4 days and counting...

Happy belated Mother's Day to all the moms out there! I fully intended to write a post about my sweet mother but instead I spent the weekend with her, doing what I consider chores but these chores (home improvement projects) are what makes Jan, well Jan. It was an adventure getting home, I had a tire blow out in the middle of MS that left me stranded on I-55 for two hours. After checking Facebook 8 zillion times, praying that an 18-wheeler didn't take out my little Lincoln or that the tattoo-covered repairman didn't bash my head in with his giant mallet tool, and $324 dollars later, I was back jamming to the Ipod with the cruise set. Lessons learned: An AAA membership is a wise investment and I shouldn't judge someone by their appearance. Bob, as his nametag said, pretty much rescued me and made my trip home possible...not to mention his courage for squatting beside the car with other vehicles zooming past. Anyways, what's a journey home without some excitment right?

With 3 amazing mothers

Only 4 more days left in the 'burg and I don't think the reality has quite set in. It probably won't until Saturday when the Uhaul is all loaded up and we're saying goodbye. So, in honor of our last week here, we are spending it with all of our friends and eating (our favorite thing to do) at our favorite local places. Last night, we ate at Crescent City Grill with a few of my fellow classmates. It was a fun, fun time and mudbugs are in season so hello Louisiana party in my mouth!

Tonight, one of our favorite couples are having us over for dinner. We met Robert and Amanda when our young couples bible study group formed last summer. They are absolutely adorable and super hospitable. I looking forward to tonight, Robert is the grill master and the conversation is endless. I wish Amanda would start a blog...she is a hoot and would be oh so entertaining to read (theres my subtle hint, Amanda). We will surely miss these two, but I'm not too sad, they are always up for a roadtrip and good times.

Tomorrow, we are having a date night. We are planning to dine at Walnut Circle Grill. This is the sorta place you go for a celebration and tomorrow we are gonna celebrate the next chapter in our life. Also, late tomorrow night Ben's parents will be arriving to help us pack and tie any loose ends before we move. I've said it before and I'll say it again, we are both blessed with best families in the world. Having them around will be super helpful!
Happy Monday Y'all!
