Tailgating (Hamlin Style)

Last night, Katie and I were discussing what we should do for an hour and a half while we wait for Amanda's plane to land Friday night. My flight gets into Pensacola at 9:30 and Amanda's at 11. By the time I get off the plane and out of the airport, the mall and Target will be closing. There are no good bars near by, not enough time to see a movie. We considered Chili's but knew we'd spend too much on food and alcohol and possibly not be able to drive back to the airport.

Eventually, we reached the obvious conclusion- we would tailgate! Friday night, airport parking lot, Kate and me + margaritas. We are going to tailgate in anticipation of the reunion of the Hamlin Girls. It's on.

This is not the first time this has occurred. One time Katie and I went to Walmart to buy some groceries and a huge pack of TP. At some point we lost Katie's keys in WalMart. So we bought beer and sat on the tailgate while we waited for Daddy to rescue us.

Naturally, Amanda will partake immediately upon arrival. The good news is that she travels with our DD, chaperon, and mascot.

See ya in the parking lot peeps!
(PS- AC, you may want to watch the airport security footage the next morning)

All About Ashley

Spring, TX, Southern, United States
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!
