Highlights From OBX

Hey there!  Long time no see!  It has been, and is going to be, a crazy summer.

Among other things, I went to the Outer Banks last week (whee!).


My in-laws took Adam and me for a couple of days and we had a glorious time.  We beached,


climbed the sand dunes,




got a large chocolate-strawberry diet coke from Sonic that rocked my face off,


and met a Flutter Pony.


You don’t even want to know how excited I was about that damn horse statue.


We went to climb the sand dunes in between my spotting the pony and taking my picture with it and I muttered to Adam about The Smooze the whole time.  <– if you got that reference I will kiss you on the mouth

I know I’m behind the times, but I want to post some of our trip eats highlights anyway, mostly so I have a record of them for the next time we visit OBX.  This was a trip where sharing meant caring; the only meals Adam and I didn’t split were dessert!

Lunch at Mulligan’s.



Coastal Carolina She-Crab soup.


This was basically a giant bowl of crab meat; ah-maze-ing!  We also swooned over the sherry floater.

California style fish tacos.



Soft tortillas with local fried fish, cilantro-lime slaw, pico de gallo, and Cajun tartar sauce.  This was our first meal in NC and it set a great tone for the rest of the trip.

BBQ at Sooey’s.




Pulled chicken platter with cole slaw, hush puppies, and fried okra.





This stop was a repeat from my first OBX visit and I’m so glad we went back.  Those were the best fried okra I’ve ever had, I was shoving them into my mouth by the handful!

Breakfast at The Dunes Restaurant.


We got the Greek omelet (spinach, tomato, and feta) with asparagus.  It came with hash-browns and a side and since we were splitting they let us do one hotcake and one biscuit.  Even with two of us eating we couldn’t finish that giant plate of food.

Froyo at The Surfin’ Spoon.





Such good topping options! I got a little bit of yogurt with marshmallow fluff, peanut butter topping, bananas, and reese’s peanut butter cups.


Like a fluffernutter in froyo form!

Also, froyo at Wild Berry.


The yogurt flavors weren’t anything new, but the toppings bar boasted sweetened condensed milk!!!  I was definitely in heaven.

All in all, it was a tasty, terrific trip.

  1. Going to the outer banks is on my bucket list…like right up at the top. I think that toppings bar at the surfin spoon just moved it up a few notches. Glad you had a good time!

    • Last year was my first time ever but Adam’s family has gone there for years. It really is a great vacation spot!
