OK Bike Shop

While in Mobile, Trey and I went to OK Bike Shop to eat lunch. We have eaten there before and it was good. But this time it was even better.

I ordered a Fresh Lime Margarita and Trey ordered his usual Bloody Mary.

We ordered the fresh made Guacamole and Chips for an appetizer. The chips are good and the Guacamole had a great taste I just wished the avocados had been chopped up a little more. It was hard to dip the chips in it.

Trey ordered the Tuna Ceviche. He liked it a lot.

I ordered the Chicken Enchilada with the sauce on the side. It was amazing! But what wouldn’t be delicious covered in cheese?!

If you are ever in downtown Mobile I would recommend checking this place out. Whether for just a drink or an entire meal.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree


I painted this after seeing one like it on Etsy. It is only $25 but I already had all of the supplies so I just painted it myself. It may not look as good as the one on Etsy but it will do and I had fun making it.

I love decorating for Christmas! Christmas is my favorite holiday!

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. – Luke 2:14

  • When do you put up your Christmas decorations?
I usually try to wait till after Thanksgiving but since I was going to Mobile this year I finished decorating before I left for Thanksgiving so when I got home it would all be done.

Decorating Part 3

My furniture came in last Tuesday! I did not know my table and chairs would have to be put together. They definitely should have warned me about this!


My cousin was in town from Atlanta and was very nice and helped me put it together.


The fourth chair was missing a part so I had to take it back and get a new one but all the chairs are around the table now.


I am not finished with the table decorations. This is only what I have done so far. I still want place mats or a runner. The table is huge and needs something else I feel like.


I found this beauty at TJ Maxx. I fell in love immediately.



Here they are! I love them!


I bought the pillows from TJ Maxx. They are silver.
