The Weekend

We had such a great weekend! Christy and Jessica arrived Thursday afternoon for the weekend. It was so good to have them here--we always have so much fun and laugh and laugh and laugh!

On Friday, we went to Gigi's Cup Cakes. Oh so good! They have a 2 page menu of all the different kinds from Wedding Cake to Nutty Butty--the icing is about about 3 inches thick! We picked up a few....well 8!

Mike was so happy when I showed up with a chocolate one for him!

On Saturday we headed to Opry Mills, a big mall that has some outlets in it. Jessica wanted to do some shopping and I was on the lookout for some good bargains for baby clothes. Jessica thought she looked silly in this hat, but she has so much style, I think she can pull off almost anything!

Meanwhile, 1985 called and they said they want their sunglasses back. Christy and I couldn't believe how much all of the clothes resemble what we wore growing up. I knew I should have kept those leg warmers and the sweater with the rainbow hearts going across the front! We made sure Jessica didn't see us taking this picture, otherwise she would have been mortified!

For a mid afternoon snack as were walking through the mall, we stopped at the Apple Barn Store and Restaurant and had ourselves some warm apple fritters with fresh apple butter. Oh so good!

Here's Jessica with our the kitten. We decided to name her Georgia. Mike and I have both liked the name. There is absolutely no significance to the name, other than we both like it. I think she is going to stick around. The left over tuna I gave her today after my lunch might have sealed the deal.

On Saturday we went did a little more shopping and I was able to find a few things for the baby. Then that night we headed to Mike's school where he teaches. Every fall they put on their fall musical. This year it was The Sound of Music which happens to be one of our favorites. The students did such a great job!

Jessica had school today so they had to get back to Ohio. I was sad to see them go, but am already looking forward to Christmas when we will be together again!

So cute! Y'all all look so much's amazing!!

I'll tell ya what else is icing on those cupcakes! Goodness gracious! I have to have one of those! Like...right now... And that totally looks like something my husband would do (the chocolate teeth pic). In fact, I have numerous ones of him just like that...

Do they still have the Strasburg in Opry Mills. I used to shop there all the time. I haven't been in a couple years. Opry Mills is where Mike & I went on our second date.

Glad y'all had a fun girls' weekend!! (Just think...soon there will be another girl to add to the mix! haha!)
