Are you serious?

So...this weekend, Mike and I went to Savannah. (This December tradition started mostly because of my addiction to the Food Network and admiration for Paula Deen).

Saturday morning, Mike completely surprised me and caught me off guard and asked me to marry him. Keep in mind, it was 8:15 AM, and we spent the previous night on River Street. I thought I had heard correctly, but asked him at least 3 times, "Are you serious?" He said yes, he was serious, I told him yes....then he had to tell me to put my ring on. I immediately wanted to come home and tell everyone, but Mike told me we had some more eating to do...we ate at Uncle Bubba's (Paula's brother's restaurant) Saturday night, and today ate the Sunday buffet at The Lady & Sons. We tried not to talk to anyone, so as not to relay any excitement, etc...meanwhile, realizing we were nearing home, I learned my mom had gone to Auburn to visit my brother---FOR THE DAY! So, we had to wait to tell her until late tonight...which is why phone calls were made very late!

At this time, we don't have a date set, or any plans...we will wait to the first of the year to make arrangements, etc...

I will post pictures from the weekend once we upload them...probably Tuesday night...

But for now, I leave you with my ring---it's so glad to see daylight instead of hanging out in a bedside table...

Oh...and before you ask...NO, we did not see Paula or her sons this weekend. :(

Happy Monday!

Venting Session

I just want to blog for a bit to relieve some stress...

1. First of all, I do not like Denny the Ghost on Grey's Anatomy.

2. I am not happy that ABC is not going to renew Dirty Sexy Money.

3. (This is what sent me over the edge). I went to Wal-Mart tonight, and while putting my items on the belt, I noticed the girl (I refuse to call her a lady), was strategically separating her purchases...then, I notice why. She is paying for her food purchases with food stamps. (I am okay with this...) BUT, she then proceeds to spend $70 in CASH on beer, cigarettes, and lighters. Meanwhile, her child is wriggling around the buggy (her child is wearing NO shoes-and it's winter), and the mom refuses to realize her child was getting stuck in the buggy. The woman finally turns around, flashes her nose ring, and puts her purse in the buggy. I was boiling at this point...thank God, that I had a large purchase, because I would've hated to see her load up her car (probably an Escalade) with all her goods. UGH!!!

Okay, I will go back to the corner now....
