Last Saturday, my Mom and sister were in town for the weekend and we attended a Women's Brunch at my Mom's church. We had a wonderful time! This is not the best picture of Mom, but it was the only one I had of us.
There were 100 ladies in attendance! We had brunch and then heard a member of the church speak on her cancer experience.
This is my good friend Nancy who prepared the food. She is an awesome cook! We had homemade scones, 2 kinds of quiche, oven roasted potatoes, cheese grits, French toast w/mixed berry sauce, fresh fruit, juice and coffee. Nancy and her sister love cooking and have even authored their own cookbook. Nancy's sister is the pastry chef at our local country club, so these gals know how to cook!!!
This fresh fruit bowl was delicious!
A view of the buffet table. Don't those scones look good?
Last weekend my Mom came down to see her eye doctor. My Mom, sister and I spent Friday and Saturday "thrifting". We went to almost all the thrift shops in the city where I live and we found some of the best treasures. I collect milk glass and I got a lot of pieces to add to my collection. I was thrilled. I also picked up a lot of other odds and ends. I love to thrift shop! The thrill of the hunt is so much fun. Plus, I love to buy things and then re-do them.
As you can see, we had a wonderful ladies weekend, doing just what we love to do. Eat and shop!!!
Here's hoping you all have a great Labor Day weekend. I am at home by myself this weekend trying to get my upstairs packed up and ready to have new flooring put down. I feel like I am moving, because I am having to pack up all the knick knacks and store them downstairs, so the flooring men will only have to move the furniture. I can't find anything around here now. It will be worth it in the long run, but it has been a lot of hard work. I will be glad to have everything back in order. I am not a neat freak, but I do like some order to my living. This place is a wreck!
My dining room looks like a storage building and my living room is full of new mattresses that I have for 2 of the bedrooms. I would love to have the flooring put in and the rooms put back together by mid October. Because at that point, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be just around the corner. Always something going on when you own a home.
Enjoy your weekend!!!
Love & blessings from NC!
