What I am looking for is...

A simple necklace in either white gold or sterling silver(preferably silver due to cost).
Something not to flashy but again simple.
Something with simple but meaningful words.
I am shopping for a remembrance necklace. Any websites that you might recommend? No rush, just anticipating the coming November and would like to have something new to represent it. Thanks!

Also, I have not forgotten about a post for Day 3 of our trip but life has proven incredibly crazy once again this week. No worries, I will get to it.

Day 2-The Zoo and Dinner

On the second day we traveled to the zoo and spent more time on the Riverwalk. I didn't take that many pictures at the zoo. I preferred just to look but I did get a few. Enjoy!!

The Elephant was getting a mani/pedi. Ha!

Next year's Thanksgiving dinner.

First Night!

View from the hotel room.

Huge rock water fountain in the bar area.

View from outside our hotel(The Riverwalk).

On our way to dinner, the view from a bridge.

A pretty lamp from the bar area of our hotel.

The pool on the 13th floor. It had huge windows looking out over the city.

Pretty fountain in the hotel.

A wall of wood and a nice lamp. I asked if I could take it home. They thought I was kidding. I love this wall of wood!

A fountain on the way back from dinner.

Some tile work on the Riverwalk.

I have so many pictures so I am going to try and sum them up in ten pictures for each day and put the rest on some slideshows. Stay tuned! I will work on getting more up this weekend.

I have taken 281 pictures!! They are all really good because of my new fancy camera so it will take a while to sort through them. I can tell you that this place is unreal!! It is like a whole different world. We are staying in the King Executive Suite and I have never felt so spoiled. We are having a wonderful time!! Check back in because I plan to do some picture posts most likely on Saturday after we get back.

A short bit from yesterday's conversation.

Me: Hey babe, Can you please bring down two suitcases from the attic?

Hubby: Two? We are not going to be gone that long.

Me: But I need my shoes....

Mother's Day

Today I spent my mother's day with my wonderful mother. We went to our favorite place to eat for lunch and spent the day shopping. I am pleased to report that I am down a size in my jeans!! I really enjoyed spending the day with my mom and will be happy to be living close to her again in a few months(more on that later). Thank you mom for being such as wonderful mother and friend!! I love you!!!

In truth, I don't really like Mother's Day. It is just another painful reminder that my son is not here anymore. I don't get those cutesy finger paintings or the handprints with poems around them. I fought the sadness all day. So instead of dwelling on it to much I will share a picture instead. One of my favorites...

Fellowship, Friends, Food, and Fun!!

This morning Hubby and I joined our friends, Jennifer and Michael and their little one Sarah, at church this morning. We started the morning with Sunday School taught by Michael himself. It was a great lesson on service and humility and he even used props for his lesson! He is a very good teacher. Next we went into the service where I felt very comfortable, which if you know me at all you know that I sometimes am afraid of feeling uncomfortable in other churches, but I really liked it. Here are some pictures of the church. It is a very large but beautiful building.

I couldn't help but laugh with this one! So I had to ask where we needed to park on our third visit? They assured me that we could still park there. ;)

After church we went and had some lunch at O'Charley's. The food was very good and I was able to find something I really liked. Sarah also gave me a great rendition of the "Itsy, Bisty Spider" in the parking lot. She is so much fun and adorable too! Here are the rest of the pictures!

We had a Special Instruction moment involving crayons and a box. Ha!
