Maghan's Baby Shower.. Slumber Party Style !!

Not another Baby Shower Sunday afternoon Tea.. Yes those are wonderful, but I was thinking something a little different.
Good Ole Fashion Slumber Party..
Save the little sandwiches and pettifors for Sunday Afternoon.. We had Pizza, Chips, and Snacks.. And you know there was cookie dough there.. With a little wine and Summer Sangria mixed in (ok so it was a grown up slumber party)
PJ's were a must and there was a wonderful mix of music playing in the background that made you want to grab a spoon jump on the couch and sing LOUD...
Thank goodness Maghan is having a girl.... I just LOVE making it look like someone threw up pepto bismal in my house.. PINK EVERYWHERE.... LOVE IT !!!

After Maghan opened her gifts we played a few baby games, then on to "Catch Phrase"..

After Catch Phrase we just sat around and talked for hours. It was such a fun night with a bunch of great girl time..
Some time in the wee hours of the morning Whitney started teaching Maghan some yoga moves!! HAHAHAHA crazy !!

What a Great Night... Maghan got some great stuff and everyone had a good time. Now we are ready for Addison to come out and play !!

Port St Joe.. Day 2

Day 2 we were back on the water. The first place we went was this one shore where we found HUGE Sea Shells. I felt like a kid stuffing my baggie full with them. We ran into a some bad weather, it felt like we were on The Deadliest Catch. Ok maybe that is a stretch !! We waited the bad weather out at the marina.. thank goodness it blew over quickly and it was back to scalloping.
This is the shirt Mac got Daddy for Father's Day. Beer:30... Love it !!!

Michael and Mac.. I love this picture.. Two of my all time favorite boys !! I love them both VERY MUCH !!

On our way home Sunday all we could talk about was how much fun we had.. The trip went by way too fast.. Next year we will have to go down a day earlier !! Spending all day on the boat in the water.. Then spending all night eating and hanging out by the pool. Now that is my type of vacation !!! I am already looking forward to next year !! What a BLAST...

Port St. Joe.. Day 1

During the summer Michael and I went down to Port St Joe, Florida, which is outside of Panama City.
Every summer a bunch of our family friends and their kids go. Mother has always invited us, but this is the first year it has worked out for us to go. We headed down on Thursday night and got there mighty late. We woke up the next day and got ready to go out on the boat. Everybody loaded up and headed to the marina.
Port St Joe is known for their scalloping and this was a great year for it.

We would spend the day snorkeling and looking for scallops. Then we would go to this one real shallow area and all the guys would suck them !!
Michael about to get ready to catch some scallops !!

Mrs. Merri and Momma
Early evening we would head back to where we were staying. We would get in the pool and then some of the guys played a good ole game of parking lot baseball !!
Mrs. Darlene was playing bartender and made us all Pineapple Martinis !! They were so good and refreshing .. We started calling her the "Dar-tender" !!
Momma, Mac, and I
The Ladies made a side dish or dessert while the men were frying and grilling the meat and ALL of our scallops..We would set out tables by the pool and eat out there. We all ended up staying out there for hours at night just talking and laughing !!
Total there was around 50 of us there and here we all are about to pray over our meal.
I know I know.. With this tan line.. WHAT IN THE WORLD was I thinking wearing this dress ????
Mac and I

It was such a fun day and we could not wait to do it all over again the next day !!
