Gulf Shores Day 1-2

Hi friends! We are back from our trip to Gulf Shores! It was a super fun 8 days and I can't wait to share all the pictures with you! I'm just going to share a couple of days at a time, otherwise you would be in major picture overload!! :)

Saturday we left early and headed to Alabama! Kevin and Summer rode with us and we took John's jeep. We were worried about fitting everything especially because the guys were bringing their golf clubs, but we made it work! (Even though we did have to put a lot of stuff in Emily's car!) I wore my new fishing shirt for the ride too! About half way in to the ride, a big rock hit John's windshield and cracked it. His car isn't even a month old :(





We made it to our condo about 7, unpacked, went to dinner at Shrimp Basket then went to the grocery store for our necessities for the week.

Sunday was our first day at the beach and luckily we had beautiful weather!

After our day at the beach, we went back up the condo and got ready for dinner at Lamberts! This place is so much fun and the food is SO good! You get plenty of food and because we were there close to closing time, they gave us A BUNCH of food to take home with us - like 4 chicken pot pies, fried chicken, etc etc etc! And did I mention, if you want a roll, you have to catch it?? You have to wait quite awhile, but it's worth it and a must do in Gulf Shores!





















After dinner, we stopped at Krispy Kreme and got donuts for the next days breakfast! We don't have these in Houston and they are delicious so of course we had to have them :) And me and John were the goobers who wore the famous hat ;)



So much fun already and that's only the first 2 days! More coming soon :)

We went to a Lamberts on our way to Missouri a few years ago and it was delicious! I was a little worried about having to catch my roll though, I'm not the most coordinated...haha And I'm so sorry y'all don't have a Krispy Kreme!!! That's tragic!!!! They're best when the hot sign is on. We've literally made a thousand last minute stops if we drive by and the hot sign is on. Looks like y'all had a great vacay!

I've been following for a while but this may be my first comment....
My family has gone to Gulf Shores every summer for my entire life (30 years!!!) and I seriously love everything about that place! The Shrimp Basket is my fave for cheap, quick seafood and Lambert's is always a must for us! So glad you had a great trip! Your pictures make me even more anxious for my week at the beach in September! :)

So fun! I'm in LOVE with your monogrammed shirt! Did you just buy the shirt and take it to get it monogrammed? I need a matching shirt. :)
