Our 30th Wedding Anniversary in Branson!

Hey neighbors!

We made it!  And today is actually our anniversary!  I just have to tell you a little about our trip.  We left at 5:30 Saturday morning.  We did a quick Hardees drive thru for breakfast and continued on our way.  Now, I want you to know that I LOVE to stop at yard sales and often can't.  So, on the way to Branson, my husband and I stopped at some yard sales.  Not alot, but we managed to fit a few in!  And yes, we did buy a couple of thing!




We had lunch in Springfield at Longhorn.  I will be doing a separate post on this, but I will let you know, they are one of my favorite restaurants.  Our server was great!  I also gave my husband a special gift there, but, that is another post.  Are you getting curious yet?  You will have to stop in again!

We arrived at the hotel around 5:00 pm.  After checking in, we decided to relax a little bit and we had our leftovers from lunch for dinner.  Still the best!

Sunday we decided to attend a church nearby and we were able to hear Tim Lee a Vietnam Vet give his testimony.  Very interesting.  And much to my son's dismay (he wasn't here), the church was cleaning out their library to make room for new books, so they had a book sale.  We purchased 5 boxes of very good books for .25 each or 10 for $1.  Not a bad deal!

Lunch again was Longhorn in Springfield.  As I stated above you will find out more in a separate post. After lunch we visited some Antique Malls.  I love to wander through these, looking for unique items and realizing that toys that I once played with are now considered antiques!  We had a great time and returned to the hotel to relax the rest of the evening, after a quick stop at Coldstone.

Monday morning we went Branson Cafe for breakfast and then on to Butterfly Palace, yet again you will read more in another post.  We visited Charley's Grilled Subs for lunch.  Ohhh this was good.  A Philly Cheesesteak!  We wandered the old downtown stores a bit and then went back to the room for a break before dinner at Dixie Stampede!

Now it is Tuesday.  Today we had a quick breakfast and then drove to Silver Dollar City.  Any of my neighbors been there?  You need to visit sometime.  For lunch we went to Cracker Barrel.  That pretty much brings everyone up to date.  Now, be sure and keep an eye out for these other posts. They will be going up soon!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.
