Gilligan's Island Internet Connection!

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! I had planned to actually blog from here at Dauphin Island - maybe I mean Gilligan's Island though! The internet connection is awful - to use my laptop, I have to get in the car and go to a "hot spot" (code: seafood market) to get online. Ugh.

I'll be back to civilization soon and have lots of fun things planned. Until then, have a great Memorial Day holiday and don't forget why we celebrate the day. It's not just about the beach, boat and barbequing! Thank a veteran this weekend!

p.s. Need your suggestions - how do I handle shopping next week while the DH is on vacation!?!?!? Ugh - so much "together time". Code: how do I pull the UPS boxes inside without him seeing them? Help!



  1. Thanks for posting a reminder about memorial day, sometimes its easy to get lost in the fun and festivities and forget what its all about. I completely understand your pain on the computer situation too; in fact, my laptop just died a few days ago so i am commenting now from my iphone! And a suggestion for taming shopping while the hubs is gone? Make a folder on your browser called "things i want to buy" and everytime you find something you want, just stick it in that folder. Make a budget on how much you want to spend. Wait til the end of the week and pick your three favorite things from your folder, and stay within your budget!

    I hope this super long comment helps! Have a fun and safe rest of your weekend!

  2. Have fun!!! I totally understand. Our family beach home is the same way.

  3. Have fun! In regards to hiding online shopping deliveries from your husband - figure out when your UPS guy usually comes and send your husband out to the store pick up random things at that time! :)

  4. Girl, I get caught all the time, so I'm no help! My husband has given up after 25 years of living with my shopaholic self! Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

  5. You don't have to go the seafood market on Dauphin Island for a "hot spot"--go to mack'n'dd'sEMPORIUM--a shopahlic's delight! It is a gift shop and art gallery and you can sit in comfort on their shaded back deck and blog away using the free high speed internet they provide! The gift shop-gallery is a great place for to shop too if you are so inclined!So- you can go to the the Emporium and Kill 2 birds with one stone----er-- trip!

  6. You can actually call UPS and ask them to hold your packages at the station... then they can either be re-delivered when the coast is clear, or you can just go there and pick them up and store them safely in the trunk until D is out of the way. :)

    As far as the actual SHOPPING part goes, if he catches you online, tell him it's blog research! LOL
