3 Day Weekend

This past weekend Thad and I road tripped to the Beach to see Mark. We left early Sunday morning and instead of the 4.5 hours it takes to get to Navarre, FL it took us seven. We decided to stop where ever we wanted which ended up being a stop at a fruit stand, lunch in Prattville, a visit to a Market in Montgomery and even stopped off at Priesters Pecans.

We finally arrived at Mark's house that evening and fell in love with his nice place. Mark took us around town and then took us to Pensacola for dinner. All week the weatherman had predicted that we would have a rainy Memorial Day, instead it was perfect weather and we were able to spend Monday at the Beach. It was a great little getaway minus Thad's (and Mark's) horrible sunburns. We will miss Mark when he leaves for North Carolina but he still will not be too far away!

Sister Sister Face to Face

It is a Firday night and Thad is at a Stake Youngmen's Campout and I am bored. I told Thad that him being gone meant I was going out clubbing and he seemed to be just fine with it. However we all I know I wouldn't ever do such a thing and am all talk and so instead I was looking at my sister's blog and for anyone who doesn't know she is my BFF in the whole world and probably knows me better than anybody on this planet. I saw this pic, taken in the Grand Caymen, pre-mission for me and post mission for Brooke. Man those Nelson sistas are smokin' hot. I wish Brookie and I could hang out tonight while having Max and Maddie climbing all over us, eating Mike-N- Ikes. Love ya sis.

"Cheese Wit"

Last week Thad traveled to Pennsylvania for business and one of his stops was Philadelphia. I was so jealous that he got to go and experience Philly. Living in DC for several years, I had always wanted to make it to Philly and never was able to but I knew that if I ever got there I needed to have a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich at Pat's King of Steaks. Much to my delight, Thad was able to make it to Pat's and partake of some Steak and Cheese Whiz.

Just a little background, Pat's is located in South Philadelphia, has been around since 1930 and is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and is home to the Steak and Cheesesteak Sandwiches. Also when ordering a Cheesesteak you say "I want a cheese wit", meaning a Philly Cheesesteak.......just some urban lingo Thad taught me.

Jumping on the Family Blog band wagon.....Yee ha!

Welcome to the Forester blog. My sister always complains that I do not blog enough and so I have set out to become a better blogger, so here I go sister. I often feel like because we do not have kids that I have nothing to report but I have concluded that this simply is not true.

Last week, we were blessed to have some dear friends from DC visit (love you ladies)us, Katie, Destiny and new residence to the South, Nikki and David . It was so great to have them see our home and where we live. They had never been to the South so we made sure to give them a true southern experience. They received the one of a kind tour of the University Campus from Thad (which I have heard over eight times) and then we tried to take them to our fav place, the old abandoned Bryce Hospital, Thad and I love going out there which is so funny. I also, took the ladies to one of my favorite streets in Northport, full of adorable shops. One of the shops I took them to in downtown Northport, where I tell Thad I want one of everything is called Gracefully Done if you are ever in town. We had the lunch special at Cafe Venice and ate at the famous and my favorite......Dreamland. I think I even saw Katie Lund eat the BBQ nachos.

It was a great visit and I was so happy to have my officemate and spouse come visit us. We love you guys!
