Fabulous Fall Weekend

 So often I get caught up in the busyness of this world; I am really trying to make it a point to slow down and take in each gift HE has given me. Friday I took off from work, I kicked off my day with Taylor, Katie and Anna Kate at the Mainstreet sale in Washington. After I whirled around the sale grabbing some Christmas goods I headed to a Veteran's Day celebration in Snow Hill where my dad and brother both participated in the ceremony. It was very special to stop and honor the men and women who defend our freedom in years past and today. My Daddy did his mayoral duty and welcomed the crowd and dignitaries, then he handed the ceremony to Zack who briefly discussed his service and did the invocation. It was truly a time to reflect on the service and sacrifice of so many.

 Papa and Zack a generation of veterans. 

One proud Papa!!
Friday evening we joined some friends and headed to a SoCo in Black Creek, which is right outside of Wilson for dinner. The people that own the SoCo remodeled an farm house and in the back they have a restaurant where they do dinner for groups of 8 or more each evening. It was a 4 course dinner and let me just tell you it was absolutely delicious. 
If you are looking for a neat experience you should visit SoCo!

 Roasted carrot soup and it was my favorite part of the meal. 

Yesterday my Mom came over and we went Christmas shopping. I am going to Las Vegas the first weekend in December and I have set a goal to have all my gifts bought and wrapped before I board the plane. So far I am very proud to say that I have made a huge dent and everything that has been bought is wrapped. My mom is crazy for those of you that do not know and yesterday she did not fail me I laughed so hard at that woman!!

As for today we had a great service at church, in Sunday school we started a study on HIS SPIRIT. I am super excited for this study. I hope that you and your family have enjoyed this weekend too!!
