Sweet Home Carolina!

Whew!! What a weekend!!!! We had an absolute blast in Gulf Shores, Alabama but I'm glad to be home!! Last night on the way home I drove through a flippin' monsoon in Atlanta! I was scared to death because I couldn't see 2 feet in front of me but luckily it didn't last long. We got home safe but I feel like I need a second weekend now to rest! ;)




I hope y'all had a great weekend too!! Did any of y'all watch the Jimmy Buffett Concert live on CMT?? My dad recorded it so it'll be fun to watch it from a different point of view. I was pretty disappointed that no one else showed up to help Jimmy out!! It was still a great concert though. The beaches down there are absolutely beautiful and the people are all so nice. Here's some pictures from our weekend!!







The view from our condo! :)














We found some oil on the beach. :(








Ping Pong at The Hangout







Our first concert in the sand!







Please excuse my husband...








Fins to the right!!





























We met some great people!!






George!!!






I even randomly found one of my blog friends, Ashley from Miss Ashley In Mississippi!! Unfortunately, our photographer took a video instead of a picture...so this is all I have! LOL

And I am saddened to say that as hard as we both tried...Shannon over at Webbisodes and I were not able to meet. :(  We were in the same place at the same time but cell service does not hold up well in crowds. We had a heck of a time getting a text message to go through. Sorry we missed each other girl!! I hope we can visit y'all some day soon!




Thank you all for entering my giveaway!!! If you haven't entered yet, you still have a week to do it!! Click here! And for those of you doing The Love Dare with me...I hope y'all have been nice to your spouses this week!! I can't wait to hear about the nice things y'all did for them. :) Have a great day!!

  4. I can't believe you made it to the concert!! I've been seeing it on the news for the past couple of days. So much fun!! And yes, driving in that kind of weather is no fun at all... it's actually quite miserable! Did you get white knuckels like I do??

  8. Oh, that oil makes me so sad :( I heard it's starting to seep into the lakes in Louisiana. I really hope that's not true.

    I'm glad you had such a fun time and for such a good cause :)

  25. So sad we missed each other. I was so peeved with the ATT&T I wanted to through that darn iphone in the Gulf!!! The concert was awesome, but like you wished that he would've had a few other guests perform, but oh well! We got what we paid for....haha! :)

    We WILL meet one day for sure! We'll make it happen!

    Love the pics you sent. I'll send you a few of us too!

    Take care, Amy and talk to you soon. Thanks again for the tickets!
