I know I haven't posted in like FOREVER! But, after a long seven days of being gone without the family I have spent the last few days catching up and visiting with my MIL who is still in town. My trip was way beyond my expectations...and the girls I met we're no mistake - AWESOME christian women!! I learned a whole bunch from them and we are all very excited about when we will meet up again. (maybe Dallas if I move back in time!)
The food at the Lady & Sons restaurant was incredible...my favorites included the cheese and garlic biscuits, fried green tomatoes, the zucchini and squash, mashed potatoes, and of course the ooey gooey butter cake! Oh and the hoe cake, yes, you read that right was great with some real sweet tea. Hence, the T-Shirt I bought says "Our Hoes are Complimentary!" And, yes I did buy it and I did wear it. :-)
Now, I would love to post something special and sweet about each of my new friends I made but decided I'm going to keep the thoughts and memories close to my heart instead. It was a trip I'll never forget...
So unto new news, house hunting in Dallas was successful. Found lots of options if they are still on the market when we sell ours. I got to see my old buddies from Oakmont Estates (my old neighborhood.) We had a wonderful time catching up and visting with their kiddos. I would love to post a picture but goofy me forgot to take one. I think I was still caught up in the moment.
I cried when I left my girls at the airport, I cried when I talked to them from the Paula Deen Tour in GA and I cried when they ran up and hugged me at the airport upon returning. Hubby was a doll and greeted me with my favorite Starbucks drink and planned a special dinner out of course lots of hugs and kisses too!
All in all, it was a great break from the AZ desert heat but was SO glad to see the hubby and my girls!!
Thanks SO much for MIL for watching my little darlings so I could go - she is the BEST!!
