A is for Amber and Alabama

I'm a little behind in the whole A to Z blogging thing, but I thought it sounded like a pretty fun idea, so please excuse me for doing two today to "catch up" with the rest of you!  I love the idea of having something to say every day and of maybe getting a few new followers, too!  So, if you are popping in from the Challenge, Hi and welcome!  Now let's get started!

A is for Alabama!  I love the ocean.  There's no place else in the world where I am as calm and relaxed (well, with the exception of my visit to the Ritz Carlton Spa in Puerto Rico, but I digress).  If you know me in real life, you know that I can be a bit much--too loud, too bossy, overexcitable--but at the ocean, I'm all those things and I get to go take lots of pictures!  Ha! 
 The feeling of sand between my toes and ocean lapping around my feet makes me so happy!
 And the birds!  I love photographing animals, and in the early mornings and early evenings, you can pretty much just take your pick.  And for the most part, the birds don't seem to mind.
 I can't wait until my next sunrise!

A is also for Amber, one of my besties who I will be featuring as we go along here.  Amber is the Penny to my Tracy, the Lucy to my Ethel, the Jen to my Stacey.  We're different, but like-minded, which I think is what makes a friendship interesting.  For instance, I will gladly sing you every song in the Broadway show book, and Amber isn't interested unless it's from Hairspray, Xanadu, Little Shop of Horrors or Dreamgirls.  (Just typing that made me die a little inside.)  We love to shop and eat and mock the world with great hilarity, which if you are a woman, you know is the best kind of friend you can ask for. 
 Since 2008, we have been taking our show on the road for a week each year.  We've been to Charleston, SC, St. Louis, MO, and of course, Gulf Shores, Alabama!   As long as everyone stays properly fed and hydrated, we typically have a really good time. 
 We even make new friends!  I can't wait to share about this year's adventures!  I'm sure we are going to have a blast! 
"Wait, Amber, B is for buffalo..."


  1. I soooo wish I could come on vacation with you guys!! I would love to get out of this state and go somewhere warm! Plus, I need an excuse to wear my maternity swimsuit that I bought!

  2. Wish you could too! But think of all the fun we are going to have in May!!
