Saturday after the conference we went to visit Melody's grandma. She amazes me. She's 91 years old, lives on her own in a good sized house, still drives.... and made me some homemade applesauce!!! She gave me lots of hugs and reminded me of my Great Grandpa so much it brought tears to my eyes! Again, I don't have a picture of this wonderful lady, but I sure wish I did.
Saturday night we spent the night at Melody's house. We tried on formals, ate at Cracker Barrel, shopped, talked, and generally had a great time. Sunday we went to Melody's home church. In Sunday school we talked about Jehovah Witness', their beliefs and how to witness to them. It was very interesting and informative. The message was about money's affect on our relationship with Christ... Easier for a Camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich person to know Christ.
After the sermon we went to Bojangles's for a little snack and then some shopping. (I know ironic after the sermon!) It was Christmas open house in an area known as Arlington village. All the stores with full of Christmas shoppers and lots of goodies to eat. (Hence the little snack instead of a full meal.) I definitely fell in love with a little shop called Tickled Pink. Polka dots everywhere... I could have bought a lot in that store. Amazingly I walked out without buying a thing. My favorite was all their polka dot luggage in all different sizes a colors. They are definitely on my wish list, especially the carry-on sizes! I also really enjoyed another store called Pizzaz. It also had a lot of bright polka dots, but no luggage. It did, however, have a whole section of awesome ribbon and yes, I did purchase some. It was SO much fun!
The best part of the whole weekend was coming back home to my wonderful husband!! Who had straightened the whole house, vacuumed, folded all the laundry I didn't quite finish, plus wash a few more loads. He also had some flowers waiting for me. (I love flowers and thought I knew a lot about them, but I've never seen these ones before. I do love them though!! Anyone know their name?) I was happy just to see my husband again, but all the work he did made the reunion even sweeter!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!
