Lauren and Chris came over. They brought Bella, their miniature dachshund.
Lauren and Chris also brought some pictures of baby Brown! Lauren had her
first ultrasound on Friday and the MD said everything looks great! Praise the Lord!
Libby and Ken came over and brought Luke, the cutie pie in the above picture.
We ordered Mellow Mushroom and hung out around the house.
The girls and Luke took a trip to several stores around Athens.

We went to Rattles and Rhymes first, and you will not believe who we saw...
Jamie Deen!!!

Paula Deen's son! I was so excited! I didn't want to make a big scene, but I did tell him "Hey!" while grining ear-to-ear. Later, he started a conversation with Libby about Luke. Libby played completely dumb. She asked him if he had children, she asked the name of her child, etc.
All the while, I am answering all Libby's questions to him in my head.
But he was totally cool. We never mentioned anything about who he was even though I was dying to! Alan told me I should have asked him where his Momma was?
We figured if he was annoyed by my goofy, star-stricken "hey" he wouldn't have talked to us.
Alan said he probably likes talking to fans like us!
He clearly knew that we knew who he was, but we didn't make a big scene!

If you know me well you know that I love Paula Deen.
I have her cookbooks, I get her magazine, I get her online newsletters, and I Tivo every one of her shows on Food Network. I think she is hilarious! Her recipes are delicious even if they
have a pound of sugar and 2 sticks of butter in them. In fact I made her mini peanut butter cup cheesecakes on Saturday. They were very fattening, but so yummy!

Well, enough about that. I made two bows for the green and pink dress.
Let me just tell you...A-d-o-r-a-b-l-e!
I tried to finish dress #2, but I think I royally messed up the button holes.
Paige swears we can fix it. (Ummm...she hasn't seen it!)
I bought more fabric to sew another dress. It's aqua and brown polka dots.
I hope to start it later tonight.

And speaking of Paige...she made these cute overalls...

She put them in a kids clothing sale called Sweet Repeats in the town where she lives.
She went to Saturday to shop for her boys and she looked to see if the overalls were still there...and one pair was gone! I'm so proud of her!
Well, it's gym and tanning time...
