My entire family is withdrawing. From what? From various addictions we picked up at the beach:
Habit #1: Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Our beach gang put away....get this...11 dozen doughnuts while we were there. The men would drive down most nights around 10 o'clock, when the "HOT" sign was on, and bring back doughnuts so soft and warm they just melted in your mouth. We would feast, talk, laugh, moan, rub our tummies, threaten to get sick, go to bed, and get up and have them again for breakfast. Come night time, the cycle would repeat.
Our entire beach gang gained some weight that week we were together. The most was 12 lbs... not me.. ...and the least amount was 1lb...again..(sadly)...not me. But I'll never again see another Krispy Kreme without lovingly thinking of those moments sitting around the table, gorging ourselves sick on those little round pieces of glazed Heaven.
Habit #2. Kirk's Ice Cream Shoppe Now, I guess this really isn't a HABIT, since we only had ice cream there once, but that was because it was a day or two before we left and had we discovered it earlier, we would have gotten more. This place is amazing. There are buckets after buckets of ice cream, and people just standing behind the counter with scoops in hand, waiting to make you the cone of your dreams. Seriously, when we walked through the door, it was like the gates of Heaven opened up, and the choir of Angels were singing to me. T got a waffle cone with coffee ice cream, J and D got cotton candy, and I got bubble gum..that had REAL pieces of bubble gum, by the way...with a scoop of cotton candy on top, all in a waffle cone, dipped in chocolate, rolled in sprinkles. Yes, I know I have the taste of a 5 year old, but it was HEAVENLY.
Habit #3 Dublin's Carolina Red wine. My husbands sister and brother in law turned us on to this wine. D and I love to try different wines, all while trying to find the "perfect" one for us. Well, this would be it. Sadly, we can not get this wine in Kansas, so we loaded up the suitcase with a few bottles for us to enjoy over the next few months.
I miss the beach. Withdrawing is hard.
