South Carolina, Here We Come!


I am so excited.

Let me try that again...
I AM SOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!

We love to go to the beach in South Carolina. We have gone lots of times, with different groups of friends, and we always have a wonderfully relaxing vacation! Last year we didn't have enough people to go, so we opted to visit my good friend Amy in San Diego instead. Which, I may add, was an awesome time as well (if we leave out the airplane ride there), and we always look forward to visiting with Amy and her family and going to Disney, and the beach, and swimming in their pool, and meeting their friends, and....you get the point.

BUT, this year, we have a group of new friends that are geared up for lots of family fun at the beach!!!! Eight adults and 10 children, age 7 and under....wow! What a time we'll have! We have our house reserved (WOO HOOOOO!!!) and there will be plenty of "planning" meetings for we ladies between now and then. I can hardly wait!!!! Oh the fun we will have! We usually pick up sand toys and kites and beach balls at the end of the season, right before we go...so the kids always have something fun to do. And then there's always the myriad of putt-putt places to take the kids to...they LOVE that! One year, my SIL Amy went to one of the gift shops and bought sand dollars and starfish and things like that and set up a treasure hunt for the kids on the beach...oh the possibilities!!!!

And there is also one other reason I can hardly wait...I am planning to meet Kiki, face to face! Oh yes, I may just go do some shopping at the Gap, and since I am no fashionista, I will need lots of help! She just may be the person to help me out! Do you think it will be weird to actually "meet" a blogger buddy??? Would you want to, if you could???? Just wondering...

So, let me just say it one more time....
I AM SOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!

Now, I just have to make it five more months.... (sigh.)

Okay...we need to meet too. Gigi and I will be spending a lot of time in Southport, NC which is 30 miles north of the Grand Strand area, assuming you will be near Myrtle Beach.

If you are in the Hilton Head Area we could cross paths possibly when I go to Jekyll Island, GA.

Either way I would like to meet your crew and meet yet another blogger.

Have Fun! Your trip sounds like it's going to be a great time. I'm sure you can't wait to leave the Ohio snow behind.

I've often thought about meeting other bloggers. Sometimes I want to but then I wonder if it will ruin the mystique? Can't wait to read how it goes :)

I'm just not quite getting it...are you excited about this trip??!! <: )

I just know you're going to have a terrific time!

Sky Girl said...

That sounds like so much fun! We have spent a lot of time vacationing at Ocean Isle Beach, NC (not too far from Southport as Reggie mentioned) and that is such a great area for a vacation.

SIGH.... Sounds so good right now. No vacation this year for us this year. We'll have to consider the new house a vacation I guess.

Kuckie said...

Wreggie - That would be cool! If we can work it out...GREAT! We'll chat closer to August, ok?

Kate - Well, it's not til Aug, so there won't be much snow here, but it's always a good getaway at the beach!

CaliGirl - YES I AM!

Sky Girl - I can hardly wait!

Jenelle - Living in your new house will be kind of like a vacation...a vacation from the rental!!! And there's always next year, right?

Where are you staying? We are going also and my brother has a place in North Myrtle that he rents with a few other people and we may stay there unless I find somewhere else. They have delegated me. We are going over the 4th. If you can let me know what area or if it's even Myrtle I would appreciate the tips!!!!

kenady said...

You crack me up!! If you have time to head down to Charleston you could make a stop in my store as well:) We are only an hour and 45 minutes south of MB on hwy 17.


I'm sorry, did I make this about me? Oops! Hope you guys have a blast. And now I can't wait for the 5 months to pass!

Kiki said...

I think Kenady needs to come to the beach for your visit!!!

Kuckie said...

Kenady- I'd love to come see you at your store too, but to be honest, I think after making 26 hours in driving for that week, I will be done! But I think Kiki is right...you need to come up to the beach!!!
