My Bestest girl friend, Rachel and I planned a trip last month with our moms to Orange Beach, AL. We needed the break and knew for sure that our wonderful moms did too (both are otherwise known as Nana to their grandchildren)! We stayed at a beautiful condo and made some great memories on our special weekend together. Our condo, the Phoenix West, was right next to the Big Blue House in Orange Beach if you are familiar with the area. I have posted just a few picutres from our journey. We ate at some great places whether they be local favorites (Doc's) or newer finds like Cosmos (love that place). We found some adorable shops at the Wharf and watched Evan Lysacek win the Olympic gold and tortured ourselved through the strangest movie (Elizabethtown). If that's your favorite movie, I'm sorry if I offend but then again you might need therapy if that's your favorite movie because it's weird!! Heehee... We even stopped at the Casino on the way home for a potty break. Fun place to stop just for fun. No gambling occurred so rest easy there everyone. I don't know if we'll make this trip an annual event but I certainly cherish the time we spent together. Maybe it can be a bi-annual trip. We'll see.
Anyway, enjoy the pictures......

Well if you are my Gracie then its a great excuse to get to wear pink glasses made just for her.
do not feel sorry for her because she thinks she's just the hottest stuff in those PINK GLASSES and I think so too!! I think it makes her feel like an individual and I can understand that can't you? One small sad thing for me is that everyone now will know which twin is which. I know that sounds crazy but it's just been a part of our lives for the last 5 years so it's kind of a melancholy feeling. Maybe it's because they are growing up and I'm just having to admit that more than I like. I better start preparing for those teenage years because they'll be here WAYYYYY sooner that Alex & I will be prepared for them!!
OH yeah - like her shirt?? - funny huh?

Next, LollyPup seems to have stopped by to do some sit-ups with Gracie on the floor or possibly she's just staring at the ceiling fan. Not real sure.
Seems she might have been frightened by something and jumped onto the top of the sofa for safety. Maybe she was hiding from that big spotted monster that lives in our house who's been known to tear up a stuffed animal in her day. And again the video camera, plus a Bible and a pink Solo cup with the remnants of some Coke in it. Isn't that what everyone has on their end tables?

Here's my baby girl looking all too teenager-ish but very posh and chic and ready for the cat walk!
And of coarse our local Fashion Police herself, Ms. Maggie, was also very much made into a high fashion diva for the evening!

Our house in the snow. It never quite covered the ground so the girls weren't too interested in making a snow man this time.
My pretty Valentine tulips from my Alex. Tulips are my all time favorite. Forget the roses and get me some tulips any time.
