The best thing in North Carolina??????

While in NC Girlville and I went to the store to get bread for dinner. She stopped by the sauces and picked this one out for me to bring home. Being a northern girl I had no idea what vinegar based BBQ sauce was. Heck, we used that think stuff. ya know?

So last Sunday I shredded chicken and added some sauce. P not used to the consistency said to add I did. I then served the chicken on deli rolls. It was hot...yes, it was hot. It does say hot on the label, it was. P added more, his eyes watered, he drank water and LOVED IT. I did like it too, but I might put a little less on mine next time....

But P? He is already worried about the bottle running out. He saw there is a website, and was relieved. Girlville promises her mom's recipe. Maybe I'll make him up a batch for Christmas? I mean he is using it on everything....his shredded pork, his chicken, his chili...OMG, did I just see him put it in his coffee????????????

P's birthday

We dropped C off at P's parents house for their trip to Vegas. We had a great dinner and couldn't ask for nicer people to love our daughter too! These two are very silly! Not sure how many people turning 21 go to Vegas?????? We have received at least 4 phone calls per day from C. She says cool there, but too smokey and fake. She is taking lots of photos for blogging!

The Great Bloggy Meetup - Post 3

Sunday after leaving the hotel C and I went back to Girlville's for the rest of our visit. We hung around a bit and then went to 3 houses from the Parade of Homes. The first house we visited was right in Girlville's "hood". Unfortunately it was sold, so we could not purchase it at 1.6 million. Next we drove to two other houses in the area of Girlville's parents. It's fun to see what's out there that we will never live in. Honestly, some of these houses had 5 bathrooms! A maid would be a must!

After we went back and dined on left over pizza from dinner and strawberries. We sat on Girlville's deck and had a lot of laughs. The Husband's mother stopped over for a visit. I think to see if C and I were as beautiful as we look in our photos! LOL

After C took one of her famous "26 minute" naps and Girlville and I chatted while she prepared Pumpkin Pasta for dinner. We ate outside on the deck again and it was wonderful. Good food, good friends! After dinner The Husband made a fire in their Chiminea and we roasted marshmellows! Oh, and C saw a HUGE bug...HUGE....that served as our entertainment for the rest of the evening. After cleaning up from dinner (did I help???) we sat a while longer and talked and talked and talked...then decided we were all exhausted! We could have each had our own nice room, but C did not want to sleep alone...could it have been visions of that BIG BUG in her head????

I woke at 6:45, but thought everyone was still asleep...which they were not. We went down at around 7:45 to find Girlville and The Husband reading the paper.....and breakfast was ready! Wow, talk about being spoiled! After breakfast The Husband left for his dentist appt. and C, Girlville and I talked some'd think we talked enough, right???? We knew we had to get on the road for our 11 hour drive, so at 10am, we decided to leave....sadly....

Do you recognize this tree from Girlville's Fur Ball photos????

Tearfull goodbyes! What great friends!!!!

Off we went..first stop to get gas....then hit route 1 for the first part of our journey...not sure we made it out of North Carolina before this happened.....

Girlville send bread!!!!!

The Great Bloggy Meetup - Post 2

Saturday night dinner started out with bread and dipping oil.....

and talking....
more talking, and eatting.....

RPM for you...the salad....this was the small! Mine had shrimp, C got the chicken....

C and I shared the pizza. Ours was the four cheese...very yummy!

AM has a beer?????? The group....

After dinner we went back to the hotel and Girlville opened a box that had been delivered to her prior to our arrival. Ragus had made us all the cute candy boxes. Swampgirl made us all the paper mache pug ornaments..Kristie and 30 Something got the cat version, and Girlville gave us all soap that was handmade in Raleigh. She made the great tags, which will be good in my scrapbook!

Sunday morning we all went down to breakfast and after had a group photo outside. Followed by more photos and then sadly, goodbyes.....

Isn't he the sweetest????

Courtney and I were lucky to be staying another day with Girlville and her husband......

The end of bloggy meetup tomarrow.....
