I met two of Georgia's finest peaches!

Roger and I met Peach(Laura) and her sweetheart of a daughter(who reminded me of my daughter Kiereney Jo with a fantastic personality--as I told Laura, as long as they act like they've had raising around others, we've done our job! lol) at Cracker Barrel for supper Sunday night.

Where 2+ hours went I do not know! It was if we had known them forever. We talked about the "nectar of the South"(sweet tea), we talked kids, we talked chocolate, we talked about Caring Bridge kids and Peach and Roger were swapping recipes. Peach is in a serious state of computer withdrawal so send her strong vibes for endurance.

Peach brought me a collectors spoon from Georgia with a Georgia peach on the top of it.

It is phenomenal. I almost slept with it last night. I will always have a spoon in case of a spoon famine. Thank you again, Peach, for my Georgia peach spoon. I love it!

I see a spoon collection in my future. Gonna collect all 50 states or die trying! I've added making a spoon rack for my collection to Roger's to-do list!

It was my first blogger meeting! Peach had the coolest camera so the pics of the event are on her camera and I imagine she'll post them when she gets home.

And hopefully not my last!

Off to PT.

Have a Beauty-of-A-Beast-ly Monday or a Manic Monday or whatever you desire. Just live it to the fullest!

Glad you had fun with Laura this past weekend. And, that was so nice of her to bring you a gift! Isn't it great to meet so many new people from this blog? I am looking forward to meeting everyone in Boston too. It is going to be so much fun!

SOunds like you had a great time - I suspected nothing less. It was great to chat with you last night - always a nice treat for me!

You tell Macon to behavior herself. Scaring her loved ones is NOT a good thing to do!

Sounds like you a wonderful time with Laura. I'm glad that you all had a good evening. I wish I could join you all this fall, but I don't think I will be able to.

And I hope you get to meet this Georgia Girl one day, too! Glad y'all had a good meeting. :)

No, you have not sent me the recipe for Italian beef, but I would love it. I do have a crockpot and I have been (somewhat) successful cooking in it.

Ha ha, we went to Cracker Barrell for dinner Saturday night AND for breakfast Sunday morning. Not my choice, but we had family visiting and it was so nice for us all to be together.
Enjoy your spoon! =D

I was just looking at all of your cute Dachsie pictures. Love Lenny! So cute! How many do you currently have? We only have one Dachshund but I am dying for another one. My husband is deployed and my first order of business when he comes home from Iraq next month is to begin the Dachsie persuading! :)

Alice said...

THANK YOU for the recipe! It's one I think I can actually do. And it sounds delicious. I can't wait to try it out.
