If you live in Mississippi and would love to join with us....Go visit Lady Katherine on my side bar or the link above....and let her know....

Mississippi Magnolia Southern Belles met at Corner Bakery Cafe last Friday...Sept. 25, 2009....for our luncheon. It was an exciting day for me and all the Belles. ....Of course we missed those that was unable to come & join us on this

'Special' day.......But we are planning to do this again as soon as Lady Katherine recover from her surgery that is schedule for this month. Please keep Lady Katherine in your prayers...Thank you Lady Katherine for hosted this special day for us. You are so 'SPECIAL' to all of us.

Before I start....I would like to tell you about Debra at It Came To Pass... I met her 3 weeks ago ....She found me and contacted me (e-mail) She told me she was from Laurel. I was so excited when I heard she live within a mile from me. We met at McAllister with Rosemarie at Sugarplum Cottage...three weeks before we were going to meet with Lady Katherine and the other Belles. It's a small world! And to top it off about being in small world....I ask Debra ....What was her last name? And when I heard her name....I said ...."Do you have a son name Ben? And she said Yes! I said...OH! My Goodness! Ben(her son) and Kandi(my daughter) were in Kindergarten together. And I remember that we all prayed for Ben's Mom. Debra was going through Chemo-treament. It's so amazing.....How we got connected again....Just Amazing! We had a great luncheon and made plan that we were all going to ride together to Flowood, MS. ...on Sept.25th to meet Lady Katherine and all the Mississippi Southern Belles.

When we arrived in Flowood, Corner Bakery Cafe. This beautiful tablescapes was waiting for us. Lady Katherine and Donna did this beautiful tablescapes. And Lady Katherine and Christine made a 'Cute Lil Happy' for us. It was soooo sweet of them! Lady Katherine made the arrangement with her gourds she harvest...and bought the three Lil Pie pumkins to add to the arrangement....It was so Beautiful! Love the Sunflowers! She did a fantastic job!

  1. Hey Kathy! What a great job you did posting about our special day! Had such a great time. Hopefully we will be able to do this again sometime in the future. Hope you are having a great day today!

    Take care, Blessings,

  2. I saw some of these on Debra's page and so enjoyed reading about the special day you all had and now reading from your perspective of the same event. I love how each person adds a little something special to the telling of a story. Something that makes it unique. Thanks for sharing this fun time! God bless all the Southern Belles!


  3. Oh, Katherine Ellen you did such a wonderful job. I love how you told about the event! You make me sound so wonderful! I just simple old me! lol You got some pictures I didn't. I laughed at the one you got of me explaining to the ladies on other table, I would have loved to had that one in my post lol! So glad all four of you live close enough to get together! Donna lives an hour from my house. Going the back roads it takes me two or so hours to get to where you live. I was up until 2:00 am and back up here at 7am I just wanted to try and visit some. I stayed on the phone with a blogger for hours last night! lol I going to email you while I am here.
