Well I have my iPhone loaded with a few books and some new music it is 2:10am I am packed minus all the beauty products that I will pack in the morning, new camera charged and ready for
I am so excited I don't think I will sleep any tonight which is probably a good thing so because I will have plenty time on the flight.  I hope you all have a great Spring break I know ours starts next week and I am sure a few of you are on yours now.  I can't wait to share my trip with you all when I return.

Oh and by the way my God Daughter was born today her name is Brantley she weighed 7lbs 4 oz and she is just perfect.  I got to hold her tonight and give her a little love and little present, she is going to be spoiled for sure.

Well I leave on Saturday for my 10 day trip to China, not to adopt this is a just because trip.  I am so excited!!!  I have to say the packing I think is worse for me than the long flight I have coming.  I hate to pack.  Some people hate to unpack, not me its the packing that gets me every time.  Mikee is still in Syria and loving every minute of it.  He said the Syrians are so nice and great host.  If any of you that have been to China have any advice for me please send it my way, I would love to know what your tips are.

We are having beautiful weather in South Carolina this weekend.  My car said it was 80 on the drive to Charleston today.  We started off at Vickery's downtown today for lunch, they have the best Bloody Marys ever!!!  

Then we walked to a great Antique store and looked around before heading on down King street to have my iPhone replaced that I dropped on Friday!!  Yes I absolutely could not believe I did that but I did so off to see what the damage was and it wasn't good.  I had to purchase a new phone!!!  Yes I thought I was going to scream but it had to be done because I love this phone!!
Then after strolling down King Street and picking up Mikee's watch that we had sent off a while back to be repaired, yes Beth this is the watch you dropped off last year!!!  We are such slackers.  We had to go to Charleston Place and check out a few shops and get a few things for our upcoming trips.  Mikee is heading to Damascus Syria in a few days then I will be heading to China before he heads home so no trip like those are complete without a few things from Brookstone.

And because I took so much time deciding which new bag I wanted that would hold my camera, camcorder and act as a purse, which I decided on this one below.
We missed getting to see the Angel Oak Tree which is 65 ft high and believed to be over 1500 years old!   We got there right as they were closing the gates.  Mikee and I have both been here before but we thought Brady would enjoy seeing it so we will head back soon.
We then headed over to see baby Burkett and visit with his family before heading over to Savory Sushi, Mikee's cousins new place for dinner.  It was a great day and wonderful weather. Hope you all enjoyed your Saturday to.

I have been thinking of my Dad a lot lately and seem to have so many things that come up in daily life that makes me think of him or want to talk to him just to ask him a question or two.  Brady talks about him almost daily and loves to say I wonder if PaPa did this or liked this to when he was my age?  I am so glad he has fun memories of him and thinks of him and knows that we will see him again one day.  We just had Grandparents Day at school on Friday and it made me sad to know he couldn't be there with Brady but I know he was there in his heart for sure.   Below is a picture of my Dad when he was a little boy that is in our front office a lot of people think its Brady when they first see it.  I never really noticed it till this past year but Brady has my Dads hands and a lot of his personality.  I just love that and feel so blessed to have had such a wonderful Dad.  I have some more fun pictures of Grandparents Day but haven't downloaded them yet I will try to soon.  I have been getting ready for our Junior League Banquet this Thursday and am running in circles!!!
