I Heart You Weekend!

This past weekend, Shane & I were invited by his boss to the Mississippi Seedman's Association Conference.  I have to admit I love going with Shane to his conferences, usually I get to sleep in and go shopping, basically do what I want.  This weekend was a little different, they had an event especially for the wives - I'll get to that in a moment.  We left Friday afternoon headed to Harrah's Casino (formerly the Grand) in Tunica, MS.
Doesn't this place look fabulous, they have 3 gorgeous hotels, ours was the Veranda.
On Friday evening, there was a short meet and great, then off to dinner at
where we met some old friends, Trey & Staci, from State (for those who don't know that means Mississippi State) and Shane's boss.  I had the Lamb Rib Roast, I wish I had taken a picture of this dish, it was absolutely delicious. 

On Saturday, there was a joint breakfast before the men went to meetings - I didn't quite make the breakfast, I did mention I like to sleep in.  But I did make it to the ladies event - a cooking demonstration by the Head Chef Tammy at the Paula Deen Buffet.  No it wasn't Paula Deen herself but it was her fabulous recipes and Chef Tammy did it justice plus I found out the Chef was originally from Bastrop, LA (my hometown).  She prepared 2 dishes, 1 a Southern staple - Chicken Pot pie and the other has definitely become one of my new favorites - Chocolate Cookie Truffle, which I plan to make very soon.
They also gave away little "happies" and door prizes, I forgot to take a picture of what was in the box (my happy) was a Tyler Candle Company perfumed candle.  My door prize was the tower of Peter's Pottery sherbert dishes with a recipe attached.
You can view more of these pieces at http://www.peters-pottery.net/.  This is going to be one of new favorite pieces.

NOW FOR THE BEST OF THE WEEKEND!!!!!!

My sweet, loving, adorable hubby believes that Valentine's Day is for the ladies and I never argue with that because I LOVE PRESENTS!!!  And after reading this book, we realized Shane's love language is giving so I gladly accept them.  If you have not read this book, it is a great book for any marriage.
Shane surprised me with a pearl necklace, bracelet, and earrings.  He never ceases to amaze me.

I love you, my sweet hubby!

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins.

I can't wait to get to Tunica to eat Ms. Deen's buffett.
Have been reading Aiden's story.
I have no words that will do justice, so I will send you a hug instead.
