Finally... a VACATION! I flew down to Tennessee
Saturday, September 28th to visit Jenn at Feathered Angels Sanctuary and our dear friend
Mary flew up from Louisiana with her best friend Vivian.
so much fun hanging out with each other and visiting all
the ducks and geese (including the famous Buttercup!).
It was really wonderful and oh so rejuvenating.
wasn't in the budget for me to travel this year, but a
dear ducky friend of ours used his frequent flyer miles
for a free ticket--what a SURPRISE that was!
the trip I noticed how hard Jenn's husband Mike works
all the time (remind you of anyone?!). I felt really
bad, like he wasn't getting in on any of the fun, so I
woke up one morning and hit the internet, trying to find
something we could do that might get him more involved
and pull him away from his work for a few hours. Well...
girls and I headed out to The Peabody Hotel to see the
Mallard ducks in the fountain and do a little bit of
shopping. After finishing up there we took a minute and
sat down in some chairs near a window and I saw a huge
sign across the street that said, "BIG food!"
looked at Jenn and joked around and said, "Does that
mean 'bulk food'--like large quantities of food, or does
it actually mean 'big food'--like giant french fries
because I'm starving."
Imagine my surprise when she said it was really BIG
food! She said they make giant hamburgers and I knew we
all had to go! And we did! What better way to get Mike
in on the fun! So we each ordered lunch and had a giant
burger made to go, so we could bring it home to him.
The calorie sign is a little
Northerners vs. Southerners joke between me and Mike
assembled the burger in Jenn's kitchen and then brought
it upstairs to Mike's office and... SURPRISE! He really
enjoyed it and it tasted really good too!
Now keep in mind... this is the
SMALL burger on the menu!
Look at Jenn cracking up in the
The trip ended all to quickly and I was home again
on Wednesday, October 2nd before I knew it. I can't wait for the girls to come up
north this May, so we can all be together again.
