Easter Weekend - Peeps and Road Trip

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter!! Mine was great - had Peeps for the first time... (can you believe it??!!) - and gotta say they are a bit too sweet for my taste... though I did have two in a row!! :)



Then, Friday morning, bright and early, we left for a road trip!! We drove south for about 6 hours to enjoy a walk on the beach!! Can you guess where??!!


This is a tradition - whenever we leave for a road trip - gotta take a self-portrait of Ben and me in the car!!

Your first peeps--congratulations. There really is such a thing as eating too many of those. I can't guess where you went, but I see there's no snow! Kind of looks like the Maine turnpike.

Mandy said...

WOW...your first peeps...that is almost as important as your first school dance in my opinion. And...like Becky said, that looks a BIT like Maine to me...I am guessing you traveled to Maine.

I used to love those things. Either they have changed or I am too old. ;P

Peeps are little sweet for me too--I feel like my teeth are withdrawing up into my gums after biting into one. Can't wait to see where you two went!!

I think I am the only one who dislikes Peeps! They are cute, though and so is your self portrait.

None of my family likes peeps, and I can only eat one or two, so we don't buy them anymore. 6 hours from Montreal, could be the east coast?

I want to see an album full of those self-portraits.! I love how carefree and spontanious you are-goes well with the haircolor.

Congrats on your first peeps!

Peeps are a bit too sweet for me as well! Great shots!

Not a fan of eating Peeps, but I do love the iconic aspect of them. :)

That sky is gorgeous!!

Erika said...

Love these! I don't like peeps either, but that first shot is cool!

I love your sense of adventure!
First your rookie tasting of peeps and then a six hour road trip for a walk on the beach!! I sooo wish I had more adventure in me!!!

Congrats on your first Peeps! I love them, but only at Easter!

I'm with you on the peeps, no thanks! Beautiful shots of your road trip, and I love the self portrait.

Shanna Jones said...

I never had peeps before...no idea what they even are!

Jess said...

SO fun! Looks like a beautiful drive on your road trip! And WOW, I can't believe you finally had your first Peeps- congratulations! I love peeps, but they are sooo sweet I'm like you, I can only eat a few at a time before I have to take a break, LOL.

Last year was my first Peeps (which I credit to POTD!) Did you go visit Becky? I love your tradition of self-portrait/road trip!
