August was a whirlwind! We had a beach trip with some of Darin’s childhood friends to St. George Island. Then we had family in town followed by a birthday trip <<for Darin, to New Orleans. AND last but not least, we had friends in town. Geez, I’m wiped out just thinking about it. BUT it was all fun and I loved every minute of it. Well, minus the morning headaches but that’s typical when fun is involved.

New Orleans with Brittany & Matt:: I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I had grew up hearing of “Mardi Gras” but had no idea New Orleans was a non-stop party spot. I wasn’t ready.

This past weekend, our friends Victoria & Caio + Cord & Ashley came to visit. Unfortunately Darin & I had to work a good bit but we still soaked up time with them. Gulf Shores beach on Saturday:


Sunday Funday in downtown Mobile:


Evening seafood on the Causeway:


I’m recovering the weekends with a nice glass of pinot on the back patio. Won’t you come join me?


Meez would love to hang out with you too.


I’m ready for a relaxing weekend with the husband and maybe some exploring around town. While I love Summer, I’m kind of craving Fall. Pumpkin has made it’s come back and I’m already signed up. My newest cheap Starbucks drink: Tall Black Coffee + 2 pumps of Pumpkin Sauce. Yum.


What’s on your agenda for the weekend??
