So I've been M.I.A. for a few weeks now so I apologize. I was doing so good for a while... I'll get back on track at some point.

We've had a lot going on in our little world lately... Through all of it I would like to say how awesome my hubby is! The last weekend in June, he took me on an extremely last minute vacay to the Beau Rivage for a little R&R. We left Saturday morning and made it to Ocean Springs for lunch. This was the first time I had ever been to Ocean Springs and I am in love! The downtown area has some great shopping, restaurants, bars, etc. and I told Cliff I wouldn't mind living there. The live oak trees were unbelievable!!

The Bay Collection is one of my new favorite shops! The staff is extremely nice and talkative and they bring their pup to work. Big plus for me!! I really hate that I missed their 50% off anniversary sale last weekend...

After shopping, we met up with our friend Mason at the local favorite pub, Kwitzky's Dugout. The World Cup was in full swing and US was playing. IT WAS INSANE! I was one of 3 girls in the entire place and everybody had a vuvuzela (horn). Talk about annoying after a bit... Next we venture to another bar about 1/2 a block down to catch up with Nathan and Laura. It was so great to see old friends!!

We were having such a great time that we forgot to go check into the hotel! Whoops!! We showed up to the Beau about 7 pm, and we got in line at the check-in desk. Word to the wise - be nice to those ladies/gentleman. There was a guy in front of us that was being extremely rude and she had a scowl on her face when we walked up. Cliff worked his magic and wah lah - we were upgraded to a SUITE!! Of course I was so excited I forgot to take pictures but look at the site to see more. All I can say is that we had 2 FULL bathrooms...

We had a fantastic dinner at Mary Mahoney's that night. We were 2 of the last tables in the restaurant and could have stayed all night! The stuffed snapper is to die for...

We ate so much that we went straight back to our room and went to bed. The next morning we got a late check-out and hit the pool. I want to take a girls overnight trip just for the pool. You can rent the cabanas by the day which is great for the whitest white girl (aka me).

All in all, it was a great last minute getaway! I was so glad for a break from the real world, even if for just a few hours. Can't wait to get away again!!
