Happy Memorial Day!

First and foremost I want to give thanks to our troops, those currently serving, retired, and those who have been killed or wounded in battle in the name of our freedeom ... we had a beautiful memorial service at our county courthouse this morning. I had a good friend who died serving a couple of years ago and it really hit home how his family and friends have suffered. Rest in Peace WCM! Now for me memorial day means one of these... Preferably at the beach but since I started a new job this year I didn't go on vacation. Mom and I cooked burgers on the George Foreman Grill and baked some Ore'Ida Sweet potato fries to go with it. Dessert was some of this:
Mom's blueberry cobbler. A warm scoop of heaven. I love when mom cooks because she doesn't really think about calories and fat - just tasty goodness.
We went back to Burkes Outlet...see previous post on my shoe buying splurge. Mom got 15% off today because it's Monday so I bought a new lunchbag. I decided I needed a second because I nearly forgot to get mine from the fridge at work twice last week. This is a Lilly Bloom Bag (originally $40 what!!!! and I bought it for $15 before mom's discount).
We saw the 4 pm showing of Robin Hood with Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett. I loved it, mom fell asleep - it's just not her kind of movie. I loved all the action but the movie didn't spend enough time developing the characters. The story is suppose to be the precursor to the Robin Hood story we all know but the set up at the end leaves me to believe there might be a sequel.
Finally we did some grocery shopping at Walmart and I picked up this shower curtain for my bathroom back at my mom's house. I'm not sure how long I'll stay here before finding my new place but I absolutely hated the sheer silver shower curtain she had up. I have beauty product overflow on the outer corners and you could see it through the curtain. Eh, I liked it at the store but I really like it in the room.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!!! I know this post is all over the place but for memorial day I wanted to end with this:
"Greater love has no man that this, than to lay down one's life for his friends." John 15:13

  1. Sounds like you had a good weekend! That cheeseburger looks amazing! I'm on a fruit/veggie diet this week due to too many cheeseburgers this weekend!
