Day 317 - Sunday, Nov. 14

No picture.

I actually didn't have to work in children's church and was able to go to the main service!   It is missions month and my husband wasn't preaching.  I was so excited to be able to sit WITH him in a service, I completely forgot about a picture!!!
Now, I could have taken one at lunch with our missionary or at life group that night, but so goes the trend of me not getting my camera out...ugh!

Day 310 - Saturday, Nov 6

 Sadly, we had to check out today.
This is the front of the B & B

 We have a running joke/tradition in our group.  He is called Hunka Hunka.  It's a long story how it got started, but Hunka Hunka is passed around the group each year.  Of course, turning 50, I got him on top of my birthday cake!  How crazy was it when we saw this sign in downtown LR!!!  We just had to get a picture!!
 Before everyone started heading home, we all got some pampering with a pedicure!!!  The perfect way to end a PERFECT birthday!!!

Day 309 - Friday, Nov. 5

 Today, we got up, packed a picnic lunch and headed up to Petit Jean State Park for the day.
 It is gorgeous up there and the weather was perfect!

We stopped by Fresh Market and got all sorts of cheeses, dips, fruit and crackers.
And we spread a blanket on the edge of a cliff overlooking the park

 These ladies are all amazing prayer warriors.  We have all known each other for over 20 years.  And one of the best parts of the day was spent praying for each other.  I can't even explain how much this ministered to my heart.

Day 308 - Thursday, Nov. 4

 Today was a pretty amazing day!!!
First, the Grace Korean staff took our church staff (our youth pastor couldn't make it) to lunch at the most incredible sushi restaurant.  It was so much fun to visit with them in a casual setting and get to know each other even more!!

Then my wonderful husband told me to pack my bags for two nights, that we were "getting away" for a couple of days.  What he really had planned was surprising me with 5 of my closest friends!!!  They were waiting for me at a restaurant and Steve had arranged for us all to spend 2 nights at a bed and breakfast here in Little Rock.  These ladies came from CO, TX and GA to celebrate with me!  I love them!!!
