And I'm Baaa-aack!!

Not only am I back, but I'm wireless!!  I know it is so last year for most people, but we are just now experiencing it, so think back to how cool it was and try to relate.  It is awesome.

We went to Nashville today for a drum run...Fork's Drum Closet is a frequent destination for darling hubby.  He always makes sure to do something fun with us after he wraps up his drummer business.  Today we went to a very upscale mall that we had not been to before.  It had Coach, Louis Vuitton, Juicy Couture and many other WOW! EXPENSIVE type stores.  It was an interesting experience, but also kind of depressing.  I kept thinking of what $300 spent on a purse would buy for an orphanage in a third world country.  I looked at the brand spanking new Mercedes in front of us and thought that it would be more than enough money to dig a well that would provide a whole village with clean drinking water. 

I certainly don't have a problem with wealth and I would never dream of telling someone else how to spend the money they work to earn, but I cannot fathom spending that kind of money on STUFF. 

We finished out our day at Baja Burrito and it was soooo good.  I want to open a franchise of it here in our fair town...just so we can eat there more often.  I had a taco salad today, but giant burritos ROCK!!

Well, that is all I have to say tonight.  I am off to get some sleep!

Funny how awareness really rocks our world in regard to STUFF!

Baja is soooo yummy! We definitely need a franchise here in Paducah - Mike and I talk about it EVERYTIME we eat there! Glad you guys had a fun day!
