Saturday evening I headed out with some girlfriends for an impromptu Bachelorette Party--she is getting married in St. Lucia in the middle of October! We grabbed a nice dinner & then headed out to our local piano bar for some fun! The party was pretty laid back--not too wild & crazy which was definitely nice! Congrats Tacy!!!
It had been raining off and on pretty much all day, but when we headed to the piano bar the rain had basically stopped so I dropped my umbrella off at my car--BAD CHOICE!!! We went and hung out for about an hour or so and then decided it was time to head home. We walked outside to a monsoon...it was pouring cats, dogs, & any other animal that you can think of! I had left my car parked by the restaurant because I knew I wouldn't find anything closer & especially not anything where we wouldn't have to pay...so we headed out for the 3-4 block trek to our car! Let me just say...I have not been that wet while fully dressed in a long time! Needless to say the 3 of us that were headed to our cars together were soaked head to toe and cackling as we ran down the sidewalks in our heels, traipsing through water that was no less than 6-8 in. DEEP!!! I had water running down my back all the way home--but what a fun experience! We tried to stop at an overhang and grab a picture but it was raining so hard that was nearly impossible! At least we have the memories!!!
Sunday we went to church where it seemed like we needed to re-introduce ourselves since we'd been gone for 2 weeks! We grabbed a quick lunch, went and picked up the computer, & then headed home. We got there just in time to meet my mom & grandma to head to a baby shower for my cousin! I failed to take any photos but she got some super cute stuff for their little boy! While I was gone Hubby planted our fall planters & they look soo good!
Just one of our FIVE fall pots!
When I got home, we headed to small group--what a refreshing time to be with so many couples who are striving to live for God & learn more about what living for Him looks like! Our study this time is about parenting & while Hubby & I obviously don't have kids, we're looking forward to gaining lots of insight that I'm sure we'll use in the future!
Whew...now it's time to start a new week--but a short one for me because our annual fall festival is this weekend & our office closes at noon on Friday! YIPEE!!!
