Good Morning!! I was the bratty baby sister that drove him crazy with our sister always being the peacemaker! I remember the times my mom & dad would ask him to watch me and he would complain. He is the most amazing cook so I loved him watching me....we always ate great! I thought he could do no wrong & all of my friends thought he was so cute. He thought I talked too much( I know yall are surprised by that) and when I would not be quiet he made me get out of the car and walk the last few blocks to the house, I of course was heart broken and over dramatic and was furious that my mom thought the idea was very humorous. He is the oldest of us 3 kids & very successful, one of the smartest guys I have ever met. Him and I are completely opposite.....he a lot more focused and serious than I am, I dont believe he has a goofy bone in his body. He has always achieved excellence in whatever he has done. My mom and him were very close & the day we lost her changed him forever. He gave me my first nephew & niece, I was just a kid but he entrusted them with me & I love them with all my heart. It is so hard to wrap my head around that he is a grandpa.....to 5 babies. Happy Beautiful Friday yall!!, it has been 6 years since I have seen my "BIG" brother & I have missed him with all my heart. He lives in Arizona and of course I own the grill (enough said). My precious Daddy called awhile back trying to get us all together......that is the one thing that changes when you loose a mom..... us moms, and I see it now because I am a mom, are the ones that "make" everyone get together. We all planned a date and it is now here, today my precious little family will travel to Dallas and we will ALL be together for the first time in WOW I do not remember.... I am so thankful...... I pray for my sisters travels from East Texas and for my brother's travels. I wll try NOT to be in the car alone with him because if he thought I talked a lot when I was a kid, OH mylanta I believe I need to take my walkin' shoes. I am blessed and I will cherish this time..... I will bask in delight hanging with my BIG brother!!
I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
