Home again home again jiggity jog....

We are back from our trip to Baton Rouge! It was a lovely time, although way, way, way too short! I flew in on Friday to pick up Marissa, who had been staying with her beloved Aunt Debbie for the past 2 weeks. Usually she stays 3 weeks during the summer, but she cut her trip short this time to be back for Miss Amanda's wedding this week. :) More posts on that after the big event....I promise!

SO I flew in to Baton Rouge and my sister picked me up at the airport. We don't get to see each other very often, and this weekend worked out well because her daughters had gone to stay at the beach in Gulf Shores and her husband was on night shift, so we got to spend time "just us girls". It was nice! I don't know when we have gotten to do that last! We went shopping Friday night, and went to eat at Jason's Deli where I happily munched a big plate of ditch weeds with all the good toppings. (I love that place)We shopped more after dinner, and then headed home. Saturday we got up, scarfed down a banana and hit the mall. I scored a great pair of summer shoes for me, and we finally found Marissa shoes for the wedding. Her foot is very narrow at the heel and hard to fit, so this was not an easy challenge!!!! However, we triumphed and celebrated with lunch at this little place that I cannot for the life of me remember the name of! It was something-junior. The pizza was truly excellent and we shopped on......finding goodies for my nieces and a couple of scrapbook treasures for me. We decided to eat dinner at Mike Anderson's Seafood, which is a New Orleans tradition. My sister and I happily crabbed some crawfish.......

Those shrimp were the biggest I have ever seen!!!!!

After dinner we decided to be wickedly bad and headed over to Copeland's Cheesecake Bistro and sinned.....in a big, bad way!!!!!

All too soon, our time came to an end adn Marissa headed back home at 5:30 SUnday morning. We flew ina dn went out to see Jamie on the boat. He had not seen his baby girl in 3 weeks!!!!! Marissa and I came home, and fell into bed. After a nap we went to Debbie's house for dinner and a swim. Brenda and Joe, Debbie, Jenn, Marissa and I played and splashed until after 10:00 last night! WHEW!
Tonight we are heading to the wedding rehearsal, and then dinner at a very special place....check back tomorrow for details!!!!

I miss you already Sis, and I agree the weekend was too short. We had some good meals, good fun and better company. I love you and hope you enjoy the dinner tonight and the wedding goes well. Take care - did Jamie enjoy the Gumbo or are you saving that for a coming home treat?
