sunset collection

On my way to the first night of the 30A Songwriters Festival, I had to pull over not once, but three times to snap a few pictures as the sun went down. It was just that good. Over Western Lake Over Camp Creek Lake

Breakfast at Gravel Road

I finally made it to Gravel Road for breakfast – twice. It’s that good. If you haven’t been yet, then believe me when I say you’re missing out. Everything is delicious. So far I’ve tried the 3 eggs plate and the Pigs in a Blanket with Hunter opting for short stacks both times. They open...

Sushimoto

It was Jenny’s birthday Monday at work and we went to Sushimoto in Miramar Beach for lunch to celebrate. This place has only been open a few months and I hadn’t been yet, but I will definitely be going back. We loved our food and the decor is very clean and relaxing. The bar chairs...

Weekend Breakfast of Champions

We went to Another Broken Egg Cafe in Grayton Beach again last week. The breakfast/brunch selection on 30A can sometimes seem limited, especially in the winter and especially when you just want the basics. This place tends to be a frequent stop for me and I don’t think you can go wrong with the classics....

They’ve moved from Uptown Grayton and have taken over the old Yianni’s location here. They’ll be serving breakfast, lunch and dinner! If you’ve never tried it, I can vouch that it is...

Cowgirl Kitchen in Rosemary Beach

I stopped in at Cowgirl Kitchen in Rosemary Beach not too long ago with one of my bros and had a nice little meal. It’s always fun to see the different looks each community has that define them and set them apart. This is what you see when you turn south off 30A and head...

Sushi Night at the Beach Club!

Santa Rosa’s Beach Club Restaurant has added a sushi night to the weekly mix every Thursday and I’ve been a few times now. It’s so good! The menu is somewhat limited but most of the favorites are there and Chuk (who used to roll sushi back in the 331/Blue Bar days) always has a few...

Beachin’ It in Seagrove & Seaside

This weekend was absolutely beautiful! There were only a few afternoon showers and the rest of the days were perfect beach days. This was my view from my chair near Eastern Lake today. Sunshine, clear water and best of all, almost no June grass! I spent a little time at the beach in Seaside yesterday...

Jason Aldean Reps the Red Bar with Bryan Adams

I know not all of you out there are country music fans, so you may have missed the CMT Crossroads that aired recently featuring Jason Aldean. For that matter, you may not have even heard of this newcomer, but I’m sure you’ve sung along to at least a few Bryan Adams songs in your day....

Love the New Barefoot BBQ

Between weekend rains over Memorial Day weekend, I tried to spend as much time enjoying this view….. It was glorious! When we were finally forced away to refuel with food and drink, we decided to try the new Barefoot BBQ in Seaside. It’s right next to the sno-cone place and sits in a fun little...

My New Favorite Shoes

Amidst all of the wedding preparation that’s been going on lately (pics coming soon!), I managed to snag a few new pairs of shoes here and there. I definitely have some new favorites! Can’t you just imagine the possibilities for these babies? Some added sparkle for a relaxing day at the beach or a lazy...

Shower Style

The wedding countdown is on! I can’t believe it’s less than two weeks away — I feel so unprepared! Some of the really fun parts of the time leading up to the big day are going to all the showers. The food is always cute and the drinks are always tasty! (Of course, as the...
