Back inside I grabbed a protein bar just as daughter came in bringing g-son to stay with Pawpaw today while we make another trip to Spartanburg SC to pick up her veil and let d-in-love and Re try on bridesmaid dresses. She brought me my favorite cup of Opra Chi tea latte from Starbucks. Schools are closed today for Martin Luther King day so this an opportunity we can't pass up.
We picked up d-in-love on the way out and were on our way south by 9:00. BB has a drs. appointment at 9:00 this morning so Re is meeting us back at the Westgate mall where David's Bridal shop is.
The bridal shop that has the veil is farther south than the mall so we figured we could make it back at the same time to meet Re. We stopped to feed Ruby once on the way there as she is not a good traveling companion when she is hungry.
We killed a few minutes in a Kirkland's decor store waiting for David's bridal to open. Daughter found some large drink holding jars at a good sale price and also a couple picture frames for the reception. I found a stepping stool for EL so she can reach the water in the bathroom sink to wash her own hands, a candle that smells wonderful and a rooster lazy susan. Re also found a couple things.
It is a good thing Re and d-in-love went to try on the dress because they both wound up getting different dresses than they thought they would like !!
Re thought she was getting this style.....
D-in-love thought she was getting this one...
Little EL wanted to get in on all this dress trying on and we all got a good laugh when she quietly came out of the dressing room with this dress on !!!!
We made it back at 3:15 and daughter headed out to basketball practice.
G-son and his Pawpaw had a good day of fun and games and he wanted to stay a little longer but went home to see his sister willingly.
The high temperature today has been 29 but the sunshine made it feel less chilling.
Hubbie wanted to go to Sam's Club and get a couple things so we went there and then checked the sale racks at Belks but didn't find much. I did find a new pair of snow boots on sale at a good price.
At chore time this evening I broke the ice again so the animals could get a drink before they headed inside for the night.
It is 18 degrees tonight at 10:00 and with 9 degrees and lower lows the chill factor in the morning is going into the dangerous levels of -5 to -20 degrees. My prayers go out to anyone and anything that is out in this cold tonight.
None of the weather forecasters will totally commit to how much or exactly where the snow will fall but there is no sense taking chances !!
Thankful to God for traveling mercies today and for the blessings of this day.
God Bless and Good Night
