I have to tell you, I love Cracker Barrel!  I love their food and their country atmosphere and I love shopping in their store.  I rarely go in there without leaving with a package. 

Charlotte and I visited there on Thursday on our way home from Nashville.  I had the chicken and dumplins with sweet potato casserole (LOVE IT!), southern style green beans and a biscuit.  I swear it makes my mouth water just to think of it!  The only person I've ever known who could out do them on chicken and dumplins was my Momma.  I try so hard to do it like Momma, but it just never quite makes it. 

Me, Charlotte and Debra

Great Smoky Mtns. National Park
Our Sister Vacation!

As we were entering, we noticed some very cute little spring dresses for a very reasonable price.  Charlotte couldn't help but buy one for her 4 year old granddaughter, Allyson.  We looked for one to coordinate for the 9 month old, Kayleigh, but didn't find one.  We'll have to make another trip for hers.  No problem, Charlotte and I like to shop!  And, perhaps we'll talk Debra into making that trip with us!  Three sisters out to shop.....sounds like a near perfect day to me!

I saw the sweetest picture frame.  It had the first verse of "Time In A Bottle" by Jim Croce imprinted over a graphic print of some sort with an area to frame a picture.  My heart almost melted when I saw it; that was 'our song'.  I can't tell you how many times Terry sang that song to me over the years!  I wanted it so badly, but it was more than I felt comfortable paying.  I can't stop thinking about it.  I just think I may have to buy one the next time I'm in one of their stores.  Life just isn't worth it if you can't splurge every once in a while for something that is special to you!

So, that's my ramblings for this late evening.  Oh, and I forgot to mention, Charlotte bought Ricky (my NIL) a box of GooGoo clusters, one of his favs, and her boys some vanilla almond coffee (think that one might have been just a bit for her!).  I, for once in my life, managed to walk out empty handed.  Will wonders never cease?!

Praise the Lord!
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
His faithful love endures forever.

Psalm 106:1  (NLT)
