About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Dining for Dollars at Spring Creek Barbeque

As a fund raiser, once a month the school meets at a specific restaurant for supper.  The restaurant gives the school a percentage of the sales.  Tonight we ate at Spring Creek Barbeque.  The kids had so much fun seeing their friends outside of school.  Aleck’s teacher, Mrs. Dickey, wanted to watch her daughter compete in a volleyball tournament so she asked if I could take her 30 minute hostess slot.  I said yes, not remembering that Tom was going to be out of town for work.  I said a little prayer that my kids would be good, and then I promised them ice cream if they sat quietly and ate their supper while I served hot rolls to the patrons.  As I watched the clock nervously, I circulated passing out hot rolls.  Thank goodness for answered prayers, because Aleck and Ella were awesome.  They would wave at me from across the room, but they never once got out of their seat.    They were absolute angels.  The icing on the cake was when more than one teacher came up to me to brag on Aleck.  I am one proud Momma.  The manager came up to me and said, “let me know when they are ready for ice cream.”  I must have looked at him funny because he said, “your son already stopped me to tell me that he gets ice cream if he’s good.”  If you look closely at the second picture, you can see the manager crouched down and waving.  Great service and great food.  I think we will add this restaurant to our eating out rotation.
