This is the view from the Enchanting Evening, the cabin we stayed at following the wedding. I would really love to go back and spend some time there!

An Enchanting Evening

This is the Redmont Hotel, the oldest hotel in Birmingham, Alambama. We stayed in the honeymoon sweet on the top floor. Our suite took up a fourth of the top floor ^_^ The Redmont opened in 1925.

The next day we set off in the direction of Mobile. We ate dinner at Felix's Fish Camp (one of my favorite restaurants) and stayed in a hotel that overlooked the USS Alabama.

Huge battleship!

We continued our drive into Florida and checked out some forts along the way.

Here we are at the ruins of Fort Pickens...one of my favorite stops.

Now we are in our resort in Myrtle beach. We were hoping to go to the beach this evening, but a storm chased us indoors. Hopefully tomorrow we can be beach bums. ^_^

We found some puppies abandoned on the side of the road in south Arkansas. They are so cute and their momma is soo sweet!

So we took them home to find homes! I couldn't afford to vaccinate them all, but I at least wanted to deworm them so I scheduled an appointment with Dr. LaVergne at Westrock Animal Hospital. Much to my surprise, he told the vet assistants to draw up vaccines for all 4 of the dogs! He then sent my kennel to be washed. We started vaccinating puppies, and sent them back to get bathed. He radiographed Tripod's poor little gimpy foot (fractured femur) and treated the worms in all 4 dogs. All are heartworm free! YAY! It was very kind of Dr. LaVergne and Westrock to treat all of the puppies for me! It's my "wedding present" from Dr. LaVergne. He even sent me home with a month of heartguard and Frontline for each of the puppies, a little bag of dog food (for each puppy), and meds for their worms! Hopefully I can find them all loving homes now!

Here is Fuzzy Wuzzy (before the bath) - a cute little girl. She found a home with a high school friend today. Yay!

This is Houdini, the only male in the group - one of the vet's family members might take this puppy, but he's still with me so far.

This is Tripod with the broken femur. She is a very sweet little girl that looks just like her momma. She went home with a vet tech today, and hopefully has found a new home (if the grandmother approves).

On the way home from Westrock I stopped to pay for my wedding cake and met a friend from high school there. She said she would check to see if she could have a puppy. Sure enough, she and her mother came and picked up little Fuzzy Wuzzy this evening.

So Momma dog ("RCW") for sure still needs a home, and Houdini *might* need one!

Rite of Passage: Bachelorette Party

First stop - the Mud Room...a paint your own pottery shop. I can't wait to see what they turn out like! Beth is going to pick it up for us.

Here's a picture of the entire group!

Next we headed to Sake for some sushi and present time!

This is me opening the most mild of presents....

Then we watched the sun set at the winery, and headed to Melissa's to end the night. Unfortunately...stress, unhealthy amounts of coffee, e. coli cookies, and lack of sleep mixed with sushi and a mixed drink didn't turn out so well for my stomach. But it was a fun night just the same!

Thanks girls!! I'm lucky to have friends like you ladies!
