I mentioned earlier that we also spent a few days in Arkansas with my husbands grandmother. She is one of the warmest people I know. I instantly feel at home around her. She has a wonderful southern accent. We actually have a lot in common. We both love knitting, sewing and creating things for the people we love. My family and I have been the lucky recipients of her her beautiful "handiwork" as she calls it. This time we didn't really get a chance to do much knitting but we did a lot of eating. One day while we were there she apologized for taking off for an hour.
She had an appointment with her "beauty operator." I don't think you can see it but her nails are always manicured. I love it! I hope that I take care of myself that way when I am in my eighty's. Maybe I will get it together by then. My husband is so lucky to still have his grandmothers. We had ANOTHER birthday party for my daughter with her. It was the pinkest cake I have ever seen in my life.
This is the piece of chicken fried steak that my husband ate. It was massive! I can honestly say I have never seen anything like it. There was a table of "gentleman" sitting near us that told us they were betting on whether or not he could eat it all. I thought he would be sick afterward but he claims that he felt "refreshed". I don't know where he puts it. I ordered salad...but still gained 8lbs!
Its 11:50 pm and I need to go to bed. I have more Mississippi adventures to share tomorrow. I am pretty busy getting ready for a baby shower this weekend, and craft fair next weekend and my four year old wants to know when her "home birthday party" will be. I also have a street fair on May 18th. Just call me the "bionic" woman.
