Memorial Day is the best day to honor our brave veterans and for some of us, it is also a much needed three day weekend. We talked about our Memorial weekend plans at our May 21 Monday Night Twitter Party. Our moms chatted about the farthest we traveled on a three day weekend, where we’re going this year and our dream weekend getaways.Just a friendly warning that your mouth may water when you read what’s on our tweeters menu for the big day.
