After working half a day on Saturday, Kam and I decided to be spontaneous and take a day trip to a smaller town in Mississippi. Kam and I packed up Ellison and drove an hour east to a town called Meridian. We stopped by a natural water fall (yes in Mississippi they have waterfalls...granted they are only about 50 feet high) that used to power a gristmill. We stayed there for a few minutes taking pictures and letting Ellie put her feet in the water. We then ventured out and found an old general store that has been in operation since the 1860's. In Meridian there is a section of town that houses an old carousel, we tried finding that, but didn't have any luck. We then went to the mall which was a very special treat. Ever since Sarah Jessica Parker announced her clothing line, I have wanted to shop at Steve and Barry's just to see what they have because I know the whole premise of the store is affordable clothing. Well, the closest store was in Louisiana and I knew that I may never get there. A couple of months ago, my sister in law and I were talking about the store and I decided to look again and found they have a store in Meridian!!! So, we stopped at the mall and I got a jean jacket from the Sarah Jessica Parker line for $9.64. Needless to say, I will be making another trip to Meridian when I have lost more weight.
On Sunday I got to conduct again because my counselors were out. One of my counselors was in Long Beach, CA attending AOTA (American Occupational Therapy Association) conference, and the other home sick with her child. I was also down 2 of my teachers, so Kam and his mother saved the day by taking some of the kids. We also finally took a picture of Ellison in her Easter dress, complete with the headband sent by my sister, who loves to spoil Ellison (keep it up Christy)! I hope you all had a great weekend to, I can't wait to read about it in your posts!
