This blog is basically just a collection of my "random thoughts". I must warn you, though. I have been told that "I write like I talk", so if you don't understand what you are reading... chances are, if you met me... I wouldn't make much sense to you! Feel free to comment if you care to. Or not. I'm good either way!

Wonderful Anniversary Weekend

Hubby and I had a wonderful weekend celebrating our 25th at Stone Mountain Park. I have been trying to think of a way to blog about our trip without making it boring. I hope that I succeed in doing that! If not... forgive me, please.

FRIDAY -- Leave home at 9:00am.... Arrive in Stone Mountain at 11:00am....Drive past my high school...Stone Mountain High... See lots of trailers!... Drive past Hubby's old workplace.... Drive through apartments where we first met.... Notice name change.... Parking lot seems smaller.... Trees are gone.... Dumpster is gone.... Stopped at Post Office to get a stamp.... Drove thru little town of Stone Mountain... Empty..... Sad.... Improvements to be made sign.... Yay!.... Drove thru old neighborhood.... House looked good.... Yard didn't.... Drove by the neighborhood pool.... Noticed "cover" over it..... Wondered about it..... Stopped for lunch at "Joe's Crab Shack"..... Noticed bad smell..... Ate outside on the patio.... Had to wear a "bib".... Wasn't too happy about it.... Food was pretty good....Crab legs, shrimp, sausage, corn & beer.... Called hotel.... Room wasn't ready.... Drove to Park anyway.... Got in free!.... Looked forward to seeing the "Memorial Lawn" where we got married.... Was disappointed to see that they were "renovating" it..... Drove over "covered bridge" to the island.... Walked around the island.... Hubby proposed, again!... I said "Yes!".... Got a beautiful new ring!....I love it!!.... He was nervous..... So sweet!.... Called hotel again..... Room still isn't ready.... Drove around the Park some more.... Drove to hotel..... Finally checked in.

"Lake View" room with a balcony.... Comfy bed.... Big, flat-screen TV.... Time for my gift to Hubby.... A book about our 25 years together.... He cried and loved it.... Yay!.... Walked around hotel.... Found the Spa.... Found the indoor & outdoor pools & hot tubs....  Found the restaurant.... Decided to eat dinner there later.... "All-You-Can-Eat Seafood & Prime Rib Buffet"!.... Changed into swim suits.... Tried out the indoor hot tub.... Lounged by the outdoor pool.... In the sun.... Listened to some fun music.... Cooled off in the pool.... Back to room.... changed for dinner..... Ate dinner at 7:00pm.... With the "Tag People"..... Food was excellent..... Crab legs, shrimp, prime rib..... Dessert.... Ate too much!.... Wanted to sit by a firepit outside.... None were available.... Went back to room.... Called it a night.

SATURDAY -- Woke up early, of course.... Watched approaching nasty weather on weather channel.... Breakfast at 7:30am..... HUGE breakfast buffett!!!.... French Toast, eggs, sausage, yogurt & fruit.... YUM!!... Spa at 10:00.... Frustrated because Spa messed up our appointments.... It all worked out, tho.... Hubby got a "Therapeutic" massage.... I got a facial.... Hubby liked his.... I loved mine!!.... Weather was nasty..... Decided to go see a movie.... Drove to the Mall of Georgia.... Thought we were seeing Kenny Chesney in 3D at the IMAX theatre..... Turned out to be a regular theatre.... Kenny was AWESOME!!!!.... Felt like a real concert!!.... Hubby thought it was better than a real concert!!.... Drove to "The Corner Pub" in Decatur, GA.... Got to see Luke, our long-time friend.... Ate Gumbo at the "Gumbo Cook-off" that they were having.... Had a few beers.... Loved the cool bar!.... Great seeing Luke!.... Drove back to hotel..... Too rainy for the Laser Show.... Bummed.... Checked out the hotel "lounge".... Not so nice.... Called it a night.

SUNDAY -- Woke up early, again!.... Breakfast at 7:30.... Waffles, omelet, & yogurt parfait..... YUM!!..... Took a walk.... Spa at 10:00.... Couples massage...... GREAT! ..... Time to go home.... Bummed..... Had a wonderful time!
