A fun little weekend...

As you all know I work for Polo Ralph Lauren and I love it! On Friday, I was invited to witness the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for in High Point for their grand opening and I was pretty excited about that, because not only was the Mayor of HP and the Lt. Governor of NC present, so was Ralph Lauren's son. He was there as the guest of Honor and well, if you know me, I'm celebrity crazy. So, I was very excited to meet David Lauren. I listened to him speak about the company and he has a way to captivate an audience. I feel so comfortable at Polo Ralph Lauren. After he cut the ribbon, my group and I took a picture with him. I could have just let it stop there, but I just HAD to have my own picture with him too, so I got my picture taken with him. I'm such a dork I know, but it was so cool!

Saturday was a fun day as well as I celebrated my friend Katie's bachelorette party. We celebrated in Charlotte and had a great time. My other friend Jamie's husband got us a deal to stay at Hampton Inn for 29 dollars a night, so we got two rooms and had food delivered to the room before our night started for 20 dollars a person and there were 6 of us. So you know that I LOVE bargains! I will tell you that I can not hang with the young folk. Once 11 pm came around, I was ready to go to bed. I don't know how I made it in College! Also, what's up with the clothing there? If you go out one night in Charlotte, you'll understand what I'm talking about. I'm not posting pics of the party, because as the sayin goes, "What happens in Charlotte, stays in the Charlotte." Don't worry Katie, your secret is safe with me. :)

Sunday, Terry, Skylar and I just relaxed. I noticed one of our indoor tomato plants has begun some activity. There were a couple of plants that we had to grow indoors first before they can go outside and it had only been 9 days and we have tomato sprouts!! I couldn't believe it!! We then looked at our garden and the plants have grown there too. I'm so excited. I can't wait until we can harvest them. Our neighbor's garden is absolutely beautiful! So they inspire us to grow more things. They grew so much. I hope our garden looks just half as good as theirs.

This was just seeds a week ago.

So, Skylar has been a little sweet man this past week. Isn't he always, you say? I'm going to plead the 5th on that one. :) We like to play little games with him and blow raspberries with our lips and then place our finger tips up to our mouth at the same time to make it sound even funnier and well, Skylar started to copy us. He thinks it's so funny, but he truly is a little comedian himself. He makes us laugh all the time. I love how he will try and do what you do. I love to see what new things he's discovered. At daycare on Monday, he ate lima beans for the first time and he loved them. (I don't like them!) His teacher said he loved that more than anything else. I also try to not let things bother me when he makes this face that resembles "Oh my gosh, this is the grossest thing I ever ate!!" when he's eating something I cooked. :) Ha! Here are some pictures of Skylar.

Showing those pearly whites!

This is what dinner time looks like now at our house

I will have to dig up the actual color. That color looks really great with white trim and black accents. I will get that color to you soon.
