I can do anything...

There are days when things just don't seem to be going our way. We feel as if nothing is going our way. Sometimes, in the midst of wedding planning and sale seasons, I, too, feel that way. Then I saw this video....

To all my followers... we can do anything! we can like everything!

Have a great weekend!

My southern mansion...

I realize that I have been incredibly awful with my blog posting lately. Things have been extremely busy here the last little bit, and for some reason I haven't been in the mood to blog. Though - I have had things to talk about.

The first weekend in May, every year (no, not the Derby) is the Cattlemen's Choice sale in Colbert, Georgia. I have been going down there for years for the sale. And every year, we pass by this old, dilabated home that you can tell has a lot of potential. Mom and I always dreamed of what we could do with it.

A few years ago while I was interning in Kansas City with the Hereford Association, mom called to tell me that it had finally been remodeled. She sent me a picture on my phone, and man was it beautiful.

I took Drew and tried to convince him to buy it for me when we were down there this past month, but no go. :( I always love to drive by it and picture myself living in it. So for now... all we can do is dream, but I thought I'd share it with you all. Go ahead and drool.....

Be our Guest...

First off, I apologize for the recent abstenece from the world of blogging. Life has sure been busy with cow sales, sheep sales, and oh yeah,that little thing called a wedding around the corner.

Last night though, Drew and I took a little time for a date night and headed to the Lexington Opera House for the final performance of Disney's Beauty and the Beast. I love musicals. There is something about the costumes, the singing, and dancing that can transform you into a whole different world. This was my 5th musical that I have seen, but it was Drew's first.

It was FANTASTIC! The music was wonderful and the special effects for a smaller, touring Broadway production were extradionary. Of course, my favorite number was "Be our Guest" complete with dancing forks, salt and pepper shakers, and plates. It made you want to jump right out of your seat. One of Drew's favorite numbers was "Gaston" in the tavern which they did a really cool number with clanging beer mugs - almost like a step show.

We took this as a date night, but the crowd was quite diverse. I believe a lot of ladies got it for Mother's Day. There were families, little boys, husbands, and of course, the little ladies dressed up as Belle.

They will be announcing the new line up of Broadway productions coming to Lexington at the end of May, so we are excited to see what is coming to town. Drew now has the theatre bug. He said he was surprised at how much he actually liked it. :)
