Sub-Woofers, Food and Friends! Oh My!

*Warning: This post is lengthy so if you don't have time to read it all, you are excused. Those of you who love me, carry on!*LOL!
Nothing like a good guilt trip huh? LOL!

Mother's Day Weekend 2010
I'll be honest with you, Saturday I wish I could have ran screaming from the house with my hands waving in the air. I won't go into why, but it did involve 2 little boys. LOL!
So needless to say when my husband got home from work I was a completely little bit out of sorts. He was so kind and patient and listened to my woes and then lovingly asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day. I hadn't hinted at anything because honestly I don't need anything. BUT then I remembered that the sub-woofer in my SUV had blown out and it was driving me crazy. (Momma likes her music loud when she's cruising the strip road alone!)

Seriously, IMMEDIATELY he got to work. He took the panel off of the speaker and thought that it was going to be as simple as unscrewing 6 screws and "popping" out the old, blown out speaker.
Boy was he wrong. To make this part of the long story short, let's show some pictures shall we!
What's left of the speaker!

My honey bunches getting what's left of the speaker out with the Dremel tool.
(Oh yeah, he meant business.)
Come to find out, if you wanted to do it the "right" way you had to take the whole back of the SUV apart to get to the speaker box, that had the speaker in it, that was SCREWED into the speaker box, from the BACK!
My husband REFUSED to do it that way. He was on a roll and you weren't gonna stop him!
Don't mess with my husband FORD! You won't win! LOL!

Moving on to Mother's Day!

Sadly I woke up to an extreme headache but I wasn't going to let that get me down.

I woke up, had my coffee and my precious daughter made french toast and scrambled eggs for breakfast.
We then set off for church!
After my hubby taught Sunday School the Pastor got a phone call from a friend of his who is opening a brand new restaurant on the river and he needed people to come and give the waitresses a trial run. So after church we headed out to lunch at Grill's.
Did I mention that it was all FREE!!!!

So whoever from our church who wanted to go, got to go. I honestly couldn't believe more people didn't show up, but believe me it was there loss. A total benefit from having a smaller congregation! Woot! Woot!
So here's some of the gang getting ready to enter Grill's!

More of the gang.
The tables were really pretty but of course I didn't get a picture of one of them to show you. Not that you really care either. LOL!
Someone was being a booger when as I took the picture, so my daughter just photo-shopped in a nice picture to make up for it. I think it looks a lot like him! I'm pretty sure he's wanted by the law! Ha! Ha! Oh me!

Some of the view!

For whatever reason blogger is totally messing with my pictures so I guess I'll end the photos here. And I was going to show you the most amazing bathroom. LOL!
Yes, we actually went into the bathroom just to take pictures and sadly I can't show them to you because they keep disappearing on my posts.

So to wrap it all up, the meal was fabulous, we had a great time, we came home, my daughter made me a peanut butter pie and we called it a day!
I love you my family and church family!!
And those of you who actually read this whole post! LOL!
