miscellany monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

I thought I'd share with you some random things I learned on vacation:

Jamison talks a lot.

Caleb think he's king and we now know we need to bring him down a notch.

Mommy and Rondell are SO much alike (this is not new news) and I realized just how special it is for them to have that kind of relationship.

I love Tanysha more and more as we get older realizing how deep our friendship goes.  We are truly sisters and not in the fighting kind of way, but in the I-can-finish-your-sentences/I'm-thinking-what-you're-saying kind of way.

Sticky buns are a great thing to make on vacation.  We had to buy a bundt pan while we were there to make it and we left it in the condo with the recipe for the next person :)

Priceline is awesome...our hotel was great with a great price attached.  If you're ever in Brentwood, TN I'd highly recommend the Marriott Residence Inn...great staff, lovely rooms and free breakfast.

Brentwood, TN is full of nice people...well at least the staff of hotel.  I mean they were super nice...I must write a thank you.

I love the feel of sand between my toes.

The Crab Trap has an amazing view of the beach...and the service was wonderful.

There's more to Destin than the beach and the pool...Rondell opened our eyes.  Next time we have a few new places we'll have to check out.

Brownie bits and frozen custard go well together.

I really need to pack lighter next time.

Bringing home clean clothes because the condo has a washer/dryer is awesome

We really need to start saving for a king size bed...all of that space was just lovely.

The seafood dinner that my mom makes is still my favorite meal while we're there.

Bring more toilet paper next time.

Taking a lot of pictures is great (editing them all...takes a bit of time...I hope to have the picture post up by Wednesday).

It's so fun to read your random vacay thoughts. :o)

You and your family were SO sweet to leave the bunt pan and the recipe. I know *I* would LOVE to have a surprise like that awaiting me. :o)

And the king size bed? I HIGHLY recommend it. :happy sigh: Life has never been better since we got the new bed. ;o)

I can't believe you guys don't have a king size bed! You MUST get one! That is so incredibly sweet and pay-it-forward-ish to leave the recipe for the next guests. I can't wait to see your pix and am so glad you had another great year there!
