First Trip to Mobile!

We drove over to Mobile Wednesday afternoon from New Orleans. We hung out Wednesday night with some of Lauren's new co workers. Thursday, we woke up, Lauren and I ran and then we headed to the Foley, AL outlets. They were AWESOME! I got 2 new pairs of shoes from Nine West and a top and capris from J. Crew. Matt got some work clothes from JOS. A Bank. Lauren got a fabulous Coach bag for work. Then we went to the beach at Gulf Shores. Such a blast! Here we are at Felix's where we ate Thursday night! It was delicious!

Friday morning, we woke up and went on an air boat ride! It was one of the coolest things I've ever done.

Here are brother and sister waiting to boat ride.

Here's my man waiting to boat ride.

Here is one of the gators we saw. We probably spotted about 20. This one in particular let us take pictures of him for a while before going back under water.

Sitting at the top of the water waiting for fish to come by so he can eat them.

This is an Osprey next. It's giant! They just had babies.

Here is the family of Ospreys.

These are some American Lotus Flowers that were scattered along the river. There were probably thousands of them (obviously not pictured).

And here is one up close.

Here is our group! We had such a blast! Lauren and Zac have moved to a very exciting place! I can't wait to visit frequently!

Back to work tomorrow!


New Orleans

Matt and I just got home last night from our week long vacation! My sister moved to Mobile, Alabama last week and we wanted to visit her. So, we decided to go to New Orleans and eat our way through the city on the way to see them. We started Sunday and took our dogs to Memphis so that my parents could watch them for the week. Monday morning, we woke up and headed to New Orleans.

We got there and went to Domilese's and ate some yummy shrimp Po-boys. We had a nice dinner out Monday night at Emeril's Restaurant in the Warehouse District.

Here we are at Emeril's. I had a salad with sun dried tomatoes and pepper jack cheese, a delicious Shrimp and Grits dish with smokey bacon and mango chow chow, and sticky caramel toffee pudding cake. YUM.

Here we are outside. We ate so much that we had to just walk around for a while.

We encountered this fine gentlemen walking into the French Quarter. He came up to Matt and made a bet that said he could guess where Matt "got his shoes". We thought we had him stumped when he said that because we knew he "got" them in Little Rock. However, we he replied that he "got his shoes on the ground", we had to pay him $20 because Matt did, in fact, have his shoes on the ground. Touche, Mr. Shoe Polisher Dude, Touche.
The next morning, we woke up and went running. We ran to one of my favorite places on Earth- Cafe du Monde! AHHHHH!
Here they are- Cafe Au Lait and Beignets. Delicious.

Tuesday night, we met my sister and Zac at Commander's Palace. Mobile is only 2 hours away.

Here is my handsome hubby!

Here is our group. I had their Gumbo, Cherry Lacquered Pork Tenderloin served with grilled Georgia Peaches and Smokey bacon, and their cheesecake for dessert. Heaven.

Here is my sissy. I just love her so much. I don't even have the words.

Here we are huggin!

Had a blast in NOLA!
