Hang on! I'm getting caught up!

So I completely missed Go Here Thursday (again) and Frank Friday today.  Well, I guess technically I haven't missed FF if I post it before midnight.

Here's what's been going on behind the scenes to make me miss blogging on schedule:

Lucy Jane was burning the midnight oil to get this gorgeous piece done in time for this weekend's event in North GA. It's done, lovely, and fits perfectly. :)

And for those of you who have been interested in the ballgown that I did for her, here is a shot of her wearing it.  Also done, lovely and fits perfectly.  Two for two! :)

I've also been spending a lot of time in prayer and reading a fantastic book on living up to my full potential.  The book is "Life Without Limits" by Nick Vujicic.  It's amazing.  Even when you take out the whole physical limitations thing, just reading such heartfelt encouragement from such a strong believer is so very humbling and healing.  You can't read this book and not be changed inside.  I'm loving it.  Please get a copy if you can, and be encouraged to live your life to your best potential!

Here's the Marietta Diner "Go Here Thursday" that I've been promising:

Just north of Atlanta, in the beautiful city of Marietta, is a 24 hour diner.

This diner has been serving the best seafood bisque on the planet, and the most amazing every-flavor- imaginable-and-bigger-than-your-head cakes for the last 17 years.  It's been featured on Food Network's "Diners, Drive Ins and Dives".  It's marvelous, fantastic, wonderful, and a bunch of other adjectives.
Why don't I just stop and let the photos do the plugging?
Are you in the car headed up I-75 yet?

As promised, here is the recipe for the awesome seafood bisque.
Husband and I are going tomorrow night for a date to see Pirates 4 and will head on over to the diner for some of that bisque goodness.

I hate to have to do this, but I'm going to postpone the Frank Friday post til tomorrow.  I have to upload the photos off of my camera and I've got a migraine coming on.  Starting to make me a bit sick. Blech.  I'm going to bed.

Sweet dreams, my lovelies.  I'll be dreaming of that cake case.... :)


  1. The gowns are beautiful. and , a please pass me some of that cake!!!! Looks yummy!

  2. yum, I love cake, sometimes I even dream of it :)

  3. i will be sure to get there next time i visit my parents, they live in marietta =)
    how often do you do the reenactments? is there a webpage for info?
    email me, if you want
    have a nice wknd!

  4. We go around once a month, depending on our finances. I'd have been at the event that the dresses are currently at this weekend, it's even relatively local compared to other events, but we didn't have the extra to spend on gas and my costumes don't currently fit and I need to sew new ones. I've just put other people's things ahead of my own. :) Our unit has a website, but it's very outdated. (Working on getting a new site up)
    Some of my previous posts mention reenacting- the R post for the A-Z had a lot of good info. There are a ton of events coming up soon as we reach the 150th anniversary of the war. I'll be posting more reenacting related stuff in the fall- that's when our next events are happening. :)
