Asheville Bound

I am leaving for a girls trip in a couple of days with two of my very good friends. One of whom I haven't seen in 3 years. We are heading south...to Asheville NC. Land of grits and sweet tea. Not exactly sure how this type of "diet" is going to play a part in my new Weight Watchers lifestyle, but we shall see. I do believe that grits are listed as a filling food though. Wonder about those sweet potato pancakes I saw listed at the Tupelo Honey Cafe? I must remain strong! I am certain that my southern roots will rear their ugly head and I will return to the north saying "ya'll" and "buggy". It will again take my dear friend Kate many many months to break me from the habit of calling a shopping cart a buggy. Sorry Kate, I apologize in advance. If anyone has been to the area and has any recommendations as to how three girls can find some fun or an excellent place to eat, please pass it along. Please pray for traveling mercies as I will be traveling with my friend Sandi, who just might be even more directionally challenged than myself. Happy trials Ya'll!

OK Amanda, I can read between the lines and I KNOW you are poking fun of me and "bugging" me. A shoping cart is a BUGGY. You put things in a BUGGY. You put a baby in a baby BUGGY and groceries in a grocery BUGGY. Have fun and I hope you pick up the accent triple heavy. Love you Mom
