Coastal living house colors! {Newbie party started}

We are back from our fun filled Coastal beach weekend!This is just a quick post I am putting together for the newbie party. Coastal living colors, are so MUCH fun! They are so cheery and bright! Against the Carolina Blue skies…how can’t you smile?

This is where we stayed.  It is a duplex style house, which is very common on Carolina Beach.

Very large at 2,800 sq ft.  Can you believe I did not take any pictures of the inside?

We were much too busy and in out every second.

These are the surrounding areas…all such pretty coastal colors.

This is down at the Beach…

We indulged in these donuts, hot…every morning.  Jack my younger boy ate 9 donuts in three days.

I know, I am bad mother!  He worked them off though, trust me.

He went bike riding several times a day.

For ONE single donut it was 90 cents.  Cash only, and they are only open 6 months out of the year.

Seriously, the best donut you could ever wrap your lips around.

I guess the sugar did not get to him after all!

Oh and Lucy had fun too.  My friend Lisa, has two dogs herself, so Lucy had fun playing all weekend.

Let’s get this party started for you Newbies now.

    What beautiful colors! Sounds like you all had a great time. :-) I miss living near the east coast. It has been years since I’ve been back there. Living in Texas, the closest beach is the Gulf about 8 hours away. Thank you for hosting your Newbie Party!

    Absolutely gorgeous! That first shot with the sky is beautiful! I could eat a whole box of donuts. I love them! They are my weakness. It takes everything I have to not turn the car into Krispy Kreme when the hot sign is on!

    I am so glad you had a good time, Debby! I think that a getaway was good for you-I know that last couple months have not been easy with the switch over in blogging and everything else that goes on in life with kids and a family. Blessings to you today! xo Diana

    I have to agree with the others. The coastal colors are really fabulous. Sounds like you had a blast. Donuts are a weakness of mine….glad I’m no where near those scrumptious looking yummies!

    OMG!!! I love their donuts. every summer during girls weekend we go get some. They are gone before we get back to our friends house. Unlike most donuts, if they last long enough to eat the next morning, they don’t get hard when you reheat them!!! Ok, I now have drool on my keyboard, ha!

    I love the color of the homes down there. They have a few red ones that I die over every time I see them.

    Thank you for hosting.

    The beach is my favorite place to be anytime! I can’t ever get enough of it. I am glad you enjoyed your much needed trip. You are a good mom-9 donuts in 3 days isn’t bad. It’s called “vacation food” :)
    Thanks for hosting a newbie party! What a great idea!

    Sounds like your family had a great little get-away in such a beautiful place! Love all those fabulous colorful beach houses! My mouth is watering for one of those delicious donuts!
    Happy Easter monday, I’m still feeling Easter joy, hope you are too!
    Be blessed! Linda

    Wow! Looks like a great place. I didn’t realize you were only staying for a weekend. It must’ve not been terribly far from home. Your dog, Lucy, is adorable riding in the back seat. We like to take our dog on trips with us too. Is that place reasonable? We’re looking for a place that takes dogs for our summer vacation. Would love to know more about it. Those donuts are calling my name too. I have such a sweet tooth!

    Hi Deb! It looks just wonderful there, love the colors of those houses! I’m glad you had a good time!

  12. says

    Girlfriend. Glad to see you got away to the beach. I know you had a fab time. Still here at the beach too. Finally, back home on Sunday. Scoot’s arrived to tell me my garden is in full bloom. Can’t wait to get back into the swing. This place looks great. May have to check it out for next year. Always, looking for someplace new. Off to see what else you have been up too here in Deb land.

  13. says

    Gorgeous colors! Sorta look like Easter egg houses don’t they? :-) Being at a beach is just heaven to me. I’m sure those donuts didn’t hurt at all with all the activities. They are very proud of them aren’t they? 90 cents is the tourist price I’m sure. Glad you had a fun weekend!

    Thanks so much for sharing!

    Oh my gosh! I can usually resist doughnuts, but your picture of one made me start salivating, like a dog! And I won’t be satisfied until I make it to the nearest Krispy Kreme. I’m so glad you had a wonderful time on your vacation. I seriously need some beach time, too!

  15. says

    Obviously you all have a fabulous day. Blue skies, big house and all beautiful surroundings. Oh, donuts are my favour. No worries for Jack ate a lot. He biked to burn energy. He should have eaten a dozen.

  19. says

    Love seeing such fun, colorful Coastal houses, Debbie! And, gawh, I think I just gained 10 lbs. *looking* at that yummy donut! Glad you guys had a great Easter weekend!

      That was a good one Bliss! My kid loves sugar, I can’t get it in the house…he would eat it 24/7. He does love fruit and veggies too though! It’s all in good balance.

  21. says

    Thank you so much for this opportunity. I am a borderline blogger for you criteria:) I do have more than 100 followers but I have only been blogging since Dec 2011. I just found your awesome and generous blog hop and wished I had found it sooner:( I am now following you on Linky Followers.

    Love the colors of these homes,. They say: ” come and relax here”the beach is close by “( in my head apparently they are talking house, giggle) Thank you for the linky xo

  23. says

    Thanks for hosting Debbie. Love the house colors you have in your post. I am almost at 100 followers but I think I may be able to post a few more times before I get to 100. I have really appreciated being able to add a post to your Newbie Link Parties.

  24. says

    I just found this via A Pickett Fence. Sadly, this party is closed for this week. But I will be back next week for sure! I would love to be able to get to know you “old” bloggers and learn from you all!!! You all inspired me to start my page, and now I am learning how I can hopefully inspire others! Thanks for doing this! Kristin
