On Saturday morning, Mr Marvin got up and drove Miss Arlene to Birmingham. She was all excited to meet one of her favorite bloggers at Barnes and Noble at the Summit in Birmingham. Leslie Anne Tarabella, would be signing her book, The Majorettes Are Back in Town!
My friend, Sandy at I Majored in Home Economics introduced mt to Leslie's blog, Fairhope Supply Company. I quickly came to love her sassy southern style and I was not surprised when she went on to write weekly columns for the Mobile Register. Now she writes for Birmingham News and Huntsville Times. You can find her columns online at AL.com. You can find her blog at LeslieAnneTarabella.com. on my Blog Roll. I will admit when I first saw Leslie Anne's last name, I thought she had made it up because she comes up with some of the funniest names on her blog posts. However, her husband is a transplanted Yankee with Italian Roots. Her family took a trip to Italy and I could hardly wait for each new post about the Tarabellas travel across the pond.
You all know how it is with Blog Friends....you feel as though you know them. Well let me tell you that Leslie Anne is just as sweet and genuine in person as she is on her blog. We hugged and chatted like old friends. I was there early so I got a chance to visit and get some pictures.
After getting my book signed, Marvin and I checked out Daughter in Law, Katy's favorite restaurant at the Summit.
Chuys....oh my goodness it was good.
The Summit is an upscale shopping center in Birmingham. You might wonder why it is called the Summit.
Birmingham is a city on multiple ridges....Today the sun was peeping out and the temperature was 67!! A great day all the way around!! Thanks Leslie Anne for making your book signing such a fun event.
