Project 365 - Week 9

Week 9.

Well, I have been a bit MIA. This last week was a blur......2 pretty stressful days sandwiched by two really fantastic trips kept me away from my computer. But I am back and through it all, I succeeded in getting a picture every day!!!

Before I show you, I would like to ask ya'll to pray for my friend's son. He was visiting in Chile when the earthquake hit. Praise God, he was able to contact her today and he is fine. But he is there with no money (he was robbed the day before the quake) and all the ATMs are not functioning. He was supposed to leave tomorrow but the airports are closed. He is staying in a hostel. Please pray for his safety. Thanks!

Sunday

We spent the afternoon snuggling and watching movies.
Alyssa looked up at me and said "mom, when I am 50 and you are 80 we will still be doing this!"
I said "yep, only reversed!!!"

Monday

Saying goodbye to Alyssa's house :(

Tuesday

had a picture almost identical picture to this last year, just different PJs!
Taking Jared to school today

Wednesday

Left today for my girls weekend. These are my friends that I have met with the same weekend every year for the last 17 years. We are meeting in TX again this year.


Wendi using her GPS on her phone trying to figure out where the heck we are!


this is what welcomed us. The owner of the farm fixed a fire for us before we got there!
and then God fixed us up a beautiful sunset!!!


Thursday

When my group of friends gets together, we each have a job to do..
...this year I was the fire wench. :)

Friday

My chocolate lava cake debacle....
..but they tasted great!

Saturday

These are some of the best friends a girl could have!
They are such a blessing to me!

I was starting to get worried about you since you hadn't been around lately. :) I see you were out having fun though and that is great!
The fire looks all warm and cozy (wish I had one)and trying to find a farm on a GPS cracks me up. lol

Lori at The Davidson Den said...

Oh, yeah! I remember your girlfriend getaway last year! I think that's such a great idea! And the cozy fire is just icing on the cake. (That's not a dig at you about the lava cakes, I promise!) That sunrise is spectacular! *sigh* Haven't seen one of those (by choice) in a long, long time.
