A Titanic Weekend!

Last weekend was a great few days in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  We met up with our friends from North Carolina and we simply just had a delightful 3 days!  
We arrived on Friday and took in the wonderful museum of the infamous Titanic.  
So worth it!  I was the only one in our group that died.  
Yes, I was a woman and yes, I was a first class passenger.  However, I simply gave up my seat to a woman heading back to New York to be with her children.  There ya go...clearly, a martyr.  
Not sure I could have done that in real life considering the severity of the situation.
One of my favorite parts of the museum was feeling the temperature of the water that was at 28 degrees.
It was a moving experience and one of my favorite facts was that White Star Line spared no expense to decorating with the finest of every detail.  So much so, they returned the marble and stone that was originally to be placed where the grand staircase was because a new more expensive and super flooring had just been released and was a sign of posterity because only the wealthy could afford it.  Guess what it was?
 Okay, I was quite shocked for sure.
 Clay, Barbara, Me, Brianna, and Brian

We spent 4 hours in the museum and honestly we could have stayed longer if we read every single word.
At the end of the tour we placed rose petals in a huge box that will be spread over the wreckage site on April 12, 2012.  100 years after her the tragedy.

The weekend was great and here are just a few composites to show our fun.
 Saturday was the Aquarium, Shopping, Eating, and of course the St. Patrick's Day Parade that featured SANTA CLAUSE!  Yes, there must have been about 400 Santa helpers in town for their annual get together.  They came as far away as Texas and Washington to be in the parade.  
 Very different considering we were in an Irish kinda mood.

Saturday night on our way back to our hotel (we walked everywhere) in town, we had our photo taken and this one is Brian's favorite.  The other photo we are all mean looking for sure.  No smiling.

I touched up the color a bit.  But you get the idea.  We all had a great time!

Creativity, New Numbers, & Men of Numbers

This is what I did.  I enjoyed a crop that was sponsored by Studio Calico
 I loved meeting women within the Bowling Green area
 and the ladies from April and Lorie's church were simply delightful. 
I came home with some great scrapbook pages and 
lots of fabulous goodies from Studio Calico.
Lorie and I had a great time scrapping together and she was a fabulous hostess!
I will be doing this again next year.  
Thanks for the invite!

The Alpha Course

I am super stoked about this 10 week course we are taking at our church, Broadway UMC.
 Thought Provoking. 
 Study and Evidence of Christ as revealed through an Attorney's/Barrister's Eyes.

I am once again excited about learning more about my Lord.
I am once again about making new relationships with sisters and brothers in Christ.
Yes, it is a BIG WOW factor!!

Mundane Happenings, really.

Chores, Counting Calories, Working Out, and of course...Creating.

Don't you just love the smell of FRESHLY IRONED SHIRTS?  
I do.  While I was ironing today, this is what went through my mind.
Ironing while watching "Bridget Jones' Diary."
My husband always looks great going to work.  
I see him in shorts, t-shirts, jeans, and of course his beloved sports attire that has his favorite football team proudly displayed and often faded from wearing it too much and continuing to hold 
on to the shirt that would be regarded as BLASPHEMY should we ever get rid of it.
He is a man who loves his clothes and NEVER WEARS anything more than once to work 
within a 3 week period.  Ummm, yes...he is a bit vain.
I wished I could say that about his weekend attire.
I love these patterns and colors.
Oh yeah, here is another happening today! not shout too loudly.
This is of course, in POUNDS!

That is about it for now.  
Just wanted to catch you up!

OH, I am creating. 
 I will share once I have completed my latest project.
