Beautiful horse farm on I75 in Lexington.
Me, Mom, and Nicole at the fashion show.
Elk Creek Winery in Owenton, Ky
When my birthday rolled around this year I told David the only thing I wanted was to go to Kentucky for the weekend by myself. I didn't get my hopes up but just waited to see if it all worked out and boy did it ever! I left last Thirsday for 4 nights at my Mom's. Here is the play-by-play:
Thursday-dinner and shopping with my high school friend Cammie.
Friday-Lunch with my sister, pedicure with my niece and Mom, then Nicole spent the night. We watched Australia and my sister-in-law Karen stopped by.
Saturday-Mom had gotten us tickets to a fashion show that her good fried put on through the Kentucky Women's Club. Nicole had to get back for a wedding then Mom and I rode out to Owenton, KY to see the new Elk Creek Vineyards. Don't know how they found that land. It was beautiful! Saturday night Mom and I watched Secret of the Bees.
Sunday-went to church with Mom, went to visit dad, then back to Mom's for some more girl time with Nicole and my nieces. We watched Secret Life of Bee's -again!
Unfortunately it was time to leave on Monday. It was a fantastic time and I will always treasure it! My family gave me a huge welcome home with dinner at Long Horn. Thanks David for such a great weekend! You're the best husband ever!

Today Jenna and I had a great morning at a new Belk that opened near us (finally- something close to us)! They had "Diva Day" where you got your make up done and the girls could walk the red carpet and get their picture taken. It was fun and the new Belk is very nice. There is a Target in the shopping center too. I've already been there 3 times this week! I'm in serious trouble. We had a good morning even though it's cold outside!

Wow. I can't believe it's almost been a month since I've posted. I'm trying not to neglect my blog but time is just getting away from me. We had the best snow on Sunday! It started snowing around 11:20 while we were at church. It had been snowing about an hour by the time church let out and when the kids saw it they went nuts. We spend all afternoon out in in (well, the kids did) and boy did they have fun. I especially enjoyed watching jared because jared's thing is that is was never goint to snow in georgia and "that's a fact" he would say. He just walked and walked around in it for the longest time. This was also Jenna's first time to really remember and participate in the fun. The only bad side was that David was working and missed the day with us. He got home safely on Monday and, of course, the kids were out of school so we had another day to play in it. I will never forget Jenna screaming as she slid down PaPa and NaNa's hill. The snowflakes were HUGE! I was thinking how beautiful the snow was and was a gift those tow days were. A time to slow things down, make hot chocolate, popcorn, and just chill out. All the laundry was a pain but all in all it was very fun.
