Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

June 19...Beach Trip 2009- Orange Beach and Gulf Shores.

Spent the weekend with Ole Miss friends and Father's Day with Steve and Sue. Had FD breakfast on the water at Tacky Jacks! It was an awesome time and wish we didn't have to come back to reality!
A few things we learned:
  • Sunscreen doesn't work on your face...if you forget to put it on
  • Car key's only open bottles 4 out of 5 times without causing hand injuries
  • Don't play Putt Putt in any month that you wouldn't eat raw oysters...too hot!!!
  • The Florabama really can hold one million sweaty people.
  • Pomegranate margaritas sound better than they are (at least how we made them)
  • RedBull really does give you wings...but it also makes you tell stupid jokes to each other on long car rides!
  • hmmm...can we fit a beach house into the budget? Lemme run some numbers...

Brandon & I have been trying to figure out the same thing for a while. We keep thinking, there isn't going to be space for the whole family for holidays in our apartment, so really-it's an investment in family time! :) I don't think y'all have the same excuse though!! Can't wait to see you this weekend!!!
