On the 4th, we celebrated Hallie's bday at Molly Fontaine Lounge in the Blue Room. If you have never eaten there, you def need to try it! It is in an historic house downtown, and is decorated very retro....crazy furniture, votives on the stairs and mantels...just a neat place to eat. You order several different dishes, and they come out on little plates...a great way to sample a little bit of everything...my kind of eating! Hallie and I were born one day apart 25 years ago at Baptist East. Our grandparents had slips next to each other at Pickwick when my mom and her dad were growing up, and then our dads lived together in the frat house at Memphis. When her mom called my mom to tell her she was in labor, my mom thought she was kidding because she thought she was in labor with me! We slept next to each other in the nursery, and have been friends ever since! It was fun to celebrate another birthday together!
Luke and I met up with Saunders at the Memphis-State baseball game last week at Redbirds Stadium. We had delicious Rendezvous bbq and cheese plate! Yum yum! We had to leave a little early so I could get to work, and we saw the building above!
Although Memphis lost in the finals of the NCAA tourney, it has been so refreshing to see how the city has supported them! Memphis is not a college town by any stretch of the imagination, so I LOVE to see some school spirit where I can get it! Go Tigers Go!
I also can't close without discussing my newest love, Rock Band. Luke got this about two weeks ago, and we haven't let it rest since! I am the drummer, and he plays guitar (and we make whatever poor soul is over here sing)! I really think the Center Stripe Armadillos could make it on MTV....especially with my sweet ink and facepaint!
Thanks to everyone who called, texted, sent cards, etc! My 25th was absolutely wonderful! (The sunflowers were from sweet Elizabeth, and the other bouquet was from Saunders and Jo!! Love yall!)

April 1. This is the day upon which we are reminded of what we are on the other three hundred and sixty-four. ~Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson, 1894
Although I didn't live in Texas long, I made some really sweet friends. Becky is one of those sweet people whom I still keep in touch with. She went to our church, and I met her in a book study of For Her Eyes Only (wonderful, wonderful book), and she took me under her wing and to the zoo several times! She has twin boys, and now another on the way. Thank goodness , has started a blog. She is so sweet & funny, and I miss her!
