stuff but it's all good since I like cooking. We were also able to take Joss with us and that was huge because we did not want to leave him alone for a week. He is still a kitty and likes us around.

So we packed all our stuff and headed out on July 4th. The house we rented was small but comfortable. It had 2 bedrooms and one bath. There were several stairs down to the lake. I hated the stairs but the lake is amazing. I love lakes because there are no sharks. Plus, there are no waves and the water is fresh. There is nothing like a lake.

Basically all we did was get up and eat. Then we went down to the lake and got into our floats and hang out on the lake all day. It was super fun and refreshing. We would then come back to the house and eat and then go fishing at dusk. One day some friends came up and we hung out with them. Then one two occasions we rented a pontoon boat for a few hours and we went boating and fishing. '

Lake Lure is so beautiful and peaceful. It is wonderful there. I know if we had money, we would have a house there. It is our dream to one day retire on a lake. It's a lofty dream but you never know. Right now, we will settle for renting a lake house but, hey, that's good too!!

These are pictures of the house and the views from the house. More pictures tomorrow!

You're the Mayor of Shark City! #TBT

If you know that quote, you know one of my favorite movies. Here I am with my shark at Universal Orlando about 3 years ago. I think the Jaws ride has been shut down now and that's too bad because it was cheesy and fun!

Happy Birthday Mami!

Happy Birthday to my Mami! She is really a great mom. When I needed her this year to come help me during Tom's health problems, she came. She went over and above and I love her for it.
