Orange Beach, AL

This past week was vacation week with my family. We went to Orange Beach, Alabama. The beaches were beautiful and we all had a great time. I already miss listening to the waves crashing, so peaceful.

Here is a glimpse of what all we did...

We spent a lot of time at the beach and pool. I know these are tiny pictures, but there was no way I was going to be able to share all of these separately.

The boys went on a fishing trip and we had a feast of fish that evening for dinner.

While the girls went on a shopping trip :) We are at lunch at The Shrimp Basket, yum!

Putt-Putt and games one night. I lost, but I always love a good game of Putt-Putt.
Jesse and I also got to check three new states off our list:

Louisiana (This is a place holder picture until we go to New Orleans), we thought this was somewhat appropriate.

Florida (another place holder pic, we are going to Key West in the fall).


Does anyone have vacation plans for this summer? If so, please share!

A Busy Weekend

It's that time of year, the time for graduations! My brother graduated from Oklahoma State University medical school this past Friday and our family could not be more proud of him and his accomplishments. He will be in residency for the next five years as a general surgeon.

His wife, Lindsey, put on an awesome party! The cake was so neat.

I loved the mason jars with the orange straws.

A closer look.

Ty with the sisters.
I also have to congratulate my BBF, Julie, from graduating from the University of Oklahoma Health Science Center. Julie graduated with a masters in Occupational Therapy. We celebrated with pedicures :)
Aside from celebrating all of the graduations, I got to see two (out of three) of my best college friends, Lauren and Chelsea. It was great catching up and we missed the 4th member of our crew, Ashley. I also went on an adventure with my niece and nephews to find the Dinosaur rock. This picture was just too cute not to post :)

Success! Just use your imagination. It looks like a Brachiosaurus or according to the Land Before Time, a Long Neck.

I had a great weekend seeing family and friends and the fun will only continue next week when we go on vacation with my family. Can't wait to soak up some sun!

A Successful Birthday

I had a wonderful 25th Birthday. Thanks to everyone for all of the b-day wishes!

Here's a brief recap:

I slept in.

Went shopping.

Bought an outfit.

Opened presents.

Went to Studio Movie Grill- A place where you watch a movie and they serve you dinner.

Ate a piece of cookie cake.

Stayed up late because I could.

A few random gifts from the husband. I think he thinks I am obsessed with the whole Will and Kate thing.

From left to right: paper dolls, Time magazine, Puzzle

Not the best picture, but here we are at Studio Movie Grill

And finally, the cookie cake, yum!

Twenty Five

Due to a very special day, I decided to share 25 facts about myself:

  1. I like vegetables.

  2. My favorite color is green.

  3. Favorite activity is shopping! I promise I am not that materialistic, I just think it is fun, even if I don't buy anything.

  4. I have always had a hard time determining what "my style" is, I just buy what I like and what fits.

  5. I feel my best when I am in a pair of jeans and t-shirt.

  6. I think vacations are fun no matter where they are. Any break is a good one!

  7. I am afraid of the ocean, but not the beach :)

  8. I have started running again, we will see how long it lasts this time.

  9. Painting my toe nails in the summer always makes me happy.

  10. When I was little I wanted to own a grocery store and also be a florist.

  11. I don't know what my dream job would be, but I know what I want to do. Does that make sense?

  12. I started watching Lost. All seven seasons are on Netflix instant. I am on Season 4.

  13. Last book that I read was The Help in January. I would recommend it.

  14. Currently searching for a new book to read. Any recommendations?

  15. I used to love going to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned, but my last appointment was not so fun so I have decided not to like it anymore.

  16. I wish I had the skill to be a photographer, a cake decorator, a florist...really anyone with a creative eye.

  17. I have never colored my hair and never will. Well, I may be singing a different tune once that first gray hair comes in.

  18. If I had the guts to color my hair I would color it a deep red, but I am all talk.

  19. I love swimming.

  20. I could eat chocolate everyday for the rest of my life.

  21. I would rather bungee jump than sky dive.

  22. I desperately want to go to Ireland someday.

  23. I would rather bake than cook.

  24. Bad habits: I bite my nails and play with my hair.

  25. I love birthdays! And today just so happens to be my 25th birthday :)

Let's all eat cake!
