Miss me?

Hello lovelies.  Miss me?  I know I am a bad blogger and have been away far too long.  Remember that pesky little cyst that decided to burst last year?  Well it got bigger and it was time to have it removed.  So back on the 20th I went in for a little surgery to have it removed and have been resting and taking it easy since.

I have LOTS of blogs to catch up on, my reader is out of control!  I also have lots of things to post about, but it's going to take me some time to get them all sorted out- lots of work to do!

In the meantime I wanted to share with you some photos I took from a recent day trip.  The husband and I were craving some real Maine lobster, so we hopped in the car and drove up to Kennebunkport, Maine for the day.


mmmm, the hubby's fresh Maine lobster

I went for the lazy girls version, and just had a lobster roll

The view from the restaurant was stunning. As you can tell from the following photos,  I was having a good time playing with all the functions on our little camera.




On the way home we decided to drive down Ocean Drive - the houses are out of control amazing!  There is even one famous house on Walker's Point


The Bush family compound

Clearly the President was home because his boat was out and there were secret service EVERYWHERE. 


The hubby was getting such a kick out of seeing the secret service that he made us sit there for a good 10 minuets to watch.  Wouldn't you know it, cars started leaving the compound and all of a sudden the President and Laura were driving right by us!   Many cars in the entourage and lots of jacked secret service men, but Laura still looked over and waved!  Supporter of the President or not, it was pretty cool to see him in the flesh.

All in all it was a beautiful day and not a cloud in the sky.  I can't wait to get back up to Maine soon so I can enjoy some real Maine lobster on the ocean soon.

ooo, I had a ruptured cyst once and it is NOT a fun situation. I'm sure that lobster roll made up for it though!

Welcome back! Hope you're feeling better! Kennebunkport is so pretty; we went last year for a long weekend. I haven't had a lobster roll yet this summer and that picture is making my mouth water!

I'm sorry to hear that you had to have surgery. Hopefully you're starting to feel better! I went to Kennebunkport a few years ago and it was so much fun. It looks like you guys had a fun time too! And that's awesome that you got to see the President and Laura Bush.

We missed you! That lobster roll looks absolutely amazing, by the way. I've never had one and I'm dying to try it!

What was the name of the restaurant you went to? I want to eat that lobster roll! Well, not that specific lobster roll, but another one just like it. YUM!
