What do dancing, swine, birthdays, and mansions have in common? Nothing really, but they do in this post...
If you haven't seen this bit by comedian John Branyan yet, oh...it's so funny! And it truly does showcase the power of words, and also the differences in how people spoke in the 18th and 19th century versus more recent times...
And now to take a real step back into the 19th century...
Adelicia in younger years
"Adelicia" at the party on Saturday
(Hali Krewson who made a perfect mistress of Belmont)
Rachel McRae (of LifeWay) and her sweet BFF Cindy visited me at the Belmont Mansion (if you've read the book, we're currently standing in a guest bedroom on the main floor that now serves as the gift shop). Rachel posted the funniest blog about her visit!
I had the wonderful privilege of meeting some fabulous women from Henderson, TN. They are... (from L to R): Adana Buttrum, Bonnie Hendrix, Sandy Thompson, Bridget Self, Kristen Hicks and Becky Willis Welch. (Bless you gals for driving all that way!)
LOVED meeting Lynne Young, a FB friend. Thank you again, Lynne, for coming to celebrate Adelicia's Birthday, and to see her gorgeous home.
Pictured with "Adelicia" (Hali Krewson who made a perfect mistress of Belmont), and friends Melodie Garrison and her sweet daughter Maddie. We had such fun!
So…confession time! Did you watch Dancing with the Stars last night? I did! And if you did too, I'd love to know what you thought and who your favorites are. There were so many I enjoyed, it's hard to name them. But I especially liked Gladys Knight (love her music), Melissa Gilbert (I'm a Little House on the Prairie fan from way back), and Jaleel White (remember Urkel?), and Katherine Jenkins (oh that woman can sing!), and Sherri Shepherd (she's just so happy!), and Gavin DeGraw too (love his music as well). Such a fun season opener!
So come on, who are your DWTS favs?
