And while we are asking these second round questions, enjoy a few pictures from our trip to the beach... which by the way, started with a big ol group of boys being taken to a school trip in Jackson, MS, which happened to be on our way to Alabama.
Oh, and another by the way, their sponsors were in the car ahead of us and had a blowout. Guess it was a good thing we were behind them!

Yep... these are a couple of my best buds! I am a blessed chick!

I mean, we have been friends since we cheered together in the 6th grade! We have gone through junior high, high school, college, marriage, kids, and, now grandkids. Wait, NO, mine are just kids! I forgot. Theirs are in high school, so it just seems that way!

It is good to have those friends who are going to be there through thick and thin. Those you could trust with your own babies!

Oh, and wait! The middle girl here is Mary! She also cheered with us in junior high! We hooked up with these chicks in Gulf Shores!

NO lie... this waiter remembered EVERY one of our names when we only casually told him as he took our orders. I was impressed!

I love my girls! They know how to SHOP like me!!

It was a quicky trip, but oh so fun!

We have one of those friendships that has just lasted through the ages. Sometimes fight. Sometimes cry together. Always love each other though!

I wish for everyone this kind of friendship! ANd I wish for some one particualr person... a great JOY necklace tomorrow!! Mo

Congratulations to the winners! Never always seem to have a contest when I have to be offline for several days. My timing stinks.

Your necklaces are beautiful. You are so talented.

Please keep my brother and family in your prayers. He's still in the hospital. We're still shuttling back and forth to and from the city where he lives. He's got a long road ahead of him.
