A Weekend with the Best

For Labor Day weekend my best friend Sam (since we were about 12 and she was my maid of honor) came to visit! She recently moved to Rhode Island and we haven't seen one another in almost two years so it was a MUCH needed visit. 

I showed her the house (and naturally the Dup was in love!) and then we spent most of the time catching up. 

Our first stop was Cook Out as its my favorite southern guilty pleasure not available up north. 

Then we went back to the house and spent time catching up and watching Doctor Who. As it got later we decided to drive down to my favorite dive spot, Buddy's, to get crab legs and walk on the beach. 

Sunday we had a bit of a lie in before I drove us onto base and showed her around before we spent the rest of the day on the beach. Sam went to school for marine biology so hunting for shark teeth was right up her alley! We found tons and then I hit the mother load...

Say hello to my first ever great white shark tooth!!!

But we are best friends for a reason... Well many.... But we are pretty similar in our likes. Like finding shark teeth, reading a good book on the beach and only really entering the rough surf briefly to cool off. Perfect day. 

After saying until nearly sunset we dragged our semi sunburned selves home to shower and make a gourmet dinner. Ricotta/spinach stuffed breadcrumbed chicken covered with mozzarella with basalmic broccoli and poor man's garlic bread. Bottle of wine included naturally. 

Another late night talking and watching Doctor Who followed. Monday was rainy but we went to Cracker Barrel and 2nd and Charles... Basically bumming around until it was time for her flight. Time flew by but this weekend was something I severely needed. Missing you already Sammy Sam!

The Dup misses you already!

And so do I!


  1. I love when I get time with my best friends! It doesn't happen as much now that I've got my tiny one but she's good about going places with me :)

  2. Glad you got some time with your best friend!
