Happy 4th of July!!

I hope all my blogging friends are having a great 4th of July. Both hubby and I had today off, making it a three day weekend for us. And boy, have we been busy all three days!! We took a day trip on Saturday to Mt. Airy, NC where we spent a fun filled morning shopping, eating, and learning about all things related to Andy Griffith. For those who don't know, Mt. Airy is the town that the fictional town of Mayberry was fashioned after on The Andy Griffith Show. This is a quaint little town with lots of unique shops, including Floyd's Barber Shop, Opie's Candy Store, and Snappy's Lunch Counter, where we ate one of their world famous pork chop sandwiches. Otis, the town drunk, even made an appearance at Snappy's while we were there! We went with two of my sisters-in-law and one of my brothers-in-law. After lunch, hubby and I bid the rest of our small group good-bye and we traveled on down to the Greensboro area where we visited a nice farmer's market where hubby bought me the most beautiful clematis!

Then we drove on into High Point and Thomasville looking for homes. Yep, that's right!! I said homes. There is a very good possibility that we will be moving to NC in the near future. We are waiting to hear about a potential job opportunity for the hubby before we know for sure. I have lived in that area previously and am very excited about this new venture. I'll keep you posted.

Yesterday was filled with household chores and grocery shopping since I didn't get a chance to get that stuff done on Saturday. Then, last night was our town's annual 4th of July party. We enjoyed an outdoor concert by a marvelous Motown band, some good food and an awesome fireworks display.

Today, hubby treated me to a trip to Hobby Lobby. I say "treat" because the nearest store to us is about an hour away. So I don't get to go very often. He bought me this handsome guy:

Isn't he just gorgeous??? I have him just sitting on my kitchen counter for now, but I am going to put him in a wonderful vignette on top of my fridge soon. I also got some rub on vinyl quotes that I am going to do a little project with as well. I'll definitely share that with you when I get it completed.

So now we are home just relaxing and preparing to go back to work tomorrow. Oh well, I guess all good things must end sometime, right?? I hope everyone has enjoyed a safe and happy 4th of July! God bless America and more importantly, America, bless God!!!

Until next time. . .
