Home Sweet Home

On Friday Tom, my mom, my brother Shane, his wife Emily, their daughter Eliza Grace and I set out on a mini family vacation to Gulfport, MS to see my paternal grandmother and uncle. We had a great time! We went out to eat, shopped the outlets and took EG to the beach for the first time! My grandmother doesn't remember any of us (she's 88) but it was nice to see her and visit with my uncle.

View of the pool...definitely too cold for that!

Shane and Tom ATTEMPTED flying a kite

Tom and I both work for a hardware distributor, Orgill. He made me go check out one of our stores down there! He is a definite hardware dork! :)

One night my mom kept Eliza Grace so Shane, Em, Tom and I could go to dinner. After dinner, we went to the casinos Beau Rivage and Hard Rock. I think Shane lost $20...we're definitely not big gamblers!

My brother NEVER smiles in pictures so I thought this one was funny!

Finally the whole family

All in all it was a good vacation but I was glad to be home to these guys!

Lottery Dreams

'I wish' .... I could win the lottery REAL soon, and I would hope to never work again! SERIOUSLY, everyone keeps saying they would have a part time job to keep busy. NOT ME! :) I would love to be able to be a stay at home wife and one day mother. I'm pretty sure I could find things to fill my day...


Working out....

Um, sleeping?

On another note, we just got home from Gulfport yesterday from visting my grandmother and uncle. I hope to have another post up later from the trip!

Happy St. Patricks Day! (I forgot to wear green! Yikes!)
