Wordful Wednesday ~ "I'm a big girl..."

Yep, that's what I told my hubby when I told him I wanted to drive a couple of hours south by myself to meet up with some bloggy friends yesterday.

"I don't think so. You won't make it. And there are too many crazy drivers out on the road at night! I'll go with you."

That's what he said to me.

Okay, I'll admit it. He was right, 'cause man, if I had driven by myself, I would SO be dead on the side of the road right now.

Not a chance in this world that I would have been able to stay awake driving back at 11 p.m. last night. I. Am. TIRED!!!!! And WAY too old to do crazy things like this!?!?!?!

Except that it was TOTALLY worth it!!! :-) I met Mimi, Beth, Liz, Tara, Mel, and Miti ~ some of the best ladies in the world last night ~ and we had such a good time. I can't tell you everything we talked about, because then, I might have to kill you, but... I CAN share a few pictures with you!

Beth was SO sweet to bring these for each of us.
How special... and I LOVE the verse!!!

What was Miti laughing at?
Oh, yeah, at this point, we all started breaking out our cameras,
and the fun began!!! Great server, by the way! He really put up with a lot! :-)

Outtake #1!
I SO caught this picture at just the wrong right moment!

Much better! :-)

Everyone, minus Mimi, the picture taker!

Outtake #2! I wonder what Mimi was thinking?
Poor Mel, is looking at her camera like it just birthed an alien!
And me? I am nowhere to be seen!
At least Liz and Miti were smiling! I think those two
ladies must look beautiful in every picture they take!

Everyone! Very nice!
From L to R:
Yours truly, Liz, Mimi, Tara, Miti, Beth, and Mel!

We ate here:


Mel and Tara!

Miti and Beth!

Liz and Mimi!

Before we said our goodbyes! So sad! :-(
We had a great time. It was amazing how easily everyone
got along! It was like we had known each other for years.
I really hope that we all get to see each other again sometime...

Fore More Wordful Wednesdays, visit Angie at Seven Clown Circus.

Living in His JOY, HOPE, and PEACE...

***Don't forget to pray for someone today!

Oh my word...why would you post all those wonderful pictures of me? LOL Blogworld has seen the worst of Mimi in the last few posts from all my lovely friends. :)
Had so much fun! Thanks for making the trip. So glad you did!

Mocha Momma said...

I'll bet that was a fun time. I saw Beth's pictures too. She and Mimi are sure tall.

Great times! Wish I'd been there, but I'd of had to fly for about 6 hours just to get to an airport in the close vicinity.

Someday we'll have a get together for us west coasters.

Happy 4th of July

Miti said...

oH, CC, you got the best pictures! Your husband is such a sweet guy. I was nervous about driving back home so late for 2 1/2 hrs but I made it home alright, just a little tried and A LOT HAPPY that I met y'all. I hope it's ok for me to snatch those shots. I should have taken more pics. I haven't blogged about our little outing yet, but I will soon. So glad you (& your husband) were able to come. Thanks for the pics too.
