It is FRIDAY (I hear the angels singing..)... the sun is SHINING... and I am SO very excited about my upcoming weekend! =)
I have spent every single night this week cleaning my house like a mad woman because I have some very important company coming to see me! Tammy, Bridgett, Landin, and Carl (Bridgett's boyfriend) are all coming to see me tonight. This will be their first time on "my turf" so of course I had to clean my house so its spotless. You know what I mean, you do it too when someone comes to your house for the first time..
Or maybe I'm REALLY OCD... either way- I'm happy!
In the middle of all my cleaning last night, I had another "project" going... Amish Friendship Bread! It had been forever since I made any, so I took a starter from one of my sweet customers and had me a yummy late night snack last night! =)
So, the agenda for this weekend is that tonight (Friday) we are going to watch a movie. Not just ANY movie either- WILLY WONKA!!!!
This is the first time to try something like this in Corinth, so I hope everything goes well. It is an outdoor movie, and it is going to be so much fun!! Landin should LOVE it! Okay, maybe I will love it as much as he does because I LOVE me some outside activities and who doesn't just love that movie?
IF the weather is alright, we are going to take Jenna too! I bet she would have a good time "people watching." She gets that from her aunt.. =)
Tomorrow will be another fun-filled day! We are going to be up early for yard sales! Tammy & Bridgett like to go as much as mom and myself so you can bet your butt we are headed out tomorrow! Look out Corinth (and surrounding areas.. ha!)!!
Also, the Green Market is tomorrow, so we will have to make a stop there. I need to "re-stock" on some fudge. Mary W. if you are reading this, I am now drooling just thinking of your mama's fudge.... mmmmmmm! How long is it until Christmas??? LOL!
Aaaaand, I am quite sure we will be making a stop in for a slugburger. I mean, hello! This IS Corinth... =)
Past that- who knows what we will end up doing, but I am DETERMINED to get some pictures this weekend. So be looking for those next week! =)
Before I go, I want to ask each of you to please take a second and say a special prayer for someone I at this point cannot point out. They are VERY dear to me and they have some VERY exciting news, but I am under a sworn secrecy that I cannot tell WHO it is, but this person will be bringing home either...
in December! =))))))
So, please take a second and pray for this miracle (or miracles) to be SAFE and for their sweet mommy & daddy to have a healthy baby (or babies).
You are truly an AMAZING inspiration and have provided SO many of my friends, family, & loved ones with SO much joy. I am SO very grateful for the opportunites that you have provided me, even the hard ones. Those are the moments that have taught me who I am and where I am headed. So again, thank you.
Have a WONDEFUL weekend!!!
