Engaged! Finally...

My Baytown BFF got engaged! Sure, she got married 57 years ago, but when you date someone for only seven weeks before getting married, you don't really have time to get an engagement ring. So for an early birthday present this year, sweet Bill Snead gave his wife an engagement ring. If you know Lois, be sure to admire her new diamonds.

Some of you know about my Baytown friend Jennifer, who died of lymphoma in 2004. Not long before we left Baytown in 2006, Jennifer's husband Tommy started dating Heather. They are getting married this weekend in Memphis, and we are going! We are so excited about this joyful event -- especially after seeing Tommy and his two young girls go through the devastation of losing Jennifer. This is also my first trip to Memphis (and Tennessee, for that matter) and our first getaway (just Chad and me) since before Jenna was born.

And we're staying at the fabulous Peabody Hotel on Union Ave. We'll keep an eye out for Elvis!

    Eat some Rendezvous bar-b-que for me!

    Memphis is where my grandmother grew up and Dad was born. Enjoy your trip!

    Have a great time! I went to Graceland back in 2001.. it's much smaller than you would expect.

    Nashville surprised me. It's gorgeous!

    We honeymooned in Memphis and visited Elvis at Graceland, got lost one night in the rain and had a burger at one of the best burger joints ever - i wish I could figure out where that was! I went back a couple of years ago - it's still a good visit - but Elvis's story is so sad. The peanut butter & nanner sandwiches are great, though. Get one if you can!

    We spent our first anniversary at the Peabody hotel. And yes, you have to eat some Rendezvous barbecue.
