Friday With Mother

If it's Friday - I am in Fort Worth with my mother!
I drove straight there from Dallas this morning to pick her up at the beauty salon.

I asked her where she wanted to go for lunch.....
after some going back and forth where she asked ME where I wanted to go.....
she finally put her hands to her mouth like she was drinking and I knew she wanted to go to IHOP!

Perfect! We had a nice visit while she ate pancakes and I had crepes.
I only ate two so Mother could take one home for later.

Next stop? Big Lots!
Mother enjoys a little shopping.....
Nothing major. Cotton balls, band aids, house shoes....
Still, she loves to get to shop for herself.

I did some shopping of my own!
Halloween candy! Expensive but worth it! All our little neighbors love to come to our house.
We sit on our porch all dressed up with the candles and torches burning while we sip our wine from goblin goblets. Louis Dean takes pics of the trick or treaters to give them later!

I scored with these delicious treats for US!!!

After taking Mother home I stopped at McCart Thrift Store and found a few treasures.
I am going to love reading that book 'You Don't Look Like a Grandmother.'

When I got home this afternoon I found this book in the mail!
Our new read aloud book!!
We are Duck Dynasty fans!!!

While LD went off to do errands I cleaned house!

The kitchen floor is 2/3 of the way done.
The rest will wait for a week or so.

We have things to do and places to GO!!!
In our CAMPER!! We went out this afternoon and prepared it to travel!

The slide OUT room slid IN!!!
That's a GOOD thing!!

This pic is blurry but Louis Dean was SO excited!!! He hooked the truck up to the camper the very first try!!


We are loaded and ready to go!!
While I don't want to LIVE in the camper - it is very nice to have it as a little home away from home.
We are leaving in the morning at first light heading south to LD's son's ranch.
I am so looking forward to waking up in the country!
But first we have to get there! Our alarm is set. Our bags are packed. The truck and the RV are hooked up and ready to pull out of the driveway.
It's going to be a GREAT weekend!!!

That sounds like so much fun. I have been wishing lately for a camper. It was so much fun when we camped years ago. Have a great time. The kitchen is looking really good.

Your mom is so cute! It's so sweet that you spend every Friday together. We are big Duck Dynasty fans too! I want some of their books. I've been seeing them at stores lately. Aren't they just a wonderful family? Hope you have a great weekend.

I love your "Mom and me" Fridays!
What great images of your beautiful new stove!
I am living in my own Duck Dynasty world right now.
The Camo is neatly hanging on the door to the garage that is filled with decoys, a duck sled, and netting. Mr D was building something to go into the blind today.
I watched Ben while Jason, Chrislyn and Holland participated in Trunk or Treat at church, which fell smack dab in the middle of his naptime!
Safe travels to the country, my friend!
