A Wonderful Road Trip and Weekend

Good Monday afternoon all my friends.  Hope you are all having a great day, and that Spring has made an appearance at your home. Today is a regular Monday around the homeplace.  Laundry, cooking and cleaning on the top of my list.  But I have to admit , I am moving kind of slow.  Get comfy, as I have lots to talk about and lots of pics.   Hope you enjoy...

Had a wonderful trip with my frined Jane to Biloxi and Gulfport Ms.  In fact we were so busy roaming and having fun, We didn't take time to stop and take pictures.  We were still awake and talking both nights at 2:3o in the morning.  Both mornings we were snacking on Ruffles Queso Potato Chips.   Wow, They were so good.  I had never had them.  They were habit forming, even at 2:30 in the morning.  Jane's good hubby had pic. of the ocean and He was nice enough to share them with me so I could show you how pretty it is down there.  There are no signs of the oil spill, and altho it will never be like it was before hurricane Katrina, things are returning back to normal.  The beaches are beautiful.  So enjoy...... 
This lighthouse withstood  Katrina when huge mansions were destroyed.  It only substained minimun damange.  Thought that to be amazing as it was right on beach in the path of the storms. 
This sunset is my favorite.  So peaceful and serene.  Yes , it was another wonderful trip with a friend.  Another memory to store in my mind.  Thanks Jane for a great time.  Hope there will be many more fun trips in our future...

Then on Saturday, so tired from traveling, I got up and went shopping with Holly and Darbee Rae.  Yes, I had missed seeing Darbee for a few days.  I talked to her on the phone and she said,"Nana, I miss you."  So I had to spend time with her.  We were at the mall and I decided to take her to her favorite store right now.  She is so into dangling earrings.  Guess that will be her trademark.
She is standing in front of Claires.  She bought dangling coffee cup earrings.  She knows I collect coffee cups and her Daddy LOVES coffee.  She was so proud of them.   She also went to Build a Bear and bought Cuddles her bear an Easter outfit.  Holly was so clever when She went to take the pacifier away from Darbee.  They went to Build a Bear and had the pacifier put in the bear when it was stuffed.  Needless to say, Cuddles is very special to Darbee.
We were leaving the mall and Darbee said the sweetest thing.  She told Holly , " We don't ever want to change Nana."  Guess that made all my aches and pains feel a little better.  We had a great time.
We also found to new junk shops to stop and browse.  I got some old spindles, a few Easter decorations, and saw lots of goodies I would have loved to brought home with me.  Will definitely go back.
If I go on and on, you'll have to stay for dinner.(ha) And I have no idea what it would be.  Hope you are enjoying something fun today.  Until next time.
