Back from Fayetteville!

Hi Everyone! I got back from Fayetteville this afternoon. I had a wonderful weekend with Angie! She is so sweet!! Friday night we went to this wonderful Italian restaurant in downtown Fayetteville. It was truly awesome!! I had Penne ala Vodka Sauce with Shrimp, which was divine! Angie had lobster ravioli (she was so nice she left me sample it and it was soooooo good!!!). We went to a lovely tea room in Pinehurst, NC on Saturday and then drove over to Southern Pines and walked along the streets and stopped at shops along the way. I bought a wonderful smelling bar of soap called Coastal Verbena and a pottery butter dish. We had a great time!! That night we thought we would go to the movie King's Speech. We got to the theater in plenty of time but there was a mix up in the time of the movie. Online it said it was 7 when in fact it was 6:30! We decided we didn't want to miss the first half hour of the movie so we went to a local restaurant and had burgers. I left right after lunch today and made it home by 2:30. It was a really easy ride home.

I had a wonderful time and want to thank Angie so much for her hospitality!!

I'd like to see that movie, too. Didn't Colin Firth get a Golden Globe for it?


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
