labor day weekend

Friday before memorial day my hubby called me and asked me if I could find someone to cover my hours on Saturday. I called around and found someone and when I called him back Jonathan said, "when you get home pack an overnight bag." Jonathan is king of last minute I didn't ask any questions. Although he did say..." don't ask where we are going because I don't even know." Needless to say I was very excited. When Jonathan got home, he asked me "how does going to Seymour sound?" I was like sure. Whats in Seymour. Well some of the old Tanger outlets where there. I was so happy to get away for the weekend. Jonathan and I really needed it. When we got into Seymour we ate dinner at one of our favorites...Tumbleweed. We stayed the night at an old "Knights Inn." The next morning we ate breakfast...or rather brunch at Steak-n-Shake. Then went on to the outlets. We soon found there were not that many stores. Liz Claiborne was having a big sale I got a cute black skirt that I really like for about $22. Not the greatest deal, considering I am a cheap skate....I don't like spending anything much over $10 or $15 for a skirt. After visiting all of the approx. 10 stores that were open. We headed to go get Ice cream at the Russell Stovers store. The ice cream was delicious...but looking at all that cheap chocolate was even better. The had alot of overstock chocoalte so we "invested" (LOL) in 21lbs of Chocolate bunnies for 75 cents a pound. (I will feeze it and using it in my baking for chocolate coating and even chopping it up and making chocolate chunk cookies.) Then we decided to take the back roads home. It was an incredible ride home. The countryside is beautiful and there were a few garage sales that we stopped at. (we even got a pooh plate for "Jr." Jonathan and Carolines baby. Which by the way THEIR HAVING A BOY!!!!!) Then after that we headed to "Anderson Orchard" and picked some apples. It was alot of fun. We at supper at KFC and then finally got home. We relaxed a little and unpacked and then we decided to go out for dessert at Dennys. Kind of funny about an hour after we left and headed for Shoe Carnival to get me my much needed black tennis shoes to follow our new dress code, well my phone rang and my cousine Regi and her husband wanted to meet up with Jon and I and Justin and Tasha and get ice cream. I had already ate so much I was not about to eat another thing...but was all for meeting up with them. So we did had some fun at DQ then headed to Justin and Tashas house.
Sunday night Regi and Jason ended up at our house and we had some snacks and alot of good conversation. The next morning we were all in high gear getting ready for our respective Labor day celebrations. Jon and I had even enjoyed some of our morning sitting out by our pond and reading the bible and feeding our ducks. Then we headed to My father in laws house and had a great cook out. Even had some great ribs and homemade icecream and stawberry cookie pizza. (and considering our weekend I didn't eat to much other then the cheese and cracker tray My father in law sat out before hand.) After that went back with my brother in law and the boys played on the computer setting up their "fantasy football team" we then decided we were a little hungry so we headed to Texas Roadhouse and got 2 appetizers REALLY HOT wings and cheese fries. The weekend ended with Justin and Tasha dropping by our house with a little gift for Jonathan. They had found some old style coke bottles that had Colts logos all over them. So this very "full" blogger is going to sign off. (I don't think I will eat all week...UGGGG!!!)

I don't know if you even know me but I am married to Jonathan Walden. I came across you blog through Jenny Grissom's. (They attend our church.) Anyway... I saw you went to Seymour, very close to us. Next time, come down I-65 a few miles farther to Taylorsville and we have a HUGE outlet mall there, restaurants and nice hotels! Is is 26 miles from the Seymour outlet. (Jenny lives about 5 minutes away from our outlet!) I enjoyed your blog and also the wedding pics!!!

Janella - sounds like you had a very full weekend. I LOVE those outlet malls. We have one about an hour from here but the best one I have been to so far is up at St Augustine! The wedding pictures were great and your family is still in our prayers!!

You entitled your blog "Memorial Day" weekend. Since Memorial Day occurs in May, do you not mean "Labor Day" weekend?
