What a GREAT Weekend!

This past weekend I went to Charleston to finally catch up with one my favorite people! Anne Magill and I met at Winthrop University our junior year and immediately become attached at the hip. We were both in the same major (Integrated Marketing Communication), so we conveniently had almost every class together throughout the next two years at Winthrop. Since graduation, I've been a bridesmaid in her wedding, she's been a bridesmaid in mine, and we've been there for each other through all of life's twists and turns. We had such a good time catching up, shopping, eating at all my favorite spots and enjoying the beautiful weather that I didn't want to leave!

On my way back to Savannah, I stopped at my in-laws' house in Bluffton to get the crabs out of our crab cage to cook and clean them. So Mike and I (my father-in-law) went to the dock and dumped the crabs into a bucket (I definitely got pinched!! I feel like an official crabber now!) and took them back to the house to boil them up and clean out all the yummy fresh blue crab meat. It sure is a lot of work for not much meat! Ten years ago I would've never dreamed that me - a little ol' prissy Virginia mountain girl -would be teaching her in-laws how to clean a fresh crab! ha! Life is funny that way I guess!

What did you do this weekend? Tell me about it, I'd love to hear!

On Saturday your grandma, your sister, Shannon, and I did a little shopping at a teacher supply store for Shannon and a sports store for Dad. I got him a new Boston Red Sox pennant for his golf cart. We then came home, had some veggies and cheese and crackers. Grandma and Papa headed back to St Pete. Later that evening, Dad treated me and Shannon to a great dinner at the Chart House. On Sunday we said goodbye to Shannon as she flew back to Raleigh. We had a great weekend too! Miss everyone when we can't all be together, though!
love, mom
