Celebrity Sighting!!

So Collin and I were at Mi Cocina last night on our usual, predictable Friday night date when we both saw someone who made us do a double take. As we were being seated, we passed by Jason Whitten who was having dinner with his family!! I immediately recognized him, but Collin later admitted that he was actually too busy looking at the cute baby that he was holding instead of realizing that it was Whitten!! Oh goodness!!

Weekend Roundup

Collin and I had a great long Memorial day weekend! We got to spend a lot of quality time together and finished some small projects around the house.

My first order of business was to figure out a way to stop those pesky birds from eating my tomatoes. They are starting to turn red and of course the birds love them. First they attacked my strawberries and now that they are done producing, the birds have moved on to the tomato plants!! I covered the plants with some plastic mesh stuff so we will see how that goes. We also hung two pics in the dining room. Count that a success as they are hanging straight and C and I didn't fight the whole time we were measuring to hang them.

We also made a trip to go see the new Indiana Jones movie. Not as good as the originals and scary to me as there were green, big-eyed aliens in it!! (Many a nightmare I had as a child with these in my dreams!!)

Overall, it was a relaxing weekend. Hope you had a great one!!

Isn't he cute??

Here is a pic of my sweet husband from this weekend. He purchased these dorky headphones so that his loud movie watching on early Saturday mornings won't wake me up while I am sleeping in.
Thanks hubby!!
Now if I can only get those dogs in the neighbor's yard to quit waking me up early too!!

Weekend Roundup

We had a great weekend here in married land. We had our usual Friday night date, you know, Costco, Mi Cocina, and Central Market. On Saturday I met my mom and dad in Canton for some excellent flea market shopping. A tornado couldn't stop us!! I bought an old red bucket that has a handle, a small antique fan to go next to my big fan, a white milk glass bowl, and 2 matching pieces of art work to put in the dining room. I just can't convince Collin to come with me anymore. He says that there is only junk in Canton. Can you imagine!! The nerve!! Can't wait till next time!

Meredith joined us later for dinner. We enjoyed hearing about her adventures in Uptown. How sad is it that I was asleep by 9 and she was just leaving to go out!! Depressing!!

Before we knew it, it was Sunday. After church we ate at Babe's in Roanoke.....mmmm. Hadn't been there before, it was delicious!! Definitely a once every six months type of meal. They only serve fried chicken or chicken fried steak. Yikes!! I was not disappointed with my choice of chicken fried steak. I feel it sticking to my thighs!!

Hope you had a great weekend!!
