Good Morning!! While I was sleeping.......lets back up to before I was sleeping. I have two caterings today, totally 280 people. We have planned for how it will work and prepared the crew. Everything was going as planned until a phone call came last nght that revealed, I was to be one down in the kitchen because of sickness. My heart was full was anger, frustration, panic. My first call was to Shelby and then the rest of my kitchen co-workers. We pulled together another plan and hung up. I was frustrated as I went to bed honestly not knowing how we were going to pull this off. Back to while I was sleeping.... My two boys came to the grill during the night, and worked along side their Dad, to ensure all of our guest would be taken care of today. I arrived this morning a little before four and sent Shelby to bed, he had now been up 24 hours. My heart has been filled with joy and my frustration and panic melted away. The most important people in my life, with their actions, showed me I was important and sacrificed their sleep so I could sleep.There really are no words when you find out, you have been taken care of, someone has your back. Happy Wednesday yall, for all of the loved ones in your life, do your actions reflect how much you love them and appreciate them? Do something today for a loved one that really shows how you feel, we tend to get so wrapped up in helping strangers and friends, that we let our family down. Thank you Shelby, Taylor and Branum yall made a girl feel really loved and absolutly special.... I love yall with all my heart, thanks for having my back:)
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.
