I'm well rested after traveling a little more than 10 hours in a car from Florissant, Missouri to reach Pennington, Alabama. But I'm thankful that my husband, Eddie, did all the driving. I offered, but apparently I drive like Miss Daisy, and he wanted to "get there" :) I get to do some driving on the way back. For now, I'm spending my morning watching my mother-in-law cook chicken and dressing (instead of turkey and dressing) at Eddie's request. I won't complain though. After all, I like chicken, and I know I'll be turkeyed out before the end of the year. This breaks up the monotony. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Dorian, Lori, Karen and Pam (l-r) on a lunch break between sessions
St. Louis was a lot more fun for me this weekend. I had a visit from some friends from Memphis. Karen (she was one of my bridesmaids three months ago), Lori and Pam came up for the Joyce Meyer Love Life Women's Conference. I took a couple of days off of work to hang out with them and attend the conference. It was nice to spend several days with Karen minus wedding stress :) I had the best time even though I was fighting with my allergies most of the time. It was three days well spent. I got to catch up with the ladies and we got to worship together while learning about how our attitudes affect our thoughts and how our thoughts affect our moods. The take home message for me was to have an attitude like a dog instead of a cat. (I can explain later in another post, but my weekend guests know what I'm talking about.) I can't wait until next year. We are already planning to attend the next conference in September, 2011, and we're hoping to get some other friends to come with us. Thanks for visiting ladies!

Enjoying frozen fruit kabobs
Our favorite thing about being on the resort was just hanging out-not knowing what time it was and not caring! We checked e-mail very little and never turned our cell phones on. This was peace! We basically ate and did what we wanted. There is definitely no shortage of food at this place, so we had to sample everything! Well, I had to anyway. One place that had ambiance and pretty decor was a Japanese restaurant called Lychee. Eddie was kind of skeptical about going here, because he likes his food pretty basic, but he ended up liking his meal much more than I liked mine.

Yesterday was V-Day. As you read in my previous post, we were planning to have a nice dinner at The Melting Pot. We ended up at PF Chang's in the evening, but earlier events of the day included breakfast at Cracker Barrel, a trip to the Missouri Botanical Garden, and a marriage proposal. Yes...a proposal! I had no idea it would happen today, but I found out later that it had been planned weeks before, and everyone seemed to know about it but me-my sister, my mom and dad, Eddie's frat brother, Harrell (he introduced us) and his wife Kita, and Eddie's mom and siblings. I was truly shocked but excited. After Eddie, with a huge grin on his face, said "Will you marry me?!," I stopped shaking long enough to whisper "yes". My now fiance, Eddie Doss, and I are pictured above. A couple at the the garden was nice enough to take this photo after the moment happened. After strolling around the garden for about 20 minutes, he picked this spot in front of the waterfall to pop the question. I will always remember this day. I was asked for my hand in marriage on February 14th, 2009, Valentine's Day, in front of the waterfall at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Please wish us goodness, happiness and peace as we take this journey together.

Valentine's Day is coming soon. Can you believe I'm thinking about this? I starting thinking about it when Eddie told me this evening out of nowhere that "Valentine's Day is on a Saturday this year". This led to a conversation about what we'll do. Dinner and a movie it is. To my amazement, we have decided on The Melting Pot. Why am I amazed? I love to try new restaurants and food in general. My boyfriend, on the other hand, is a tad picky. He also has stopped eating beef and pork recently. He'll eat fish but no shrimp, crab, or lobster for him! Eddie is also not a fan of "pretty food." So, I am happy that he's stepping out and doing something different with me. Reservations will be made this weekend. I'm excited!

I feel so bad that I have not blogged since November. Has life been that busy for me? Not really. It's not that hard to sit down for 5-10 minutes and write some thoughts down. It just hasn't been a priority. I must be pretty bored, because I started my vacation on Christmas Eve. I'm not even half way through it, and I'm blogging. I'll go back to work on January 5th, so I have a good amount of time to sleep in, read, shop, hang out with my retired parents, do laundry...stuff that I do not have much time to do when I'm working. So, I'm really thankful for this time I have off. Luckily, the policy at the company I work for is to use it or lose it [vacation] :)
