I suppose my goal of blogging three times a week is shot... But I do have lots to report!
(Patricia, Mable, Zack, Grandma & Dad)
As a surprise Dad sent her 90 red roses for her birthday! I presented her with a "china doll" plant, and sent her the pink gladiola arrangement in the back, Grandma loves flowers! I know I've said it numerous times here on the blog, but I love my Grandma dearly, we seem to understand one another and get into all kinds of trouble on our Wednesday beauty shop trips. Shes got a lot of spunk left in her and love every minuet of our time and treasures we share!
(Michelle, Me & Patricia)Speaking of Wednesday trips, this Wednesday Patricia and I headed out on a day trip to Denton/Decatur Texas for some thrifting and dinner with good friend Michelle! Michelle is busy getting things ready for her July wedding later this year, so Patricia and I hit up Denton for some goodies.
Lots of goodies! I found a Pink Pyrex 213 loaf pan, Patricia scored this 933 Orange long pan with a carrier for $11.00 (Our second piece of Orange "Halloween" Pyrex!) I also picked up a matching "Golden Foliage" Libbey glass that matches our set (I plan to keep swizzle sticks in it.) Lastly we found the sheet music for "On A Slow Boat to China" for $1.00 after our wallets were thrifted out we headed back to Decatur to meet up with Michelle for dinner at one of our favorite spots-
You can make ANY joke you want about this place being overly kitschy, but let me tell you- this place has some of the best food out there.
Being a Texan, and a Texan who lives mostly in the "country" (were not exactly your Ponderosa Ranch) I can tell you all about Chicken Fried Steak. Now before you start your "Duke Boy's Yee-Hawing" I can honestly say that this is the BEST DAMN Chicken Fried Steak in North Texas! If you're ever passing through I highly recommend stopping in and treating yourself to this, or a burger or just about anything on their menu, even now as I type my mouth starts to water.
Mmmmmm Lunch and Dinner!
