Here's a beautiful shot of Chattanooga!
When Greg and I walked up - we saw Betsy & George's smiling faces on the Cracker Barrel porch. You can already tell what a nice and happy couple they are! (I could see Betsy's smiling face a mile away!)
Leedra was a little late (ha! I had to get that in Leedra!) and we immediately had to whip out our cameras to start taking photos of each other! (Greg is a little more camera shy!)
Betsy, Leedra and I have one thing in common for sure - we LOVE TO TALK!! Poor George and Greg - they could barely get a word in edgewise! I think we only came up for air once.
I have a few more photos to post when I get home. But I have to mention the lovely gifts that I received from my friends - beautiful iris plants from Leedra and a beautiful waterfall photo from Betsy and George. It was a wonderful time and I was sad to leave - so glad to have met these 3 kind blogger friends in person!

We made it to Kentucky and will finish the rest of our journey to Tennessee tomorrow morning. I hope I can sleep tonight - we pigged out on Mongolian Barbecue and my stomach feels so full. I may have to go run around the hotel several times! The drive down has been nice and we are looking forward to exploring Chattanooga. I will check in with you soon!

Thank you and good luck!
As you all know, I'm in the throes of puppy love right now! I get to pick up my Bernese Mountain girl on June 27th - I am counting down the days. I'm seriously tempted to call the breeder to ask her if she can put the puppy on the phone so I can say hello!
I have thought of a name and have listed the clues below. I have 2 prizes to give away from my nature store. Here are the rules:
- First prize goes to the first person to correctly guess my baby girl's name! Must be a U.S. or Canadian resident. No duplicate guesses!
- Second prize goes to the person who I deem has the cutest name for a dog that they currently own. Please list that name on this post. Only one name please!
- Must have a blog.
- Contest closes at 11:59 p.m. on June 14th. Winner will be announced on June 15th.
Here are your CLUES to my puppy's name:
- Based on a female character in a Pulitzer prize winning book.
- This book was published between 1955 - 1965.
- Was made into a movie.
- Takes place in the South.
I hope these are enough clues.....If not, I'll post more. PLEASE NOTE I am leaving for Tennessee Wed. afternoon and won't be back until Sunday so please be patient with me in case I do not have Internet access. We are going to visit one of my hubby's customers - but guess which lovely blogger ladies I'll get to meet for lunch on Friday?! Betsy & Leedra - WATCH OUT!! Shelley is coming to town......

I went and saw my baby today! (Or as Jen calls her - "the nameless puppy" - ha!) Look at this sweet little face!
Do you think she already knows how spoiled she's going to be?
Here's she is laying against her sister. I just want to rub that puppy belly!
Yes, I have a bad case of puppy love! I have to enjoy her 4 pounds of sweetness right now - cuz next year she's going to be a 70-90 pound girl! Can you picture it???
P.S. I thought of a name for my baby girl. I'm going to make you guess. And then I'll give away a prize to the 1st person with the correct answer! Clues and giveaway details will be posted Wednesday morning.

Pam gave me the Loon basket below as a gift! I was so touched and estatic at the same time! (You all know how I love my Loon themed stuff at our log cabin!) She is the 2nd blogger friend I've met and was just as sweet as I thought she would be. (Thank you again Pam!) I placed it on my counter near my Loon cookie jar so I can admire it everytime I'm in the kitchen.
Look at the Loons she painted on this!
P.S. I'm going to visit my puppy again this afternoon! More pics forthcoming! I will also be catching up with all of your blogs - hope your weekend was wonderful!
