We headed to the Gulf coast last Thursday with some of our friends to spend a couple of days in Biloxi before we headed to Ashley and Chris's wedding in Mobile. We stayed at the Beau Rivage and gambled until the wee hours in the morning -- the boys played blackjack, and I got a teeny bit addicted to this game (I've never had so much fun!). I was up $40 at one point, but of course I pressed my luck and after a couple of hours, it was gone. (wah) At least James came out on top (but just barely). We spent our days by the beautiful pool and at night we sought out the best seafood in the area -- here and here. It was so nice to have some time to relax, hang out with some of the people we love most and pretend like we don't have a care in the world. Vacations with friends are the absolute best.
