Big South

Ari and I just arrived by car in Atlanta, Ga.

We are here for thr "Big South" volleyball qualifier tournament. They are hoping to de well enough to win a bid to go to Nationals in June.

We just finished dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and have checked into our room and settled in to watch Greys Anatomy.

We are in HEAVAN... on the way to the Cheesecake factory, we drove past a Chipotle... 

All I ca say is this, It's a good thing we are here for three days because this trip might turn into a food crawl by default. South Alabama has some decent resturaunts but not some of my all tme classic favs.

I promise to pace myself... I swear.

Good luck girls!! Stay humble.

The following are tips on how to get something you want.

Stand and give a good stare. 

If that doesn't work then sit and tilt your sweet head from side to side
to see if anyone notices how cute you are. 

 And if that doesn't work then blame your dumb brother for looking too pathetic.

If all else fails then give up and go find a lizard behind the BBQ to chase.

A Little Late

I'm just getting around to writing a new post.
Stacy left over a week ago.
I've been burried up to my eyeballs in baseball, softball and volleyball.
While she was here she drug me into every thrift store that had a pulse and made me inhale "old" stuff smells. 

Then we drug her butt to Aligator alley to give her a nice healthy dose of the deep South.

Yep them there are gators sunning themselves on the banks of the river.

This guy was missing his right arm but looked happy all"spread eagle" in the sun.

They give swim lessons here at Aligator Alley, free too!! Cuz we're nice like that down here.

11, 1, & 4 also happen to be feeding times for the gators.

Stacy pointing to the gators over her shoulder

Love the horses in the background of the gators.

                                                  Aligator alley also had some really cool long horn cattle.

And a friendly donkey

AFter gator alley we spent the afternoon eating lunch at a col place that sits along one of the many riverbanks in Southern Alabama. The food and atmosphere were great.

Stacy Is Here!!

Big sister Stacy is finally here!! 
We've started the food crawl, started with Panini Petes. We got our food to go since the wait was too long and went down to the water and ate in the car and watched the birds and the bay. It was perfect!

So happy the tulips are still in bloom.

She made me take her to a few thrift stores. I held my breath and happily obliged.
I'll admit that shopping in thrift stores isn't really my thing.
My sister is very creative and super crafty. I'm sure she'll make some super awesome stuff out of the cool glass pieces she bought. stay tuned.

More to come from our weekend later.

And now...
he is so loved.

He has a new girlfriend...

They wrestle all day long. and love on each other.

She grooms him all the time.

He's learning the rules of the house.

Like how to sit before breakfast and dinner.
And he's learning how to take down a Weimeraner

And make her say "uncle".
