Disco & Wedding Weekend

Over the weekend I . . . . .

went to dinner with my Mom, then we went out dancing to a new location of a famous club here in Memphis called Raifords. Mike went out with his best friend so Mom and I made a night of it! The new club we went to is called "Paula's Raifords" because the daughter of Raiford: Paula, wanted to open up her own place. It's not your typical club, think Saturday Night Fever! They play disco, a lot of Michael Jackson, Jackson 5 and mix in some hits from today. It was so fun! Thanks Mom for going with me!!!

(These photos are horrible because for one they have fog machines inside, ha ha, & two, I used my phone cam.)

Then we had to go to a wedding Sunday (yes Sunday.) It was our neighbor's son. He used to live there too a few years ago, but now he has grown up and is married. (It made me feel really old!) It was a sweet wedding and we had a nice time. I saw some old friends and got to catch up which was nice. The wedding was planned in only 90 days! WOW! But it was rushed because the bride's father has cancer and is very ill and it is not looking good! The bride wanted her dad to be able to walk her down the isle, so that was why the wedding was planned so quickly. He had a walker because he is just so sick, but he was able to walk her down the isle, and then dance with her for about 3 or 4 minuets for their Father/Daughter dance. So sweet, special and sad all at the same time. There were not many dry eyes after their dance.

My brother was our date ( my Mom & I) and he was a trooper and stuck around for a while.
It was a good weekend and made me feel so thankful for my family! Oh & I don't think I've danced that much over a weekend in quite a while!
