A perfect weekend

This has been a wonderful, long weekend! Friday was my sweet Mama's birthday. I took off work for a day of fun with her, Mama Hen, Abbie and James. It was such a great day. The weather was absolutely perfect!

First, was a stop at the Galleria where we watched Abbie try on dresses and pick out a really cute one for Easter. Next, we had lunch at the Olive Garden (where I ate way too much) and she opened her presents.


Then we headed to Old Time Pottery in Pelham which is a huge store of home goods where we could walk around forever. And finally, we hit the Thrift Store in Alabaster, found some bargains and headed home.

All of our men have been gone since Wednesday to South Carolina. They got home around 5:30 Friday and I can't tell you how happy I was to see Jay-Baby! We've had such a good weekend. More great weather yesterday. Now today has been super rainy but I love that too.

If next week is as great as this weekend - I'm gonna be one happy gal!

Jill, you need to quit C and start making blog designs. Don't tell Daddy I said that though.

I've been to an Old Time Pottery once and loved it! I found a few really cool outdoor decorations there.

Happy Birthday to your mom!!! Sounds like you girls had a great time!

OK so you were like less than 1 mile away from my house when you went to the Thrift Store :( Wish I would have know I would have come to see the Wright's. Glad you had a good weekend and a fun mama day

Jill, Thank you so much for your comments regarding my dad. He's at St. Vincents (not sure which one - aren't there 2?). Anyway, the surgery was successful, but I'm still waiting on the doctors to report to the family so I can get my update. I love your new blog header. Very 'big city'! My sis lives in Pelham, so I'll try to check out that pottery place when I'm in town next week. Keep praying and thanks for the encouragment!

Hey Everyone,

I've been looking to figure out a good place to begin the Acai free trial and was wondering if anybody had some opinions on whether or not the stuff works to lose weight? So far here's the only [url=http://acaiberries.zoomblog.com/]article[/url] I have been able to check out that seemed real for what my goals are. Opinions?

Hi Everybody!

Here's the most informative website I have discovered so far regarding weight loss and dieting info. The story at [url=http://suesdiary.info]Sues Diary[/url] is inspirational at the least.

I've used that stuff at [url=http://suesdiary.info]Sues Diary[/url] myself. I tried the colon cleanse and had great results.
