I'm Back!

Good Morning all,
I sure did miss you all. We had a wonderful trip to Warrenton Virginia this weekend. Robbie's (DH) oldest sister celebrated her 50th B-day this past weekend. We seen alot of family members we haven't seen in awhile and plus going back "home" was nice. Warrenton is in Northern Virginia near D.C. I was born and raised there in a city called Manassas. Some of you may know it as where the Battle of Bull Run was. I had my first two sons there and when I was pregnant with our 3rd son "Beau" was when we moved from there. I am going to share a few pics with all of you. And by the way...I am feeling so much better. Thanks to all!!

Robbie and I love to watch "Diners Drive Ins and Dives" on the food network channel. And we had seen this place featured on there in Charlotte N.C

It is called the Bar B Q King. So we stopped off by there and ordered some of their BBQ chicken.

It was so good!! Robbie said that their coleslaw was probably the best he had tasted. I don't like coleslaw so I gave him mine.

Here are a few other pics of the BBQ King-

We then headed on to Virginia. It was an 8 hour trip. But Robbie and I love to talk so we kept the conversation going.

Here are a couple of pics of Virginia I took. I was really surprised that they were not in peak season yet for the leaves turning.

This is a pic of Robbie and 2 of his sisters-Angela is on the left and the B-day girl Wanda is in the center.He has another sister Bonnie but, she was not able to make it.

We are all going to try to plan a trip for the whole family in Bald Head Island NC next year sometime. I am looking forward to it!

I missed each and every one of you this past week! I seen where Char was having a Giveaway. So you know me... I'll post 'em! LOL! Everyone needs to go over and visit Char at The Pickled Pepper Patch -She is having a giveaway celebrating her daughters 21st B-day! Plus if you have not been to her site ..YOU ARE MISSING OUT!! She gives us all so many wonderful ideas. She is amazing!!

Well I hope everyone has a Blessed day!
