I haven't posted for a while cuz things here have been a bit crazy! First, I spent a week and a half with my best friend at her house in Lexington Ky, where she teaches at Eastern KY U. I don't know why but I didn't take any pics of her lovely townhouse on the golf course, will save that for next time. While she taught for 2 days, I had a lot of fun getting her fall decorations out and up. From there we went to her main home in Statesboro, Ga. for the rest of the week. (She has a 5yr teaching contract in KY then she'll go back to her home in GA). In Statesboro, we worked on getting things ready for her daughter's wedding on November 10th. It's going to be outside on one of the beautiful squares in Savannah at 4 in the afternoon, keep your fingers crossed for beautiful weather! Saturday we spent in Savannah, getting Lauryn ready for and taking her bridal portrait. OMG, talk about gorgeous, she was beautiful in her gown! Here's a little peek, more after the wedding!
I was home from there for 3 days and then my BF, Marsha and her husband, Dennis from CA arrived to visit for a week. How often do your visitors bring their own house to stay in while they're visiting? Well, mine do! They have a really cool trailer that they back in my driveway and they're set with all the comforts of home, well, almost!
They are retired and spend the whole summer traveling and have come by here for the past 2 years. she and I have been best friends since the 7th grade. Needless to say, we have a lot of crazy history! Luckily for me, they love to do the same things I do, junking and eating!! This year one of the stops we made was to the new shop Mike Wolf opened up here in Nashville, if you don't know him, (I can't imagine), he's from the show, American Pickers. It was pretty amazing. Here's a couple of photos, will do a post with more later.
The weekend after they left, I was on my way to Dartmouth College in Hanover New Hampshire to meet up with my sister from CA to visit my niece who is a senior there. We flew into Boston and then drove the 2hrs to Hanover. It was perfect fall weather, sunny, clear and crisp. The leaves were changing and it was absolutely gorgeous, so beautiful it takes your breath away! I changed purses at the last minute and and of all the stupid things, left my camera in the one I didn't take! I don't have any of the photos I took on her camera till she uploads them but here is one of the college and one of downtown from the web. Once I get the photos from her, I'll do a post.
I got back home Tuesday night, just in time to celebrate Kate's 21st birthday on Wednesday.
she, I and her brother, Aaron, went to our favorite mexican restaurant for lunch and I bought her her 1st "legal" drink, of course, it was a margarita. (This is not the norm, I don't encourage my kids to drink, but since this was a special occasion so I indulged her).
(When they know it's your birthday, they make you wear the "hat" while they sing happy birthday and give you dessert)
Here she is with Josh, ending the day at my house with birthday cupcakes
Well, that was my crazy, busy month so far, now I can settle down and get back in the routine of being home. I just got my Halloween mantle done and decorations up, will be showing you that soon!
Till next time.......
