Back from vacation

Yes, we made it back safely from Virginia Tuesday morning around 8:00 am. We had a wonderful weekend! I so wish that I could go back to last Thursday and start all over again. Needless to say, I cried when I saw Matt. Gosh darn it, I've really missed that young man.

I am hoping that you remembered that I cooked enough to feed the Marines. I wish you could have seen the look on their face when I opened the Tupperware bowl, 2 layers full, of lasagna. They told me that my lasagna was the best they had ever had. I swear I don't believe the Marine Corps feeds those boys... *giggles* and I don't believe my lasagna was the best ever. In my opinion it had to much garlic ... but anyways... they sure seemed to enjoy it.

Here is Matt and a couple of his buddies after they had scarfed down the lasagna. I don't think I've ever seen anybody eat as fast as those guys did.

And here are the happy Marines that had full bellies of lasagna...oh yeah and caramel cake and sweet tea. They were H-A-P-P-Y!!!!

Friday was the beach! Oh I could sooooooooooo be a beach bum... everything was perfect in every way... I decided right then and there that I would do one and only one post for HNT. Yes, you heard me right, I'm doing a HNT, Half Nekkid Thurday, so here see for yourself....HALF NEKKID THURSDAY .... ;-)

Will post more from my trip in my next post. I've got so much to do... I need a vacation to get over the vacation. I will play blog catch up soon.. I promise.

I bet they are still talking about that lasagna and wishing you were going back soon!

Marines learn to eat that fast from boot camp - they only have a few minutes to eat, so they have to do it quickly!

Love the beach photos. *grin*

Thanks for the beach message


Blogger Turnbaby said ... (7/10/2008 1:03 PM) : 


beach and Sugarbaby's naked toes!!

I know sugar--I need a vacation to get over my vacation that wasn't ;-)


Your Marine and his buddies sure look happy all full of your good Southern cooking



Blogger Mo said ... (7/10/2008 2:28 PM) : 

Lasagna and caramel cake?!?!
Whoooo Hoooo!


Blogger Linda said ... (7/10/2008 6:09 PM) : 

To hecks with the lasagna, I'd want to save room for the caramel cake!

As for eating fast, unfortunately you learn that in basic training and it's a hard habit to break. It took me years to slow down - especially when the food was good as I bet yours was!


Blogger Mags said ... (7/10/2008 6:19 PM) : 

Looks like you done good by the looks of those smiles!! :) I'm gld you got to see (and feed) your Marine.


Blogger Crazy Working Mom said ... (7/10/2008 10:14 PM) : 

Looks like a happy bunch to me! :)

Looks wonderful honey. Happy Marines and a happy mama too I'm sure.

Glad you're back.


Blogger jennifer said ... (7/12/2008 1:36 AM) : 

Aww Dixie! I am glad that you had a good time! And those young men! They look so...young! How brave to be Marines!

Really makes me happy that you could take care of your son and his friends with a home cooked meal.

I'm so glad Matt is doing well and you got to see him and his friends, it's those bonds that will keep him safe in his endeavors.


Blogger Meribah said ... (7/17/2008 7:15 PM) : 

Mmmm, lasagna! My all time fav dish! I make sure my mom makes it for me on my b-day every year.
Wooo! Those are some satisfied Marines! Glad y'all had fun. :)


Blogger Julie said ... (7/19/2008 7:05 PM) :
