~ Vacation with my favorite people! ~ and Weigh in Wednesday ~

Hi friends,

Wow… I have been gone to long! Lets get caught up!

A few weeks ago Shane and I took off for our yearly motorcycle vacation. Hooked up the camper to the bike and off we go! Yep… during this heat wave. Man it was HOT! But we went anyway!


We headed down the Smokey Mountains to Maggie Valley, NC.


We spend our vacation here every year riding in the mountains.

Lovebirds. ♥


But this year was special! This year we met up with my best friend of 33 years, Tammy, and her husband, Bill, and spent the whole week with them!

This is Tammy and I up in the mountains!     


HOT! It was 100 degrees everyday if we left the valley! SO we tried to stay in it as much as we could!


Me… being a giant dork! HOT panting!


Beautiful lilies.


Besties forever!


Bill and Shane doing what they do… fixing stuff. They never stop! Tammy and I have a love/hate with their need to repair at all times!


I will be back soon with more vacation adventures! We rode the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Dragon and the Cherohala Skyway. We spent a day at Soco Waterfall and then another day in Jonathan Creek! So much fun!

Until next time…

Carmen and the Primcats

PS… Weigh in Wednesday catchup! I’m down 25 pounds since January 9th, 2012. I am still working out hard in Zumba, doing personal training and working on losing that last 10 pounds. :) I’m keeping at it!
Never quit!

What a great vacation! When our kids were 13 and 8, we went down the Blue Ridge to Charlotte. The scenery is breathtaking!! We were planning on moving down there until we found out they would bus the kids to the other side of the city. Brian still remembers the donkeys we petted on the side of the road while traveling down the Parkway!!Nice "lovebird"pic!! ;) --Jan

Yes you have been gone too long!
OMG I loved BlueRidge is so beautiful...especially on a motorcycle. I have never heard a thunderstorm like the one we had when we were echoed for hours.
All 4 of you must have had a blast Carmen!
Loved the pictures!

Congrats on the weight lost. I've lost 22 lbs, but need to lose about 10 to 15 more.

Ahhh, now that's the life. Motorcyclin' with the wind in your hair. The BR Parkway is wonderful, but air conditioning is even more so... lol.
