Wrightsville Weekends

This past weekend hubby and I decided to leave the honey do lists behind and jump in the car for a weekend getaway.  Our favorite weekend hideaway spot is Wrightsville Beach, NC.  In Wrightsville, something magical happens to us when we cross the bridge into this small beach town. All the stress of the week or weeks melts away and it's always 5 o'clock here. We checked into our favorite boutique hotel the Blockade Runner and got the party started. 
Our sound side room was sooo adorable and charming.  As I have shared in other posts I have a small obsession with anything nautical so our room was PERFECT!
Does anyone know how to find this fabric... it must be mine!
We come to Wrightsville for the white sandy beaches and view of the beautiful sound.  The sound always reminds me of the coastal Massachusetts town that I grew up in. 
Friday evening we ventured into Wilmington and had dinner at Manna Avenue. The food was innovative and delicious. The Gin Gin Mule drink might have been one of the best drinks we have ever tried.
Saturday we did a lot of nothing which was the point of weekend. 
We looked out the window...
Drank a few of these...
Per hubby I dressed like the curtain...
Saw this from our window..
Outside temp is probably 45 degrees and this crazy man drove up, pulled up his shorts, walked into the water and stood there for at least 10 minutes.
no words...
Then we watched a beautiful sunset...
Ahhhh Wrightsville I love you!

Now we are back reality in the big city with all our big problems, boo!

Where do you go for a weekend to unwind and getaway?
