Trey took him and picked him up at the groomer’s while I was at work one Friday when he was in town. This was probably the best thing I don’t think I could have done it. I walked in the house after work and did not recognize my sweet boy. I know this might sound a bit dramatic over a haircut but he looked so different. It was like he aged 10 years in one day. Winston loves his new summer cut and it is much easier at bath time now. Plus now I can actually see his sweet face.
The Saturday before last, Trey and I met Anna at Chewacla State Park. I didn’t get too many pictures before I overheated and got sick. I’ll spare you the details so not much else to say about this.
To start off, I ordered a house made white sangria which was very good.
For dinner Trey ordered the Beef Carpaccio – thin sliced filet mignon, horseradish aioli, arugula, grada padano and fried capers.
I ordered the Grouper Burger – red grouper, havarti dill cheese, local bibb lettuce on a sweet bun with parmesan fries. The burger was delicious and huge. I gave half of it to Trey to save room for dessert.
One of Trey’s classmates was playing with his band at Maestro 2300. Which was the reason we went in the first place.
For dessert I ordered the blackberry cobbler with vanilla bean gelato. It was not as good as I was hoping. It was so tart my tongue hurt.
Carrie got the chocolate pots de creme. I had a bite of hers and immediately wished I had ordered it instead. It was cool, creamy chocolate goodness.
This is my Mom’s parents, Pawpaw and Granny. I was a year old when Pawpaw died but I have a ton of wonderful memories spent with Granny.
These are Pawpaw’s siblings.
In this picture are my great aunts, great uncles, aunt, cousins and second cousins.
Aunt Julie, Mom, Great Uncle Bobby, Great Aunt Sarah and me.

My Mom’s Dad’s side of the family had a reunion last month. Trey walked in the door and asked how many people they were expecting and when they said 90 he about fell out. If there is one thing I have a lot of it is family. This reunion was only 1/4 of my family. It was so fun to hear family stories and get to put faces with names I have heard in the past. I have two more family get togethers coming up before the end of the year.
I cannot believe September is already here. I know everyone says time is flying but really now just slow down a little. It seems like just yesterday we were ringing in 2014. September is my favorite month out of the year and coincidentally my birthday month. Not to jinx myself but I need this month to be a good one. So September, please be sweet to me.
