The Barr B&B Event Recap

OME! This weekend was just one of those great weekends. Tracy & Mike came down on Friday from St. Louis. There just are not enough visits in the world to satisfy time spent with them!

Friday evening their arrival was around 6 p.m. The Barr B&B was more than ready & excited. Thankfully we all had the foresight to think one word: Pepitos. Tracy loves Pepitos. Cheyenne, Aubrey, & Olivia met us there for dinner. It was great. We laughed, ate, and just enjoyed visiting with wonderful friends. After dinner Tracy, Mike, Marcus & I headed to the house. We stayed up for a little while, but the long drive was getting to Mike & Tracy so we all called it a night.

Saturday morning came quick and after breakfast we all got ready for the day. Tracy & Mike had some papers they needed notarized and my husband helped out in that area. So we went in to his office and then Tracy & I went shopping. Nothing major - just Alumni Hall & Sam's club. Yes I know, Sam's is not the precious perfection of Costco, but she suffered through my quick run for some groceries :) After lunch it was time for Tracy & Mike to get ready for their evening.

Marcus had been able to score tickets for Mike & Tracy to the Miss. State game. They were so excited! Tracy was practically bouncing when they headed out the door.

Rob came down as usual & the three of us watched what began as a very sluggish - poor perception of Bama football in the first half but became a great game in the second half. Bama 35 - Miss State 7. Roll Tide!
Sunday brought on a morning of yummy breakfast casserole, Tracy & Mike went to church, Marcus & I goofed off. Then when they got home from church we had a yummy lunch of leftovers and lots of talking. After lunch movie & nap time came kind of quick. lol. Dinner though was hilarious. Marcus & Tracy are dangerously silly when they spend time together. I mean imagine a cheep-cheep joke about KMart, ICE ICE BABY, bro & sis love, choreography for camp Anawana, singing those well loved & lost camp slogan/songs, toe jam bread, and the heartfelt words: You broke my heart 'Cause I couldn't dance You didn't even want me around And now I'm back, to let you know I can really shake 'em down... Yes that was our evening. All that in just a few hours...yeah - Crazy Tasty!

After dinner we watched Made of Honor then slipped off to bed.

It is sad to think that when I get home tonight, they won't be there. Even more sad to realize that if I wanted to call them for dinner it would be a call more about the planning of when in the next year dinner is possible. I hope that they both know how much they mean to us. Friends are such a special part of your life and lucky for us these two are the kind of friends that break the barrier classification into family. Our reservation book is always open to these guests and next time we will be sure to provide a karaoke machine for Marcus & Tracy, goodness knows they would be in hog heaven! :):):):):):):) I will post pics as soon as I get everything uploaded!


  1. YEA!!!! Karaoke.. what an awesome idea, I can't wait. Mike has decided that we can open up a brach of our business in Alabama next... which means we'd me living there for at least a few months. Let's keep our fingers crossed!

  2. By the way, we love y'all to and I already miss my brother!
