Birthday getaway....

Friday, Rich and went to Greenwood, MS for the night. We got a couples massage at 3~it was awesome! We then checked in our room at the Alluvian. It was beautiful. Loved, loved it! We got dressed and went across the street to the Viking Cooking School. We were scheduled for a DATE NIGHT hands on class from 6-9. Let me give you the menu: Lobster Bisque with Brandy Cream, Pancetta-Wrapped Filet Mignon stuffed with Spinach and Boursin Cheese, Oven-Roasted Truffled Frites(fries), Baby Greens with Candied Pine Nuts, and White Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake...YUMMY! We were divided into teams and each team had to cook their own meal. Our chef, Mary Helen demonstrated how to do some things and gave us some great cooking tips. We then divided up and started cooking. Finally, around 850, we at down to eat. It was sooo worth the wait. It really was delicious. We met some really nice and fun people! We hope to cook this meal sometime soon!!! and we hope to go back and learn more! It was a wonderful getaway and MUCH needed!!!

Hope Brady from Days of Our Lives....

Kelly and I went to Mistletoe Thursday night. We were just shopping and I looked up and saw Hope Brady. I almost passed out. I am a huge Days fan and really could not believe that she was there. Like I have watched this show since I was little. She was soooo sweet and BEAUTIFUL. I asked her, "Where is Bo?" just kidding. Her accent was totally different than I imagined. But, she was just as sweet as I had imagined! I really, really could barely speak. She was so sweet to let me take a picture with her...(i did NOT have my camera, only cellphone) Got a picture and bought a piece of her jewelry. It was a bracelet that said, "Hope." love it! me and my new Best Friend, Hope!!!!!
