What a Wonderful Visit from a Dear Friend!!

This weekend Angie, my friend from Fayetteville came for a visit. She arrived Friday night and we chatted and chatted. Saturday we chatted some more and then we headed to Skillets for brunch. Next we went to a bead shop in the Midwood Plaza section of Charlotte for some wire I needed. Then we headed over to where John and I will be having our house built. We went through the model home and drove passed the lot where our home will be built. After that we stopped by Megan and Ken's so Jenny, Megan, Ken and Owen could meet Angie. Then we headed over to our house where I proceeded to cook Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner for us. In the mean time John came home and he had Owen with him! Owen and Angie formed a great bond!! Here are some pictures of the two of them!

Angie and Owen were playing in this picture. Angie would do "raspberries" on Owen cheeks and neck and he would laugh and laugh at her!

Angie had shiny buttons on her shirt and Owen loved them!!

I love this picture of the two of them. They are great friends!!

Saturday night Angie and I were talking downstairs. Angie on the couch and me in my one in a half chair. Angie hear Owen crying. I went upstairs to calm him down thinking he lost his pacifier or something like that. No that was not the case. He was crying and crying like he was in pain. I brought him downstairs and he would not stop crying. He seemed like something was really hurting. John came downstairs too. I changed him and he cried even more. John finally called Jenny and she came to see what the problem was. In the meantime we had put an Orajel like cream on his gums (he is teething) and he burped and burped. He stopped crying right before Jenny got here! Mind you he had a very long day-St. Patrick's Day Parade, no nap, he is teething, Mommy wasn't there to sooth him (he has become very clingy to Jenny) and our neighbors decided to have this huge, very loud party which I think woke Owen up. The poor little guy seemed comforted that Jenny was there and he proceeded to fall asleep on my chest. By that time it was around 1:30ish and we were all tired. Jenny went to the back guest room, Angie went to the Guest Room by our room, Owen was in his crib and John and I went to our room. Everyone then slept all night!!

Today Jenny took Owen home, Angie, John and I chatted some more. Then Angie, John and I went to Dean and DeLuca, Orvis and Renovators Supply. We came back to the house and chatted some more and then Angie headed home.

The house seems empty without her here! We always have a great time when we get together and I hope we can visit with each more frequently!! As I type this I am sipping iced tea and I just had a the most delicious piece of chocolate that Angie brought as a gift!! It is awesome-life is good!!

Safe trip home Angie!!

Oh! I miss both you and Angie! It was so fun meeting you both in person at my blog brunch. I really wanted to do another one this past fall, but life got in the way.

So glad the two of you had a great time. Maybe this year I can do a blog brunch again....

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!
