Baby, Look at Me Now!

Hi All!

Do you remember the cactus that my mother sent to me in the mail? Three little pieces of sad looking cactus all the way from Ohio. I was so proud when I took this picture of it - it had grown!

Well, look at that "poor little cactus" now!
It is blooming!

There are two flowers right now but there are probably six or seven more buds just getting ready to pop!

I think they are absolutely enchanting! What do you think?

Go, cactus, go!

My parents and my uncle are here visiting from Ohio. Hubby and I picked them up from the airport and went to Babe's to eat. This is a local chicken place which serves stuff family style. The food was good and the atmosphere was fun. There was music and the setting was rustic. The waitress was wonderfully helpful and friendly. I think we all had a great time.
I did feel bad for the waitresses though when they had to do the "Hokey Pokey."
This morning we headed to the local Wal Mart which has a Budget rental car franchise in it so that Dad could rent a car for their trek up north to Oklahoma. Right now, Dad is out in the driveway washing the car that was just washed because it looked horrible. I took a look at the thing and he is right - they did a horrific job washing that car. It certainly wouldn't have passed my quality control test!

Today is my last day of "regular" classes. Next Tuesday is Finals! Yikes! I am starting to get a little nervous!

Look at you go with that cactus!

I haven't been to a family style restaurant in years... sounds like just the thing!

That cactus is so pretty! What a good idea to take 'before' and 'after' photos!
Not that I can talk, I'm always doing that! lol
