Weekend Away

I had an Awesome weekend!

Got to spend it with my hubby at Callaway Gardens. He was there for a business meeting, and when it ended I was able to join him for a couple days. We stayed in the lodge, which is decorated in "luxury-rustic" style! Unfortunately, it was dreary and rainy all weekend, but each time we entered the lodge, this fire drew me like a magnet, with its comforting warmth and coziness.

On Sunday afternoon, we drove up to LaGrange and rescued Taylor from the perils of cafeteria food, and filled him up with a big, juicy steak! :) That brought a smile to his poor, famished face! :D

This is Alan and me -- "newlyweds" of nearly 27 years -- enjoying our time together!

We both ordered the same entree -- grilled salmon, steamed veggies, and a sweet potato! It was so yummy! Definitely one of my favorite restaurant meals!

Then, we took Tay back to college. He wanted us to see how nice his dorm room looked after he cleaned it following the departure of his roommate. I'm guessing he must have hired a bulldozer to clear it, because it was nothing short of an extreme makeover! (Good Job Tay!)

We were so impressed that we even stayed and watched the Minnesota/Dallas game right there in Taylor's dorm room! :) it was an exciting game, and Brett Farve was nothing short of amazing!

We left this morning after breakfast, stopped in Columbus to take advantage of a few retail establishments that we don't have here, and then returned to our home base, where we immediately scheduled the customary debriefing, and were relieved to discover that there were no casualties while we were gone. Now it is back to business as usual!

Looks like a lovely place for a romantic (ahem, sorry, business) getaway.

Sounds lovely! Does your big son sleep on that little-bitty bed? Those are either small beds or your son is a big man! LOL!

Well, both are true! The beds are too small, and his legs hang off the end! But my son is Ginormous too!! He is 6'8" and around 330 pounds!!!! Now you know why they recruited him to play football there! :)

We loved Callaway when we went there in the summer. The chapel was beautiful! Glad you were able to get away :)
