Playing Catch Up.

Well hello darlings. Feels like ages since I've sat down to write so today will just be a bit of catch up from the last week or so of barely writing. This past Saturday was our first event of 2011 and I felt great about how everything went. It made for a busy week with all the craziness you all know to be my current schedule anyway. But the Lord was so good and blessed us with beautiful weather and a successful event.

That kept me busy through the week, with a few breaks to see friends, hangout with Thomas, etc. It also made for a busy, HOT HOT HOT Saturday at Raymond James Stadium. I cooled down with fro yo from Yogurtology with Thomas that night and watching Harry Potter (I watched the new one, even though I haven't seen any of the others).

Sunday was perfect. Spent the morning at church, worshiping and growing with my Tampa bestie, Auburn. Followed closely by brunch @ Ellas with Nancy and Bryn, my Tampa family and got to introduce them (the first of my friends) to Thomas over Soul Food Sunday grubbing. The food was delish and I was of course delighted that 3 of my favorite people got along famously.

Friday night was spent celebrating my precious long-time friend, Sara's 25th birthday. We grew up on the lake together here in Tampa and have stayed friends from the 5th grade on. We both moved back to Tampa in recent years and picked up right where we left off. We also went to Ellas. So they fed me well all weekend.

Ok, back to Sunday. Marta, Lindsay, and I went on a super secret mission Sunday afternoon for our boys (Brent, Zach, and Thomas) but I'll have to share more on that after we give them the results tomorrow (Tuesday) night. I think we've succeeded in driving them all a little crazy with what we did, so it'll be fun to let them in on the secret. Then I can show you all the process and just how much fun those ladies are.

Found time in the crazy weekend to cook a few new recipes after a giant grocery store trip yesterday (got 40 dollars of free food too, I'm so thrifty). I made crock pot pulled pork and a delish tex mex casserole. So lunches for this week are done and done. Headed into the office shortly for post-event clean up. Just wanted to check in and let you all know I'm alive! I've survived. And I'm back on the blog.

$40 of free food, go you!! I had fro yo on Saturday form this little whole in the wall place downtown RI and it was to die!! I got strawberry with oreos, because I was deserving of a little treat. ;) Atleast I think so.
