Today is Chris’s 25th birthday…and lucky him, he doesn’t have to work! I’m sure that he will have a fun day at home with Max and out on the golf course.
Happy Birthday to the man that I am very lucky to call my husband and (finally) get to live with! He is my spider killer, dog walking partner and keeps me laughing. I love you!

Sunday morning brought more exploring and the ride home. All in all, a great weekend getaway!
Saturday, August 2, 2008
After a fairly long week (having to watch the boss’s children and have new client meetings), I was lucky enough to have an understanding husband who took to the kitchen when I said I didn’t feel like cooking on Friday night. I was able to read on the couch with Max while Chris whipped up Chicken Parmesan and even opened a bottle of wine for me. I’m one fortunate wife, most guys would just order take-out!
On Saturday morning the guys played the longest game of golf ever….9:30 tee time and they got home around 3pm. They blamed it on a slow party in front of them. Brittany and I went to spinning class at the gym in the morning and then all the girls went to tea at McGuffs Tea Emporium in downtown Fayetteville. This was my first tea but it is a family tradition and we had a wonderful time. The tea (Republic of Tea) was very enjoyable and the food was awesome, I can’t wait to go back! After our very pleasant meal, we spent time checking out all the shops in the downtown. We got some great wine at Bob and Sherree’s Wine shop that was just delicious! They were offering tastings on Saturday afternoon and we just couldn’t resist.
Sunday was a lazy day with shopping and TV watching…perfect activities for the hot, humid day. Chris’s parents and siblings stayed until Monday morning until I left for work and they started the trek back to Ohio. It’s so nice to have guests and we truly enjoyed having them stay with us! Unfortunately, I was having such a great time I forgot to take photos. Once I get some from Steve and Sharon, I’ll post them.
PS. We made a great appetizer that everyone should try: Baked Brie. Take a chunk of Brie cheese and wrap it up in Pillsbury crescent roll dough, be sure to seal all seems and perforations. Brush with a mixture of melted butter and honey. Top with slivered almonds. Bake in oven at 375 degrees for 15 minutes until golden brown. Baste with more butter/honey mixture once while baking and when removed from oven. Let cool a few minutes and serve.
