    Weekend Adventures in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

    I went to Myrtle Beach for the first time ever in my life. Which is really odd if you live in the south, because everyone goes there a few times a year. Like if I want to go to a beach, I’m going to Topsail on the NC coast, where I have family. However for my friend, Heather’s birthday we went for a girl’s weekend. The trip overall was amazing, minus the horrible “hotel” we got through Hotel Tonight. I’ll save that for last.

My husband had went several times as a child and wanted our kids to experience this as well.  I have to say, this is one of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen and it makes it even better that I got to share this with my children.  There were several hotel/motel options around the resort but we decided on the Lodge that is right by the Natural Bridge. It is an older lodge…

    6 Bar Crawl Survival Tips You’ll Be Thankful For

    Have you ever gone on a bar crawl? Let me share some bar crawl survival tips with you that will make your night more memorable. A few months ago for St Patrick’s Day, I did a bar crawl in Chapel Hill, NC and it was amazing! I had a total blast.
