Gustav loves Labor Day

Brad, DeeDee, Rick and I headed down to Biloxi Friday about 5pm, to start our wild adventure. Just before Mobile, I noticed in the rear view mirror the car behind me was swerving like crazy, then just started flipping. It was horrible, we all felt sick about it. I witnessed it flip at least 5 times, and even thought and 18 wheeler was going it hit it. Just horrible! We later found out that an 18 yr old girl and a 22 yr old girl, both students were killed in the accident. My thoughts and prayers go out to their friend and family.

Once we all calmed down, were were on our way to Mississip. Once we hit the state line it was a little like I was a tour guide. Most of the crew paid little attention to me, but I just kept talking. I get a little excited when I get on my home turf. We made it to my parents restaurant just in time for dinner, and to meet up with my step sister Summer who was in town from Chicago. I little family reunion, some seafood, dad's gumbo, and a drink, and we headed to the casino.

We check onto the Beau Rivage, and the guys hit the tables. Low key Friday night.

Saturday was our big day. Breakfast @ Bay View Gourmet in Ocean Springs, a trip to Walter Anderson, and a little street festival, then back to the casino. We rented a cabana by the pool so the guys didn't miss a minute of football! The weather was PERFECT!!!! Fruity drinks, football, old friends, lots of sunshine, PERFECT DAY! The we went to The Sports bar @ The Imperial Palace to catch the Auburn and BAMA games & and grab dinner. Some of my girls from high school met us. After the games it was on to Hard Rock for what was the icing on the cake. Got to see Justin,, Gen, Chip, Anna, Nathan, Jeni, so many more, I can't get them all. We had a blast! The guys won back some of the $ they lost the night before. The Beau said everyone had to be out of the hotel by 7am, so we decided to beat the traffic and leave @ 3am. Uh, not sure if that was a good idea or not, it still took us 6.5 hr to get back (usually takes 4-4.5). All in all an awesome 36 hours in Biloxi! GREAT TO SEE EVERYONE! Thanks for nothing GUSTAV!
