This weekend we headed down south to Magnolia to visit Scott's parents. We left a little early from work Friday and after a quick stop at Starbucks we were on our way. (Thanks to Jamie - the sweetest, most thoughtful friend who sent us a starbucks card this week along with the most touching card!)
Six long hours later - we got there just in time to go to bed. The next day we all got up late and ate breakfast. Scott and his dad went to their deer camp/farm about 30 minutes away because Scott's dad has been doing a lot of work out there and he had a huge pile of stuff he needed to burn. So they went out there and worked on that fire all day long.
Scott's mom and I went out there around lunch time and took Scott his favorite thing about south Arkansas:
Chick A Dilly Chicken. If you know him - then you know that's all he ever talks about. (That and how much he hates Houston Nutt.........but we have moved past that. ha! )
While he worked hard - I enjoyed a nice peaceful day of movies. I have heard my friend Elizabeth talk about all of these movies based on books by Janette Oke called the "Love comes softly" series. They are Christian movies and some of them star Izzy from Gray's Anatomy. They are sort of like House on the Prarie - in fact Michael Landon, Jr produced them. Well - they were having a marathon of all of these movies on the Hallmark channel. I think Scott's mom and I watched five in a row. I never have time to just sit and watch movies like that. If you have never seen these - look them up - they are SO good!
Then Scott's dad and mom cooked us a big feast of chicken and beans and potato salad and rolls and pie. Once again - I ate WAY too much.
We had a great weekend - hope all of you did as well!!!!
