Growing up, my mother would walk into a room, and others would flock to her to tell their life stories. Well on Wednesday, that happened to me. I was antiquing, and despite other ladies walking on by the lady stopped me and before I knew it over an hour-and-a-half had passed by as she shared her life story and penchant for genealogy. Yes, I am my mother's daughter.
Earlier that day I had gone to get my hair cut and colored. I go about once every two to two-and-a-half months. The salon is in downtown in an older house renovated into a hair salon. Every time I walk up the steps and look around the painted porch I remind myself of the movie Steel Magnolias. Once inside, I feel relaxed as I sip on black coffee and catchup of the gossip magazines.
The following day, Thursday, I went to The City of Light the home of Inspiration Ministries, and INSP the television network where my hubby works. While there we had a Southern Barbeque dinner and fellowship with friends from his department, followed by the premier of Christmas In The Smokies in the Chapel. This was INSP's first ever original movie featuring Sarah Lancaster and Barry Corbin to name a few. Afterwards, we went for dessert and coffee which always makes for a good evening in my book.
Talking about good evenings, on the Tuesday before I realized I am my mother's Daughter, we went on a date night to one of our favorites, Maggiano's. It was very romantic with the red and white checked tablecloths, dimmed lights, and delicious helping of lasagna. Life is good.
Our weekend was a relaxed one as we had fertility appointments to attend on Friday, and on Monday. I wrote about that in my previous post, so I can keep a record of our journey along the way.
Have a good start to your week,
