Hello! My name is Jess and I love to do anything creative and artsy in any way. I'm always wanting to learn new methods and improve my skills, musically & artistically. I started blogging initially to share what was going on in my life, but now I am using it as a business tool, as well as sharing with my friends artsy fartsy things I've made and learned! I love to paint and make custom art, if there's anything you need, please let me know, I always love a challenge! I hope you enjoy reading, come back often!!
Well, we started out early this morning, leaving the Deitering's house around 7am. I was a pretty easy drive, not too long and it's a pretty drive, especially when you get into Mobile with all of the victorian houses, old oaks, and Spanish moss. We ended up arriving around 4pm. I took a few pics along the way to kinda chronicle our day:
I'm sure Mandy is gonna hate that I took this. She was engrossed in a movie on her ipod and I snagged the shot. I love you Mandy... :-D
OK, I posted this on FB, but basically we stopped at a small town Dairy Queen for lunch, and this place was next door. At first glance, I thought it said, "Te-Beaux's hot boiled catfish" and I announced how nasty that sounded to the group. Then, about five minutes later, I re-read it and realized it said "crawfish"...sometimes I'm a blonde. LOL
This is the view from our condo balcony right when we arrived. Ahhhhh...
Goin' out for the night...
This was a restaurant right on the beach and it was so cool! It doesn't look that big from the street, but we got inside and it was a huge place.
Walking in. - They had a ton of stuff outside for the kids too!
It's an open-air restaurant and it's got big glass garage doors that open up. Very neat.
Sorry this is blurry, we were walking in, and I was a bit rushed.
This fan was HUGE. It was made by a company called the Big "A" fan Co. I'll let you figure out what the "A" stands for. :) Anybody want a Pez?
Also at "The Hangout", they had collections of all kinds of neat things. This was in the hallway to the restrooms. TONS of old metal lunch boxes and thermoses. (or would that be 'thermi'?)
Another blurry one. It was getting dark. There was a live band playing (they were pretty good!) and this was to the right of the stage. It was a, "can you swing this rope and hook the loop onto the hook" game. I'm sure the employees just sit back and watch as people try this...
Anyway, that's the first day of our vacation-ness. It's been very relaxing and fun so far, and I can't wait to partake of more of this relaxing business...it's kinda nice!!
