Shrimp Fest 2014 Run Gulf Shores

This was our 2nd time taking part in the Gulf Shores Shrimp Fest Run because its one of our favorites. I am sure we will be there again next year and the years to come. We live about an hour and half away so we left at about 5:30am so we could arrive on time. Here we are loading up in the car.

Here we are getting ready to line up and pictures from the start of the race.

#164 felt like a lucky number!

All three of us took part in this. Its the perfect event for runners and walkers.

Runners lining up!

That's my Trey getting ready.

They had a drone above us taking pictures and followed us at the start of the race. It was a little different having this fly above us.
The following pictures are from the path of the run. I am not going to comment after everyone but you can just see the amazing view.


Yes, I know my time could have been better if I wasn't so busy taking pictures but this run has such a great view I just had to share. Plus I really take part in this one for the view.
I love the little bridges we run over!

They did a great job with the water stations. They ladies were so nice and they had two separate spots for us to get water. Very pleased!

They also did a great job making sure we knew which direction to go at all turns.

I was so pleased how this run was perfect for runners and walkers. Everyone was so supportive no matter which one you were. Here is my sweet Eddie crossing the finish line!

After the run there were tents set up with lots of food.

We were hot and ready for a rest after our run.


I believe next year I am bringing one of the large beach umbrellas to sit under while we cool down. It really did heat up and there was little shade but still lots of fun.

Interesting fact about me, I lift my big toe when I run. Look how I have a this hole in my shoe. All of my running shoes have this hole in them in the same spot. Strange......

Then we went home showered and went out to dinner after a hard day of running!

Awesome race and I highly recommend it! We cant wait until next year!

Look Into This Weeks Outfit Ideas

 I am so excited for this time of year!!!!
Our company had a group photo for Breast Cancer Awareness month so pink was the outfit for the day.

 This was one of my favorite color combos for the week. I paired my Navy shirt from Ann Taylor Outlet with the Soft Lime Green Shirt also from Ann Taylor. I love these two colors together. The necklace is also from Ann Taylor.

I hate that I don't have the picture to show you but I wore this with white pants. Yes, I am rebelling against Mother Nature with the silly rule of no white after Labor Day. I plan to wear my white this fall and winter and love it!
This is what inspired me to wear my white pants and jeans.

This is a shirt I picked up from Stein Mart and I love all of the details. I wore it in the summer with my white pants and white jeans but its perfect paired with jeans to head out to a Friday night football game. I paired it with a David Yurman necklace.

Here is the link to the necklace. I love the bell style sleeves and it was perfect with the Tory Burch Flats.

I have loved having the opportunity to get up bright and early as the sun is coming up and going out for a run or sometimes a walk. Just to have the chance to clear your head and say a prayer or two!

I love this quote below. Sometimes when you see the actions of others you can only wonder what direction the world is going in. I just feel if we all kept this quote in front of us daily we can make a difference one person at a time. Even if you see that person that wants to be ugly and talk about others just let your light shine and be the best you that you can be! Maybe just maybe your actions will rub off on them and help them be a better person.

Have an awesome weekend!

Fall Days Full of Play and Ann Taylor

I love this time of year and we also love having fun! Today I am mixing in some fun with the challenge I took on of 31 days of Fall Fashion to help inspire others. You are either looking to shop your current closet and come up with ideas or your looking for the great sales that are out there now and hopefully these post help.

We had fun after church since the weather was perfect.

Have fun everyday!



I had the opportunity to wear my new scarf and its a must have that you can find at Target. From what I hear it is sold out online but I would keep stopping by your local Target and keep an eye out.
I usually always wear a stud earing and a statement necklace but today I went with a statement earing. I picked these up from Baublebar.

Jeans- Ann Taylor
Shirt- Gap
Vest- Old Navy
Shoes- Ann Taylor
Scarf- Target
Watch- Michael Kors
Bracelets- Ann Taylor

I love the look of just wearing the vest both zipped and unzipped.

These shoes are great. I picked them up at Ann Taylor and was able to get an additional 60% off. I believe they were $80.00 and I purchased them for $30.00 with my coupons I was able to put on top of the 60% off.

Wonderful weekend because I cleaned my porch and had a great cup of coffee on Sunday morning before leaving for church.

Fall is in the air!

Saturday I wore my recent purchase from Ann Taylor. They have the best pants for work along with several new cardigans.

I love the look of navy and red during the fall. Adds a great splash of color. Hope you are having an awesome start to your Fall!
