Nancy and I have spent the last three evenings till midnight trying to get a birthday present made for my mom. We're throwing her a secret 70th birthday bash (shhh!) with about 100 friends and family coming. It's a Smoky Mountain-themed party, since she and I love it so much. Nancy's mom is a retired caterer, and is designing and creating a mountain-shaped cake, Cake Boss style! It'll be a wonder if we can all keep the secret for two more weeks.

Anyway, besides the party, we've decided to do one of those hardback photobooks that Shutterfly makes. We've upload 200 pictures to Shutterfly of our trips to the mountains with her, and arranged them in the book. I have to say, it's a great present idea! You guys should check it out: http://www.shutterfly.com/photo-books

I have another birthday party to go to for my niece this evening. It should give me a chance to get some practical experience with my new camera!

I hope y'all have a great day!
That is a wonderful present you are planning for your mom! Enjoy your party tonight - a very Happy Birthday to your niece, too!

But the good news is that the matter will soon be concluded, over, and done with for good. Time for me to put it away and look ahead to the long weekend and our upcoming vacation.

You're all the sweetest people I know after my Mr.
You're the best.
I'm glad it isn't health-related! I pray you will be able to shake those blues off fast, Merry! {{{HUGS}}}

Things are still emotional, but the sun is out today and the weather is nice, and I believe something that simple is helping everyone around town. As a teacher, my wife is still having a hard time with what happened at the schools that were hit, and at her own school. Tomorrow will be emotional as they allow the kids back in the schools (those that weren't directly hit) to say goodbye to their friends and collect personal belongings and see their teachers.

Well, y'all have a good day!

If there's anything I've missed in the posts I am sorry and hope everything is going good for you all!
I'm glad the sun being out and nice weather is helping everyone in your town, Ryan!

Looking forward to seeing you all tonight!!

Ryan & MerryCarey, you & yours are in my thoughts & prayers.

I had a lovely time at lunch yesterday with my girlfriend. It was fun to catch up!! And the food at this little pub is amazing! Who would know to look at it, that it's in the middle of a furniture Homestore?! Quite a brilliant idea, if you ask me. I'm sure many husbands go hang out there while their wives & families shop.

Attachment 1703

The road trip was so nice, about an hour each way, through the countryside. Love looking at all of the farms & small towns. It was cloudy & 70 degrees, perfect driving weather. I turned up some Bruce Springsteen & enjoyed.

Adrian & I worked on pulling our credit reports. This weekend, we will go over them with a fine tooth comb, and challenge discrepancies. You really have to look out for yourself! I already see someone else's name on mine :/ That can't be good.

It's going to be another cloudy & stormy day here. I don't think anything severe, though. I always check my Weather Channel app in the morning.

Lots to do today. And it's my best friends birthday, so calling her is first on my list!!

Praying you all have a safe & blessed day!!

Actually things are "sorted out," but they sorted out in a disheartening way. It is what it is. Just a bump in the road. I take the jolt and keep moving forward.
