Weekend Review

Jeff took off Friday, so we headed to Auburn and our cabin near Lake Martin for the weekend. We spent most of the day Friday shopping and actually knocked out some Christmas shopping. We stopped in Prattville for a visit to the Bass Pro Shop. I don't mind this one as much as I do the one in Destin. We go there so often that I have every item that I could possibly be interested in memorized. Of course, there are plenty of stores to keep me busy in the same shopping center. Then, it was off to Auburn to walk around in the downtown shops. I love doing this when it isn't quite as busy as game day. We headed to our cabin, "Serenity" for the night. We made sandwiches and ate supper at twilight on the screened porch. It was delightful to just slow down, relax, and be together.

The next morning we ate a home cooked breakfast and went down to "The Plantation House", an adorable gift store near Dadeville. It is always a mistake to go in there. Saturday was no different. The owner was getting ready for the Chamber open house next weekend and working frantically to get her Christmas up. She is generally busy on Saturday mornings too. I fell in love with one of her trees. I asked permission to take several photos.

And yes, I bought way to many ornaments. I plan to use her tree as inspiration to update one of mine. Hubby Jeff was in agreement. We were smitten with it.

I also bought two candlesticks that I thought matched my Christmas china. I can't wait to try them out as a centerpiece for the Christmas dining table.

We will see if I can pull it off at Christmas. I don't think anyone in the world loves the house decorated for Christmas more than my hubby. He teases me all the time about putting it up. My standard line has been, "We have to wait until we do the Pilgrims first." 

We had good friends come in to go to the game with us. Nothing like good friends and an Auburn game.

If you think this selfie is bad, you should have seen the three others before this in order to get him to cooperate.

Always love seeing Nova come down onto the field. One of the great traditions.

And here come the tigers...

It is great to be an Auburn Tiger!

What a game it was! South Carolina and Steve Spurrier were relentless. No punting...just go for 4th downs and make them. Wow. But, hey a win is a win. I will take it.

Lazy Sunday morning and then home. Of course, I absolutely love my time at Serenity and Auburn, but I always miss my church. I love my church. Missed my 4 year olds. I truly never thought I would love teaching the little ones after spending so many years doing the youth. I loved them too. You are always more blessed when you are serving.

Now, up in the morning and back to trying to get my home in order and hoping they finish my sewing room soon.
