For my local readers... and visitors too!

Last night several girlfriends gathered together to support one of our girls that is going through Chemo right now for Breast Cancer..we get together the day before her treatment know, let her know how much we love her, appreciate her, admire her strength and really to support her. last night we went to the relatively new restaurant in Forest Acres, Columbia, SC..Cafe Caturra. It was my first time,but several of the girls had been before and raved about it. Here is my take.. since I am a foodie and cook for a living(at times) between Mortgage goes. I thought it was good...not great, but the price point on the food were concise with the portions..and speaking of the portions..apps were great..and I had the Crabcakes as an entree..very small, but filling and at $9.00 affordable. I also had a nice Oregon pinot gris @ happy Hour price of $5.00. The atmosphere is wonderful! Wide open..airy, flowy(is that a word) and bustling. All in All I will go back with the hubby sans the children..not a family restaurant to me although their wood-Fired pizza's looked delish. I would consider taking the children early..say later. So if you are in the 29206 Cafe Caturra a visit! Tell them Just Ask Beth sent you!

A question...

Hubby and I have 2 tickets Friday Night for the USC vs. Alabama Baseball game.. baby girl has a baseball game..would it be rude to make arrangements for her to be dropped off and picked up while we go on a date..or should we give them away and go to her game..Her 15 year old sister will be with her during the game to cheer her on.. One of us is always at the game or both of us.. She is nine..

I didn't realize my "quirks" until my children and hubby brought it to my attention. So here are just a few. 1. I must vacuum rug in living room everyday in a pattern..and no one can walk on it..they must walk on hardwood(around it) **just for a few hours*** sheesh 2. I must blow off our Deck everyday..I don't like the shoot me 3. I hate when pinestraw(prevalent in SC) accumulates on the roof of our home(remove please) 4. All dishes MUST be out of the sink and in dishwasher. just plain cleanliness 5. All Beds must be made before we(they) leave the house. so what! 6. All pillows fluffed everyday..makes house look pretty. 7. Lawn..neat and clean..since I cancelled the YARD service..since I don't have a MAID service..this is hard for hubby to get done..but it does! HEE HEE 8. Towels..must be folded in three's..ok, I realize now I am sick! 9. I turn lights off constantly ARG!! Pet Peeve..hubby is the worst! 10. Laundry..must be Gain and Downey..but drumroll please..I recently purchased ERA at Sam's..pinching pennies, not bad, smells nice, but I am returning to GAIN!! I love the way our clothes smell. So now, that you know I am bordeline Cray you still like me?

Me? Again!...

I have had Jury Duty like 3 times in the last 5 years and I am not kidding.. why me? I mean it is fun to listen to a juicy case if I am picked..always, but most of the time boring..except the one DRUG case I sat on..very clever those drup people..who would have thought of delivering marijuana in a potato chip bag?..not me! Well, found out my friend from HS has it also, so we are going to meet up for lunch!! not too bad.

Taking the time..

I know we are all busy..and some of you are UBER Bloggers with a mass following, however, it would be nice..ONCE in a while to reciprocate a comment..Perhaps I am boring..clearly, or you read and don't comment..guilty here also, but I do try to leave a comment every now and again.

Is it too much too ask?
