I Love this Boy So.....have I mentioned that?.....

So today was one for the Senior Journal. Yep, still keeping that baby. It helps me to keep things in perspective for me. I love this boy so.........

Today we had a rare afternoon free, so we went to lunch at one of our fav's: Lola's in Nixa. If you live close to me and haven't been, oh you should so go. Please let me know and I will tell ya where it's at, and ya never know I may just join you. It is so delish!!! And the atmosphere is just so it!!

So here's my sweet boy....

I love him so.....have I mentioned that?

What's that Dak?!! You love me too?! are the best!!!!!!

Here's my boy......
These pics are from my cell doesn't like sunlight.

So just as a weird side note on this pic of reminds me of something my hilarious mother asked me the other day.

"So Dawn, does water ever pool in you neck?"
hahahahaha as a matter of fact ........

How funny is that?!! (That was for you RJ ~~ you gotta love a funny mama ~~ hey are our momma's related =)

So what made our time at Lola's so enjoyable? Well besides the impeccable company, our waitress was TERRIFIC!!! Doesn't a good waitress/waiter just make a dining experience sometimes?!! Her name was Trish, and at one point, she came by with our to-go cups tucked safely in her apron and she just walked by and twisted toward Dak to show him the cups, he didn't miss a beat, he grabbed them right out of her apron....It was priceless!!!! and so stinkin' cute.......have I mentioned that I love him? =)

And Trish I know you are reading this today, thank you again.....You made our day at Lola's one to remember. A sweet memory for this mama of a Senior to tuck away in her heart and her journal. Thank you.

We then went to do a little shopping for Senior Pics. I know....please do not get me started, I will cry buckets right here on this blog.....ya know, the big, ugly cry!!!! I love him so.....have I mentioned that? =)

We did really well on the shopping trip.
1 pair of jeans
2 t-shirts
2 button up shirts

Not to shabby!!! We had so much fun!! I found an adorable blouse that I thought was SO cute. Dak said I looked like a hippy =) so I didn't get it ........ but I might just take my hippy self back into that resale shop tomorrow and purchase. If I do I'll show you and y'all can see what you think =)

I'd like to leave you with this song. I've been down loading songs that are in the back of our Ruth study book. Have I mentioned how much I love it?!! The whole experience is just so rich ~~ and the music is absolutely beautiful!!

Okay so I wanted to give you a little "Come Now My Love" by Alli Rogers, but it isn't on youtube, so I'm gonna leave you with this one..... "Go" by Anadara

Have a Super Blessed and Beautiful Day,
