A Fun Visit & A Slippery Ride Home

Well, it is Monday and I know it sounds crazy that I am not participating this week in the Not Me Monday carnival of fun, but perhaps I will get back into the groove of things next week. All I can say is that my weekend was lots of fun. I had a wonderful time spending it with my parents. They live over 2 hours away so I don't get to see them all that frequently, but they do have their condo up for sale and hopefully they will sell it soon. Hey, if any of you readers are looking for a beautiful condo on a golf course here in Ohio then let me know. It really is a beautiful condo with a breath-taking view!! Anyway, my visit with them was so much fun. We went to Amish country, had a great lunch out that my Mom treated us to and then we cruised the antique malls and found some great goodies. I just love decorating with primitives and antiques so if my Mom is willing to take me out then I am all for it!! We just had a great time and I ended up coming home with lots of stuff. If you are interested in seeing some of those old antiques that I picked up then head on over to my other blog..... Prims from Above. I posted some pictures on there and will be posting more later today so be sure to stay posted to that site if you are interested in primitive/antique decorating. I know that alot of people aren't and that is fine. I guess that is why I posted that on my other blog. Ok, back to my lunch..... I had a ham & swiss quiche, a side salad with herb dressing and then I ended it with a shared piece of 7 layer carrot cake. Oh yes, that carrot cake was so YUMMY!! I must say that Rebecca's restaurant is my favorite and my Mom and I always have a date out at that restaurant when I go for a visit. Oh how I love FAMILY TIME!! Our drive home was a bit touch and go. We didn't know that we were suppose to get so much snow. We heard flurries, but you know those weathermen. I am not sure you can count on them that much. We ended up having a couple of inches and the roads were not good at all. One lady that was driving must not have been paying attention because she almost came over in front of us and caused a HUGE accident, we also passed by 2 other accidents and then we saw some lady driving 10 MPH - Yep, you heard me right - 10 MPH on the 4 lane freeway. How insane!! I am surprised she didn't cause an accident. Anyway, I was just so happy to be home and safe!! Here are some pictures of our drive home!! I know it may not look REAL bad, but the roads weren't great and when you have to drive with others that don't know how to drive then it can tend to get a bit crazy to say the least!!

Glad your viist was fun. And that you made it home safe.
We went to a shower yesterday and the further we got from home, the worse it got. (the shower was about an hour from us) At the shower they had about 2" when we got there.
Enjoy your snowy day. We are to get more tomorrow, I think.

I'm so glad you made it home safe and sound. I was thinking about you a lot and wondering what your drive was going to be like. Ugh~Ohio and winter weather. If I had my rathers, I would rather not drive in messes like that.

Love and hugs,
Stacey
