I have always considered myself to be a creative person, and I LOVE to scavage thrift stores, junk stores and Goodwill looking to fulfill that obsession!! It really is an obsession, you know what I'am talking about!! LOL

To Skrimps or not to Skrimps

Yesterday, my sister and I went to the Gulf Shores Shrimp Festival.  We both have lived round these parts for-ev-a, and have never been.  What bad Southern girls we are! It was hot, but, not as hot as it could have been.  I had just been sick as a dog the day before..(Friday), So I wasn't up for any skrimps...so I opted for a yummy fresh made funnel cake.   I still wasn't feeling too good...but, I was determined to go this year..especially since I had missed all of the Texas and Minnesota stuff.  My youngest son went with us, of course he was not the least bit thrilled to be there..especially after hearing some Buffet style music, so, he decided to thank me for it by vomiting on both of our shoes.  I had sandals on.  He had just ate a McDonalds happy meal, and it didnt make us happy at all.  Shortly there after...we left.  But, at least now I can say that I have been to the Gulf Shores Shrimp Festival!!  They had lots of expensive food and craft items...high dollar craft items...like paintings and stuff.  We left only with a bag full of our own shoes covered with vomitus.  Fun Huh????


  1. Oh my goodness, you poor things!! I was just about to say I bet you had a blast until I read the part about your son throwing up on your shoes! I hope he's doing better. My son ate a happy meal from McDonald's a couple of week's ago and was sick as a dog that same night. I wonder sometimes what they put in that stuff.
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog for a visit and for entering the giveaway. I love your blog and I am a follower of yours as well.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Rhonda, I have to say I think my trip went better than yours! :-0 OH MY! I KNOW if my son threw up on my shoes, I'd throw up too...wouldn't that be a sight! I can't stand to hear someone throw up...it makes me sick too. (guess I couldn't be a nurse! lol)
    Glad you liked my little trip...it wasn't as much walking as it looked like. The fort is very compact and is configured in a circle, so it's just going from cabin to cabin. I got to rest before we hit Shaker town, so it wasn't too bad. :)
    I have a terrible cold today, so I think I'm gonna go take some Sudafed and take a nap.
    HUGS to you and have a great week!
    Missy :)
