Cracker Barrel!

Ok I went to look at the dining room set AGAIN, I emphasize that because this will be our 2nd LONG time looking at it. We left without ordering AGAIN. I dont know why, we both like it--but for now nothing! I'll keep yas updated but I do think I want to go check one more store. When your getting an item that you know will probably be your last purchase, you want to make sure its "you". Okkk, so on to other things. We went to Cracker Barrel for dinner which was amazing. Each of us had dinner and we split a dessert and our bill was only $22.00. We were sooo happy. Thats a deal in these times. I had the fish fry, baldyman had the chicken soup in a bread bowl and for dessert we had the bread pudding. The food was great, we sat right in front of the roaring fireplace. It was heaven! Sooo, after dinner I had to shop. Anyone who has been to Cracker Barrel knows they have really unique things. Sooo for starters, I got this Relax sign. Dosnt this rock? I put it in our guest room which always has a breathing body in it...so I never get to enjoy it....this is totally me.

And when I saw this pillow I literally laughed out loud! I dont even eat truffles but yet it just struck me. This is gracing my chaise and I love this to.

And this--well all people that love chocolate--nothing more needs to be said! This is a little doorhanger that also graces my guest room with a forever breathing body in it. I have it on the bed that I never get to sleep in!
And the last is this pitcher. Its quite large actually. Its a Valentines Pitcher but you wouldnt know it. Its ceramic and I love it. I'm going to get some pretty flowers for it today and it graces my old dining room table that for some odd reason I cant get rid of..but will soon! lol... anyhow so that was my Friday shopping adventure. They had some adorable things-but since my birthday is coming up I let baldyman know thats where I would like to go...he says this year there are no gift exchange..I said I cant go without gifts yet. I hope he dosnt stick to that! Happy Weekend everyone.

I understand taking your time to make a big purchase like that. Like Lady of the Mote said, you'll know when the time is right! I love your purchases - I think I need to borrow that relax sign! My computer woes have sent me thru the roof. And dinner at Cracker Barrel sounds awesome!

Hey girlfriend... Your new dining room will come when you’re ready... I know I had a hard time getting rid of my beautiful furniture I had for 35 years when we decided to go full time in the RV... I just know I will be sorry around time to go back into a house... As for Cracker Barrel I love it there... we ate there twice a week ago and I could go again... You can always count on great food and fun stuff to look at and buy... Loved your vase and pillows... Have a great Saturday. Love YA

HELLO DAWN,
I HAD NEVER HEARD OF CRACKER BARREL UNTIL THIS YEAR WHEN MY MOTHER AND DADDY ATE THERE AND SHE BOUGHT A BEAUTIFUL TURKEY FOR A SIDE TABLE.
I LOVE YOUR TREASURES YOU PURCHASED.
HAVE A HAPPY SATURDAY. YOU MAY JUST BE GOING TO FIND THE TABLE YOU WANT AT A BETTER PRICE AND THAT IS WHY YOU HAVE NOT PURCHASED IT YET...GOD WORKS THAT WAY.
