Finally Friday

Hubby and I are away this weekend.

SANS kids!

That is without kids. Nada kids. Not here with us.

This is actually our second weekend away without them in a month! While I am looking forward to my time alone with hubby, I do miss them.

I left very early this morning before they woke and I just stared down at the little sleeping angels. I wanted to kiss them but I feared they would wake. Bubby is such a light sleeper. I think that boy can smell me coming down the hall.

So, here we are. Memphis, TN. Home to Graceland and Beale Street. We might even take some time to go see those sights. We're here on business, so who knows how much time we will actually have for that.

I used to go on these business trips all the time until the kids came. We traveled quite a bit and it was always so fun to get away to a different city with him. Now that the kids are getting older I am hoping I can start going occasionally again.

Some fun highlights from this week:

I so appreciate some fun bloggy awards and encouragement that many of you have sent my way! It is amazing how people I do not even know reach out to me to just say they are thinking of me or praying for me. That. Is. Very. Cool. Thank you.

I am going to get them posted next week. I didn't bring my laptop and the hotel is charging me to be online. And it is sooooo slloooowww.

Sarah Palin: I don't talk politics too much here, so I am not looking for any kind of debate, but I like this lady. I actually for the first time in many years enjoyed watching a Republican National Convention.

Bubby starting preschool: He was so excited to get back to school. He loves his teachers and is thrilled they are having time on the playground first thing in the morning. He only wishes they could just stay out there all day. Who needs to learn anything for Kindergarten? It's just abc's, right?

So, anyway - I will be back next week. Have a great weekend!

I will let you know if I see Elvis.

I lived in Memphis several years and never made it to Graceland. Let us know how you like it if you go.
