Today we moved my Granny from one Assisted Living Facility to another. This is her third move in just over four years. She spent 45 years in the same house but, jumps from one assisted living to the next. The reason she keeps leaving...1. The food goes down hill. 2. She follows her friends. It cracks me up one leaves and they all follow. While she was holding court in the gorgeous lobby, we were unpacking EVERYTHING she has ever owned. Including 8 boxes of band aids, rollers (electric and Velcro, did I mention she wears a wig?), a Jagermeister t-shirt and hat, the mini wedding album and video to my brothers very short marriage (he has been divorced for 12 years), volumes of People magazines, Christmas cards from years past, and prescriptions dating back to 1994. How some of these things have made all three moves is beyond me. We finished off the day with dinner in the restaurant at 3:00 in the afternoon. She was preening surrounded by my girls in her new home. So it was worth all the clutter. Plus, my cousin and I were laughed all day!

Our night at "the table"...which is actually placed smack in the center of the market. It was seven courses of heaven, delicious wine and good friends. A halfway decent picture of MBM and me...there aren't many of those around! Not too much else to report. Girls are good, MBM is good, work is good. I am looking forward to sharing some before and after pics of projects I have been working on at work...lots of fun stuff!

...of running into another blogger on a random morning at a random Starbucks? You can catch a recap here! I was so glad she introduced herself to me...let me tell you up close and personal, Biscuits is BEAUTIFUL...gorgeous skin, impeccable make up and hair and she is soooo tall. Of course, anyone over 5'3" I think is statuesque. Wish we had a chance to sit and chat a bit longer...next time you are passing through our little town let me know!

Yesterday, I went to my cousin's bridal shower. It was a miserable day here...rained...poured...ALL DAY LONG. The festivities were supposed to be held out side at her aunt's home and of course the weather didn't cooperate, so everything was moved inside. I don't know how many people were there but it seemed like a million or so. That's neither here or there.... Anyway, the shower was a surprise. Why do people insist on having surprise showers? The bride and her fiance are renovating their house. Basically, spending every spare second trying to have it ready by there wedding next month. I don't know what the plan was to get her to the shower was but, she decided it was too miserable out and she was going to work on her house. Finally, her fiance told her about the shower. She comes over and is a mess...A MESS! Wearing huge sweats and a tee covered in paint and dirt, her hair was piled on top of her head in a Medusa like fashion, make up from the night before smudged on her face. She was mortified. Then she had to greet all her guest and open presents looking like a fool. How embarrassing for her? I don't mean to be harsh...but, why do people think bridal/baby showers need to be surprises? You know you are going to have one. What are your thoughts...to surprise or not?
