Day 323 - Saturday, Nov 19

 I spent most of my day recovering from the 15 boys from youth group that spent the night at our house last night and cleaning.  But I did make time to meet a friend for an iced latte!!

Day 322 - Friday, Nov 18

My friend, Holly, turned 50 this week.
Her husband had a fantastic surprise party for her tonight.

This guy in front of me is in the LEFT turn lane..
His blinker says he is turning RIGHT.

Day 320 - Wednesday, Nov 16

Today was our last Bible Study lesson and we ended with a luncheon!  These ladies add so much to my life and I am very thankful for them!!

Day 319 - tuesday, Nov 15

 What do you do on a rainy, dreary day?
Make cookies!!

One of my favorite books was made into a movie and went straight to DVD.  I was so excited and got some of my friends that had read it together to watch it.  We were SO disappointed.  It was nothing like the book.....very sad.  Although we all agreed it redeemed itself when Hugh Jackman surprisingly appeared in it!!!

Day 318 - Monday, Nov 14

She caught me!
When Lily needs to go out side, she sits and stares at you till you notice her.  I wish I could have gotten a picture of her staring Steve down, but she kept seeing me out of the corner of her eye.  Most likely she was thinking "quit taking the stinkin pictures and let me outside!"

Day 317 - Sunday, Nov 13

 The ladies in my life group decided to go to Spirited Art together!  I am getting good at this now! ha! Tonight we painted this manger scene.  This is the whole class when we were done!

Day 316 - Saturday, Nov 12

 Tonight was the Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestra concert.
You can see Jared's head peeking up above his music stand.
 The title was Beethoven in Blue Jeans, so all the kids wore jeans. They did a great job!  Then after the ASYO, we stayed for the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra concert which was awesome!
It was the maestro's birthday so they had these hats for all the audience to wear when he came out...he has crazy hair!! It was pretty funny.  My niece came up from OBU to join us....I think it actually looks like an extension of her hair! ha!

This breakfast sandwich was!!!
The rest of the day I spent SCOURING my house with bleach and lysol.
You see everyone is sick and Steve is sick AGAIN with a cold..ugh.

Day 314 - Thursday, Nov 10

Today I was tired and I didn't have any where to be.  So I stayed in my robe and slippers for most of the morning.  I took advantage of the quiet to spend some much needed time with God.  It was a pretty great morning!

I left the house at 8:30 and didn't make it home tell after 4:00.
Wednesdays can be so crazy for me this time of year!

Day 312 - Tuesday, Nov. 8

It's always a sad day when your friends leave and vacation is over!
I spent the day at home....laundry, cleaning, catching up on my bible study...nothing really picture worthy.  So, this picture came from the other day.  The leaves around Little Rock have suddenly burst with color!!  I think this is the most color I have seen since we moved here!

Day 311 - Monday, Nov. 7

 for our last night together, the girls went to Spirited Art.  It's a Girls-Nite-Out art class in town and was so much fun.  We painted this Tree of Life.  You can go here to learn more about it!

Day 310 - Sunday, Nov. 6

Today was another great day.
I love when a sermon at church speaks directly to me..that's what happened today!  We then came home, had lunch and proceeded to all nap the afternoon away!!  perfect!
We went to Conway for dinner (30 minutes from here) with Wendi and Jerry and then Steve and Nathan enjoyed some guy time out on the deck.

Day 309 - Saturday, Nov. 5

I've known these ladies for 21 years and am so thankful for them!
The guys were not too keen on posing for a picture, so we just got a picture of all the girls.  Today was so relaxing......we cooked a big brunch at my house, played cards, went shopping, the guys went horse back riding (my husband got thrown! he's ok!) pizza for dinner and the hogs game!  It was a great day!

Day 308 - Friday, Nov 4

 The guys hired a guide and went fishing for the day and we made them lunches!
 The girls just hung out and then had lunch at my new favorite restaurant, Big Orange.
Tonight was Senior night and our last football game....waaahhhhhh!!!
My friends all went to Conway for the evening while Steve and I enjoy celebrating Jared and watching him march and direct for the last time.  This was a hard one.

Day 307 - Thursday, Nov 3

I have been waiting for this day all week!!!
3 of my best friends and their husbands are coming in for the weekend!
Wendi lives only 30 minutes from me, so we started the day out with Brazilian coffee!  Then we spent the afternoon cooking all sorts of appetizers for dinner.  The rest of the crew will be in around 6:00pm!

Day 306 - Wednesday, Nov. 2

Happy Birthday to me!
My bible studies friends had a little party for me today...I just love these ladies and am so happy they are in my life!  Later my daughter took me for coffee and my husband treated me to a wonderful dinner out!!  It was a great day!
