Friday happened to be my mom's birthday so we got to celebrate that and Saturday we had a little bachelorette bash for my cousin.
I love the beach and all that it entails. Seafood? Yes please! Florabama? How I've missed thee! Waves upon my feet? Why, I think I'm in heaven!!
We went a different route this beach trip. We normally rent a condo right on the beach but since there were nine of us going we felt like a house would be a better option. My cousin, Lane, mentioned staying in one of the cottages at the Alabama Gulf State Park. It was a much better deal price wise and would house everyone comfortably.
I was a little unsure what type of living conditions we would have for the weekend, but I was going for it.
You see, when I think state park I think rustic wood cabin and communal bathrooms. Let me tell you how wrong I was!!
We stayed in the Gulf Shores State Park Lakeside Cottages and they were so. stinkin. cute!! I loved it!!!
Check out our little weekend abode:
|Three bedrooms and three baths.|
|Coffee was consumed one of the two screened in porches.|
|We didn't see any aligators but mom did check for any signs of them.|
Friday night we had dinner at DOC's Seafood and hit up the infamous FLORABAMA. Bushwackers were downed and dancing was done!
|He was a cutey.|
It was so HOT. I'm talking So. Freaking. HoT. But we just got in and out of the ocean to stay cool.
Saturday night we hosted a little bachelorette party for my cousin, Anna. She had a great time.
To wrap up the weekend we hit up Live Bait for karaoke and made one last pit stop at Florabama.
Overall the weekend was so much fun. I loved being at the beach with family and friends for a girls' weekend. Sometimes we all just need a little time away!!
