Also, news flash 2 probable cases in Madison, AL! All Madison and Huntsville city schools are closed until Monday. The rejoicing that Daniel and his friends just did was PRICELESS!
Great way to use your fruit before it gets over ripe!

After a happy hour stop with Allison I headed on to AU.
What a treat for me to see Amy again and Allie all in one weekend!
I spent the weekend with my favorite Texas couple, Allie and Eric! Thanks for letting me crash the weekend with you guys again and hang out with your friends.
If you are a history buff looking for a good movie check out Frost Nixon. It was really interesting and the actor who played Nixon did a great job!

At least Marilynn can help a sister out! Hopefully St. Louis will be able to provide me some friends in need of supporting!

Other than a show, the only thing I wanted to do was go to Serendipity 3! We did! We had 3 desserts for the 4 of us to share and they were AMAZING!
Sunday, I went to Redeemer and actually ran in to Amy! Thanks Jess for telling her I was coming. Great girls weekend! I couldn't have asked for more!

Tours: State Department, White House, Holocaust Museum.
Emily and Katherine did the State Department while Laura gave me a tour of the Potomac and part of Georgetown. (She got lost!)
Highlight of the White House tour was seeing 2 Secret Service men head out the front door of the WH in full sniper gear. They had their rifles over their shoulder and all their flashlights, radios and everything else. If only I could have taken a picture!
We made a pitstop at the Native American Museum. I had never been there but on our first floor whirlwind tour it was pretty cool. And if you are in the neighborhood and looking for some good food that would be the place to stop.
Most of us had not been to the Holocaust museum before so we went today. You could spend most of your day there if you wanted to do so. We were there several hours looking around. I like that you can choose how graphic of a visit you want. Thanks Museum People for making it a more enjoyable experience.
After snack time on the mall we headed home. For a great dinner in the neighborhood.
The evening will conclude with fresh brownies and some 2buckChuck!

A whole great weekend ahead!

I understand we are in tough economic times and everyone needs their money to come in from someplace. But seriously! is it necessary to charge $15.00 for a checked bag?!
How ridiculous! Southwest is kind enough to not charge and then give free drinks (adult beverages even on the holidays!).
I really think the airlines should reconsider the luggage charge.
Tomorrow is the big day. Emily, Katherine, and I leave for DC! We are all so excited about our girls weekend in DC and the Big Apple! Can't wait to explore.

Praise the Lord for the money he is providing. The scholarship is only good for the first year but still it will cover partial tuition for fall/spring/jan-term!
Thanks for the prayers!
Hope you had a Happy Easter!

Today is JD's 19th Birthday, this picture is from 2006. How much he has grown up since then! Tonight instead of celebrating with the family he is going to "Junior-Senior" Madison Academy's version of prom.
I hope you have a great birthday JD! You are a fabulous little brother.

(That's the "Batman" building in Nashville FYI)
Super excited about dinner tonight with Cheryl Doss Gangyl and her husband and daughter. I haven't seen her in years! Talk about a blast from the past!
GOOD LUCK LAURA! Say a little prayer for her today! She is taking part of the CPA exam.
Happy Friday everyone! I know I'm thrilled its the weekend. Just counting down the hours until I'm off!

Mom had one of her best friends from childhood come to visit this yesterday. They drove around Huntsville and ate at Lil’ Rosie’s. I hope that I can do that with my friends. I look forward to visits from all of you one day after we all have kids who are grown and can reminisce about growing up together!
It's about that time...Despite what Dan Satterfield says we may be planting in the garden this weekend! Is there really going to be a cold snap in the next week? I'm excited about being able to plant a bunch of vegetables. One of my goals this summer is to learn how to can.
At Christmas I got a cookbook on canning. Laura, I may be making a trip to your house to learn from your mom because my mother has NO idea! So hopefully I will have some tasty pickles for us to eat later.
