We spent 2 nights in Myrtle Beach over Memorial Day weekend (yes, it was black biker week) to celebrate Frannie's last single days.  We had an amazing time - obvi!  We got there Friday, went straight to the beach, had a few beverages, ate pizza in the hotel room, had a few more beverages, and then headed down to the hotel bar by the pool.  Apparently, we were there for 2 hours but my mind leads me to believe I was there about 20 minutes. I ordered shots of water if that tells you anything. :) I also have a large hematoma on my left knee from tripping (and falling) over the fence trying to get to little Fran sitting near the ocean all by her lonesome. I got to her, after much pain and effort, and immediately, she stood up and left me. A giant bruise for nothing!

Some of those crazy girls woke up at 7am on Saturday. You heard me right - 7am! They tried to get us up but we weren't having it until at least 9:30.  After we peeled ourselves away from the covers we headed down to the beach and stayed there until 5:15.  We had dinner reservations at 7:00 at Chesapeake House and OMG was it delish.  I had fried shrimp, flounder and crab cakes!! Mmm - I am getting excited to go back to the beach in August JUST so I can eat fresh seafood again. I also had a massive amount of hushpuppies and the mystery "fish stew". Anyway, dinner was followed by bar hoping (and crawling) over to Broadway at the beach.  I don't remember every going there before and I think it would best be described as a bar mall.  It was so much fun - and the rest will just have to be left up to your blogger following wondering minds. :) 

Fran's awesome suit thanks to Emily!
We learned passing around a bottle of wine on the beach was not ok

I know, I know, I've been totally MIA.  I've been working on the new WPP blog + catching up with all the work we've accumulated so this blog has taken a major hit.  Plus, I'm not working nights at Duke anymore and that's where I did a ton of blogging. I'm still at WakeMed and still loving it.  My schedule is kind of crazy, signing up for shifts, get cancelled, then called in, blah blah.  All is well as long as I work at least 24 hours a week.  So far I've been working 36+ so this makes the hubs happy. :)

Last weekend we went to Myrtle Beach for Fran's bachelorette party - I'll be blogging + posting pics on this soon. I headed up to SML for Sunday and Monday and had a great time with the fam-in-laws.  Our photog business has been soooo busy.  Currently, we are working on changing our name and completely rebranding our whole business.  When we started Windy Peak we had no idea we would cater towards weddings as much as we do.  Since we have found our niche, we want our name + logo + website to feel more bridal/wedding ish. You feel me?  I can't let out any secrets just yet but I have a few surprises up my sleeves!
