First of all, I really appreciate the outpouring of sympathy for my stolen purse. It was a pain, I still have no wallet, and they got my good lipstick. MAC Viva Glam V. It's my favorite. Gone.
Do you think they're using it? Doubtful.
They also stole a brand new skirt I found at Forever 31. It was the only skirt in the whole three level store that was appropriate for a woman with children who may need her to bend over a tie a shoe every now and then. $17.99 down the drain. Another reason why Neiman Marcus is not an option for me.
Anyway, let me make it very clear that I am so stinkin' proud of my husband and his awards and being honored and all. Seriously, the Lord was so faithful in sending them in a time when he needed encouragement. it felt a little like the Lord was giving him an unexpected high-five and I'm so thankful.
I'm also incredibly thankful for the weekend we had with dear friends. When we first moved to Dallas, my friend Kitsie, and her husband Ray, who had gone to SMU, invited Trey and I to join their supper club. We would get together once a month, cook, eat, and laugh our heads off.
Kitsie and Ray moved away but the supper club remained. Ten years later, we still get together at least once a month to fellowship, cook, eat, and still, laugh our heads off. These are dear friends and we've all committed to walk through life together through the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sometimes, the ugly refers to, but is not limited to, my hair.
We're all beginning to hit our 40's and, when we do, it's cause for celebration.
Last weekend, we celebrated Drew's.
We had chocolate cake - extremely important. Forty candles, not so much.
One of our friends, Gini, knows Ron Hall, co-author of the book, Same Kind of Different as Me.
And Ron has a boat.
And finally, after the boat ride, we all went to dinner and we were delighted when Ron joined us. He had some good Denver stories and we loved hearing about the larger-than-life relationship between the two men.
Yeah, I thought so.
How was your weekend?
