General musings on the ups and downs and ins and outs in the life of a 30 something, unmarried, life loving, some times interesting and sometimes not, mostly happy girl just trying to figure it all out!

The Gal's Weekend

Mama, Aunt Karen, Aunt Joan and I hit Fairhope this weekend for some major girl time. Aunt Karen is my Uncle's girlfriend, who is almost an exact clone of my mother just with bigger boobs, and Aunt Joan is Mama's best friend from high school and college. I'm the princess- naturally!

We had a ridiculous (and I do mean ridiculous) amount of fun, drank gallons of wine and champagne, shopped, ate and went to the spa. We were all so partied out by Sunday afternoon when we hit the spa that we fell asleep in the quiet room of the spa... with our mimosas!

Playing in the trees and Christmas lights!
Aunt Joan double fisting (it's been a reeeeeally long time since she's been on vacation!) 

Wine I managed to spill all over my bed... klutz!

The line in the sand... 
That tiny spec in the middle is Aunt Joan swinging. Aren't the grounds beautiful??

My amazing new ring, which AC needs to take me on a date so I can wear again
80 year old couple Mama and Aunt Karen cut in on so they could learn to jitter-bug

Our weekend was amazing. We had a complete blast and lived it up. The time with Mama and my aunts make me so thankful for the friends I have and I am looking forward to future trips with my BFFS so we can relive all of our antics. 

Girls, in 30 years... it's ON!

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
