I am anxious to move on in my life.........we do move often lately and it is your comments that keep me going. Thank you so much for being my blogger friends.
As I promised in the last post, I have Donna's tablescape to share with you today.
Donna and I met in Buffalo, NY at church. Over the past several years we have been trying to meet but it never seemed the right time.We finally got to spend two days together!
Mr.. Sweetladyelaine and I went to Baton Rouge for two days while I was on a house hunting trip in Houston, Texas. Donna & Kurt live in Lafayette, La & invited us to dinner at their house.
Of course, I had to take pictures of her beautiful table and show you....
I noticed she & I have the same chargers and placemats! I was thrilled.
I only got to take a few pictures....
I loved her salad plates! I think she told me they were from
Wal-Mart. I also loved her pashmina scarf that she used as her tablecloth. A great idea and it makes her dishes shine. Beautiful!
Everyone was so hungry. (Mr. Sweetladyelaine & I got their a little late due to traffic)
I took them fast!
We had roast beef with gravy, mashed potatoes, buttered carrots, and a layered salad. The salad happens to be my favorite! I forgot the hot buttered rolls & wine! She did serve another veggie but I forgot what it was. It was all so delicious!
You can see the men already started to fill their plates. Everything was so yummy!
Did I mention we ate by candlelight? The perfect centerpiece for me because I love candles and so does Donna.
Donna was happy.......
Kurt was happy.........
And for dessert......cheesecake in different flavors with whipped cream & a cherry!
We had a wonderful visit. It had been a long time since we had spent time together as couples. I didn't realize how much I missed them until we were going home. I am glad God gave us the opportunity to see each other.
Donna is godly woman. We developed our friendship over time. She keeps my head on straight when I feel I can't go on any more. She gives me godly wisdom & encouragement when I need it. She keeps me accountable. She tells me the truth and always tells me she loves me.
I am so grateful to have a wonderful friend like her.
Do you have a friend like that? I hope you do....everyone needs a person to keep them encouraged & strong!
I'm not sure when we will get together again, but I do know we Skype often.
A BIG Thank you to Donna & Kurt for a lovely dinner!
I will be joining
