Hey there peeps! IIIII aaaaammmm baaacccckkk! WOW. A nine day break from writing. Geez....
Soooo many insights to share. But I think I need a good night's sleep to process it all. You know what they say.. always sleep on it!
I do hope you enjoyed our guest bloggers! I think each really layed it on the line and was super honest. I really appreciate them sharing their thoughts and talents with us!
Now - for a pictorial journey of my trip. (I did snag a few pics from my sis - since most of my pics were taken with my phone. :-( )
Friday morning - a little greek yogurt with dill, strawberries and a banana for breakfast!
Lunch time the egyptian and I stopped by Cafe Lazio for a lunch pizza. Yes - we sat outside and enjoyed the afternoon before we took off for Georgia.
Before we got to my parent's home - a little salsa & guac for the road at a really neat Mexican restaurant.
These two have not seen one another since December - 9 months later - lots o' love!
The egyptian shared a bedtime story with my niece, Autumn.
Saturday morning I went for a "make over" on my little 4 year old niece. She ate it up!!
Then she decided to try on my scarf and sunglasses!!!
Saturday night we helped our friend Robby celebrate his 42nd birthday!
It was a pirate themed party!
Lisa and I helped the Pirate feel more at home!
Diana helped just a little bit more!
There were even jello shots! This is the birthday boy's sister in law.
Here we are leaving the Birthday party. (Right after my school bully showed up - oh yeah! LOL)
I spent Tuesday and Wednesday in Atlanta for a work conference. After it ended - we went to the Coke Museum. I have been before - but I KNEW the egyptian would get a kick out of it.
There was an egyptian coke poster at the museum!
Heading back to Middle Georgia
Mom & Dad at Cafe International in Helen. Dad had a really rough week (health and work wise (more on that later)). We took a short day trip to Helen. His blood sugar was all over the place - but we made it!
There I am! With the Egyptian.
I went for the Prime Rin sandwich... yummmmmm
Oh yeah we did... lol
Don't forget - it's Oktoberfest

Chilling out at lunch. I think I turned pink!
