Whitney loves to play a little game with me and you would think I would have learned my lesson a long time ago. It all started back when we were renovating our house and we didn't have a kitchen. We ate out a lot and leftovers were the next day's lunch. We had gone to Surin and I had most of mine left over so I planned on having it for lunch the next day. I checked the refrigerator to see if the box was still in there before leaving for work stuff the next morning. I was thinking about my Surin for lunch all morning and couldn't wait till I got home. I opened the box and all I found was a piece of garnish! I was SOO mad!! There was nothing else to eat and I had already passed several places on the way home. He thought this was funny and so he started a game with me. So, I learned to check the box for weight before leaving the house. Then he would start putting other things in the box to add weight because I didn't always open the lid to check. His latest attack was last week. I went to Jason's Deli and had 1/2 my sandwich left over. I wrapped in a napkin so the fruit wouldn't make the bread soggy. When I went to eat the other half later, I noticed the box felt about the same and the napkin was still in place. But I was fooled again...see pictures below!!!! He is getting more sneaky!!

From April 19th to May 14th (May 17th this year!), we have a lot to celebrate. We have our Birthdays and Anniversary within those few weeks. Well, this year we also have Whitney's Medical School Graduation (YEAH!) and a baby on the way (8 weeks or less now!) so we wanted to do a little mini vacation to celebrate. I surprised Whitney with a trip to Barnsley Gardens near Rome, Ga. It was absolutely perfect in so many ways! It was about 3 hours away, quiet, and had lots of fun things to do. Barnsely Gardens doesn't have a hotel...they have cottages! All the rooms are in Cottages so you feel like you are staying in a home. It isn't like a B & B, but more like a duplex. Each cottage looks different and they all have beautiful landscaping. Many of you know, Whitney is very very into fly fishing. Well, BG has an Orvis store onsite and a special pond stocked just for fly fishing. According to Whitney it was "the season of the sunfish" (aka Bluegill Brim). I think he caught 100 fish! They have an old house that was originally built in the 1800's but a tornado nearly destroyed it. Can you imagine having a wedding reception in the old house? Wow! I don't think my pictures will do the place justice. There is also a golf course, spa, pool, tennis courts, croquet, Frisbee golf, and so much more! Oh, and they have an Orvis sporting clays course too. I am already dying to go back!
Family Cemetery - What a place to be buried!
Frisbee golf course - we didn't get to play but wish we had
