the last night, we all headed to the beach for the sun set and saw this awesome fishing boat pass by


The family and I were able to make A MILLION memories. I really did miss them all when we came home. It was all too quiet, but don’t worry, we will see each other in a bout 10 days haha

Beach Bum

I swear I don’t have many more posts about the lovely beach, and how much I miss it haha

Besides getting sick with a 102.8 degree fever, and having to start antibiotics, it was a great trip. Although St Louis’ weather is in the 70s and really nice!

The one thing I will change would be to bring my bike. I didn’t get much exercise, and I was definitely feeling it when I got home. Although, my body probably appreciated the rest (just not the million M&Ms)

Question for you:

What is one thing or person you miss right now?

-Andrew is at the lake with his dad. He has been gone for 2 days. I think I missed him the night he left haha. Luckily, he will be back on Sunday! HIS BIRTHDAY!

Sand, Sun, and feeling at home

After driving to Mississippi, it was time to make it to the beach!

First, we made it through my favorite underwater tunnel in Mobile Alabama


After sitting in HOURS of traffic, we FINALLY made it!!!

We unpacked the car, and headed to the beach!!! Riding in our OWN sweet golf cart


(weird angle of me, but my nephew’s face is awesome!)

on the way!




I am officially home 😉

Question for you:
What is your favorite place to visit?



Back from the beach



After a 6Am wake up call, 12 hours of driving, 4 stops, the family is back  in St Louis

To say I’m happy to be back, would be a bit of a lie.


The vacation was amazing! And definitely what I needed

It will be nice to sleep in my own bed, and get back to healthy eating. But thats about it haha

I will have a few posts coming up with all our great pictures!


I already miss my parents, my two brothers, sister in law, future sister in law, and nephew. It is TOO quiet here haha

Question for you:

What did you do this weekend?

Are you going on vacation this summer?


Vacation Location

Following our 13 hour day of traveling, we finally arrived at our condo!

My mom found an amazing deal for a condo at the Gulf Shores Plantation.

I wanted to share some not so awesome pictures, but I hope you guys get the idea!

Our is the peach colored complex 🙂

Andrew trying to get out of the picture haha…not quite

Andrew looks in pain, Im not sure why….

Our room 🙂

I’m so glad I don’t have a twin bed anymore haha.

Of course, there was this sign right outside our place.

DANGER. Alligators are not pets. Stay back and do not feed.


Question for you:

Would you rather stay in a house, condo, hotel, or some other place when traveling?

The start of the road trip

Hey everyone! It is so good to blog again, but was great to take a week break…if that makes sense….

Anyway, Andrew and I are home from the beach. It was AMAZING!!! I REALLY want to go back. Well I didn’t want to come back at all haha.

I hope you enjoy all the amazing recipes while I was gone haha. But now I need to catch you up on the trip 🙂


Rewind to Monday morning, when my dad, Andrew, and I headed out of town at 5AM!!! eek. It really wasn’t too bad, but I made sure to have my gas station coffee

old photo

The trip was pretty uneventful. We found a nice park to have lunch

And Andrew was able to play and run around

Later that afternoon, he announced that it was time for a nap, and then slept for 2 hours!

I drove almost the whole way, so I only have these two pictures of the USS Alabama

And the tunnel through Mobile

We FINALLY arrived around 7pm, and had subway for dinner, went for a walk on the beach, and then passed out!

to be continued…
