Tales of a Georgia Peach!

I just noticed this while looking back at my posts. I'm telling you all what a shoe freak I am and the whole time I'm drinking hot chocolate out of my "Shoe Girl" coffee cup(hot chocolate mug) that my sister gave me for Christmas about 3 years ago. I love that mug, its so cool and totally fits me!

Shoes are my weakness. I love all shoes. The higher the heel the better. I have an obsession with shoes. If I had the money I would own a pair on Manolo Blahniks. But I don't forsee me ever owning a pair, so I will just drool over them on my computer screen. I have ordered a book on how to make your own shoes, this includes how to make high heels. I can't wait! I can justify my shoe fettish then. "But honey, I made them myself, they barley cost me anything!"

Speaking of shoes and Manolo Blahniks, I bought the Sex and the City movie today. I've already seen it. My wonderful husband took me to see it, he was one of two men in the theater of about 150 women.
Happy Birthday, JoAnna!!
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!

Today is my mother-in-laws birthday. And it also happens to be my Mom and Dad's 33 year wedding anniversary.

I wish you all a very happy day!
Today was a good day. Eric and I were both off of work and spent the whole day together. We had errands to run and different things to do. It was cold today, or at least cold for me. 60 degrees is cold to me. Who am I kidding, 75 degrees is cold to me. So it was the perfect day for a nice hot cup of hot chocolate.

Then for dinner I marinated a pork loin with a Two Sisters Gourmet sauce, Vermont Maple Dijon Grilling Sauce. It was wonderful! We also had fried green tomatoes. Yum, Yum!!

1/2 cup corn meal
1/2 cup flour
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg

Dredge sliced tomatoes in the flour then milk mixture then back in flour. Fry two minutes on each side in your choice of oil.

I love this platter, you can't tell much about it with the tomatoes on it. It was a wedding gift from my mother-in-law.

I'm sitting down now with a mimosa and Eric to watch Charlie Wilson's War. Then I'll watch the season premier of Grey's Anatomy, YAY!!

I know this is a little late, but sometimes I'm a little slow in taking my pictures off of my camera.

I am so proud of my husband. He finally graduated from grad school! He had a beautiful graduataion and it was so much fun! Now we're just waiting on the job offers.

And as you can tell some of the pictures are a little fuzzy! I'm still learning how to use my new DSLR. I can take some great pictures outside but the ones inside are the difficult ones.

I took some pictures of my parents for Morgan. She loves my dad all dressed up. He does look pretty handsome! I love it when my two favorite men get all dressed up in their suit and ties.

I got my new cabinets for the laundry room today. They look great. I guess the cabinet shop that moved in next door came in handy for something afterall.

I have been so sad the last week. A good friend of mine, who happens to be my ex-mother-in-law, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. We aren't certain of all of the options yet. She goes for a biopsy next week. She is going to one of the best places around, Duke University.
My daughter Morgan is so very close to her. It is breaking my heart. She has never been sick, she's always been the care giver to everyone else.
Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
