My Trip to Mobile

As promised, here are a few shots from my conference in Mobile! 
I was bummed that we never got a chance to go to the beach, but my coworker and I didn't let that stop us from having fun.

Look at these cool trees! We don't have these in Nashville!

We were on the 21st floor. 

 Look! We found some southern belles! I saw them and had to take a picture.

  Cruise, anyone?


 My coworker and I went on a sightseeing tour and really enjoyed the historic buildings


 I had gumbo for the first time and it was amazing! Who knew?

ALSO, did you know that they celebrate Mardi Gras in Mobile, AL? 
I loved this little candy store called Three Georges. It had delicious candy!

I learned a lot and had a good time getting to know my coworker by sharing meals, going shopping and sharing our stories. Can't wait for my next trip!

Mobile is where Mardi Gras ORIGINATED! New Orleans isn't the "original" Mardi Gras!
I love Mobile - it's just so rich in Southern goodness!!

We have Wintzell's in Tuscaloosa...so good! Also, the "southern belles" are called trail maids. Several of my friends from Mobile were part of the trail in high school. I don't know if they told you anything about it!
