#Snapbacks and Whiskey Riff

whiskeyriff
Love a snapback. If you love and follow country music and country music accounts, you are bound to have come across a Whiskey Riff article. The creators of the site, Wes and Steve, are very active in writing articles and posting across their social channels. Their articles provide laughs, information and fun about country music and country life. They’ve started a country lifestyle brand and continue to make it better. Follow them for relevant articles, join the lifestyle with their merchandise and let’s face it, they are just plain fun. They are the type of guys that you try to track down in Nashville during CMA Fest because you want to have a drink with them………I’m not saying I did it, okay, maybe I tried. They are just that fun to follow.

Why you must eat at The Gulf in Gulf Shores, Alabama

The Gulf - Orange Beach
The first thing you’ll notice about The Gulf restaurant is the building. It is constructed out of old shipping containers in matching bright blue. It creates a unique atmosphere from the outside but once you walk through one of the openings to the back, you’ll fall in love and never want to leave. There is something catching your eye in every direction, whether it’s the fire pit down in the sand, the eclectic outdoor furniture, the locks on a fence hidden in the corner, quotes on the wall and pillows and then the gift shop, there is always something to see. Each visit I discover a new hidden gem – as they move furniture often, change out tables and chairs, and are always adding something to make your visit more pleasurable. The gift shop is my favorite place to shop for unique gifts – I always walk out with a t-shirt, magnet, candle or cup. Watch out for the resident cat – I’m kidding, she’s so friendly and sometimes just sleeping next to the register. It is super pet friendly and I love seeing that at outdoor restaurants.

A Toadlickin’ Good Time

IMG_5180.JPG
Toadlick Music Festival. Now a southern staple of the music scene located in Dothan, Alabama. It is South Alabama’s largest music festival and this year it celebrated its 5th year. In previous years, Toadlick was held in April and after fighting with rough weather every year, the organizers decided to move the festival to June. So why the name Toadlick? The festival was already in creation before a name was formed. We’ve heard over the years that it all happened around a campfire one night. Toadlick Festival President, Chris Gilbert confirmed that they wanted a catchy name and his little cousin said Toadlick – it caught his attention and it stuck.

My Christmas Wish List

OH_HELLO_FRIEND_209
There comes a time at a certain age when there aren’t a whole lot of things that you’re waiting to ask for as a Christmas present. Sometimes I’ll keep items on my radar that I wouldn’t normally buy and then around Christmas time, I’ll splurge because I’ve been thinking about it so long and still want it that I don’t count is as in impulse buy. I’ve pulled some items that I want and then some that I love and think would make perfect gifts. Some of them I’ve already purchased and they are under my tree, the hubs just doesn’t know yet. And some I just think would be great gifts, too! Maybe you’ll get some ideas for yourself, your friends or the lady in your life.
