Doesn’t it make you want to giggle just a little bit? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Don’t worry Josh – I still love you! What else are sisters for?!

Today was a good day.

Not only did I get to see my twin brother who I haven’t seen in 3 months, but – as an added bonus – I got to hang out with my Grandma A.

My grandma rocks. Obviously.

We met her for lunch at a local seafood joint called Catfish. It was a beautiful location, right on the water and packed for lunch on a Friday.

We were quoted a 40 minute wait, but sat in 10.

The restaurant is known for their salad bar, so I kept it easy for lunch and ordered the soup and salad bar combo.

The soup was the ‘Pot Likker Soup’ and contained turnip greens, collards, black eyed peas, and ham. It was a true southern comfort cup of soup and I loved it.

Random cheese grits and cornbread.

hmmm… I think I prefer my fish boneless. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Each meal came with a signature cinnamon bun and hush puppy for dessert. I had half of each.

Lunch was fab, but the rest of the afternoon was rush, rush, rush!

My siblings and I are currently on the road on our way to Augusta!

Look out Georgia, here we come!!!!!

The First Son Has Returned

September 23, 2011

It feels good to be home. I slept in, leisurely watched Wednesday’s America’s Next Top Model (no surprises who went home this week), and ate a delicious breakfast prepared by Dad. Why did I want to become a grown up and move away again?! Everyone took the day off in honor of my brother Josh more ยป
