Spring Break is here!

Spring Break is here, and that means lots of things: gorgeous weather, lots of excited tourists, and friends! This is always the time that our friends start coming down to get away....which means that we get to catch up!

This week, we got to see our former neighbors, Sally & Ashley Hobbs, and Joy McMasters and her girls. We all ate dinner at Ribs & Reds, which has just come back to Gulf Shores since Hurricane Ivan. We had a great time catching up, telling funny stories, and hearing all about Sally's home remodel!

It's so fun to see old friends and find out what's new in their lives....we're already looking forward to their next trip down!


So much going on....

It has been so long since we've posted, but there's so much going on here! We rarely have a spare minute, but wanted to update you on some of what's been going on lately.

March has been another fast-paced month. When does time slow down? Apparently, it doesn't! We celebrated Randi's birthday on March 2nd at the Mellow Mushroom, one of our favorite pizza hangouts. Trust us, if Randi's picking where we eat, it will DEFINITELY be pizza! It must be where Tanner got her obsession with the world's most perfect food.

Tanner headed to Atlanta on the 13th for a small market. She had a blast getting to know the other reps better. They had fun at market, but also had fun eating at The OK Cafe (a must-try for true southern cuisine) and Maggiano's....which is a mandatory visit anytime the reps are all together in Atlanta! The food is great there, so good that the wait was over 2 hours long!

Bo's been super-busy with work lately, as the roofing industry has picked right back up! He's been meeting with roofers and contractors from Florida to Mississippi as their business grows. Luckily, Bo loves to drive and loves to talk, so he's in his element! He's in the middle of constructing a display for his shop, so a lot of his spare time is spent playing with power tools. Thank goodness he owns almost every tool known to man!

Belated Birthday Visit

Last weekend, we welcomed Paul & Jan (Bo's parents) to Gulf Shores. They came down for a belated birthday celebration, and we were so excited to have them.....especially since this was the first time they'd been able to visit!

We had fun sightseeing and catching up with them. We got to play tourist, which is always fun. We also enjoyed a group dinner with Tanner's parents, since we're lucky enough to have parents that get along so well. We hated to see them go....but are already looking forward to their next visit!

Walking on the beach in Gulf Shores......a must-do for every visitor!


The Big 3-0!

Wednesday was Tanner's 30th birthday! It was a great low-key day, spent exactly the way we like it! The weather was in the mid-70s, so Bo and Tanner spent the day goofing off, lunching at Sweet Pepper's, and sightseeing. For dinner, we met Tanner's parents for competitive trivia (if you haven't played, it's really fun!) at our favorite little bar & grill, Indigo Joe's. Then we ended the night perfectly....with cupcakes!

If the first day of being 30 was any indication, this is going to be a great milestone year. The hardest part might be deciding how to spend all these great gift cards.....decisions, decisions!
