Happy Birthday Papa

Wade and I spent the weekend in Paducah celebrating Papa’s (Wade’s Grandad) 90th Birthday. We arrived late, late, late Friday night and spent most of Saturday with the Burch/Broach family. Wade was in charge of pictures and I served cake, which put me in the perfect position for snacking! After the party we all returned…

My Favorite Ecuadorian Purchase

We didn’t do a lot of shopping in Ecuador. I bought an Alpaca scarf and a couple t-shirts, but my favorite discovery was cinnamon Trident gum. I love the soft gum, which I can no longer find in Cinnamon. It appears to still be popular in Ecuador. I managed to gather quite a supply before…

My Experiences, My Reviews

I normally rant about bad customer service and I plan to do that again. But first a good review. I am extremely impressed with L.L.Bean. I have ordered from them before, but never had a problem. Last month I ordered custom totes for my sister and me. My mistake, but I did order the bags…

Is It Spring Yet?

I came back from my vacation expecting a little warmer weather. Wade and I had taken bets that the snow would have melted during our week away. We saw tulips and blooms all over the South. When we landed in Milwaukee we saw fresh snow. It turns out this is the second snowiest winter in…

Wedding Day

Today was the big day – Daniel and Karen got married. Wade spent the morning running errands with Daniel. I went to breakfast at Waffle House with Liz and Adam’s parents. Then we dressed for the wedding and arrived willing to help. Instead we watched the comedy show going on in the groomsmen’s dressing room….

A Birthday Breakfast and a Costly Mistake

After an all night flight from Quito to Atlanta (arriving at 6 am), none of us were in top form. Wade and I were leaving everyone in Atlanta and renting a car for our drive to Madison, Alabama for a wedding (or so we thought). After much arguing with Delta and paying a hefty fee…

Day Nine – Traveling Back to the US

Today was a leisurely day. Our flight is not till 9 pm. We spent the day in the hotel and most of it in our room playing spades with Melissa and Chris. We switched partners various times over the week so I am not sure who ended up the overall winner. We ordered room service…

Day Eight – Travel to Quito and Dinner in a Convent

Most of today was spent traveling. We packed our bags and boarded a flight for Quito – high altitude and cold temperatures. We had quite a bit of free time and I was excited to use the gym and spend a few hours with my book. The first activity of the evening was a visit…
