Weekend Recap: First Beach Weekend

This weekend was so much fun and the weather was perfect for our first weekend at the beach and a wedding! My cousin got married at Topsail Beach and it was perfect!


We started off the weekend with two of our best friends with a double date in Downtown Raleigh. We finally tried Gravy and it did not disappoint! Timothy and I went with Whitney and Jim and fell in love with this restaurant. I had the Lasagna, Timmy had the Family Gravy, Whitney had the Chicken Parm and Jim has the Tagliatelle ala Bolognese. We all enjoyed our meal with some cocktails before heading down to The Big Easy for a few after dinner drinks. Then went home and crashed.

We got the Risotto Balls as an appetizer and their marinara sauce is delicious!


We woke up fairly early, earlier than I had planned on waking up, and packed and headed to North Topsail Beach for my cousins wedding! But before we headed to the hotel we had to get some fresh seafood from the beach so we stopped in at this little beach restaurant in Surf City called Sear's Landing. It was so nice to be able to sit out on the deck and watch the boats go bye. I could live at the beach for about a month or so then get bored of it, but it is so nice to be able to sit outside and have that scenery. 

Before our food came, of course we had to have some lunch cocktails. And then the deliciousness of seafood came out! I got scallops and OMG were the delicious!

After lunch we decided to take a walk on the beach. The weather was perfect - not to windy and not to hot. If we had had more time we would have laid out but there just wasn't enough time.

Finally it was time to head to the wedding! It was a casual wedding since it was going to be down on the beach, but then when we got there they had to move it up to the area where the reception was going to be because they couldn't get the music to play down at the beach. It was still gorgeous though! Our family has been waiting for this day for so long! I am so happy to officially be able to call Katy my cousin! 

The food was delicious and the company was great! After the wedding we went out with my other cousin and some of the bridal party, the bride and groom stayed at their suite. Congrats Robert & Katy!
